This volume contains two stories. The first is a whodunit, or maybe a whatdunit, similar to the snowplough incident of volume one and the second is a rather surprising family story with a dramatic revelation about Mitchell’s parents. This is the superior tale and shows just how masterfully Vaughn can instil emotion in his readers.
The art is good and seems to be getting a bit more time or polish, or maybe Harris is finding his groove with these characters. There is an interesting visit to a comic shop that seems to be populated by the works of just one man.
A gentler piece but still a fine Thumbs Up!
