The two prelude issues absolutely killed it. XO keeps going back with A&A for my favorite comic title, and this month it pulled slightly ahead again. Art was perfect for the story, and the story was tight and exciting.
I admit to some concern about taking a huge outer space trip this early in the series, if at all. We've already got Aric returning to Earth centuries after his birth because of faster-than-light space travel. Now we're doing it again, and there are three unlovely options I can see as a result:
- Aric returns to Earth in the future.
- Aric finds a way to time travel into the past (our present).
- Aric returns to the Earth in the present and we're just suppose to accept it.
Not excited about the possibility of any of these, but we'll see how it plays out, and I'm not gonna let this one discontinuity distract me from the full-on fun this title delivers every month.
