In this issue, Fialkov gives the first sustained look at life in the post-apocalyptic world the main cast creates. There’s not a lot, mostly because Fialkov wants to keep a big reveal (but it’s not really important so far) for the last scene. So there are bits and pieces and Infurnari does something really cool with how he transitions through time. He goes from lots of detail to a sketch, then into the new time period. It’s neat.
Sadly, the future stuff is the only interesting thing. Once Fialkov got the ball rolling on the series, the characters and their petty post-college interactions get boring. It’s not funny anymore, especially with Fialkov structuring each issue as a letter to a character from his or her future self.
It’s not a bad issue, but Fialkov isn’t trying to sell the concept anymore. It’s way too soon to stop selling.
