Great art but I feel mislead concerning the story. We were told originally that one person died and Harley and booster were the main suspects. Now it’s about 20 people that died and it seems really unlikely it was one of them. Love the book tho hope it picks up more. Didn’t care for the full pages they wasted on the sanctuary interviews.
