Julie is still running for her life and news of the crater has hit the public. Everyone is scrambling to resolve this mess, only it keeps getting worse.

It’s been so long since I read the last issue of this book, and this one sucked me right back in. A lot happened in this book. Events were all over the place and frantic and simply awesome. I have no idea how Julie is going to get out of this.I have this feeling I have said that a lot throughout the story. I was really hoping she’d go with Ivy, but events didn’t turn out that way.

The high point for me was when the man went to Henri to claim some bodies, angry and hurt, its obvious he isn’t leaving without them. The book has handled HENRI and the leaking of information rather well. That was some good fallout and I really wonder if fists fly in the next issue regarding him.

The writing again is really awesome, along with the clean line art. The emotions of the characters come across really well, and with everything that happened this issue, I do get the sense of freneticism. Everyone’s time is running out and the proverbial crap storm has been consistently getting worse. Julie’s behavior does frustrate me, but I’m not too sure I’d act any differently if I had weird metal stuff slowly taking over my body.

I look forward to reading more of this. I hope it is sooner, rather than later, as it really is a good story and I have been greatly enjoying it so far.

Everything: Terry Moore

After the run in with the crazy old man, Julie struggles to help Dillon and get on their way back to Henri while Ivy deals with the aftermath, tracks them down, and still struggles to get them to accept her aid.

And Julie has more of the alloy.

This issue read way to quickly. I think I need at least ten more pages each issue.

I absolutely love this cover. I need a poster of this to go right next to my Darkminds one, or behind the door to the computer room. This is an awesome image.

I’m at a loss of words to say how excellent this series is. Terry Moore is an excellent artist and writer, and this is such an interesting story. I can’t even begin to guess what will happen next. The thoughts and ideas I get sometimes make my brain want to implode. Will Julie get all of the alloy? Will she ever get it off? What exactly is going on with Annie and her deadness still having a voice? Just what exactly is the suit and what was the purpose of it’s creation?

Each issue is better than the last and I can’t wait for more. I can’t wait to see how this all ends.

Ah, behold the old man and his alloyed hand looking all crazed and not-so-hobo like standing over all those skulls. The wonderful covers that Terry’s given us almost make me wish the interior was also coloured.

I’ve been in love with this story from the beginning and it has only gotten better and better as it’s progressed, and boy is that old man violent. I’d really like to know what his problem is.

Moving on to the story, things are certainly heating up for Julie and Dillon, there’s still a lot of questions, tension, frustration and anger with some very good dialogue. Dillon get’s a vision of Annie, and we get a major confrontation between the crazy old man and Julie that leaves us with one helluva cliffhanger and another long wait for more.

This issue came and gone with a snap. I couldn’t believe I so quickly reached the end of the issue pining for more, just a few more pages, please? But what a good ride it’s been so far. There’s been some excellent character development and gripping drama. This is easily creeping it’s way onto my all-time favorites list and gunning for a high position.

Seriously, if you haven’t read Echo, you should.
