But WAIT - a less than stellar rating for this tenth(!) book?! Is my rock crumbling - is this the end times???? To that I say nay - or maybe yay, but for reasons completely separate from comics - unless artist Julia Madrigal is gonna be coming back.

p.s. diatribe: Daisy Wooten? Daisy Wooton? Why does it seem the spelling of her name changes from volume to volume? What's CANON dammit? What's the deal, Shannon Waters? Stupid or careless or deliberately trying to drive me INSANE????????
