The action in this issue is incredibly messy and difficult to follow at times. I thought maybe I had a page missing because the double cross isn't executed well, I had to go back and reread the panels a couple of times to fully comprehend what was presently happening and what led up to this moment off-page. Also, how does that bear trap mechanism work? It's clearly not functioning as a typical bear trap would, so it has been altered, but it is used near the end in a way that I'm not buying. Why would they destroy the kitchens if food is the motive? And boy, do certain characters ditch their home and comrades without much hesitation. That being said, the emotions and drama are well written, so the heart of the story shines through, I just hope that experience will improve the pacing and clarity of this book over time.
