Anna Mercury #5

Written by Warren Ellis

I guess it's Warren Ellis Week, as he drops four new books from Avatar all on the same day (I don't read Gravel though).

This is the conclusion to the Anna Mercury series, and it does a good job of taking its complicated high concept, involving tiny parallel worlds, one of which was affected by the appearance of a WWII battleship on a major street, and turning it into a big-budget Hollywood action movie.

It's not Ellis's best work, but it's entertaining to read, and nice to look at. I don't know if there are more Anna Mercury series planned, but it would seem that the door has most definitely been left open.
