The Rundown: A home invasion will lead one killer to the silver coin. A coin that has its own plans.
A trio of wannabe thieves break into a home looking for loot. In the course of their home invasion, the homeowner dies leaving the thieves scared and desperate. After looting everything that they could, one of them decides to use the opportunity to destroy any evidence that they were there and one of them decides to take a mysterious silver coin from the dead man.
As they make their escape, they find that they are not as clever as they thought as the police are quickly in pursuit. One of the thieves, Lisa, discovers a connection to the coin. A connection that is guiding her. One that decides to remove her companions and anyone that gets in the way of it making its way to its final destination.
The Story: Brisson brings the reader directly into the drama, action and terror of this issue. The story doesn’t waste any time getting to the meat of the plot and I appreciate that as a reader. This series is about the coin and what happens to the people in its orbit and that comes through with the rapid pace of the plot and the dialogue. I love the ominous pacing of the story as well as where the journey ultimately took the item. I am also really excited to see what happens next after the cliffhanger ending.
The Art: Walsh delivers some beautiful, powerful and engrossing imagery throughout the issue. There are some brilliant visual moments that are spellbinding.
