Honor is on another mission for Talia and this one is designed to break her of any ideas about the importance of family.
Silencer and her “brother” are tasked with taking down the floating lab that is utilizing the genetic research that created them. While Honor continues to play the game and look at the killing of the test subjects as a mercy, she can’t help but think about her home, her family and what she needs to do to get back to them.
At the same time, her home life becomes more dangerous when her husband discovers more of the surveillance and security equipment that his wife has been keeping around the house. When two armed men confront him, he is given a subtle warning to stop asking questions and remember his wife for the person that she was. A prospect that gets harder and harder with every secret he uncovers.
When Honor and Raze make a final sweep of the boat, she discovers that there is another “sibling” being held there. One with powers that rival her own and when she discovers Honor has a family, the Silencer’s personal life becomes a target.
Dan Abnett takes this story to amazing places. This issue is amazing and Honor’s conflicts continue to be great drama for the character. Abnett adds an additional level of drama and a new threat to Silencer’s world and I can’t wait to see where this story goes next.
V Ken Marion’s art is magnificent. All of the panels are dynamic and full of glorious details.
