  1. I really enjoyed this issue, but your review was well written and fair. Kudos.

  2. Hey thanks! Like most of Wood’s books this series is kind of a see-saw ride of arcs I enjoy and arcs I don’t. DMZ, Northlanders, The Massive; they’ve all felt this way to me. I find a constant issue I have with his work is when he gets towards the end of a series all the arcs and all the issues are very dark and heavy, there is little levity to balance it out. That lack of balance makes the darker, more serious moments lack punch. It’s the juxtaposition of the good times with the bad that give a darker moment it’s emotional resonance. For me, this series has been especially without balance ever since “The Death.” I really hope the next arc is a lighter adventure for Belit and Conan to build to the big finish of the series in 8 issues.

    • @USPUNX ~ I really liked this individual issue, but as a series, I really agree with you on the points made both in your review & the comment here afterward. And yeah, now that you point out the issue with Gianfelice’s BĂ©lit, I can see that too. I liked her character depiction here more than other recent arcs, but I’ll agree some of the panels bordered on gratuitous, & while I think you actual need some of that for this given character, it may have been a bit too heavy-handed in spots.

      Great review, & I’m really glad for the dialogues we get here on iFanboy for some not-so-mainstream titles. Definitely makes the reading experience more enjoyable.
