Abram and Myshka continue their strange journey into the unknown to rescue their child that was taken from them for a supposedly higher cause. As I read this issue I became more embroiled into the unknown and slightly confused. Abram gets put to sleep and experiences an interesting flashback to before he attained his powers. You’ll get a glimpse into his past but as he’s coming to the flashback dream state warps around the would be reality of the unknown. As Abram and his companion come around to realize that they are trapped…or are they?
Matt Kindt, the master of twists, turns and smoke clouds, does it again. He has me questioning what I just read. Yes, this is a definite reread issue, too. You have to as you’re reading this and trying to take it all in. It’s way too easy to miss some of the subtle nuances. Matt takes you on a journey to the center of the unknown making me see things I didn’t believe could happen in this psychological science fiction tale.
Ryan Winn with Stefano Gaudiano did a bang up job on this issue. Between lights, shadows and hallucinations your eyes will be glued to these pages just like in prior issues. As if the pencils and inks by Ryan and Stefano weren’t enough, the coloring work by David Baron pushes this art team through the dimensional rift that is the unknown. It feels like they added the 4th dimension on this two dimensional art form.
I’ve now read this issue twice just to make sure I didn’t miss anything and, yes I did have a couple of whoa moments. I’ve really enjoyed this series so far, but some of this has shades of 90’s Valiant ,and one of my favorite prior titles Solar. I can’t wait to see where Matt Kindt takes us next issue. Speaking of next issue, the sneak peak at the cover of book four blew me away. Let us know what you thought in the comment section below.
