Simon and Jessica have problems. Simon is aboard an Ungaran ship that’s coming apart at the seams, while Jessica is trapped beneath the surface of the planet below, attempting to convince its inhabitants to save themselves. But there is more to this story than double jeopardy. Who knew this two-part story would lay the groundwork for several plotlines to be developed later? Kudos to Tim Seeley for thinking ahead.


And still, the personal developments continue, in one form or another. Both GLs began looking for employment last issue, and this issue we learn the results of their respective job interviews. It’s not a total win/win, but satisfying nonetheless.


The cover is a wee bit misleading, suggesting a supporting character who spends much of this issue at the brink of the death has a greater role. Perhaps McKone and Ribeiro weren’t provided adequate information, but that’s going to happen occasionally. No big deal. It’s doesn’t matter much against the 20 pages inside.


Ronan Cliquet returns to the drawing board for this issue. I don’t mind the intermittent issues shared among a few artists, so long as each can maintain the established quality of their work. Cliquet seems to do that, and given his seeming commitment to the title, I’m happy to enjoy his occasional issue, rather than expect more qork at a lesser standard.
