Throughout this series, Kirkman and Walker have been telling a compelling story about a hero’s race against his own biological clock, attempting to handle his nemeses once and for all while ensuring his family’s safety.  As a result, I was bracing myself for a fittingly intense finale to this series, sure that the stakes would only increase as the Destroyer’s time runs out.  Boy was I wrong.  I had to check to make sure it was still the same team working on this book by the end, because I could think of no other reason for the fizzling finish to this story than that some new team had been assigned to the book who were unaware of what had taken place in the previous four issues.  The way the Destroyer defeats his biggest foe is so ridiculous that I assumed that it was just a meaningless dream sequence (and I’m still not even sure that I’m wrong).  Worse yet, his story seems to be resolved by about page 9 of the book, and then there’s just an additional 7 or 8 pages of playing out the string that had no impact whatsoever.  One of the things that was so striking about this series when it started was its unpredictability, as Kirkman seemed determined to defy expectations.  The only expectation this final issue of the series defied though was my expectation that Robert Kirkman can’t write a bad story.
