The final fate of Lee Archer and crew is revealed! Or is it? The mysteries down below continue!
Halfway through the Scott Snyder and Sean Gordon Murphy sci-fi epic tale, the miniseries still continues it's brisk pace of delivering twists and turns with each turn of the page. It's been nothing but terror and turmoil for Lee Archer and crew so far. While issue 5 initially offers a glimmer of hope and salvation for the team, Snyder and Murphy turns things for the worst once again. The issue is littered with subtle yet foreshadowing flashback scenes throughout Archer's past, revealing that she might have been warned about this phenomenon years ago. Combining action and tension throughout the story, Snyder takes the apparent final moments of the current story and into something more wondrous in the issues ahead. Thus, we are left to ponder the fates of Archer and crew in the next chapter. The abrupt change is slightly unnerving for those expecting a simple cut and dry science-fiction story. Instead, Snyder prolongs it literally by advancing the story...decades.
Final Verdict: 8/10
