    Time Before Time is really starting to cook. After a couple of slower-paced issues in a row, there are now multiple storylines in Time Before Time that are all greatly compelling in their own way. What I’m most fascinated to see in the future is how these arcs will end up converging, which I imagine will happen eventually. Even if this doesn’t happen for a bit, though, I still look forward to every new issue of Time Before Time more than any other series I’m reading at the moment.

    Written by Rory McConville and Declan Shalvey (who also draws the main cover), this issue does a good job of moving the action along as well as answering some lingering questions in addition to raising a few new ones. In a series known for confusing readers by skipping across timelines, this story arc has remained largely straightforward.

    Artist Jorge Coelho, with colors by Chris O’Halloran, mixes styles to portray a gritty future along with a cleaner idealistic ancient past. And his action scenes – there are plenty in this issue – are exciting and easy to follow.

    While Tatsuo’s return from death may be a surprise to no one, it should provide the rest of this story arc with some needed momentum.
