A really fun interlude that also sheds some light onto the main storyline. Jay Stephens’ art was great, and because it was inked and coloured by the Allreds, it maintained the tone and look of the series perfectly. It was fun to get a look at a young Diogenes, but he did look kind of stupid with hair. I thought we were going to find out how he got his scar, but we didn’t, so that’s a tale for another day I suppose. Horatio’s mother was bad-ass, I wonder how she died? Roberson also drops lots of little hints about the bigger arcs, so we get more detail on what Xitalu is, and also about VEIL and the Dead Presidents. Plus, there were Were-Jaguars! Awesome.
