Wow! This issue takes the story to a whole new level from issue 1!

I knew I was going to like it but it exceeded my expectations. What’s not to love about a group of sociopathic kids who were trained to kill in the worst way possible now grown up and looking for revenge? Abel looks to be slightly different from the rest and so far looks keen on taking them down but the why isn’t very clear, is he genuinely worried about what’s coming or is he just after a challenge?

Black Forest have taken over a hospital and have hostages and also has the absolute best response to AI communication request that I have ever seen! Abel goes in to stop them and not only surprises Kira but also Benjamin who thinks Abel has gone soft, NOPE!

This is definitely going to be a comic that pushes the violence and shock levels up very likely with every issue as if Abel is correct something big is on its way and going by Cains antics so far anything is possible!

Will Kira be able to keep Abel under control or will his influence rub off on her as they keep working closely together, and what will happen when Cain and Abel finally meet each other again?? Cant wait!

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
