The Rundown: Alfred Pennyworth comes face to face with an old acquaintance as the memories from his past finally directly connects to the present day.

Now, Alfred has an interesting conversation with Shirley that leads him to make an unexpected decision. Afterwards, the pair rescue another old friend from captivity. Then the group must decide how to proceed. In the past, Alfred escapes the enemy using an unusual method.

The Story: The penultimate chapter in this series is expertly crafted by Wilson. Now that the backstory is mainly completed, this issue takes place mostly in the present. I was really impressed by the explosiveness of the story and the intense action. There is an emotional connection I have to Alfred and his feelings towards the supporting characters that has built up since the first issue, and I am thankful that the writing in this series has led me to such feelings. I am looking forward to the conclusion of this brilliant saga.

The Art: the art in this issue is filled with cool tones in a variety of colors based on mood and location. The illustrations have a youthful vibe that is continuous in both eras and feels different from the previous chapters. Here, the current day is presented in a more energetic manner as Alfred’s engagements with past acquaintances changes the tone of his story.
