Well, this was an impressive issue, in the same way that previous issues were impressive (and in a way that most comics aren't).
There is...an intelligence here to the complexity of this world that I'm frankly shocked by. Not just the structure of the houses, but the rituals, the purposes of each segment of society, and most importantly the characters. The closest to 'evil' we've seen is the older diamond prince, and yet that group of antagonists is balanced by a 'good son'. Their argument is, once again, surprisingly delicate; the good prince argues as much for pragmatism as for morality.
The whole thing is just astonishingly well crafted, without any single bit blowing my mind or really making me 'think' per se. It's a straightforward, but well done, fantasy tale and already this world feels real, ancient, intricate.
The Beowolf backup is much more straightforward, but no less fun.
The art for both is gorgeous. Very beautiful stuff.
