Laura has no choice. She has to go underground to find the goth-goth-gothity-goth of the Morrigan. Is this the most illadvised underworld-related decision since Orpheus decided to see how Eurydice was doing in the back seat? To find out, read the comic that people are literally calling "The one by GILLEN/MCKELVIE/WILSON with the very long title."

Diabolically divine pop-god Lucifer is in trouble. She offers superfan Laura an unprecedented deal if she helps. It’s a bargain. A Faustian bargain, and they always turn out so well. Who knows who Laura will turn to fulfill it? We do. Clearly. It’s our comic. You can know too if you buy this fine pictorial narrative with your human money coins.

The mystery is solved. But does pop-god Lucifer like the answer? The answer is a word that rhymes with "Go", "Blow" and "Pro". If you think the answer rhymes with "Cow" I applaud you for your unconventional nature. It's good to experiment. We're experimenting with being Awesome for four issues in a row. JOIN US.

Wait... A comic book wedding where both parties actually go through with it?

I'm baffled, speechless and genuinely happy how fun and sweet this issue was. Ben truly is a gentle soul and that's a pretty cool family to be marrying into.

I like that they brought the subject up, but i don't think Bendis gets to make Miles say "who cares that i'm black? I don't want to be a 'black Spider-Man'. I want to just be Spider-Man", when that's literally the reason why he created Miles. And, hey, i'm glad he did.

In any case, good issue, and i love the way Sara Pichelli draws characters of color.

Hate how every comic book has to have some giant disaster happening. It hits my suspension of disbelief pretty hard. As for the premisse of the event itself, it's excellent, but i have questions whether they will deliver a story and conclusion with the quality that the premisse deserves.

I agree with the law, BTW.
