I’m pleased to see Adeptus Titanicus getting a run out for a bat rep.

I’ll be honest, I live bought all of the issues that have come out, but haven’t read more than a couple of articles in each one. Hopefully this one will swing me round.

I have read all of the issues that I have left a contents review for, but I would have to say that some of the issues were a struggle. This issue is quite a bit shorter than the last three issues being only 146 pages long compared to their 162, so I am hoping that will make it a quicker read.
