The Rundown: The group is in for some rough waters as they travel a new and dangerous part of America.
The group takes to the seas as Val remembers a traumatic moment from her past involving her mother and a mad dash to leave the country when things start to get rough. The only thing that makes her happy are her memories of being entertained by Captain Flag and his Last Line. Back in the present, the group finds themselves navigating the Seas of Imagination and being told that the only way they can move on to their destination is to come up with an American masterpiece.
Lottie laments the circumstances that brought them to America and how they are connected to the virus wiping out people all over the world. As she finds some comfort from her brother, the ship is attacked by a strange force. One that will do anything to stop their journey. In the midst of the battle, Cheng reveals something interesting and one of the group is thrown overboard only to wake up on a small island surrounded by some familiar faces.
The Story: Snyder and Soule begin a new and interesting journey for these characters in this issue. Taking them to a place where creativity is everything opens up so many possibilities both for storytelling and character development. I loved the pace of this issue and the adventure aspects of the story. It was good to see the characters have a small moment of reflection to let the reader enjoy them as people again before they are thrust back into the adventure. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
The Art: Camuncoli and Marcello Grassi continue to delight and amaze with the art in this issue. Not only do the characters look great and the action is thrilling, but the character designs are dazzling as well.
