This volume contains six separate stories focussed on minor characters – some known and some new. This is a stark change from the heavy reading of the previous books. This may seem like a light interlude but all are part of the bigger picture and connected to the plot. One of these is a shocking twist indeed and all are expertly told.
There are guest artists for two of the stories but they both keep to the established conventions. This has the same high standards and it is great to see the art is given as much weight and freedom as the words.
An excellent Thumbs Up!
