Dante, a low level dealer of the drug Ash, works for the Winters family, or should I say worked. He took a bad batch, and now he’s dead. Now Grace, Brae, and the rest of the Winters have to deal with the fallout all while protecting their business from the vultures that keep circling trying to take what they have worked so hard to build.
Cullen Bunn weaves a very interesting and intriguing story in this issue. We get to see glimpses of members of the family before the death of patriarch Andre. We see how past events have shaped and molded them into the characters we see before us. This issue was a good character building issue mixed with just the right amount of continuation of the story from issue one that it doesn’t confuse the reader in any way and keeps the flow the story moving all throughout the book. There’s very little supernatural elements in this book and is there not a great amount of violence, but what we are left with is a great amount of intrigue as we dive deeper into the lives of this family.
The art and colors are beautifully done in this book and once again, like it did in issue 1, they both shine greatly on their own while not overpowering the other. Scharf does excellent work breathing life into the features of the characters, and Guimaraes uses the right amount of color to truly enhance all the characters as well as the backgrounds to really set a great tone and mood for the story.
Secrets are starting to be revealed about this Winters family, and how they will do whatever it takes to protect their empire. All I’m saying is let’s strap in and enjoy the ride.
