This story takes an interesting turn. The idea that Ben is the son of “space hitler” (as he puts it) and that the human race started as aliens, is extremely interesting. I really like the idea and can’t wait to see how it gets explored. Hearing Tara talk about the “lesser races” really hits home that it’s not all black and white. Are the humans really that good? Were they really an evil dictatorship?

And what does all this mean for Earth? We see that history as we know it might not be all that we thought it was. Did we start off as aliens?

I really like the plot. It’s just the script that I’m not liking. The script seems almost julvenile next to the plot. It’s not as good as it could be. The idea is extremely interesting and good, and this issue does a good job of defining that idea. So far it’s been hinted at, but this issue really explains to Ben just what he is a part of.

But I just wish that the actual dialogue itself was on the same level as the idea.

The art isn’t as good as it has been. It’s been going steadily downward. I think Randolph, who is doing some other books as well, is spreading himself too thin and it’s starting to show. This issue has a really sketchy quality. It’s almost looks unfinished. It also looks like Randolph might be trying for a different style. The characters are sharper and more stylized then before.

The plot is excellant but the script and art aren’t living up to it.
