Cry Havoc #6

Cry Havoc, Issue #6 is a title I somehow didn't get around to reading until this morning.  I patiently went to the comic book store every Wednesday for six months, buying the alternate cover, and reading it within a few days.  Don't get me wrong; Issue #6 is just as good as the first five issues.  I just had trouble getting started.  This issue contains the final battle between Good and Evil, the humans and the meta-humans, and the soldiers and the warlord.

At this point, all I have to do is recommend that trade paperback.  This is a graphically violent series, and there's a lot of nudity.  Most of all, I'd describe this series as "complex."  You can enjoy this series in trade paperback form by reading it once, but its best attribute is its re-readability.  There are a few things you won't catch the first time around, like an old Dovchenko film from the 1930s.  I love the reference to "our reptilian overlords," in the guise of the Shahmarans, although the intent of the usage of them isn't clear.
