    I say may because it's unclear at this point whether father is meant in a literal sense or something more akin to a convent. Miss Daramount at least has the scars of corporal punishment spread across her arm to lend credence to the latter: Read Full Review

    But aside from the great character, issue #12 addresses the concerns that some fans have had by delivering significant story progression. We get a better idea of where the academy is located, new character relationships come to light, and while the overall air of mystery surrounding the school remains, just enough is peeled back to keep readers satiated and frustrated at the same time. This was the perfect way to follow up those previous character specific issues; I just hope Lara doesn't turn out to be just as manipulative as every other adult in the book. Read Full Review

    I liked this issue but I did have some problems with it. Once again we have a new mystery being dropped on our heads with no explanation or clarification of any of the old mysteries. This book seems to keep doing that. Read Full Review

    This was a breath of fresh air for the series as we met a pretty optimistic seeming new character and got some answers, even if they weren't the answers we were looking for. The art remains a real plus for the series due to the characters' wonderful acting. Read Full Review

    This was one of those cases where I liked the comic I was reading, but couldn't shake the feeling that it COULD have been better... Hodge's story just didn't really grab me like the past 5 issues did. I mean hell, if I'd have reviewed issue #11 I probably would have given it a perfect score because it WAS that good. That's another problem I had with this issue, it completely ignored issue #11's cliffhanger... Did Ike kill Abraham? Probably not, seeing as that Ike was still here, but how did that scene go down? Did he flat out refuse to kill Abraham? Did he say he'd consider it? We never find out. So while this issue was a step down from the prior 5 issues, it was still a strong issue. Read Full Review

    The addition of Hodge gives the comic yet another wild card. The start of a new arc, issue #12 is a good jump in point for those looking to jump into the series. Worth a look. Read Full Review
