Now I’m confused. Not because I don’t remember this issue from the last time I read it, but because Dysart’s finally revealing little glimpses at the secret behind the “voice.”
Something happened to the good doctor, letting him become the killing machine… and the Unknown Soldier has something to do with it. Not the Unknown Soldier of this series, but the overall Unknown Soldier. I think Ennis dealt with him as a force of nature too.
But it’s also the issue where the one secret–the good doctor being a killing machine–is revealed to his wife. So he doesn’t have a secret identity.
Also, the stuff about Moses–that’s the protagonist–hurrying into marrying his wife after dumping his med school girlfriend… that was great, particularly because Dysart doesn’t given enough information to really form an opinion. It just seems a little suspicious.
And then a great cliffhanger here.
