The counterpoint to the impressive foundation of the two-volume, 1,200-page Church & State is the equally impressive, equally complex Mothers & Daughters, the first volume of which is Flight. This graphic novel concerns the fight between the newly established matriarchy and the opposing "daughterarchy." Cerebus, trying to regain the power he lost when the matriarchal Cirinists took over, heads down a fateful, blood-soaked path. Dave Sim is often reviled as a misogynist because of the radical politics and philosophy laid down in his books, the groundwork of which begins here and builds toward the climax of Mothers & Daughters, which was so explosive that when it was initially released it cost Sim several close friends.

Close to halfway in the series, it is still taking new turns and twist - sometimes driven by the personal life of the creator, and sometimes by a specific subject (oscar wilde). But most of all this is all about the journey of Cerebus from mindless barbarian to the end (Coming home, last day) Enjoy the journey!
I wonder how Dave Sim was able to kept the same quality of the previous books for so long time!
Cerebus have already been Prime Minister, Pope, owner of quite all the gold in the world, and has "ascended" to the Moon to find one of the most powerful beings in his universe, "the Judge". After all these top creative events, most writers would prefer to use the "hint" of the Judge and finish the saga. However, Dave Sim still had a lot of rabbits in his hat.
After the pause in Melmoth, Cerebus wakes from the shock of thinking that Jaka is dead and begins to kill every cirinist that appear in his path. Being, of course, underestimated even for Cirin (since he is only 3 feet tall).
This book is so intense that you just can't stop reading it.
More important, here begins a series of revelations about the origins of Cerebus, who he is, and his place in the events of things. I think everybody will be
delighted when Suenteus Po finally reveals himself as the third aadvark (since everybody should have already noticed that Cirin was an aadvark as well).
Finally this books prepares the so waited meeting among: Cerebus, Astoria, Cirin and Suenteus Po.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone. Moreover, I recommend everybody to buy all the Cerebus series.
