    Party being split is killing me, but nice to get a little more focus on certain folks at certain times. Wild consequences here. So happy with this series.

This one feels like it's about the lies we tell ourselves and others and the roles we choose to play -- Isabelle, as the Godbinder and the self-appointed savior, and Chuck, to whom nothing means anything (view spoiler)[(and it's implied that it can't, because a happy-go-lucky foolhardiness and shallowness are required for his power as the Fool, and what a nightmare it is, to be forever stuck in your conception of what was cool when you were fifteen (hide spoiler)] ). There were bits where the writing felt a bit too clunky here (an unnecessary and rather trite dig at Twitter that sounded like it came, well, right off a sophisticated hipster version of Twitter), and there are some questionable character decisions. Izzy, I expected better of you than to (view spoiler)[mess around with MISTRESS WOE because you lost your temper (hide spoiler)] . This issue takes the fourth wall bending up to eleven, with characters making references to their own backstories (though I do wonder, that seems a little inconsistent with earlier issues), and the issue is very much about whether the world of Die is Real and whether the people are Real. But it didn't really work for me. Also, while I trust Gillen, I do side-eye the elf queen, because that felt a little gratuitous fanservicey (and Edgy, in a have-your-cake-and-critique-misogyny way). (view spoiler)[I think the line where she says "didn't you wonder if the elf queen had a name?" is supposed to suggest that she has some reality and agency, but...really, that line fell flat to me because (a) really, why did we have that sex scene apart from the fact that it fit the character arc? She didn't even seem to know, either! and (b) ...not giving your name to your lover is, um, kind of at least partly on you. (hide spoiler)] I think I will remember this one very fondly in a while (so much backstory and shipping potential!), though, but as the only issue for the month, it was honestly kind of a disappointment. On the other hand, the art is gorgeous (except for one frame, where it was like, Isabelle, what is up with your face???). I love Mistress Woe's character design and all of those dreamy, occasionally terrifying watercolors.

    Aunque tenía muchas ganas de ver qué estaba pasando con Isabelle y Chuck, super triste porque es la primera vez que leo un número de DIE y no me obsesiono inmediatamente con releerlo. Ah, y otro personaje nuevo que da pie a un montón de preguntas, estoy preparadísima para más.

    I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit lost here. Still an enjoyable ride.
