This issue beautifully builds upon last month's shocking cliff-hanger. It is a credit to Jeff Lemire's skill as a writer that this issue manages to be so gripping despite a lack of action until the final pages. Such is the tale that Lemire is spinning.
The artwork by Dustin Nguyen continues to impress. Nguyen's style is uniquely streamlined yet simultaneously packed with detail. The final scenes showcase Nguyen's talent for character design as we see even more uniquely modeled robots.
