A tragic direction for Metalhead to take, but I can identify with him at the same time. Emotions can be difficult enough to deal with as an average person, but when they are digitized, who knows what the experience would be? I like the original design for Metalhead, so I hope this isn't the last we see of it. The personality of each brother in the Hamato family shines through here, they each have their own opinion of the situation and watching them work things out as they go feels true to life. The only problem that I have with the art is that the facial expressions get a little wonky in certain panels.
The backup story is excellent as well as it continues Jennika's story, this time with Mikey featured. Are those zombies that Mikey fights? That threw me a little bit, I don't recall that ever happening in the IDW continuity unless this is something that will happen down the line. Is that jogger supposed to be Jennika?. I don't know, it would raise less questions to just have Mikey fight off typical muggers. The prison part of the story though, super cool but also incredibly tragic, it's a shame we couldn't spend a full issue flushing out Jennika's prison story because I loved what little we got of that.
