A lot of fighting, where I struggled to understand what was going on. Very stylish artwork, minimalistic plot. Familiar looking images, that I can‘t quite name. I really like the larger panels. Great views, almost 3D. The little plot we get is good.
I was pretty confused for long stretches of this volume. I am oscillating between 3 and 4 stars. Benefit of the doubt?
Here is my chapter-by-chapter-not-a-review…
::LOG.31:: Sanakan and Cibo ::003::
No idea. Fighting.
::LOG.32:: Vibrations ::029::
Yep, more fighting.
::LOG.33:: Collapse ::057::
Um… ok? Very stylish, no substance. Can be nice, but I wouldn‘t mind a little more here or there.
::LOG.34:: Meltdown ::087::
Plot! Survivors having a conversation, yay! This chapter I liked. The disintegrating core reminded me of something, but I can‘t recall what…
::LOG.35:: Annihilated ::119::
Kyrii is not really vital to this volume so far. Cibo is the more central character. I like her, with her augmentations she is more interesting that monosyllabic Kyrii.
::LOG.36:: Beautiful Life ::149::
Just wrote that and a few pages later Kyrii uttered two full sentences! 😝
I like the panels the most where we get vistas of large open spaces with massive structures or long walkways and ladders. Despite the otherwise very two-dimensional sketches, those large panels always have a lot of depth and grip to them.
::LOG.37:: Unofficial Megastructure ::177::
Ok, that was odd. Let‘s call it the travel chapter…
::LOG.38:: The Warehouse ::199::
2 million hours later? That‘s a new one! I was wondering who the heck that was.
Excellent artwork and good story in this one. This was really good. Mysterious new characters.
::LOG.39:: Type 1 Unknown Criticality Weapon ::239::
Started well, but then dissolved into another confusing fight scene.
::LOG.40:: Captured ::269::
::LOG.41:: Anti-Infiltration Electronic Space ::301::
Hm. Fish!? Cibo in action… weird blond guy is interesting. Plot, thank you!
::LOG.42:: Internal Fissures In The Megastructure ::335::
Kyrii is in somewhat yucky circumstances at the beginning of this one.
Otherwise that was a very short chapter with a very interesting ending.
Onwards to volume 5!
