The battle is finally here and it kicks ass! This was probably the best issue of this title so far, the action was propulsive, each character got a nice moment and the stakes were high as hell. Exoristo’s ‘suicide by rhino-monster’ scenes were great, and the page of Horse-Woman and all the other Horses facing down those dragons was brilliant, epic stuff. I do worry that the usual controversy-stirrers will start complaining about the book killing off innocent horsies though, they’ve been quiet for a while and they need a new, well, a new dead horse to beat. Maybe the bronies can get involved? Madame Xanadu continues to frustrate though, she’s always almost doing something, but never actually does. I did like that the origin of her name made no sense in a time-travelly way, she chose it because Merlin told her she would choose it in the future. What the? This issue featured another artist on a few pages, but it’s a credit to Robson Rocha that I didn’t really notice.
