Grant and company are still stranded on the seemingly peaceful alien dimension and they are relatively safe. Except that they’re not. They never are.

As always, there is a race to be at the pillar on time. This pressure in the story ensures that the reader is anxious with the characters and that they are rapidly turning pages and sorely disappointed when they get to the last page. It’s never enough.

Something pretty cool happens though. We find out that Kadir and Grant were in college together. And even at that time they didn’t get along. Grant is all punked out and lets Kadir know just what he thinks about “ambition and politicking.”

The issue is called Lies, Lies, Lies. We see all kinds too. The ones that people knowingly make and the ones they don’t. Lies to yourself. Lies to make others feel safe. Appropriate title, don’t you think?

Some other major stuff happens in this one, but I just can’t tell you without ruining the fun. So go, buy this book, support these creators, and enjoy their world. It’s worth the money.

Verdict: 9/10
