    The story opens with a flashback to a time when David and Kelly worked together on the nanobite project and discussed their hopes for the future. In the present, Duo takes to the streets with a group of weaponized androids in the aftermath of a previous conflict. Soon, Duo meets a concerned Detective Truco, and find themselves in an altercation with law enforcement. Afterwards, they interact with the public before having a surprising showdown with both Dr. Tinker and the Immutables.The Story: The penultimate chapter of this limited series is a high-octane adventure that not only showcases the extreme power of the Duo but delves into their humanitarian desires. It is also fascinating to see Kelly fulfill her greatest wish. Her need to help people is both heartwarming and frightening. Although it appears to come from good intentions, her method of wielding power is rightfully likened to playing God. And although I am not a fan of Dr. Tinker, I agree with his wariness of Duos abilities. F Read Full Review

    Pham's art is stylized, bordering on bizarre, while the introduction of multiple world-changing plot point makes for an odd, unfocused reading experience. Read Full Review
