Let’s take a moment to focus something other than our vigilante and his doings.
If you're expecting more of Dylan’s story, you won’t find much in this issue. That’s nothing to worry about, though. We get to delve into the life of another important character in this series and that’s Kira. We’ve gotten somewhat of her backstory in the first arc. But Ed Brubaker decides to take a break from the vigilante side of things and focus on something else.
That brings Kira to think of Dylan and the first time they met. At a karaoke bar, she saw something crack inside him while singing a Joni Mitchell song. From there they spent hours telling each other of their family secrets.
Although the story doesn’t pick up where we left off the last issue. This was the perfect break from Dylan's story to develop a character who’s been in the forefront this whole time. We got a glance of Kira’s past in the first arc. But now that her story is flushed out, I feel more emotionally connected to Kira than Dylan. With the reveal at the end of the issue, it’s safe to say Kira has a big stake in the story moving forward. It should go without saying, the art continues to be top notch. The art helps portray each character's expression. Helping me become attached to each character and dialed into their dialogue.
