Last issue saw the shit splatter all over the fan. The crew trying to stop asteroid Xibala from smashing into Earth have seen their spaceship destroyed, their colleagues killed and possessed and things look bleak to say the least.
This is probably the best issue so far of Grant Morrison’s venture into horror and on the whole it’s an effective little issue that plays with dream, reality and some old dark horrors. Yes it feels like Morrison’s ‘inspired’ by Garth Ennis and in particular, his work on Crossed. As much as this feels like Morrison going over old ground and nicking bits and bobs from other writers, it is a good read and it is a nice horror comic but it’s still not Morrison on peak form.
