I’m really enjoying this little detour from the main narrative, it’s got wonderfully atmospheric artwork from Matt Kindt, compelling characters and the ways in which the stories of Thacker and Louis connect to Gus’ are fascinating. This issue just raises so many questions about the back-story of this book, are the events of the present really down to Gods and a mystical explanation? Or is it science? Lemire has been exploring the science/religion conflict with the character of Singh, who is a scientist slowly beginning to believe, and this is paralleled with Louis in the past. I’m not sure how I’d feel if Gus is actually an Inuit God, it’d be crazy, but would it make sense?

At first I was annoyed with the main story stopping for this but after 2 issues I am enjoying it. I am really curious to see how this ties into the present.
