You’d think that freeing the townsfolk of Prosperity would earn Teddy a medal right? I mean, they were essentially enslaved to their VR headsets and completely disconnected from reality and wholly dependant on their leader Doc. Well, that’s not exactly the reception Teddy gets.

 

The Infinite Loop Nothing but the Truth has been a roller-coaster of a series as it continues to explore themes of self and also how technology can be used for good and evil. This final issue of the mini-series we do get some answers, but are still left with some mysteries for a potential continuation of this universe.

 

We start off the book exactly where we left off last issue: Teddy has just freed the townsfolk of Prosperity from their technological imprisonment, only to be greeted by a litany of anger. It seems the townsfolk were more than agreeable in being trapped in their own little world away from their day-to-day lives. There’s a great quote from Teddy in this issue that sums up these people: “When did freedom become their enemy?”. It is almost allegorical to how a lot of people in the real world will accept something, no matter how terrible it is, simply because it fits within their own worldview.

 

As for the rest of the cast, Columbia is now dealing with the loss of not only her mother, but also of her father (who “sacrificed” himself to destroy Doc) and Ano is coming to grips with her ouster from the political forum.

 

In all, this was a fun series to read and could easily recommend to any fans of comics in general. I’ll admit it was sometimes difficult keeping up month to month with the story - the reason why I think the third issue was a little confusing - but in trade format, this will be an excellent read.

Our Score:

8/10
