If you remember, our story focused on the Noa character and the mysteries of her healing powers. Sundra is a planet rich with many religions that co-habituate all together. With that comes multiple social classes that are all trying to get a leg up on each other. I admit, I’m taken in by the lush and colorful artwork. It’s a book I wish I had read from the beginning. Without all the huge backstory the comic is a bit confusing. Noa has a greater purpose that is tied directly to their god AGAPE. The story makes itself clear, but avoids answering some questions that the reader might still be scratching their heads about. It comes across as a dream sequence that puts Noa on her path. This issue also gives us more depth about the local culture including a circus situation that is the stuff of legend. It brings more light to some of the secondary characters. Once again almost every panel of the book is eye candy that one could easily frame for a museum. I just hope the plot becomes more clear in the future issues.
