Despite there being no Johnny Blaze in this month’s issue, this was still damn good, and sheds some much-needed light on Alejandra as a character, because at this stage she’s still pretty much a blank slate. The detail of her being an orphan and how this motivated her to save the other orphans was strong stuff, and then when the mysterious ‘Jones’ was her father, it was a nice twist. I also dig the running battle in her head between her own conscience and what the demon Zarathos wants. That will be interesting going forward. The artwork from Lee Garbett was very strong too, he’s a very underrated artist in my eyes and I’d love to see him on this book permanently. This issue could probably have done with a bit more of the humour of the first arc, but it was still good all the same, and some stories do need to be serious.
