The Rundown: Virgil finds himself on the other side of the war and makes more discoveries about his path.
After being saved from hanging, Virgil heads back into town and is confronted by Nurse Frances. After convincing her that he is not a cold blooded killer, he returns to the rebels with a gift of horses and they allow him to ride on with them out of the territory. When they arrive at a place that they cannot easily cross, Virgil realizes that this might be the place his dreams told him to go. Wanting to know more about his path, he has a vision.
In his vision he learns of the creatures feeding off the pain and hatred of war and also that he will be able to see them. When he comes out of his vision, he sees that the man who has been helping him is one of the creatures he is tasked to kill. Unfortunately, a Native man killing a demon in the form of a white man won’t sit right with either side of the war and Two Moons will find his job that much harder when he’s captured again.
The Story: Two Moons is taking some interesting turns story wise and I am engaged with the character of Virgil and the challenges he faces now that he knows what his journey is. The fact that he is a Native American in the middle of the Civil War tasked with killing demons who hide in the skin of white men makes for great drama and suspense. Arcudi has grabbed my attention with this plot and I am on board to see where this story goes and what happens next.
The Art: Valerio Giangiordano delivers some beautiful art throughout this issue. Everything from the characters to the horror elements are visually stunning.
