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
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
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.
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.
