Onward and conclusionward! All the political machinations to save the Sand Masters (and himself) are coming to a head. It’s a fine enough central plot, even if the random assassinations / friend that doesn’t get along well with his father / scientist from the other side of the world / bodyguard that hates you and you have to win over subplots really do get to be a bit random and disorientating.
That’s really a problem with the whole set of graphic novels though and–if I remember correctly–I had the same problem with the prose version years ago. It’s not a deal breaker, but I feel like the whole thing could be cleaned up.
