The final chapter of the Redemption storyline and it tries to cram too much into a single issue. That’s not to say there’s alot going on, but it comes across as there’s more then there really is. The story jumps ALOT from point to point and it’s jarring. Very jarring.

The story just seems random. There’s a plot and a point to it, but it just comes across as a random jumble of moments. Characters are in one location and then they are in another with other characters that were somewhere else. They all mix and match and come together and break apart randomly. It comes across as a mess.

Characters get attacked but are walking around soon after.

None of it really makes much sense. And the art doesn’t help at all. The art is bad, really bad. The characters are stiff and awkward. The vehicles are even worse, they don’t look real, if that makes any sense. The layouts and panels don’t flow.

It’s hard to tell if it’s the fault of the artist or the script, but the issue does not read well at all.

And the dinosaurs, which are supposed to be the selling point of the series, look horrible. The giant one, whatever species it is, is just bad, really bad. It’s a male, but it looks pregnant. Doctor Grant and Ellie Satler, who were middle aged 13 years ago, look as old as Lex and Tim do in this series.

A sad end to Jurassic Park’s return to comics.
