This is starting to get interesting. Or is it confusing? The Traveler escaped from Anachronopolis only to realize he has to break his way back in. This story allows Waid and Peyer to play around with time travel and the result is well done. This is probably one of the best time traveling stories I’ve read in a long time.

The writing team do a great job of showing that time is not linear with the Traveler bouncing around as he learns more about his powers. He jumps back and forth, sometimes before and sometimes after the previous moments. This allows him to save his friend. Or did he?

Like the Traveler asks, did he change time or was this what was always going to happen.

The opening sequance illustrates exactly what Waid and Peyer are doing with this story as we see the Traveler being led to a castle and be given instructions and then we see him re-enact that moment. It’s a well done sequance.

And even the little asides by Abraxis shows how non-linear time is, when he comments that he doesn’t remember the Traveler being this powerful this early in his career.

The art by Hardin is decent. His storytelling is strong in this issue. It’s obvious he’s having fun with Anachronopolis and the people of the planet. He gets to draw characters from every time period and it looks as if he did his research.
