The Rundown: Jessica struggles to balance crime fighting with family life.
When Jessica receives a request from a former foe, she alienates Roger by prioritizing work over her family. She then meets with Luis, an incarcerated member of the Twin Blades of Toledo. After an enlightening conversation, his brother Ray appears and an all out brawl ensues. During the altercation, something unexpected occurs, and the brothers find themselves in an awkward position. Later, Jessica must deal with a heartbreaking situation. Meanwhile the twins formulate a new plan.
The Story: Pacheco creates a fast paced, high energy storyline that contains lots of action. The characters of the Twin Blades are fleshed out in this episode. They are an interesting pair and I hope we get to see more of them in the series. I am also very interested in Jessica on a personal level. Her interactions with friends and family make for a compelling narrative that always leaves me ready for more.
The Art: This issue is filled with vibrant colors and detailed artwork. The fight scenes are well done. And the contrast of red and blue in the fighters’ wardrobes are visually appealing.
