I literally have no idea what happened in this issue. Even though I re-read parts 1-3 of this story yesterday in preparation… I was very confused. Everything’s exploding, people are jumping in and out of realities, Newman Xeno fights Cass, Kaito has crazy eyes, some more stuff happens and Cass leaps to somewhere? I dunno? However, as always with Casanova, despite the plot making little-to-no-sense, it was still a hell of a good time, with some brilliant stylistic moments, such as the return of the (words in brackets replacing sound effects) idea, or even just the playing with sound effects, so ‘FUUUUUUUUUCCCCCKKK’ is spread over two panels, or using ‘ONOMATOPEAIA’ as one, which is weirdly genius. And of course, the artwork from Gabriel Ba was phenomenal. Whether or not this was style over substance is not the point, for me, Casanova has always been about how the style is the substance. I just hope that ‘Acedia’ comes along sooner rather than later, because this is one of the weirdest, and one of my favourite, books on the market, even when Fraction doesn’t bother to do the backmatter.

What was with that bit where Casanova talked about playing as the Cubs on a baseball video-game but stopping before he won the world series? I'm guessing that's an autobiographical detail from Fraction, he's always tweeting about the 'fucking Cubs'.
