The girl’s name is Becky. It’s mentioned twice this issue, so maybe I’m not the only one who was confused.
This issue is Bunn’s take an all action issue. There’s the main event, the bad guys against this huge, electrically charge bird monster. But Drake and his sidekick–who definitely has a name, but I’m not aware of it–have to get to the fight, which brings in some backstory. And then there’s the girl–sorry, Becky–getting to the fight too.
Some great artwork here. Hurtt’s not a guy you really except to do heart-stopping visuals–I love him, but he doesn’t tend to do the stupendous visuals. Well, except here, of course–he’s got this panel of the giant bird monster’s wings peeking out of a canyon and it’s just incredible.
The series just keeps getting better.
Bunn’s inventiveness in a presumably tried genre is constant pleasure.
