EnsViews Comic Review
Reviewed 10/31/97

In this issue, a lot of the seperate story threads all come together into one situation. Perhaps because of this, the story flow worked better than issue #5. Even with the many things going on, what's happening is still clear to the reader.

I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but I'd say the quality of the pencils in this issue isn't quite up to previous issues. There are fewer details (noted especially in the ships) and faces don't quite seem as "live". (As with #5, my criticisms are in comparing this issue with those previous... not because I don't consider them good.)

Mara is in 7 panels and her face is hidden in all but one. I hope my previous reviews didn't scare Terry off of her completely.

I don't know what the deadline issues are like for this series (tighter than HTTE, I imagine), but it's too bad that the initial quality couldn't be kept up for whatever reason.

An average individual comic, but part of an above average series. I'm looking forward to 'Last Command'... 7.5/10. Recommended.
