Is there even a fight this issue? Wait, yes. Davos gets beat up for being a tool last issue.
The art chores are apparently getting to be too much for Aja, as Javier Pulido fills in on some of the pages. Pulido covers the stuff with Luke, Misty and Colleen, but also some of the K’un-L’un stuff… so it’s not like there’s any rhyme or reason to it. In fact, at the beginning I just thought it was Aja trying a new style. Pulido’s great… so great one might wish he was doing the whole book.
Kano does the flashbacks, which feature Danny’s father fleeing K’un-L’un.
Brubaker and Fraction give the background on the revolution here. The Thunderer is going up against the ruler, Yu-Ti, who is revealed to be a tyrant. Shame they couldn’t foreshadowed it.
It’s good–there’s some great dialogue–but it’s real jumbled.
