When I saw this book on the Pull List, I commented on how I really had wished that I had no idea what was going on in Fear Agent anymore and how I wished I had gotten this last arc in trade. I figured that I would have no memory of what happened before this issue and would be totally lost, just like I was in the last issue.

Boy, was I wrong.

Turns out, the last few issues of this arc didn’t really matter. This issue was half flashback and half explanation of what had happened through the entire series. And it was all good. The flashback scenes were what really got me, seeing a young Heath Huston stumbling through life and seeing his past really helped flesh out some of the last remaining questions about who the character is. By the end of this issue, I felt I truly understood what made Heath Huston a Fear Agent. Sprinkled in between the flashback are scenes of space lizards fighting evil time-travelling brains, a prime example of the crazy sci-fi action that makes this title great.

While the art isn’t at the levels it once was, it was still pretty great. Hawthorne and Moore do a great job with the fight scenes while also showing some great emotional acting in the flashbacks. There’s also one of those great “Tony Moore” faces in the football scene when the character looks puzzled and somehow his lips turn all the way to one side of his face.

All in all, this issue reminded me why I loved this title in the first place, and how much I will miss it. Thank goodness that Fear Agent didn’t stumble to the finish line.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good
