There is a dramatic conclusion with twists, turns and shocks that really grips you. Then it descends into a Return of the King style epilogue-fest as if Vaughan changes his mind and doesn’t want to let things go. Or maybe wants to finish things in a terminal fashion and move on.
The art is disappointing compared to the wonderful colours we have seen previously. Much of the book is murky and the clean lines disappear in places as if someone else has been filling in. The wonderful faces and expressions are still there but little else that stands out.
The series peaked long before this volume but you care so much about the characters you have to stay till the final curtain. For this reason is just scrapes in as a Thumbs Up!
