I'll be honest, I feel underwhelmed. It had some good parts but, it had almost every cliche in the book, and felt very anticlimactic for the ending of a long arc like that.

I keep wanting to like this book more than I actually do. I mean the concept is amazing! You're telling me there's giant gods hovering in space that are slowly harvested for their materials, which are then used by an entire society? And a religion pops up around that? And there's all sorts of political subterfuge too? Awesome!

But for some reason the story never completely clicks with m more

After last issue, I was sort of despondent about this series. I really want to like it, and I think there are some neat, cool, interesting ideas on display that have led to some really dope issues in the past. This third arc has come across as filler to me. I would have much rather had the series go on break, as indie series tend to do, to give the main artist time to draw what comes next. Instead more
