The Rundown: As the country continues to divide, the Crisis Command devises a bold strategy to subvert an oncoming tragedy.
After the revelations about Frontier and her connection their new enemy Executrix, the team is fractured. As they try to do good in whateve way they can, they are undecided on what to do about the death of empathy around the world. At the same time, Frontier teams up with Thunder Woman to find a possible solution for the death of an idea, but first they will have to deal with a potential threat beneath the seas.
As the team gathers to discuss the current situation, they recall the decisions they made as the Presidents of their worlds and the regrets they had about not telling people the truth. As a destructive bill gets further along to being law, the Crisis Command holds a press conference to arm the citizens with the one thing they hope might save the planet, the truth.
The Story: Orlando continues to mix some engaging and interesting ideas into this series and this issue is no exception. The contrast between Frontier’s mission and the rest of the team is well done and the story poses some intriguing questions about the nature of evil. I really enjoyed the dialogue and seeing more of the back story of the characters. There is a sense of urgency to the plot that makes me more interested in seeing how it will unfold.
The Art: Davide Tinto delivers some beautiful and detailed art throughout the issue. There are some great action beats and the characters look amazing. This issue is very character focused so Tinto does a great job of showcasing character emotions throughout.
