    Great issue. And I love the pun at the end solicit for the next issue. Well played, Ostrander. I loved Cross's plan to enter the prison and how easy he made it all look. Alessi laying out the schematics like that was very Bond or Mission Impossible-esque.

    Yeah, definitely a fun issue. I thought the first two were good, but this month's offering was great. They fit a lot of action into twenty-two pages, but it was action that really developed both Cross's and Vex's characters rather than being just mindless blaster-shooting or lightsaber-swinging. Like Todd, I also loved the bit where Q laid out the schematics. Good stuff.

    If this were a Bond movie, I would fear for Vex's safety as she would be the Bond girl who dies first after sleeping with Bond...:p

    I quite enjoy the dynamic there and love the exploration of Serenno like the houses and the Spike prison. A great issue and now we get to see Cross being divided from his superiors. I wonder how he rationalises the next chain of events.

    I finally was able to delve into this series yesterday, and I'm now all caught up. In a word; wow. The James Bond...similarities were never more apparent than in this issue. Loving the book. Ostrander does it again. ^:)^

    What is that tiny little fighter that Vex uses in the previous issue and Cross uses in this one? I feel like I've seen it before but I can't quite place it, and I'm sure it's going to be obvious once someone points it out.

    Probably my favorite issue of the entire series.

    I loved the whole part with The Spike.
