"The Plague Widow" part 4 of 8. As temperatures plummet and both fuel and food start to dwindle, some of the townspeople start to panic. Gunborg seizes on this to organize an expedition outside the sealed city in order to forage. But considering the plague, he seems too eager to take that risk. And as Hilda finds out herself, one doesn't have to travel far for danger to find them.

    The story and art in The Plague Widow continue to deliver a solid and engaging story. The constant war of words between Boris and Gunborg is wearing thin though and the conflict (which has been looming since the first chapter) between the two needs to come to a head. It should prove to in the next few chapters, and the event should be worth the buildup. Read Full Review
