"Glory" takes a breather for an issue, with the characters mentally preparing themselves for war with a slew of guest artists to show us the way. It's a quiet issue, but one loaded with great characterization and some nice fill-in art.
i think the character moments work and the art is still really good and surprisingly consistent, given how many artists are involved. but im not sure the plot holds up all that well. ill have to reread the whole thing, but it feels like after lots of mysterious set-up, things are becoming rather simplicistic rather quickly. im not sure if the parents behaviour makes much sense, or if nanajas introduction makes sense dramatically, given the whole thing is about to end.
I think, ironically, a LOT got screwed up by the flailing numbers. There's been a strange mix of both off the rails and things just getting pocketed away. But the last page was badass, which is impressive considering many of those characters should be terrible.
