The line has been drawn. Gilad is NOT playing any games! He knows Tama is innocent and is in danger. But he also knows his teammates will not understand, and has taken measures to make them a non threat. And does so with awesome results!
Robert Venditti takes what we learned in the first issue, and kicks it up a few notches. The last issue was the best thing I've read all year. Was. This takes it to a whole new level. His writing in this issue is both explosive and then sobering all in one issue. This is why Robert Venditti is perfect for the new upcoming ongoing series Wrath of The Eternal Warrior! I can't wait to read it.
The art team of Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite is breathtaking just to say the least. The splitting up of the main story, then the events in the book. Brilliant! The explosive fight scene was worth the price of admission alone. Then throw in the action contained in the book! It was too much! I cried some.
As for the covers, as I do love them all, I can't help but feel that some of them are purposefully misleading. Which is awesome because it adds to the overall presentation of the story. Brilliant on Valiant's part!
All I have to say at this point is this. Story arc of the year.
