Review:  ★★★☆☆

After Mr. Glum’s big escape last issue and kidnapping of Angel, you would think that would be enough for this issue to follow.  Larsen of course adds in plenty more.  On the kidnapping side, Glum goes full on creepy as he dresses Angel up to look identical to “his” Angel as he tries to convince her they were meant for each other.  It definitely is strange, but Glum actually has some compelling reasons for Angel to stay with him, at least for the moment.  It certainly serves as the best part of the story.  The other shocking, and disappointing, turn of events from the issue find the original Dragon being released from prison.  I say disappointing because the entire thing is out of left field and done so hastily.  It’s a fairly big event which happens from start to finish within a few pages.  There’s nothing that can change that now, but as long as Larsen takes time to explore Dragon trying to readjust to life after prison this can still turn into a great story.
