To catch a slasher Cassie may just have to swallow her pride and work with one.

Despite being a dead man brought back to life Marcus is surprisingly funny and sarcastic and seems to be more than a match for Cassie. I really like the partnership of Cassie and Marcus with Cassie very reluctantly working with him while he seems to get a little amusement at working with her as if its a novelty the way she treats him.

I love how she sacrifices him to make her getaway and makes it clear at every given opportunity that he is a slasher no matter what. I think she may be warming to him but it’s going to take a lot to get over the slasher feeling. Angeles takes the Crow life way more seriously than Marcus does but she has something to fight against and has clear unfinished business while for Marcus staying around is a conscious thought and so he isn’t consumed by it.

Not going to lie but hearing Angeles story does make me root for her a little, the people she’s going after are not totally undeserving, to be honest, and I kind of hope she succeeds before Cassie kills her for good, of course, I can’t wait for the next showdown!

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
