When five friends go to the woods to bury a time capsule, they discover a bunker filled with letters from their future selves describing how they will contribute to the future apocalypse and how they may be able to stop it. Unclear as to the right choices and whether they can really change anything, the friends drift apart owing to inner conflicts and disagreements as to what steps to take to avoid the impending future. In this third volume of Fialkov’s (I, Vampire) series, one of the friends’ future selves continues to push an agenda with unclear motives, causing even more chaos and confusion. Are the letters from the future from themselves, and are they there to help them alter what’s to come? Included in this collection is a stand-alone issue drawn by Brahm Revel (Marvel Knights: X-Men).
Verdict This is a riveting series that draws you in from the first volume; a great choice for teens and adults who enjoy such TV series as Lost or Sense8. Readers will be on the edge of theirs seats waiting to see what twists and turns the group get involved in next.—Lucy Roehrig, Ann Arbor Dist. Lib., MI
