The Rundown: Agamotto gathers his allies for a final fight against Mephisto.
Agamotto continues his mission to protect the primitive people of Earth using the mystic arts to heal. When he realizes that he is being watched, he forces Mephisto to appear. In the aftermath, Agamotto realizes that he is going to need help if he has any chance of defeating the demon.
Going to his fellow heroes, he tries to convince them to stand with him against Mephisto. After gathering his allies, he shows them that they will not be alone in their upcoming fight.
The Story: I liked the focus on Agamotto in this issue a lot. From a story perspective, the issue feels more like a prequel story than a continuation of the bigger plot, but it does work well with the bigger arc. The writing is great and I enjoyed the exploration of the relationships between the characters.
The Art: Fiorelli delivers some great art in the issue. The visuals are beautiful and craft a great world for the characters.
