In this issue we learn a little more about Skybourne and his history with Merlin as our hero prepares for the fight of his life. So the pieces are set and as Skybourne trains to regain his former prowess time is quickly running out. For the first time since the beginning of this series we are beginning to to grasp just how powerful this guy really is. With the Catholic Church and U S Government failing to contain Merlin, Skybourne is their only hope. Now Merlin has not come alone, this time he has surrounded himself with a brood of dragons, so If Skybourne is their only hope, this guy must be a total badass.
The series continues to enthral me and Frank Cho is really onto a winning concept with Skybourne. At first glance Skybourne may come off as a very dull character but he holds a hidden depth.
