The Rundown: Sam and Nomad attempt to rescue civilians caught in a civil war while facing a threat from another dimension.
Sam and Nomad have met with the resistance group operating inside Mohannda before getting word that the government has bombed a local hospital. Knowing it could be a possible trap, Sam and Nomad take to the skies to rescue who they can while the White Wolf and his forces prepare for the next part of their plan for the country.
After starting their rescue efforts, White Wolf unleashes his trap with help from dark creatures from another dimension. As Sam and the others fight off this new threat, a new player enters the area. One who has a personal vendetta with Sam Wilson and wants revenge.
The Story: Intense and filled with great action, Onyebuchi delivers a great fast-paced story that keeps the reader engaged. There is a great level of tensions throughout the issue as Sam gets deeper into it with the political conflict and its ramifications both for the symbol he wears, but also for the people he’s trying to help. I continue to enjoy the storyline and how it evolves both the character of White Wolf, but the rest of the characters as well.
The Art: Silva delivers some beautifully detailed and visually thrilling art throughout the issue. The imagery is bright and conveys great action and emotion.
