This book continues to amaze. Keeping you locked in from beginning to end, and oh what an ending it was. I’m expecting a bloodbath next issue.

10/10 :thumb:

Freakin’ amazing issue! The whole Einstein scene... that explosion!!

I think Harada has actually managed to outmaneuver The Angela Vessel here. The subtext of the Einstein conversations tells me that Toyo was looking for a means to trigger a massive energy surge on purpose.

Also - the very fact that I can have some pathos for a creature like LV-99 after the events of this issue is entirely attributable to the strength of the massively talent-laden writing.

So, what do you think the half-time locker room talk is about? Will Team Harada come out on top in the second half?
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.
