The Rundown: Silk investigates the murders of local gang members, while Saya Ishii uses an unusual method to gain information on her enemy.
Silk follows Derick Rivera as he tries to intercept a local gang for a news story. When she reaches the gang’s meeting spot, she is confronted by a surprising and deadly new foe. After a tragedy occurs, Silk agrees to meet with a group of rival gangs to facilitate a truce between them. Later, she goes to a therapy session where she meets someone unexpected.
Meanwhile, Saya meets with an associate to discuss their plans. Then, she engages in a conversation with a shocking ally.
The Story: Goo has crafted an intriguing narrative filled with action and humor. I am also enjoying the cultural references and diversity of the series. Marvel is doing a great job with highlighting people of different backgrounds and I am all for its continuance. I look forward to reading the next issue.
The Art: Bold and brilliant colors compliment the drawings of Takeshi Miazawa. The expressive characters bring emotional intensity to the story. And the action oriented panels are interesting and fun to look at. Overall, I found this to be a visually pleasing issue.
