This issue is so depressing on so many levels!
First, we only have one more issue now till this series is done. Super bummer. But also, we get some pretty heavy shit involving a major character and it was so sad to see what happened to him. Jeff Lemire has done such a great job with all of the character interactions in this series that you really form a weird bond with these people. So when someone gets hurt, or worse, it is just a gut punch. Of course it makes it worse (or better?) that Jeff Lemire can also draw these heart wrenching moments with his gorgeous pencils. (Or sometimes show brutal, violent moments such as a group of Hybrids attacking the bad guys.)
I don’t know what Jeff Lemire has plans for in his final issue but you can definitely expect one thing: It’s going to be super depressing. But, it should also have the warmth and gorgeous pencils we’ve seen since issue #1 of this series. I might get misty-eyed when I finish this series but damn it, I can’t imagine anyone not being the same way.
