More insane genius from Matt Fraction and Gabriel Ba. This issue was just amazing, so much happened and I can’t even get my head around it. First you had Casanova’s new mission of killing a different version of Luther Desmond Diamond (the man who will become Newman Xeno) in every universe, and then an insane scene between Cass and Sasa Lisi. Then samurais and pandas and then some weird kind of meta-commentary scene where Luther Desmond Diamond is actually Matt Fraction himself, and then homosexual undertones and then Casanova deciding to not kill LDD after all, and an explanation behind the back-up story in Gula #4. I think my favourite scene was when Casanova assaulted LDD’s boat, Fraction didn’t use dialogue and instead made fun of the kinds of dialogue he would use, such as ‘(Cheap and easy juvenile bullshit)’ and ‘(Pandering)’. It’s just great to see a book that tries new things, not everything comes off and it is confusing, but at least Casanova is trying. The art from Ba was fantastic as usual, this book just wouldn’t work with a lesser artist. I need to read this about 10 more times before I fully understand it, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
