The Rundown: In the aftermath of tragedy, Honeysuckle will learn a dark truth about someone close to her.

It’s been days since Honeysuckle and her friends have returned from their trip and she takes that time to bury the dead between storms. After a moving eulogy from Templeton, everyone moves inside, but Honeysuckle cannot escape the feeling that something is wrong. That something has been left undone.

As the three of them sit and think of what will happen when the next round of rain appears, Honeysuckle starts to think about some of the things that Templeton and his mother have said to her. Things that have a direct link to the events that have been playing out in the world. Things that will lead to a tense standoff, murder and sacrifice.

The Story: Hill and Booher brilliantly build the tension throughout this issue. There are so many great cerebral elements to the story and I liked seeing Honeysuckle put together the pieces of the puzzle. There are some great surprises and revelations throughout the plot and the story comes to a beautifully tragic and dramatic climax. A consistently beautiful and brilliantly human series.

The Art: Thorogood delivers some beautifully detailed and stylish art on every page of this issue. The art perfectly captures the mood, tone and emotion of the characters.
