Well, Iím glad that A) he didnít want to do it, and B) he only did it because he felt he had no choice. Still...eugh. Part of me is hoping that it was actually necessary, and Baal had to deal with that.
I wonder what else happens in cycles where they just embrace...
Well, I'm gonna say I wasn't expecting the Morrigan to die in that fashion. And is Cameron sans his godhood now?
Gods, they just keep dropping like flies
She went a touch anti-climactically, I thought. Still, at least Baph's not dead.
Small mercies, right?

At this point this little habit of wasting pages is feeling a little overwhelming, specially after the ninety years in the dark, although I liked the overall context with both Minervas.
The Morrigan's death, although expected, felt rather weak for me. Her final act was supposed to mean Redemption Equals Death but it was too rushed to be felt, and the death shock was already Baph's.
Also, Lucifer, Inanna and Tara are standing in the for audience and their little treatment is surely a And I Must Scream case.

Count the number of pages in this last issue. Guess what: You still got the same number of drawn pages as any other issue. They didn't waste a single page. Those black pages were extra pages included for free.
Yeah, I know. In the last Writer's Notes, Kieron mentioned these pages were free. With "wasted" I mean the very fact that these are extras. They add literally nothing to the story itself. I got that it was meant to give us the exact feeling Minerva felt, but since it was already used as a plot device, it felt little more than nuisance.
Well, it was just one of those artistic flourishes, really.
Also, I was rereading some of the earlier chapters and I noticed how Baal describing what god he is to Cassandra and Laura comes off like a sort of Suspiciously Specific Denial, which now seems like a great bit of foreshadowing.
And I think the answer to who the real Ananke is both of them. Maiden and Crone. So this Anna White is the third Ananke?
How a month flies
Wicked + Divine 1373: If serial murder every 90 years isn't bad enough, now Ananke is responsible for the bubonic plague. Also Lucifer 1373 is a real bummer.
Wow, Beth, when we think you can't become any worse.....
Poor Laura. I can't wait to see where she goes from here, and what her new thing is.

New comic spoilers time
It comes as no surprise but Ananke up to no good. None good. She's been feeding Baal a load of bull to trick him into killing people so she can create a zombie apocalypse for reasons.
Iím curious what her endgame here is. Whatís in this for her? Do we know?
Also, Lauraís great.
I think I need to go reread the Ananke origins issue because I have no clue. And maybe the medieval Lucifer issue.
Another new issue time once again.
Things take a break from being bad forever to being kind of good actually.
People get some stylish new duds. I approve.
Rest in Pieces, Wodan you shithead.
and the various different era specials become a sort of required reading after all when not-Frankenstein turns out to be the battery for the Great Darkness. All just another one of Anankeís ruses to manipulate the pantheon. The specifics of the Ananke/Minerva thing are explained and then anyone who needed that explanation is secondhand mocked. And Wodan being a shithead has screwed over Laura one last time.
Things really feel like theyíre reaching endgame

Surprised that Woden went down this early - heís not gonna be there for the finale. I suppose itís a fitting anticlimax for him, though a small part of me is gonna kind of miss the asshole. Not THAT much, though.
Pour one out for Baph, though.
