I was going to post a thread asking someone for clarification on the sky writing dates. Toni explains to Tony in issue 40 that the sky writing above altilis was spotted one year before the onset of the bird flu on earth. I was confused about that because issue 4 says the sky writing appeared there 24 years ago. I had overlooked the fact that Altilis-738 is 24 light years away, so the Altilis-738 seen through an Earth telescope is the Planet as it appeared 24 years ago, so the destruction of Altilis-738 that happened "tonight" in issue #4 was actually roughly 24 years earlier, and the script that appeared exactly one year before the bird flu started, actually appeared exactly 25 years before the bird flu started. .. right?
Yes her explanation of time and the events of what is going to happen really make you stop and think --- I am due to go back and re-read from the start.
