The Rundown: After being cured from a mind-altering illness, Jessica Drew must battle a fierce enemy with deadly plans.
Jessica confronts Octavia in the aftermath of a tragedy. Then the two engage in battle. After an unexpected encounter, Jessica must find a way to make amends.
The Story: Karla Pacheco delivers a high-octane conclusion to a multi-issue story arc. The majority of the issue encompasses by a fight. Yet, we are still treated to great character development. Including some strong, emotionally driven dialog and content. Each page was captivating. And even though the ending was very satisfying, I am excited to read about her next set of adventures.
The Art: Pere Perez creates detailed drawings highlighted by the intense color work of Frank D’armata. This issue is visually stunning. The fight scenes are well done and intense. However, it is the use of facial expression that really delivers. The emotionality is amped up as the character features are contorted to depict sadness, horror, and rage. The experience was completely enthralling.
