It looks like we’ll have to wait at least a month to find out what exactly has happened with Casey and Miss Hodge. In the latest issue we see the fallout from Hunter‘s blow-up with Zoe from her point of view, intermixed with the beginning of Woodrun, and odd flashbacks to Pilgrims torturing a man to get information out of girl who bears a resemblace to Jade in the year 1653.
In a nice move, writer Nick Spencer chooses to give Zoe a moment to actually feel the hurt of Hunter’s comments, and the overheard gossiping of the other girls before returning to full bitch mode and deciding on a slow revenge.
For an issue centered around arguably the series most unlikable character, this one turns out to be pretty good. I liked how the Pilgrim story eventually worked itself around to the main tale. We see a little of Woodrun from Zoe, Hunter and Jun‘s point of view but (not surprisingly) things turn ominous just as the comic comes to a close.
The mystery remains two-steps out of reach for the characters and audience alike, but I’m so enjoying the ride that (at least for now) I’m not too worried on the destination. Worth a look.
