With this issue, the seemingly unconnected subplots of this series have begun to lock together like puzzle-pieces. Holly Black has done a fine job of giving the readers just enough information to hold their interest without stretching out the mystery of this opening arc. And we get to see some old familiar faces from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman in this issue as well.
The artwork for this issue proves equally impressive. I predict Lee Garbett will one day be held in as high esteem as Peter Gross and the many artists who worked on The Sandman. And the color art by Antonio Fabela is just as skillfully done.
