    The story by Rory McConville and Declan Shalvey is pretty standard and serves mainly to put Wells and Kevin on a trajectory to rescue Tatsuo – even though they still think he’s dead in the far-off future. The resolution to this issue is a bit hackneyed, but it serves its purpose.

    Before launching that final arc, the series will deliver a fill-in issue, which often plays a bigger-than-expected role in the upcoming storyline. Then Geoffo will take over for Coelho. Hopefully his work will capture the imagination like Coelho’s did.

    Time Before Time’s latest arc has built in an incredibly satisfying manner over the past few issues, but this storyline comes to a somewhat-abrupt halt here in its 23rd installment. That’s not to say that what happens in this new issue is bad or disappointing, it just happens to wrap up in a way I didn’t expect. Still, even when I have small complaints about Time Before Time, that doesn’t prevent me from being continuously engaged with this series and excited about its future.

    Even with time travel and sentient robots, Shalvey’s noir sensibilities cannot be suppressed. If you’re a fan of his work with Warren Ellis on Moon Knight or Injection, pick this book up. Time Before Time #23 is a satisfying wrap to this chapter of the story.
