"Judgement of Diana"

The odd antics of this book never seem to grow old to me. David Haller is a character that is easy to like and want to connect with because he is full of so many mistakes and problems. He is just like any other human that can't seem to figure out what exactly is wrong with them other than the fact that he is incredibly powerful.

This issue opens with he and Ruth on the moon having a date. David is discussing Aarkus and the terrible plans that he has with the Earth due to some unhealthy reading he had been doing and, well, his insanity. David shows Ruth images of the future but doesn't make it clear that they are just images which causes her to become quite upset. David is having the argument that many people have of if you could stop something from happening in a vicious way before it happens is that an okay thing to do. Ruth does not like his methods.

The book closes with Ruth and David not on the same page and with David being alone again. It seems that he is bound to be stranded and alone, trying to figure out exactly what he is there for and how to be the most beneficial person to the world that he can. I truly felt bad for him as he sat alone on the moon reading Luca Aldine's journal. I hope he and Ruth work things out.

So, way to go Simon Spurrier for making me care about people who aren't even real. That is a feat within itself. Bravo sir and please keep this book coming, it is so different and special that it would be criminal for it to go away.
