And in this issue it all comes to pass. Diane finds herself partnered with some sort of creature she can neither explain nor rationalize. What happened? When? What? So many questions need answering for her to come to terms with her actions that follow.
All this is told against flashbacks of J’onn’s life before Earth, when he was a peace officer on his home world with a wife and child. Orlando does very well in his world building, crafting a believable environment and culture for the so-called Martians.
