There is some real family tension going on here. And that is what makes this issue a well-rounded read. Kicking off the storyline with some action - albeit virtually, and adding to this family dynamic.
We learn a little more about what is going wrong within this unit - plus a little bit of the history.
The ending is interesting and throws something else out there for the next issue - and it was something that no one was expecting.
I like the way this issue moves. First, we have the brother and sister, trying to sort out their differences, and why things went so wrong. I like the way he's played out, and there is more sorrow there than anger.
Then the training and the daughter/father relationship is taught. We can understand why he being so harsh, but it seems he is going a little over the top - we also get a bit of an understanding why.
This is a good story and a lot of excellent scenes - artfully shown and coloured too.
