Least favourite of the series so far, the back story loses momentum fast and struggles to connect to the rest of the series. There are a couple standoff's (one in the past, one in the present) with no payoff. Pretty meandering stuff.

But the worst was the art, for half of it the artist really fell short -drawing eyes that looked wonky or glossed over and faces with about as much expression as a blow-up doll. For a series that drew me in for the great art and realistic expressions - this was the biggest disappointment.
