The Rundown: While searching for Lobo Crush finds herself on a date.
Crush travels to Space Las Vegas. There she gathers leads on his whereabouts. Soon, an unexpected encounter changes Crush’s plans dramatically. She then spends an event filled amount of time with someone interesting. After an altercation occurs, Crush has a revelation. Finally, she receives a tip regarding Lobo’s whereabouts.
The Story: Tamaki provides another interesting chapter detailing the adventures of Crush. Although this humor filled series often feels like a psychedelic dream, it is ultimately a story of self-acceptance and introspection. This particular chapter struck me as a possible turning point for Crush. As she is forced to reckon with her actions, she recognizes a pattern in her behavior. I feel that is a promising step for her character. And while I am looking forward to an epic showdown between Crush and he father, I am more interested in how she will grow from the experience.
The Art: This eye-catching issue is filled with bold colors and detailed drawings. The aliens are fun and interesting. And every panel is filled with excitement and flare.
