Perhaps this has been explained better in another issue, or perhaps Dan Abnett is holding that for a reveal However, the goal is so vague and generic that it doesn't work too well as a prize for Silencer. Also, Honor and Blake's child is a tad annoying His dialogue is very much in the realm of[...]

We also learn some of Mera's priorities in the same regard. This looks like it will be the final prelude issue before the big blowout war in Atlantis between the rebels and Corum Rath's forces, which is exciting and welcome. I say that, but I am genuinely impressed with how well Dan Abnett has paced this story[...]
Dan Abnett and I.N.J Culbard's sci-fi trilogy starring cute, anthropomorphic animals will conclude in June with Wild's End: Journey's End OGN from BOOM!
