The Rundown: After Ami and Buzz are discovered, Meg plans her revenge.
Ami and Buzz have been located and Meg is ready to hunt them down with the help of the ghosts on her side. As Rip learns more about the group’s mission, he discovers they aren’t as well organized as they like people to think they are. Rip tries to help Meg, but the influence of her dead bandmates is too strong and the only thing she can think of is killing Ami, Buzz and anyone connected to the house.
In a fit of rage, Meg lashes out when Rzor and the rest of his team try to stop her from taking the ghosts and the influence of the ghosts connected with her causes her to do the one thing she didn’t think she could. In the aftermath, she decides that Ami and Buzz are innocent, but she still is being influenced by the ghosts and decides to find some new rage-filled spirits to heed her call.
The Story: Watters crafts an impressive and entertaining story in this issue. Not only is the suspense well done, but the character development is fantastic. The conflict both within Meg and externally continues to be compelling and her vendetta against Ami leads to some great dialogue and drama. The entire premise is tense and all of the action and suspense lead to an awesome cliffhanger ending that makes me want to see what happens next.
The Art: Wijngaard delivers some beautiful art in this issue. There are so many great visual moments to be found and the action is thrilling.
