The Rundown: Eve, her sister, and Wexler travel to Wisconsin and are met by adversaries.
Eve and her sister celebrate a major victory. Afterwards they discuss their parents’ contingency plans for humanity’s survival. Later, the sisters and Wexler discover something unusual as they journey to Wisconsin. Once there, they face an attack and later meet a surprising group of survivors.
The Story: LaValle is back with a new series that continues to follow this stunning character. Although it would be helpful to read the previous run, this chapter does an excellent job of recapping major plot points. There are a lot of details spread throughout this narrative that feel like promising future references. And I would encourage readers to pay close attention to the world building. I am intrigued by the Wisconsin survivors, and I appreciate their perspective on the current events. But I am most curious about their leader and what part she plays in the overall story.
Also, I would be remiss not to mention the Eye of Horus on Eve’s T-Shirt. It is not only a call back to the pervious series, but indicative of Eve’s connection not only to regeneration as a whole, but one of her father’s plans to save humanity. I love that the symbolism and thematic nature of the original series will continue in this narrative.
Overall, I really enjoyed this chapter and can’t wait to find out what will happen next for Eve and her companions.
The Art: The artwork in this issue has a modern, youthful styling with a color scheme heavily featuring the usage of green tones. Although the issue is light on action, the illustration’s detailed focus on both character and background is connective and transportive.
