The Rundown: Joan has settled into domestic life, but she knows that everything she has grown to love is an illusion.
With her typical escape routes from her latest incarnation no longer working, Joan has found a sense of relative comfort in her domestic life complete with doting husband and two children. While the rest of the world chugs along with its routine, Joan knows that there is something wrong and even her attempts to get her husbands attention fall short.
When her latest attempt to get Don to realize things are wrong fails, she goes to her father for help and tries to convince him things are wrong. A conversation that will lead her husband to have her taken somewhere to get help.
The Story: King expands Joan’s world in this new issue and I loved every moment of it. While the other issues had Joan running from relationships because she knows the conclusion, this one had her trying to keep her relationship and family even though she knows things are becoming increasingly strange including the year never changing. This issue continues a great mystery filled with suspense and surprises.
The Art: Charretier delivers fantastic visuals throughout the issue. I continue to be engaged with the style of the series and the rich beauty of its world.
