This is a complex volume. All the fancy intercutting and the huge cast makes it a nightmare to follow. Despite the wonderful art using colour to superbly differentiate between the scenes this can be a bit of a head scratcher. You can’t be sure if you aren’t supposed to know why things are happening or if you missed some small detail you shouldn’t have. From last volume’s demystifying we go straight back to mystifying.
The art is a wonder to behold. After eleven volumes things are never lazy or predictable. There is still as much passion in the drawing and colouring as ever.
Thumbs Up but you are ready for the check about now.
