Synopsis

Cataclysm revealed! Fighting to stay alive on the streets of New Orleans, it’s finally time for Dylan to learn the truth about his father’s murder—he just has to make it through tonight first.

Review

In this issue we find out more behind the death of Dylan’s father and find out truth around the hero’s suspicious ending. Through a series of flashbacks we discover Dylan’s origins and the rough start to life he had, his father the world famous superhero unceremoniously leaving the marital home when he was only a small baby leaving Dylan’s mother to bring him up solo, this hurt Dylan’s mother deeply making her vow to protect Dylan from his father at all costs, but how do you stop a superhero? Where there’s a will there’s a way. Not only does Dylan have to get his head around this little family situation a visit from the ever lovely Demonika makes sure Dylan or Rogue Sun has his hands full but his mental state makes him vulnerable to the attack, this certainly won’t be a walk in the park for Dylan, there is someone to help him, but is it help that’s on offer or a more sinister offering that cpuld hurt Dylan more deeply.

The writing of this issue seems more indepth than others really exploring the emotions of the characters giving them reasons for being who they are, Ryan Parrott brings his A game once again with the writing in this issue, you get the normal action packed you also get the vital back story of the main characters adding more fluidity to the story arc as a whole.

Simone Ragazzoni and Abel take control of illustrations for this issue and the combined artistic skills have come together to create a visual comic that feels like 3D, the bold and striking colours mixed with dramatic tones really give the book a darker more intense depth and it really works

Verdict

Another great comic created by one of the best creative teams out there. A story that is deep with raw emotion and burning hatred. The ending issues look set to be the event certainly not to missed
