The Rundown: Sonny and his companions are on the run from a contracted killer.
In Chinatown, the police ransack Sonny’s apartment and report their finding to Mayor Oak. Meanwhile, Sonny and Neva rescue her son from a scary situation. Soon, they find themselves being pursued by one of Mayor Oak’s henchmen. After a violent confrontation, Sonny and company drive away from a crime scene before the police can arrive. Finally, Mayor Oak does something that will have a massive impact on Sonny and those in his care.
The Story: Remender provides an interesting fourth chapter in this series. The hints of Sonny’s past history has me intrigued. I want to know more about who he is and what prompted him to begin this perilous investigation. I am also worried for the safety of those in his care, especially as Sonny always appears less than prepared for a fight. I look forward to the next installment.
The Art: As in previous issues, this issue is very light on words and the majority of the story is told through the illustration. The detailed drawings and muted color work perfectly match the tone of the story, and the emphasis on facial expression and character form really connect the readers to the characters being presented.
