This is a difficult book to talk about because of how intricate it is, but it's safe to say that it's all being handled masterfully. Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie are the creators of something very special, and now, years later, as things come full circle, we're seeing the care and the immense planning it's taken to get it from those early issues to what we're now reading.
As always, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson have created something gorgeous in terms of the art. Scenes of energy, fire, and explosions pop off the page in a way that not many comics are able to do. Wilson's colors bring a life to this series that does an immense amount to enhance what is already terrific work.
The excitement of where this series is headed is fantastic, especially as we flash back to scenes from the beginning and explore what they mean now, after seeing what all of these characters have gone through.
This begins the countdown towards the last issues, as the rest of this final year runs its course. It will be interesting to see how Gillen and McKelvie bring it home, and what the gods have in store for us as we witness what could be their final moments, thanks to their two-year curse, or each other.
