Publication Date: 8 August 2018

Oh boy. There has been quite a journey in only three issues so far this series. We have had stately Tarantinoesque cool, awesome cars, horrific violence and a tale of life on the open road. Will this issue give us some new qualities to tickle our fancy? Let's see!

Geez. This issue moves so fast that you will smell the burning rubber. Wow. This is hi-octane and gripping. From the first page to the last you will be pinned back in your seat as you read. It opens with the escape of our two trapped heroes alongside the girl they are rescuing having to secure escape from the horror of the freezers they are trapped in. Then there is the mother of all comic book car chases which is filled with peril and excitement. It manages to make the stillness of the comic panel screech off the page.

The art really excels in this issue. Issue 1 was fantastic. This issue is better and is the best of the series so far. It is tremendously encouraging because the art is really vibrant and interesting. The actual character's faces are so expressive, it is really funny in parts and you see the exasperation and tension pinned clearly on Glory's face throughout.

Bits and Pieces

Another great issue but one that excels what has come before. The issue also ends with quite a nice cliffhanger, and a leak of information that will put Glory, and Red in serious danger. It will feel like a very a long wait until the next issue.
