    Now the idea that Selina has a self-destructive personality is hardly new insight, and her relationship with Slam is a bit surprising, but it's hardly unexpected. What makes this issue stand apart from the crowd is that the book allows Selina to recognize the track that she's set herself upon, and having her self aware of her situation allows for a stronger character study. I mean it's one thing to follow a character whose behavior is clearly recognizable as self-destructive, but it's quite another to follow one who is able to not only recognize what they're doing is wrong, but is also unable to stop themselves from doing it. The same goes for the scene where we see Holly looks to be making a second trip down a path that nearly destroyed her the first time she ventured down it. One also has to feel for Slam, as we see he's also able to recognize this new fling is doing more harm than good, but he unwilling, or unable to allow himself to fully commit to this notion.
