The Rundown: The Academy has an eventful encounter with The Bold Folks Home.
Prufrock awakens from a nightmare. Later, he and Mallory discover a recording of Sid. And soon they discover their new home is not empty. After an unusual conversation, the Academy family meet the family at The Bold Folks Home. While the two families sit down for a meal, Prufrock makes a discovery. Then, an altercation with a Stranger causes issues among the household and the Academy are forced to fend for themselves. When two members choose to join The Bold Folks Home, they learn something surprising. Finally, the Academy run into the Carnies.
The Story: Boss and Rosenberg continue to flesh out the post-apocalyptic world they have created. It is interesting to see how the different families adhere to certain themes. Especially with their youth and limited understanding of the world. I am extremely curious about the Strangers and their backstory. Although they are presented as other-worldly, they seem surprisingly human. It will be interesting to find out how the Strangers connect with the different families, and what is the nature of their beings.
The Art: The illustrations in this chapter feature traditional drawings set with cool color work. I found the panels visually engaging and felt that the tone of the artwork perfectly matches the story.
