The beginning of the issue is labyrinth intrigue. The minotaur is hunting assorted cast of victims. Ketner’s art is awesome, his pacing is fine, it’s the writing failing to click; art’s awesome. But Paseto and Cantamessa really can’t make the writing compelling. The characters are too thin and unlikable. Oddly, when there’s more exposition in the second half, the writing is fine. The ending’s obvious, but once they’re questing and not actioning? Kill the Minotaur compells. Ketner’s art, the setting. It works.
