Oliver and Shado try to escape from a whole nation.

Count Vertigo will do everything in his power to stop them. His and Shado's connection to The Outsiders will be explained and Ollie's new mission to gain enlightenment will be set. However, on his search for the secrets of his father, he has put aside Seattle not knowing that one of The Outsiders is about to take control of it... Richard Dragon has arrived.

Is it possible to keep improving the quality of a title by each issue? Lemire and Sorrentino demonstrate it, this issue is probably the best one yet and I know that I've been repeating this for a while. Lemire's retelling of Shado's origin and connecting it to Ollie's father and The Outsiders is brilliant, not to mention that he has a great ability to start dropping little hints about the world around GA and how this will certainly be used on the future.

He also deserves credit for presenting different sub-plots besides of the main story. Oliver/Naomi/Fyff's love triangle, Emiko and the gang battle for Seattle and one that obviously not going to end well after Richard Dragon enters. Sorrentino deserves half of the credit for how impressive this book is. We know that his art is really distinctive and beautiful but is also quite experimental too. The pages telling Shado's origin was incredibly detailed and wonderful.

Few times I have seen a series where both writer and artist contribute equally to its greatness but fortunately this is one of those rare cases.
Pick of the week once again.
