The Rundown: Freysa and her crew attempt an extraction mission. Yotun makes plans for a major event.
In the opening, Silka, Farhad, and Dyson cause a major disturbance in Los Angeles. Elsewhere, Yotun muses over an immobilized enemy. Later, Freysa and her crew of replicants meet with Yotun. He decides to forgive Silka for a past offense and makes an interesting offer to the rest of the group. Then, Yotun takes Freysa with him on a special mission. Finally, Silka, Farhad, and Dyson attempt to rescue someone important.
The Story: Johnson creates a compelling narrative filled with mystery. I’m curious as to what Yotun’s designs are for Los Angeles. And if those initiatives include Freya. I also found his inner monologue interesting. It makes me want to know more about his perspective. I look forward to the next chapter of this adventure.
The Art: The illustrations in this chapter are in a traditional comic styling. The attention to detail and emphasis on character expression are visually appealing and create an emotional connection to the story. And the muted color work did a nice job of setting the tone for each scene. Overall, I found this issue to be very transportive and interesting.
