Just barely but once again standing on his own two feet, Sam is cleaning up his act, looking for work and a place to live.
But he can't stop thinking about the shooter, the 19-year-old who murdered his four friends and twenty others. Neither can the Blue Flame, who decides to try something different in court after his failure to find any divine cosmic help for humanity's defense. As Sam digs deeper into the past of his would-be killer, the Blue Flame discoveres a way to call the deceased shooter as an unexpected witness.

    There's a lot going on here but it doesn't feel like it's trying to cram things in before it concludes in the next issue. But it also doesn't feel like it has a strong way to stick the landing just yet as we get a decent bit of information without it feeling pivotal in a way. There are a lot of questions to be answered as we go into it and I know the gaps between issues have made the series less compelling overall. But that sense is definitely there as we get closer to the end that those that go into this as a full collection are going to have a fantastic ride. It's been a strong series so far and I'm excited to see how the revelations here unfold more in the finale. Read Full Review

    This has taken a very different path than I expected it would in some ways, but the destination seems to be the same. Regardless, this is a strong issue, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this all concludes. This is a greta indie book and its touching on a lot of sentiments people are feeling, but it looks at it through a fascinating lens. This is mostly s transitional issue but the dialogue and art is still great and you can feel the weight if the situation on Sam.
