For crying out loud! Where's the thread on this???
Clearly a top note to go out on. Not only does it feature the return of a fan-favorite, but it's done with respect - not mutilating the memory of the character like a lot of writers would have done. (Even if it wouldn't be intentional.) And the fact that it was Cal's art only sealed the deal.
I would have expected myself to be disappointed that it ended without bringing T-Bird out of the wall, or to his home reality, or to consciousness, or anything like that. But the *way* it was all done made up for T-Bird being in the same place physically as he was at the beginning of the issue. It was also nice to not see the spotlight strictly on T-Bird. The subplot dealing with Proteus' situation was worked in well and it all flowed together so naturally.
Probably my favorite issue since the last face-off with Hyperion.
