Since this review was posted, Warren Ellis was outed as an abuser. As comic books are a collective effort, this review will remain live, but I cannot in good faith recommend purchasing this book or other works by this person.

I’m so sad this book’s going on hiatus. There’s few books that bring me such continuous joy as Injection.

Oh, Vivek, he did figure out what was going on. And I do wish Ellis had explored Vivek’s own reliance on logic and lack of emotion and how it may have caused him some troubles in solving a case where the guy wasn’t upset about his girlfriend and his son dying.

It does make Injection slightly more scary to know that it can delete parts of people’s personalities. Especially such base ones as caring about your family.

Seems like they should’ve known more about Rubedo. I assume there are fringe criminal groups out there who are also into occult stuff. Probably Maria knows all about them. I’ve missed her these couple of issues.

So is Robin like 10,000 years old?

This cover is probably my favorite of the entire series. Yes to way more Brigid. Brigid forever. Especially if she and Maria continue to hook up.

I love how Brigid lives in rural England, but she doesn’t want them to know it. That she uses some kind of Doctor Who inspired teleporter. That Maria knows she’s doing this, and they are worried Vivek and Sim will find out. Or that Robin will just take her out.

Yes, Robin will not be very happy when he finds out that Brigid is using all kinds of magic with her technology. I adore how they all mistrust Robin now that he’s with the government.

Brigid for the next Doctor Who companion. Or just the Doctor.

Sheela is great. Shalvey outdid himself here. This is something that fits with the coarse edges of Vivek we see. Sheela’s vulva of everything.

I love how Brigid doesn’t trust anyone. How she instead runs her computer program to find an archaeologist who’s more knowledgeable and making sure whomever is driving her will be somewhat loyal. Emma Beaufort is a great addition to the story.

Brigid’s explanation about how she sees magic as code was brilliant. We know that she needs to run some magic along with her technology. It also nicely makes Robin upset.

Oh, Emma, she just gets a little taste at how scary Brigid and the rest of them can be.

Professor Derwa Kernick is definitely a little more than a human academic. Ellis always assumes his readers will understand his references, and while this was obvious, I’m glad he didn’t spell it out, like so many other comic books might’ve.

The cold house. If anyone can go in and come back out, it’s Brigid. Just don’t eat any of the food or drink any of the wine.
