As Able, Laika and Miss Baker make their way home, monkey Able ponders whether or not they should even be returning, considering how they were treated back on Earth. What reception will they get when they get there? And just how long has their journey taken?

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino deliver an absolute gut punch of a read with this penultimate issue of Primordial; it’s emotionally involving and heartbreaking, with Sorrentino delivering an important piece of exposition – following the events of issue four – in the backdrop of one of his incredible double page spreads. The storytelling in both the minimal dialogue and art has been second to none throughout Primordial’s run – it’s a real shame that this series has seemed to fly under the radar of many comic fans.

I can’t recommend this series enough, though I’m left in no doubt at this stage that the final issue is going to be quite the emotional rollercoaster.
