Spider's brain disease (kind of like Alzheimer's) continues to kill him, the effects this time around are becoming more noticeable as he struggles to write his exposes. Meanwhile he and his filthy assistants are hot on the trail of Callahan's potentially Presidential-term ending exploits in his campaign and hunt down the last living witness to his depravities.
It was cool to see Mitchell Royce, Spider's former editor at "The Word", get more of a look in in this, the penultimate book in the series, which gave him more depth as a character and gave Spider one more piece of the puzzle to bring down the Smiler.
That said, there's a lot of exposition to get through before the final book in the series. Necessary perhaps given the complicated sequence of events that's needed to relate before shutting down President Callahan for good, but still a bit of a trial to get through (I'm thinking of Fred Christ's scene in particular).
Still, definitely worth reading and of course essential if you've made it this far in the series. Not the best of the bunch but Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson not on 100% is still head and shoulders above the average comics writer/artist. Here's looking forward to an explosive finale in "One More Time". Shall we?
