In Descendent #4, Stephanie Phillips and Evgeniy Bornyakov continue this deep dive into the past–both the past between their characters and the history of the ancient cults they’re investigating.
The book is out tomorrow from AfterShock Comics, and it continues this excellent story that is built upon realistic character dynamics and an intriguing core mystery. In this issue, David and Amanda must race to stop the cult at the heart of it all from taking another child. Meanwhile, ugly truths from their own past get rehashed. It’s that dichotomy of problems both personal and epic that make this book so interesting.
