All The Suns Are Daughters

George is still telling his story of creation. Honestly, I don't think he ever stopped talking. Cerebus is standing by, watching the light disappear over the horizon. I'm not sure if the aardvark ever really listened to George, most of the time he seems to watch things and try to make sense out of where he is and what he's seeing. The artwork, panels of Cerebus, intercut with panels of the light disappearing is superb and detailed.

George is now using the meeting of Tarim and Terim as a metaphor for the Big Bang. Tarim was intensely angered that Terim left and could not work out why. He had 2 denial phases, during which he absolved himself of all blame. Then he tried to destroy the light by crushing the stars, but eventually stopped and fell into a depression. He finally accepted that Terim had gone and was not coming back. Only eventually she will, and according to George that time is now, as he says 'she is coming back.'

Part of the void plans their reunion and part of the void plots his revenge. Who is on which side and will either emerge victorious?

A nice chapter, well drawn, great use of light and shade. Not a lot really happened, but it does set things up nicely for the final chapter in Church & State II.
