This series has been up and down for me, mostly because I still can't pin down where it's going. While this is absolutely a good thing, it also makes for a tough read at some points. While it hopefully continues in this interesting direction, I also hope things become a bit clearer in the future. With so many new creatures and an ever-expanding world, it's a bit much to keep track of sometimes.
This creative team is symbiotic, though. The art and writing are tight, stellar, and gorgeous. The art is especially great in this issue, with some of the more interesting creatures that have been put on display given incredible life in these pages. It looks weird, feels weird, and reads weird, all in ways that I've yet to see in comics, and in ways that are really, really beautiful.
This is an odd series, but I like it quite a bit. As it continues, I hope it takes on a bit more clarity, but it's been a fun trip so far.
