I enjoied how this played out. I think the mass hallucination thing would have been a nice touch. Just knowing that crystal ball collecting other doors, is kind of cool.

Yeah, I was thinking you could still go with hallucination since everyone turned back to normal. And those that were possessed had no memory of it. So I'm sticking with my "fungal agent associated with the statues caused the hallucinations" idea. That way I can still make this apart of the mainstream continuity without accepting the elder gods angle.

Anyway, decent read. I'm hoping we see Interrogator and his band of crazies again.

I picked both of these up last Wed as we went Comic Shop Hopping looking for supplies (our regular shop carries the WORST bags!)...

I really liked this for what it was. I love seeing the Joes in something we would not "normally" see (as an "Elseworlds" type story) and I thought this was a great blend of classic Joe and Cobra storytelling with some Hellboy type strangeness thrown in. I love the fact that both "Infestation" tie-ins have introduced some "name" characters; who would have thought Dee Jay was gonna make an appearance??!!??

And leave it to a book about mystical gods of destruction to make Crystal F***ing BALL COOL!!! He was amazing in this story!

I liked the art a lot, too, and could easily see this in the regular COBRA book the next time Fuso needs a break. Agree?
