“I’m getting a little tired of saying nice things about IDW’s Smoke and Mirrors.
As I’ve said ad nauseum, the best part of this series is its imagination. The amount of new, original ideas Costa, Browne, and Armstrong threw out there in the first three issues were crazy, and there hasn’t been a stupid or unimportant one in the bunch.

There is more plot than in previous issues, yes, but as the pieces are put in place for the final issue, we’re still introduced to some more familiar concepts such as naming andlodestones.
