What the hell just happened? Such random events. What a weird ending. This issue seems so rushed. Even the artwork on some panels look a bit rough. What a shame.

The line work is really tight and very detailed. It's a joy to look at. The colour more

She's not feeling the greatest, and already peeps up in her grill; IRL and in the story. It's funny you people and your salty 1 reviews, lol. The new outfit is nice, simple yet chic.

This story arc is like a side quest while HW2 continues. However it is still a great arc with a hell of a lot of action. I quite enjoyed this and based on the preview page the next issue looks to be even better.
The artwork in this issue is great. So rich and diverse. I enjoyed the 2 page spread from the poet - looks really good.
