The Rundown: A card game gone wrong leads Sonja to cross paths with the daughter of powerful villain.
The issue opens with Sonja participating in a high stakes card game. When things go awry, she escapes into the city where she meets up with her team and head underwater. Soon, Sonja is tasked with rescuing a mysterious woman with a dangerous background. Later, she must make a difficult decision when a request for help involves a deadly potential enemy.
The Story: Andreyko crafts an interesting narrative in the premiere chapter of this limited series. I think this storyline of advanced technology and star-crossed lovers has a lot of potential and I am curious as to how it will develop.
The Art: The illustration in this edition features a realistic modern design with bold colors and extreme detail in both character and background. The artwork is visually appealing and immersive. The creative team has done an amazing job of bringing the world of the story to life.
