This series has a tremendously large canvas. The central characters of Randy and Amelia have been establishing themselves in a new village further south. The character numbers continue to grow. Will we be able to keep up? Let's see. 

Well the action and intrigue just kept increasing in this issue, but it moved so rapidly and quickly that I must confess I found it quite hard to keep up. There is a blitz of new characters with the location change and while I could still follow the thread of the story I did think that sometimes this book expects the reader to do a little too much when it throws new characters in. 

The art is as fine as always. Beautiful line art, very fine detail and not too heavy on the inks which makes space for the wonderful use of color. I also feel that the central characters of Amalia and Randy really are looking great in this issue, and the opening pages are really oozing gangster chic. 

Bits and Pieces

This was a little bit of a stretch but by the end of the issue I felt that it had course corrected enough to end strongly, Not the best issue of this fine series, but the watermark has been pretty high to date. An average issue of this series is still better than most.
