    The mystery of who killed Emma has some nice twists & turns, and I was left with the sense that my clever attempts at playing armchair detective were playing right into the hands of Grant Morrison. While I was able to figure out a possible motive, it would appear the entire situation involving Beak & Angel was a bit of a red herring, that was suppose to draw us away from the real suspects. Now, the murder mystery is somewhat undercut by a scene midway through the issue, where Emma looks to have returned from the dead, and as such finding out who killed her is now a bit of a nonstarter. Still, there is some fun to be had trying to piece together the puzzle before Grant Morrison turns over all the cards, and while the killer looks to be revealed in the final pages, there's still some very interesting questions left unanswered, such as who is the mystery shooter, and what's the deal with the cab arriving with no driver? All in all a very enjoyable issue, with some top notch art from Phil Read Full Review
