The final comic in Arthur Adams' Dianii story arc, which also concludes events set into motion way back in the first issue and works as a great conclusion to what would turn out to be the best run of the Godzilla King of Monsters series from Dark Horse following the first two arcs.

While the story is interesting in this issue, as we learn more about the Black Hole Aliens and see the final battle with Godzilla, the All-Terraintula and the Dianii, the end feels rushed as the Dianii Ship is brought down rather quickly. Although, in defense of the story, there is not much else they could have done with it that might not have felt dragged out.

The artwork, unfortunately, is downgraded from the previous issues in the series and the lead characters, once again, change drastically in appearance. Kazushi is the most noticeable, as he looks remarkably similar to Kurt Russell. Another noticeable flaw is the apparent change in art direction every few pages. This same approach, having several artists work on the comic and dividing the work load into sections, was used on the previous comic to great affect, but doesn't work at all here as the art as a whole is subpar and very inconsistent. The dialogue, for the most part, is pretty good; the line about the saucers could have been better, but is really the only blemish. The cover is once again very impressive, although it is hard to make out what is going on at first. Arthur Adams is at the top of his game here, in what would be, sadly, his final cover for the series.

Overall, not a highlight of the story arc, but the Black Hole Alien plot brings some nice familiarity for movie fans and make the issue as a whole a worthwhile read.
