In addition to the story for Trista & Holt, pay particular attention to the artwork. As I’ve discussed before, it uses creator Andrez Bergen’s signature style, created by taking and manipulating a series of unrelated images and assembling them into a single, cohesive story. That being the case, throughout this comic, you get a number of fun celebrity cameos and other little Easter eggs.
This issue begins with a telegram, inviting Issy Holt, one of our protagonists, to the funeral of his friend, Lou, who was killed a couple of issues back. Lou was an underling, and most of the people there are simply paying obligatory lip service or trying to serve their own ends. Issy is the only one who cares about Lou and his life.
Meanwhile, Trista, our other protagonist, is tracking Moore Holt, the enforcer of the Holt crime family—and finds that maybe that wasn’t such a good idea after all.
This seems like a rather short issue, but I guess they’re all that length. Just as we’re getting to the good stuff, the issue is over, and we have to wait until next month to continue which, of course, we will, because we’re anxious to see what happens next. At any rate, Trista & Holt has captured my interest, and Issue #5 is definitely worth reading.
