The Rundown: Daisy’s destiny with the Red Mother gets closer and her world gets smaller in its wake.
A man has attacked Daisy and is poised to kill her. After apologizing to the woman and preparing to strike, he is attacked by the dark shape that has haunted Daisy’s waking and dreaming life. Daisy wants to know why the creature saved her, but her questions will have to wait as she goes home and sleeps for the next full day.
When she awakens, she discovers that her therapist has been flown in from the states by her boss. A gesture he assures her is a means of trying to help her. When the two go for an innocent walk, Daisy starts to get emotionally overcome by the attacks on her, the threats to her life and everything else. As Daisy goes home to rest, the forces that have been watching her gather to begin the next phase of their plan.
The Story: All of the pieces are falling into place and Jeremy Haun is crafting some killer dramatic moments throughout this issue. Not only is the drama getting more engaging, but the mysteries are getting more intriguing as they grow. I continue to enjoy the build up of this story and continue to be curious about where that build up will ultimately lead.
The Art: Danny Luckert delivers some great art in this issue. The Herald looks incredibly menacing and there are some great, dark moments that are given more power through the imagery.
