The Rundown: Scythia returns for Darcy and is willing to kill Wand to get what she wants.

After magically casting Scythia out of the town, Wanda and Darcy begin to rebuild the shop. Unbeknownst to them both, Scythia has acquired more of the metal that negates Wanda’s magic. Enough of it to create a suit of armor that allows her to break the barrier and return.

After the pair continue their explosive battle, Scythia warns Wanda that protecting Darcy could cost her her life, but Wanda decides to stand up for her new friend with unexpected results. At the same time, two kids discover someone hiding in a cave outside of the town. Someone who could turn Wanda’s life upside down.

The Story: Orlando crafts a fun, engaging and action packed story filled with great moments for the character. The story has a great overall tone and draws in the reader and showcases the growth of Wanda and a wisdom that makes her internal journey more entertaining and compelling. I look forward to seeing where the character’s journey goes next and the cliffhanger at the end of the issue makes me more excited to see what happens next.

The Art: Dauterman delivers some beautifully detailed and wonderfully engaging art throughout the issue. The visual style is great for both the big action moments as well as the lighters character moments.
