    This installment does some of the heavy lifting to explain what's going on – in a limited way – while also making it clear that whatever big thing is behind it is pretty big with people in positions of power over others. You can suss out some of the basics and see how it'll unfold but the fun is in watching the kids react and try to come up with their own ways of dealing with things and their own issues. Douek's story works well here since it's not trying to introduce so much and that gives the characters a chance to breathe. Olivares' designs look great and I love the flow, the layouts, and just how the pieces come together with the designs, especially with Puppo's colorwork. It's a solid-looking book all around and a welcome change from how a lot of AfterShock books look. Read Full Review
