Next Men #40

After waiting so long for the return of the Next Men, it's sad to learn that this story is the final arc for that team.

And for that final story (titled "Aftermath"), it seems writer and artist John Byrne has decided to go for broke, throwing in all kinds of unusual elements in this story.

It includes Jazz running for her life from giant feathered dinosaurs, some soldiers from ancient Rome, a caveman, a spaceman (who isn't what he seems), an alien and the crew of a starship.

Just what they're all doing thrown together in this mixed-up, devastated landscape - and what happened to her other team members - we'll have to wait and see. But as it stands, this feels like a really good episode of Doctor Who (and from me, that's high praise indeed).

Much as I hate to see this comic end, I'm anxious to see the rest of this story!

Grade: A-
