Over the course of its run, More than Meets The Eye has offered us plenty of mysteries and tantalizing hints, some of which were answered early on and others that have remained, to tease and tickle our imaginations. As some mysteries got their explanation, new ones were planted for future story lines. In this issue we are offered the resolution to one of the mysteries that has been around since the very beginning of this comic’s run:
Hold on tight, guys: We’ve reached the penultimate issue of More Than Meets The Eye‘s “Season 1” ender Remain In Light, and the plot’s not gonna slow down for laggards! Unlike Getaway and his playful “bomp”s, this issue pulls no punches, and the end left me slack-jawed, shell-shocked, and envying people who wait for the trades and don’t have to go a full month between issues.
The bulk of the issue focuses on revealing one of the mysteries that’s been in the background of the story for most of the series’ run: What was Skids doing before he showed up, what happened to his memories, what’s the deal with that gun he keeps forgetting he’s holding, and why is he being chased by giant robots accusing him of “thought crimes”?
