The Rundown: Billy’s personality shift continues to become a problem for the Captain.

Billy is still dealing with the aftermath of his outburst in public and his family is not going to go easy on him. Unfortunately, things get stranger when the consequences of one of his recent actions stomps to his front door.

As his family deals with their uninvited guest, Billy discovers that Psycho Pirate has decided to rob a museum. Thinking that the emotional manipulator is behind his present problems, Billy turns into the Captain and goes after him while one of his siblings discovers the shocking truth.

The Story: Waid continues to craft an interesting and thoroughly entertaining story for Billy in this issue. I continue to enjoy how the mystery at the heart of the story evolves as well as the wonderful mixture of drama and comedy. There is some great action throughout the story and I love not only the pacing of the story, but how the plot unfolds in a way that kept me engaged from start to finish.

The Art: Dan Mora delivers some beautiful art on every page of the issue. I love the visual composition of the action and how Mora manages to capture the drama of a moment while also delivering gorgeous details and fun, lively imagery.
