Every year I go to my families family reunion. I go knowing that I’m probably gonna run into those of the family that I’d rather not. That and the usual sibling / cousin shenanigans ensue. So, with this in mind, I can see why the Anni-Padda brothers prefer to live separate lives. Now, put the all in a confined space, IN space, only hilarity can ensue.
Fred Van Lente continues a very successful arc, showing his talent for telling us what we knew what was gonna happen. It was just a pleasure reading the interaction between all the brothers. It was the other side of the same coin of Neela’s interaction with her future self. Or was it? It seems her “Future Self” is hiding something, what, is still yet to be revealed. All that…and nanites! Fred is fantastically keeping us in the dark!
Francis Portela did a great job showing us that Neela really does have that science swag! That nano being! Makes me wonder about another Valiant hero we all know and love. Oh, what the future will bring?
Andrew Dalhouse’s colors were brilliant. Finally we get a great shot of what the time portals look like from the front, before it was “destroyed” with all the Brilliantly swirling colors. Great job.
The main cover could be the Anni-Padda family portrait. The different brothers, with the contrasting hair colors. All different, but the same. All looking forward towards a common goal.
Overall this was a fun read, as well as upping the ante for Ivar. And Gilad. And definitely for Aram.
