The Rundown: The crew continues its search with a determined and revenge minded Paula hot on their heels.
The Vihaan II continues to speed through space on its rogue mission to find a living god. Unfortunately, the warp engines are taxed beyond their limits and Paula Richter is on their tail and she has no intentions of taking them in alive. With time running out, Captain Malik enlists his old friend and shipmate Alice to ready an old trick that’s worked for them before in a similar situation.
Dropping out of warp, the crew finds themselves in the presence of another dead god. With little time to prepare before Richter is on them, the crew sets a trap for the fighter on their tail. When a member of Malik’s crew tries to end the threat of Richter once and for all, everyone on the ship will discover that their search for a living god might be over sooner than they thought.
The Story: The action has increased and Al Ewing gives the characters more personal drama and connection to both each other and the reader. The story has a great pace and the conflict between Richter and Malik makes the story more interesting. I’m still waiting to get a sense of how Ewing is building out this world and its bigger conflicts, but there is enough atmosphere and conflict to keep me interested in the direction the story is taking.
The Art: Simone Di Meo delivers some amazing art in this issue. Every page is filled with beautiful imagery and the art perfectly captures the energy of the story.
