The Rundown: Abel bonds with his fellow workers and an act of heroism becomes a new opportunity.
Abel and the rest of his crew are getting used to life on Raider Farms but the dangerous aspect of their new job comes to painful light when Bobby almost drops her load. When an accident occurs, one of the workers becomes engulfed in flames. It takes quick thinking on the part of Abel to help the man as everyone else stands around afraid.
Back at the base, Abel and the rest of the crew find quiet time to recount and recall the circumstances that brought them to the farm in the first place and even Junie recounts the tragic story of her life with her parents. When Abel is called to see Raider in his office, an opportunity from the man will prompt Abel to make a decision about his future.
The Story: Young takes the time to delve deeper into the stories of the kids who surround Abel and they are just as compelling as his own. There is some great dialogue in this issue and the moments that Abel almost loses control are thrilling and entertaining. Abel’s story continues to be engaging and the world that Skottie Young has created is one of the most interesting and entertaining in comics today.
The Art: Jorge Corona delivers some beautiful and awe-inspiring art in this issue. From the detailed, expression-filled characters to the thrilling action moments, the art in this issue is powerful.
