Enough with the prelude: Tom finally jumps into action against the still-shadowy bad guys. He uses the powers he's been slowly learning and his one-man army goes against pretty much everyone who stands in his way. These issues (collecting main issues 31-35, plus others mentioned later) are perhaps the most "comic book"-like of the series with the big showdowns in most of the issues. If the prior installments were a little too "think-y," well, here's the payoff.

Also included in this trade paperback are the "half-issues" -- not half in terms of page numbers, but full-size issues distributed halfway between the normal monthly issues. Each of these five issues deal with one of the Cabal, and give some background to their involvement. Of course, since the entire run is about whether stories can be believed, we are left wondering how much is the truth. It's an interesting interlude between the "real" issues.

The sixth book of the series offers plenty of answers and a great deal of action, thus paying off all the time readers have spent so far. There is back story about the cabal, the reveal of the origins of Pullman, and in the present time there is a fantastic confrontation between various key characters. ( )

A whole sheer volume of plot; intricacies, sudden twists and imminent disasters, dramatic fights and double crossings, new discoveries, endings and new beginnings.

It wasn't my favourite of the series and it really depends what happens next. Its a volume that's needs the others to really make sense, probably cos its not a direction I am sure about. More of a pathway than a climatic tale. Still I will be there avidly waiting for the next one, its such a good series. ( )

This series just keep improving. The artwork is gorgeous (especially the cover work), the narrative is getting more and more interesting with a perfect mix of humour, inspired interrogation of the nature and importance of stories to constructing humanity, and especially the tropes of fantasy. Consistently enjoyable. ( )
