The Rundown: Rose Forrest continues her journey through the history of the DC universe and this time, her journey will take her to the stars.
Rose and her alter ego Thorn still do not see eye to eye and their differences continue to drive them to more desperate attempts to feel something as they careen through the future from one situation to another.
From an awkward conversation that sends Booster Gold on his journey to a lecture to Omac about changing how he acts as a hero, Rose and Thorn find their separate journeys leading them back to the same destination; The Legion of Superheroes.
The Story: There are some really well done moments in this issue. I have enjoyed the journey of Rose and Thorn and how they have interacted with the varying futures they experience in this series. Unfortunately, I wish the ending was as interesting as the build up has been. For a limited series, the ending just didn’t come together into anything interesting or even necessary. The character took this strange journey for what? I know this is leading to a new Legion series, but this ending fell flat and was less than compelling.
The Art: All of the artists give their best in this issue. There are some beautiful sequences mixed in with some amazingly detailed ones. All the transitions worked in keeping the style matched with the theme of that part of the story.
