The Rundown: Daisy faces the full power of the Red Mother and her life will never be the same.
It has all come to this. Daisy is in the lair of the Red Mother standing face to face with an ancient entity who tells her of her true purpose. A purpose that connects the two of them across time and space. As Daisy listens, she sees the herald of the Red Mother and how it is connected to her through the love that she lost. As she approaches her destiny, Daisy wants to free him from the Red Mother, but must agree to the entities demand in order to do so.
As the Red Mother gets closer, Daisy will have to decide whether or not she will become something new. Something that the Red Mother has been grooming and manipulating her life to become. When she sees the creature for what she truly is, Daisy will find a strength she didn’t know she had. But will it be enough to free her from the power of the Red Mother.
The Story: Jeremy Haun brings the story to a satisfying conclusion with this issue. The story fulfills all the promise that the series established and answers some of the lingering questions about the plot and its characters. There are some great moments for Daisy in this issue and Haun does a great job of making the stakes personal by keeping the focus solely on both Daisy and the Red Mother. A great final issue that teases some great possibilities to come.
The Art: Danny Luckert does an amazing job with the art in the issue. The details are beautiful and the creatures are perfect in their menace and appearance.
