    But Why Tho?

    In the end, Almighty #5 manages to give readers a few final moments with its strongest character, which comes at the expense of everything else. If you have enjoyed the journey thus far, this entry serves as a fine cap to its tale, even though many of the elements are fairly rushed.

    The promotional copy for the fifth issue suggests that this is the end of the first volume of the series. Laroche provides some sense of conflict that could be carried into a second series, but he would have to find a way to conjure some depth out of all the awkward, exhausted, post-apocalyptic surface tension if he’s going to conjure much more than a restless insomniac vision of life after the fall of civilization. There needs to be more in and within the panels if Almighty is going to bring a bit more weight to the comics rack.

    Almighty draws to a conclusion in an oversized final issue that is every bit as scattered and ill-composed as the series preceding it. Fale is led into a final fight sequence against a character unmentioned until its start and whose connection to Fale is defined as they engage in a knife fight. It’s an anti-climactic affair undermined further by a need to state what is happening as many transitions are difficult to distinguish on the page; oftentimes the two combatants are difficult to distinguish from one another. This lack of prior definition becomes an even greater problem when plant-zombies arrive once again to reveal new powers and a transformation process that seems to be solely driven by the needs of the plot. It’s a strange series of events that barely cohere, all of which could have been addressed with a few rounds of edits or revisions. With such shoddily designed characters and settings combined with ineffective action sequences and a story that resembles a collection of notes more than a coherent narrative, Almighty is one series best left forgotten by the end of 2023.
