What Just Happened?
In the epic finale to the Aspen Universe: Decimation event, we find Orlana, The Death Princess engaging in the final battle for supremacy in every way she can. As the previous issues continuously felt like a build-up, readers are finally treated to multiple confrontations that ultimately decide the fate of the Aspen Universe itself. The twists throughout the narrative are enjoyable, albeit more lighthearted than I would have imagined given the circumstances. This was an aspect that I eventually felt worked in favor of the narrative itself, as multiple plot lines all converge and create unexpected reactions.

Where the issue truly stands out is in the artistic direction though. From character and background design to the incredibly vivid coloring, each page is truly beautiful. The use of magic in the duel between Sudana and Terra is a perfect example of the incredible visuals used throughout the story. Again, the artistic quality at Aspen Comics remains some of the best in the industry, and this event has been an exemplary showcase of their talent.

Writer Vince Hernandez has woven each character’s complex plotline into a larger narrative in previous issues, and now they are all finally able to converge. The story does an incredible job of providing a wide range of emotion from humor to sorrow alongside near non-stop action.

Though the build-up was a bit long, the payoff is an incredible battle that lasts for almost the full issue, creating a monumental reading experience that truly delivers on the promise that no soul is safe.

The climactic finale of the crossover event Aspen Universe: Decimation no longer feels like the calm before the storm, it is a fast-paced, action-packed, and overall gorgeous issue that is a must-read for any fan.


Rating: 8.5/10
