Sequels. Generally a bad idea. Wormwood wrapped things up nicely. The world got saved and our heroes were left on firm ground to get on with their lives. Why do we need to return; particularly for a single issue special. Is it because there is some unfinished business or does Mr Ennis need another gold plated yacht? Well it seems that he is a bit of a softy and couldn’t help but revisit Danny’s love life. We all wanted him to get the girl and our hearts bled for him when he didn’t. This tale didn’t need to be written but we are glad it was. The single issue works as he has enough time to re-capture the emotions between Danny and Maggie. Plus you can’t get enough of Pope Jacko now can you. The art is the same high quality stuff but isn’t Jacen Burrows! I really didn’t notice this until it was pointed out to me. The new artist Rob Steen does a great job preserving the style and generating great facial expressions necessary to convey the strong emotions in this work. Another Thumbs Up!
