Our unorthodox team up seems to be finding their groove this issue, but there may still be a few bugs to work out.

Rex the Razer is single-handedly taking on an entire army but they are starting to get the better of him until Punk Mambo comes in and helps him get away, much to the horror of Rex who makes it abundantly clear he didn’t want help. He does, however, need help and whether he wants it or not he has it. As Razer tells the history of how Babel came to be the foe he is now Ninjak hears something and goes to investigate, he very quickly returns with news if a Bereaver (an enemy who can kill with just a word) and before anyone has time to think he unleashes his countermeasure against the Bereavers voice. Although unorthodox it does work and they best the Bereaver but not before one of the team is kidnapped, they ‘persuade’ the Bereaver to tell them where their teammate has been taken and he also basically lays out Babel’s plan as baddies often do when they think they have already won.

I’m not going to reveal who was taken but Babel has big plans for them and their abilities and even though it looks like they would never help him if the team doesn’t get there quickly you never know what might happen.

Brilliant issue, the characters are funny, interact together perfectly and all have their part to play. I’m really enjoying this story and can’t wait for the next issue

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.
