(See this post for something that I just realized about this series, but discussed there and will do no more than make a referral here....)
Hearing more Justice Party propaganda spewing forth from the radio, the main heroes still at Wentworth's home make plans and head out on separate missions. Richard Wentworth and Ram Singh head for Albany to investigate the governor's office. Britt Reid and Kato go to consult with a newspaperman friend of Britt's. “Spooky,” Wentworth's (?) name for the Shadow, heads out to “serv[e] justice.” Elsewhere, in hiding, Anthony Quinn discovers that he's blind. He and Rafael Vega recall previous vigilantes – the Clock and Zorro. Quinn utters the fateful words, “Blind as a bat...” Miss Fury and Green Lama fall into a trap laid by the Black Police, are taken, and discover that the many captives of the new regime are being railroaded out of the City. While Reid is fruitlessly trying to get some information out of his friend, Kato ends up in a fight, where he is joined by the Black Terror. Margo Lane and the Shadow interrogate a fat cat supporter of the Justice Party. And on the way to Albany, Wentworth and Ram Singh pass a concentration camp.
|Cover A (25%) by Alex Ross|
I am a bit disappointed I didn't get Cover A (25%) by Alex Ross, however. It's thumbnailed on the inside back cover, but luckily Dynamite's collections contain full-page “virgin art” versions of all covers, so I'll get the art there … eventually.
The last few pages contain a several-page preview of a new, original to comics Dresden Files miniseries. As much as I love that series, and even though this is at least plotted by Jim Butcher himself, I'm holding off for the collection. It looks good, even if I was sceptical regarding a pistol firing underwater. Apparently it can, however.
