The Rundown: Two heroes go on the run. A cop investigates a murder and a New God mourns.
As the rest of the Danger Street kids gather to mourn the death of their friend, they decide that they are going to find out who did it and make them pay. At the same time, Warlord and Starman check into a hotel as Starman deals with the consequences of his actions on the beach. Actions that have gotten the attention of a determined cop who wants justice.
After a series of explosions, Jack Ryder rails against the suspected terrorists on television while running down leads as The Creeper. Jack’s bosses get closer to finding out who killed their friend and a death brings Highfather to Apokolips to confront Darkseid. A confrontation that will have an unexpected conclusion.
The Story: King continues to craft an engaging and interesting story in this issue. There are several great mysteries being crafted in this series and each one is as compelling as the next with great characters that connect with the reader and keep me intrigued. The series is unique and the unique nature of it makes me excited to see what happens next.
The Art: Fornes delivers some great art in the issue. The different locations and emotional story beats are brilliantly illustrated in the issue.
