Rapture #5

by Taki Soma and Michael Avon Oeming

Okay, I think I'm ready for this comic to be over. I usually enjoy Oeming's work (except for Mice Templar), but this title has dragged on a little too long. The art in this is wonderful (especially the water-colour pages), but I've had enough of the characters, and their inconsistent behaviour.

This issue finally shows the reunion between Gil and Evelyn, but Gil gets all moralistic (because Evelyn attacks the psycho kid that ate his fingers last issue), storms off, and then becomes a cold-blooded killer himself. I find it hard to believe in these characters now, and am more than a little sick of them.

I do like the Klimtian cover though....
