The Rundown: Leda and her sister find their world turned upside down after an unexpected and deadly visit. 

Leda is growing increasingly frustrated with her little sister Izzy, the attention Izzy gets and the destructive and ingenious traps that she sets for her. After telling her concerns to Paul online, she finds herself the victim of more traps as Izzy seems to not get the attention she needs from her parents. Looking for a way to find some peace, Leda locks herself in the bathroom to take a bath.

Unfortunately, her peace doesn’t last for long when a masked man breaks into their home and murders Leda’s parents. As he goes through the house, he finds himself dealing with a determined and resourceful Izzy who has to convince her sister that they are in danger. 

The Story: A wonderfully dark, yet inspirational story of love between siblings. The story has a great buildup with fantastic rising tension that engages the reader with every fear filled moment. The characters are as engaging as the premise and I loved the resourcefulness of its characters and how the story conveys the relationship between Leda and Izzy. 

The Art: Zarcone and Sterle deliver some beautiful art throughout the issue. The character designs are fantastic and the visuals engage the reader.
