The Rundown: With the cosmic sepsis eminent, the Crisis Command looks to an unexpected source for salvation.
The cosmic sepsis is growing and the Extinction Society is using it to its advantage in a coordinated attack around the world. Even the President isn’t safe as his closest advisors show their true colors. At the same time, the Crisis Command battles the evil clones of Executrix with a revived and battle ready Prizefighter at their side. In addition, heroes from around the world fight to save their countries from the attacks as the sepsis continues to grow.
Frontier faces off against Executrix for the fate of the last Earth. As the Commanders finally get the upper hand, they gear up for a last minute attempt to help their adopted world. A chance that will connect Sumaira with everyone and give the population the one thing their world’s never received, a choice.
The Story: Steve Orlando brings the reader to the edge of their seat with this story. There are a lot of things going on in this story and all of them are compelling and entertaining. Frontier’s confrontation with her dark self is great and I was impressed with the chance Orlando takes in how this issue concludes. It’s a little sentimental, but that works in the context of this story and its characters.
The Art: Davide Tinto delivers some great action on every page of this issue. The characters are visually dynamic and the action is thrilling given the stakes of the story itself.
