When last we left them, Legacy was looming over The Others and their leader, Aquaman, who is gravely ill from taking a trident in the gut:
Back at the castle, Legacy decides to put an end to Aquaman once and for all, by choking him to death while the Atlantean "toys" are transformed. Aaron tries to step in, but it stopped by Sayeh, because she knew what was coming:
The team then returns to the Ghost Lands, where Kahina and Vostok's clone are there waiting for them. Their work now done, they are free to move on to their final destination:
After a whole issue of lying around like a bump on a log, I was of course happy to see Aquaman back in the action, and deliver the final blow (a couple, actually). Art-wise, that big two-page spread of Vostok showing up reminded me of the great splashes Reis/Prado/Reis used to do during their run on Aquaman, and that's always a good thing. And I love the last panel, with the whole team standing there, like the Super Friends used to do. Fun stuff.
The one thing I didn't like is, after a five-issue story, I was hoping we'd get to see smaller, shorter Others stories, but instead we (and the team) and being thrown into yet another multi-issue crossover. This team is just getting started, I don't think a "Will the Others survive?" storyline is right for this moment in the book's history. But we'll see I guess.
I just realized the cover gives away the end of the book. D'oh!
