Glory #33

Written by Joe Keatinge
Art by Ross Campbell

Glory has been a pretty wild ride since Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell resurrected the long-dead Rob Liefeld character, but this issue is easily the most intense and wild of their run.

Glory has assembled a large group of heroes to help her fight the Knight of Thule, a gigantic creature who wrecked her father's homeland.  Almost all of the characters in the Liefeld stable are here (so there are terrible character designs all over the place), with prominent roles given to Supreme, and the regular supporting cast of this series.

The battle is joined early into the comic, and after that, there is not much more than some very impressive battle scenes.  Keatinge has been showing us that Glory is not someone to be messed with, as Supreme learns when he tries to suggest a different plan of action.

Riley, the tiny little point of view character who has been central to this book has to face her destiny in this comic, as Keatinge gets ready for next month's final issue.  It's a very exciting comic, and Campbell does a terrific job of balancing the wide-screen action with some of the issue's quieter moments.

I'm going to miss this series when it's done.
