    If it's the arc being written by Christopher Priest? If so, then yeah, his stuff does tend to be a little jarring to read due to his preference toward storytelling in anachronistic order. He was part of the team that made the line-wide prelude issue, which also did similar back and forth jumping with timestamped letter box headings.

    I totally get it, I really enjoy these series but I’ve been slowly following along in trade when I can.

    It's mostly due to the general lack of the free time I once had (focusing on school things right now). I still love this line, but I have a bit of catching up to do with most the books.

    I read the Catalyst prime one-shot finally. It's a bit much as Priest's non linearity can be too jarring.

    Yep, like I said above on this page. Apparently, it's how he writes, and it can be kind of frustrating, depending on how he goes about it in a given work.

    I think it works better in the one-shot for atmospheric purposes, since that's just a single issue, so it can benefit from the uniqueness without being bogged down by repeated usage of this method. But it can feel tedious in serial ongoing works.

    The new issue of Astonisher is still jarring but it had more engaging emotional material between Magnus and Drew.

    Edit-Quincredible was pretty fun.
