It’s been seven months since the incident, and Sam Brausam is alive… if you can call it that. He’s barely learned to walk again, his spirit seems broken beyond repair, and the booze and pain pills aren’t doing his recovery any favors. His sister Dee-now eight months pregnant-and her boyfriend Mateo have moved into the old family home in order to help care for him. Meanwhile, the Blue Flame continues to build his case to defend humanity from extinction. But seven months into the discovery phase of the trial, the Tribunal Consensus is growing impatient.

I fully stand by the fact that this series is going to be worthy of awards and long-time appreciation. This issue has so much emotional impact, watching the characters struggle, watching Sam struggle to build his case for humanity, etc. It’s so, so good.

The art is gorgeous. Dark scenes in reality, and colorful gorgeous scenes as The Blue Flame. The colors are beautiful. The lettering is fantastic.
