And Then I Read: DOCTOR FATE 17

The penultimate issue of this series is the first of two parts written by Paul Levitz with art by Brendan McCarthy. While participating reluctantly in a protest march against racism, Khalid begins to see strange threads from all the people around him leading into the sky. As Fate, he follows them to a mystical cauldron and an insect-like being, Clothorus, who seems to have the life threads of all living beings in her control. Khalid manages to escape her, but finds himself in more strange places.

I’m sorry to see this series going away soon, I’ve enjoyed it. This issue has cool psychedelic visuals by McCarthy, and the story is okay, a mystical quest, though I’d hoped for more resolution for previous storylines and characters.

Mildly recommended.
