The Rundown: Eve grows closer toward her mission’s completion. Wexler meets an old friend.
Eve and her sister have a series of discussions over a limited period of time. Eve learns about her parents plan, her own history, and a devastating situation involving Wexler. Eve’s sister also shares information about her past, and the two girl’s discover unexpected differences. Before Eve leaves for the final part of her mission, her sister discloses something shocking. Afterwards, Eve must decide how to process the given information. Later, Wexler confronts an old companion. He then makes a surprising choice.
The Story: In this chapter, LaValle once again adds new elements of intrigue to this complex and well crafted narrative. Eve’s origin story is extremely compelling. And I would love it if one day a series prequel would be released.
I was struck by the interpersonal dynamics given in this episode. The relationship between Eve and her sister is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. But it also makes a tragic point. We are running out of chances to make a change in global warming. And the older each generation grows, the less likely they are to make much difference.
Overall, I can’t say enough good things about this series. And I am extremely excited to find out the conclusion of this story in the next edition.
The Art: This visually appealing issue features a youthful design. The attention to detail and changing color schemes help keep the reader engaged and emotionally connected. I am impressed at how each page is able to remain fresh and interesting in such a content heavy episode. I found this issue to be extremely transportive.
