Review: ★★★★

Vita and Charlie’s relationship has heated up to a more personal level. The intense situations have caused the pair to become more physical. The two are currently trapped within an old rocket silo with a bunch of peace loving hippies that want to claim the Reaper on Charlie. The concept is still laughable that you can pay to have someone killed. People also get add to the bounty the longer it lasts.  It stands to question our use of social media which can, in some circumstances, be used to kill someone’s social image. This issue tends to deal with a more interesting…What if? Our pair starts to question whether they would actually hook up without the death mark on Charlie. For the most part we didn’t really know Charlie was into the ladies, so the concept is a good question. They are different people, which has been seen through out this entire series. The last couple issues felt like Sebela and Stein were just stuck with Vita and Charlie fighting and then making up. This issue gives us a nice cliffhanger to look forward toward. It shows us how much Vita cares for DOG and what Charlie is willing to do to prove a point. It’s and old quote from Star Wars that comes to mind here, “Either I’m beginning to like her or I’m gonna kill her.” This could be the next plot for issue #13. I can’t wait to see what our creators come up with next.

Pick up this book at your local comic shop if your able.
