After reading Past Aways #6, I felt for the first time in a long time that I wanted to sit down and come up with fan theories and then discuss those theories. I want to discuss what Kindt is up to. Either everything is as it seems, or nothing is as it seems, and what could those repercussions be. Either way, the fan has just become tarnished. Kindt handles this dark and fairly twisted situation with intelligence and levity.
His characters are motivated not just by the situation, lost in the distant past with no way to return home (though it didn’t look like their present looked all that appealing), protected by the time stream and unable to die (making them pretty cool superhero-ish characters), but they are motivated by the actions of the other crew members. An assorted bunch of balloon Ids ready to pop, whose instincts and natural tendencies are their worst enemies. With the developments in this issue, things are only going to get more and more complicated and intriguing.
Scott Kolins' deft artwork and the overall design of the book and interactive nature of the design continue to be stellar.
