The Rundown: Flynn discovers more about her mysterious new savior, but Agony and Ecstasy are hot on her heels.

Flynn believes that she might be safe with her friend’s new friend Teague, but there are powerful forces that are anticipating what comes next. At the same time, Mr. Agony and Mr. Ecstasy have resurrected one of Flynn’s friends to kill her directly now that they have new orders.

As Flynn learns more about her new host, she discovers something interesting about the man who came to view her art. A man known as the Corinthian. When Agony and Ecstasy make their way to Teague’s home, the billionaire decides to offer up Flynn for something valuable, information. Unfortunately, an interested third party arrives to alter the stakes.

The Story: James Tynion IV does a great job with upping the stakes of the story and giving some entertaining back story on the characters. Unfortunately, I kept waiting for something to happen in this issue. It was a good story that has some good moments, but with the exception of the ending, it never really seemed to connect with me because it felt like filler. I look forward to the next issue though because the final page grabbed my attention.

The Art: Estherren delivers some great art in the issue. I really enjoyed the character designs and the composition.
