Great finale! Loved this final issue, the sense of scale as the showdown approaches in the city. The energy of the artwork is compelling once again, and the sense of the individual standing up for themselves is really heightened. I wasn't sure what was going to happen and was kept on edge for 95% of the time! Hoping they don't revisit this, as the miniseries really worked well and I don't feel it more

I liked some of the action in this, but fundamentally this issue was hampered by the overall idea of this final series. Why introduce a great gang of characters only to then have no development for any of them, nor any for Baltimore? The seeds were sown for lots of cool characters a few series back and then they sort of neglected them in the end, and baltimore didn't really need them for anythin more

Great stuff, at the same standard as the last series. Less immediately supernatural which is fine. I think this might be one of my favourite mini series, hoping they stick to the 4 issue per series. I also like that time has passed visually. When the violence hits its incredibly memorable and shocking; serves to kick off this story with plenty of mystery and energy.

This issue had one good scene. So it's an improvement on the previous two issues but still dragging. The red king entering the Vatican is a great moment that plays to the strengths of the gothic artwork, watching his intersect with history through the crumbling iconography was great.

Really good 2nd issue, the page designs in this are excellent. I like how there's a mini mystery that is solved within this issue, but the main plot has only just been touched on. Artwork's good, the characters are varied and the world our main character has to exist in is both psychedelic and totally down to earth. Eager for next one!

This is a great series so far. I'm very impressed with the stylistic look Eric Zawadzki brings to the book; there are many interesting layouts, as the artist makes a lot of interesting decisions i.e. the two page spread with the circular maze with Marlow within, surrounded by images of him struggling to push a boulder forward. So much is conveyed with his art; I love it. And the writer is giving u more

This series is so fun and the artwork is clean and welcoming and expressive. Everything feels really well done and I love the faces of the characters and how small gestures carry a lot of meaning. I think what's so good is that the series really develops and there's always a new sense of things moving onwards.

Super stuff. This issue was faster paced in terms of the visuals, it felt like I was getting a good mix of new information/action and a healthy dose of psychology from the main character. The only part that's not so clear weirdly is the baby, which kinda hasn't clicked for me yet, but it's still something that likely will develop.

Gah, this is disappointing basically. The first issue of this final run was ok, but as I said in my previous review, it's trying to cover A LOT of ground and it's stretching itself thinly.

Am I the only one who's not sure if this is actually all that good? I love the concept of the main character having Alzheimer's/dementia that is alleviated by the magic sword, but I'm not totally sure the art is expressive enough, and I kinda of don't get anything from the characters faces...

This issue was awesome. The action scenes are inventive and I absolutely loved getting an insight into the douche bag villain.
