This Is the End Beautiful Friends

This series finally comes to a close and everything tied together.

I have mixed feelings about this. Many of which I’m saving for my final verdict and avoid putting in any spoilers. I will say I’ve definitely reached the realm of stupid.

There was only one character I liked throughout this series and that was Caulfield. I actually felt glad she joined their crew, but she could have done better. I don’t like any of those guys.

I’m not impressed at all. Nothing outta left field. In the beginning, it almost looked like it, but no. I’m glad it’s over.

Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down

Moz is getting framed and it’s up to him and his group o figure out who and why.

Bleh. We went from some crazy drug experiments that got cleaned by some higher authority, to flashbacks I’m more inclined to believe are drug induced, to a framing. Yep. I’m still on the train heading to the land of stupid.

This whole ghost thing that’s popped up I don’t believe as supernatural at all. For Perv, I can believe it’s his weird psychic ability. Moz? Totally drugs and probably all that emotional baggage he’s got from his screwed up past.

I’m not expecting to like the ending, but it’d be nice to be surprised and have something from left field totally come and hit me in the face and turn this boredom into something cool.

The Forests of the Night.

Moz is walking down memory lane with the ghosties realizing how much of a screw up he is while the rest of the gang go looking for him.

This issue was mildly interesting. Now I know why Abi was so harsh in the beginning. It still isn’t interesting enough to hold my attention. Even the last panel doesn’t do it for me. I know it promises something I’d really like to see, but I’m certain won’t happen.

I’m not sure, though, if any of it is really relevant at all. The relationships and back histories of the characters really haven’t been to important, just filler. And this whole ghost thing so seems more like a drug trip.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell Part Two

Steven’s body is under the knife and some men in suits come to clean up. The group find the old man with some test subjects and a bomb. Finally, an urban wolf comes to talk to Moz about his mother.

I practically slept through this book. I tried to read all the words, but some bubbles just didn’t make it past my eyes, just little white blobs with strange black, printed glyphs that held no meaning whatsoever. I almost need another cup of coffee.

Three issues left. I think I’ll try and get through another one. I’d like to finish this before next week.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell part one

As Perv warned, the killings haven’t stopped. They find another crispy body and start putting the pieces together pointing to our three crazy occultists.

Stephen is so messed up. That thing with the microscope, what the heck was that? Guess we won’t know since he doesn’t last long. Maybe it was the meds. That boy had issues. I’m sorry to see him go. I would have liked to have seen more displays of his issues. He was the only point-of-interest I had. There’s still been no improvement. Not surprising.

Another issue down and only four more left of this ho-hum series. Then I’ll be free.
