The Rundown: Virgil has one chance to save both himself and the people he once called friend, but it might be too late for any of them.

With Virgil in custody, the dark forces he’s been hunting gather to demand him be turned over to them. While Virgil pleads with Levon to let him go, the men must decide whether or not to trust the creatures standing before them. Virgil’s next move is to attempt to convince Frances to let him go so that he can stop the creatures. Something she finally does and allows Virgil to take the fight to the monsters gathered around the jail.

After seeing that the creatures are scared, the others choose to help Virgil fight them off when they return. After consulting with everyone and getting a plan in place, the creatures return and the men manage to hold them at bay. When one of them goes after Frances, Virgil intervenes and the ensuing battle will show the full force of Virgil’s fury for better or worse.

The Story: A well plotted and exciting story throughout. There is a great level of tension in the plot and Arcudi manages to tap into that tension at key moments that will shape not only Virgil’s story going forward but also how the people he cares about see him. The action was intense and enhanced the story brilliantly. I’m interested in seeing where the story goes next.

The Art: Valerio Giangiordano delivers some stunning imagery throughout the issue. There are so many great visual moments to be found and the art style perfectly captures the mood and tone of the story.
