The Rundown: Danny gets a visit from a stranger who reveals to him his destiny.
After finding himself trapped in nothingness, Dan finds himself being rescued by Al who has been watching him for some time and has some of the same power he does. After rescuing him, Dan is taken on a trip where he is told the truth about who and what he is. He discovers what it means to be Epic and is reunited with some old friends.
After a show of his power, Dan is taken to a land where dreams and nightmares converge. A world where he will have to play a dangerous game in order to prove that he is the Epic that the world needs.
The Story: I continue to be impressed with the scope, scale and ambition of this series and this issue is brilliant at laying out the stakes for the character as well as expanding his world with more rich characters and engaging revelations. I love the buildup within this story and how unique it is in its execution. There are so many great characters, reveals and teases within this issue that I am excited to see where the story goes next.
The Art: As compelling and engaging as the story is, I continue to be impressed with the visual palette Kudranski employs in this issue. The brilliant mixture of visual styles continues to be one of the biggest influences on me to keep reading this series.
