Everyone is getting bolder in this new issue and some of the characters are flirting with disaster.
The detective watching the Winters family has rebuked their offer to reconnect with her dead son and her determination to take the family down only increases along with her resolve. Billy and his crew are lying in wait to send a message to the cartel about moving their operation out of New Orleans. A special message that will require Brigitte.
At the same time, Brae is unaware that he is sleeping with the enemy and doesn’t know how close he came to dying at the hands of Letitia. Back at the Winters home, Brigitte is learning more about the other uses of ash and Grace’s connection to her dead husband continues to grow. On the streets, a new high roller has hit the town and Leon needs to know everything he can about him as Letitia meets with a familiar face to broker a new deal that will cripple the Winters family.
Cullen Bunn continues to write a compelling and intriguing mystery with dynamic and interesting characters. Every aspect of the story is more interesting than the next and the story seems to be building to something really entertaining and revelatory for the reader. The dialogue is great and all of the characters jump off the page and connect.
Jonas Scharf’s art is gripping, powerful and beautiful. The way the panels are laid out and how they perfectly match the tone of the story is amazing. A great issue that promises interesting things to come.
