  • With Mikey a prisoner, his family is is on his trail.
  • But the barrier between Terrenos and Earth is the thinnest it has ever been, and Lore’s influence has begun to seep through.
  • And after last issue’s tumult, some characters’ allegiances come into question.
  • Williamson continues to craft an urgent, engaging story, and this arc movies it into what might be its darkest territory yet.
  • Bressan and Lucas’s art always wows me; Lucas’s coloring really shines in this arc.

You should definitely check out Birthright if you haven’t already.
