The Rundown: Nemesis makes the next part of his plan personal and ends it with a bang.
More explosions rock the streets of Los Angeles as Nemesis takes another bold step in his plan and this time it involves kidnapping the chief of police from his own helicopter. In the ensuing chaos, the newly elected mayor gives one of his friends on the force a call to inquire if this attack on the city might be connected to their shared past.
At the same time, Nemesis allows the police to find the chief and proceeds to tell him and another officer on the scene why they were targeted. A story that will bring him back to his past and a mystery involving the highest seat of power.
The Story: Millar crafts a gritty, tension filled nightmare in this issue and I loved every violent, calculated moment of it. The story delivers on action, mystery and a dark humor that makes it compelling. I like seeing the back story of the character and the hints that there are bigger things on the horizon as far as his plan. I love the revenge elements as well and the mystery behind it is something I want to discover.
The Art: Jimenez delivers beautiful art on every page of the issue. The visuals are brilliant, dynamic and exciting. The art style is perfect for this story and the action is amazing.
