The Rundown: Jolene and her crew search for her twin sister Pamela while battling various dangers under the sea.
Jolene reminisces about her sister, but can’t help imagining the worst when she is interrupted by an apologetic Paul to attend a meeting. There they learn that Lucas has discovered the team is being followed. Unfortunately, their best method of evasion will keep them from electronically tracking Pamela. Paul comes up with another option and the team make significant progress in their search.
When a submarine is found, Jolene and two others search the vehicle and make a stunning discovery. Unfortunately, they are then attacked and must find a method of escape. Meanwhile, Eve makes plans to find Jolene’s team as well as the anomaly.
The Story: Andolfo and Goy have crafted and exciting tale filled with mystery and tragedy. This issue has really good character development. As well as action. The emotional component surrounding the many previous tragedies is nicely peppered into the overall tone of the narrative. I found myself completely invested in the welfare of the crew, especially Jolene. I can’t wait to see what new adventures they face in the next episode.
The Art: Andrea Broccardo uses detailed drawings highlighted by a colorful backdrop to convey the action and emotion of this issue. The underwater scenes are particularly well done. And the battle scenes are very engaging.
