Weird issue, and weird ending. I'm not sure there's any likable characters in this series, unfortunately.

Things get even weirder in this issue of Trillium, as more and more characters start time-travelling, which leads to pretty shocking, explosive results.

With some of the future space-ships bursting out of the top of the Pyramid, lasers are flying everywhere, causing chaos. Some of the Atabithian Aliens help William and Nika get out of the way, but William’s brother Clayton is trapped in the future, where he is apprehended by Pohl. It turns out the Atabithians are able to speak with the strange tribes-people, and did anyone else get the sense that they were mating with each other? Nika says all of the Atabithians are female, and I didn’t see any women tribes-people, so my guess is, yup, they’re totally doing it. The tribes-people show Nika and William a strange, ancient carving, which seems to show how the Pyramids are linked throughout time. They struggle to understand it, and at the same time, Pohl is struggling to interrogate Clayton, as they can’t understand each other’s language. Pohl puts a gun to his head, and at that moment, the time-travel gets even freakier, as Clayton’s consciousness appears to switch places with Nika, so he can talk to his brother, and she can try and explain things to Pohl.

Unfortunately, even after finding a way to translate Clayton, Pohl isn’t any more reasonable, and once they’ve got enough of the Trillium flowers on board, she blows up the Future-Temple, which spells bad news… for everyone. Nika starts freaking out back in the past, and as William tries to comfort her, a strange white light engulfs them, and I dunno… destroys the Universe? Is that what happened? Man, there’s still half of this story to go, and Lemire just blew up existence.

This series is fucking mental, and I’m loving it, I have no idea what’s going to happen next, and that, combined with Lemire’s unique, innovative art (there’s nothing too experimental in this issue, but it’s still great), makes this a must-read. My only real problem with this title is that so much of it is in incomprehensible alien-language, but I guess that’s kind of the point, basically, this issue was mental, and it was great.

I'm beginning to really dislike Pohl. After this issue I'm willing to state that she's a complete idiot. You have mysterious energy you don't fully understand coming out of a building you don't fully understand that was built by a society you don't fully understand. What's your response? Blow the building up -- yeah, sure, that's a good idea. :roll:

I don't really care about them one way or the other. I'm not sure why I should.
