The Rundown: Nathan surprises Cross and the others with the one thing that can possibly stop another terrorist attack.
Amanda Cross feels defeated and when Nathan tries to cheer her up, she is not receptive until he finally reveals that he has the Ian Black memory drive that they’ve been looking for. After contacting the fleet standing between them and open space, Cross demands to speak to someone in charge and she gets the President on the line.
After making a deal to save everyone on the ship with Nathan’s help, the Weatherman and Cross are brought to a ship in order to have Black’s consciousness uploaded. When complications arise, more extreme measures are taken and Nathan is turned into something horrible before being sent off to infiltrate the terrorist group.
The Story: Jody Leheup tees up the reader for another great story. Nathan is evolving as a character and that makes what happens to him all the more emotional because we’ve gotten invested in his journey. Cross has evolved as well and her arc becomes more interesting as circumstances challenge her on her beliefs as well as her mission. The plot is consistently engaging and inventive and I love all the twists and turns that this story continues to take. I can’t wait to see where it goes next and how insane Leheup can make it.
The Art: Nathan Fox nails it with the art in this issue. The characters come to life in the panels and the moments between are beautiful to look at. The action is fantastic and all of the details in the ship and backgrounds are a visual feast for the eyes.
