I am always amazed how much can be conveyed with no words.

A few comics I have seen recently have had blocks of the issue with no dialogue at all and it is so powerful. The first few pages of this issue are breathtaking, Bliss’ fall to the depths and eventual re-emergence are simply stunning and so evocative considering there are no words. Watching Bliss return to her former glory is a thing of beauty, seeing her inspire the underdogs left behind in the wake of D’kayde gives me goosebumps while the final confrontation is so well done it feels like closure as once again it comes down to the heroic trio of old.

I’m not sure if this is the final issue of the story or not but I hope there is more to come as it has been a fantastic read with both the story and artwork seeming to surpass itself with every issue. The saga of Bloody Bliss and the battles she fought internally as well as externally have been epic from the beginning and I would be interested to see where it went from here

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
