Raven is struggling with her new life among “normal” people. Her aunt and uncle have invited her to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, and despite being fathered by the demonic Trigon, she’s agreed to go. Meanwhile, one of her friends is suffering the latest in a series of parental losses. Raven’s empathic abilities could ease her grief, but Raven recognizes that would be offering her a temporary crutch.

 

Meanwhile, Azure – a girl with kaleidoscope eyes – continues to be uppermost in Raven’s mind. Is she friend or foe? Is she victim or challenger? And how does she seem to know exactly which psychological buttons to push? And what does 2MorrowsTech have to with it all? Even as she ponders her dilemma, Baron Winters continues to scheme.

 

So far, the story is shaping up nicely, a mix of supernatural and techno-espionage, as government commandos are clearly ill-suited to deal with other-worldly entities. But that may change, depending on the secrets that lie behind 2MorrowsTech.

 

The combined talents of Pop Mhan and Lovern Kindzierski are perfectly suited for the material – it’s moody and spooky, with enough detail to convey the visual equivalent of techno-babble. Though it’s a 12-issue limited series, I do hope they’ve made the commitment for all 12, rather than replaced after a handful of issues.

 

Rating: 7/10
