Here we are again with another volume that doesn’t advance the story enough to be relevant. It really says something where you could take out five issues from a series, or condense it down to one full story driven issue, and it still get it’s points across. Now that doesn’t mean this wasn’t an entertaining set of comics, but it’s making me walk away from the series a bit before I burn myself out. I’m more than halfway done with the series, but at this rate I don’t see me finishing them. So I’ll walk away, read a few novels, then return because I am overall wanting to find out where Yorick’s tale ends.
This all takes place on a boat, with Yorick and his crew on their way to Australia to find Beth, who SPOILERS, he has cheated on and is kissing any women who throws him flirty eyes. Setting that aside, some minor stuff happens involving submarines, more women pissed, and 355 and Dr. Mann hook up briefly. Death happens to minor characters, which has been a complaint of mine that anybody they meet up with will ultimately die shortly after.
But I am anxious to see how they handle Beth and Yorick meeting up, or if it ever happens. You are eluded to Beth a few times, who has been almost non existent until now. There is still some great writing and character development in this volume, but I just want the story to move along. I’m ready for some answers, and ready to see where Vaughan is taking this amazing story he created.
