The Rundown: Dylan continues his investigation of his father’s death and discovers a suspect close to home.

In the aftermath of the battle between Dylan and the half vampire/half werewolf assassin he dealt with the night before, his half-sister Aurie takes him into town to see someone that can help them. Dylan discovers that all of the creatures that his father has fought have been imprisoned in a magical jail that one of his family’s closest friends holds the keys to.

After dropping off their prisoner, Dylan and the ghost of his father go back to the scene of his death and he reveals that his prime suspect in his own murder is a member of his family. With evidence mounting that he might be right, Dylan suits up to follow his sibling and discovers something unusual. At the same time, one of the prisoners has escaped and meets with an unexpected ally.

The Story: Parrott continues to expand the mystery and does a great job of misdirection with the subject of the investigation. There are some interesting and challenging character layers in the story and the interpersonal drama continues to be one of its biggest draws as Dylan continues to confront his relationship with his father as well as his siblings. The world building of the story is interesting as well and I like the direction the story is taking.

The Art: Both artists deliver some fantastic visual moments filled with both great horror aesthetics and action.
