The Rundown: Both Levi and Jennifer are separated within the Green, but both of them can feel something is wrong.
Jennifer continues her tour of the green with Woodrue as her guide. Not knowing who the man is, she finds herself trusting his judgement. Something she will quickly learn is a mistake. As she moves deeper into the green, Levi is challenged by Alec Holland to fully embrace what he is becoming.
As Levi learns more about the green, he makes a decision. One that will require the help of Ivy in order to make happen. As both work on the problem, Jennifer makes a discovery and both of them will learn that their trip to the green has gotten the attention of some nefarious parties.
The Story: Ram V ramps up the stakes in a satisfying continuation. While the story lacks a lot of the thrills of previous issues, taking the time for the character to embrace who and what he is becoming is a great way to move the story forward. There are great moments of revelation and dialogue throughout. The story flows well with the characters and Ram V does an excellent job of setting up the bigger threats and conflicts to come for Levi.
The Art: Perkins does a great job with the art in the issue. There are great details in every scene and the art does a brilliant job of creating the look of the green.
