MICHAEL CRAY #10 by Bryan Hill - Comic Book Review
From the publisher: With Diana Prince’s plan for Armageddon revealed, Michael Cray and Constantine forge an uneasy alliance to stop her, while Christine Trelane hunts them all. Michael has the power inside him to overcome, but will the price of that power make him a slave to the consciousness living inside of him?
Okay, first of all, the synopsis that DC provided for Michael Cray #10 by Bryan Hill doesn't really coincide with the story in the book. In my opinion, just ignore it. Here's what you need to know: Constantine and Dion Fortune are putting their plan for Cray into high gear. Trelane is trying to convince Cray to come in from the cold. Diana Prince is trying to bring about apocalypse. And Cray just wants answers and revenge, not necessarily in that order.
With only a few issues left, Hill is starting to bring the story to a conclusion. Some of the major players are revealing their hands, and Cray looks to be ready to finally take action both with his mortal opponents, and with the thing living in his brain. And that is what the readers have been waiting for. There has been some characterization, but Hill has told this story while being heavy on the action. Still, Cray has proven to be an interesting lead character, but their are many questions surrounding him, chief of which is how did the alien/parasite/demon/who-knows-what get in his brain, and why? More than the motivation of the bad guys, Cray's background is what kept me reading this series. Well, it looks like answers are on their way (fingers crossed).
It's really too late to start reading with this issue, but if you've been keeping up with the story, you must read Michael Cray #10. Bryan Hill continues to push his plot forward and the events keep picking up momentum. At this point, I'd be happy if the book came out weekly. I can hardly wait to read what happens next.
I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.
