My thoughts:
Interesting issue! I loved the last-page reveal - I think it's a brilliant take on the mythology in this story. It was, for me, really a "whoa, wow" moment. In addition, the explanation about why exactly Rankor needed prisoners (quite apart from the fact that he's this story's villain!) was an interesting one when added to what the final page revealed.

However, I think that Kiran seems a bit too eager to say that ultimately, 'fate' will take its course, no matter what. Especially since this comes right after Gar tells her (and I'm paraphrasing here) that he admires her emotional strength during the time her parents are missing.

Also, I'm not sure about the point of part of Bart's scenes. He sets something in motion that he hopes will help the others, but if they're not going to acknowledge that at all, what's the point of even having him do it?

The issue's artwork is, as usual on this title, nicely done by Nicola Scott. Some readers might like that there's a bit of a 'fanservice-y' moment too, concerning Kon. :P
