Air #23

Written by G. Willow Wilson
Art by MK Perker

With only one more issue remaining in this title, it's a little pointless to continue singing the praises of this book - clearly not enough people were listening to drive up sales, but it's worth doing anyway, as this has been a great comic.

As Air comes to its close, Wilson brings together all sorts of characters on board the weird Etesian airship where Blythe and her friends were taken captive last issue.  There is more action in this issue than we're used to seeing in this book, as Blythe fights Lancaster in that empty Hyperprax world, while Fletcher and Mrs. B, with the help of some friends, try to take out the other Etesians.

This issue is decidedly less conceptual than the last few, but I'm sure Wilson is working on an accelerated timetable to finish things off.  I imagine that next issue is going to have a few surprises, and explain quite a bit.  I'm looking forward to it, in a bittersweet way.
