This issue spends much-needed time showing us the development and eventual end of Matt and Robert’s friendship; however, I would have liked to see what drove Robert to embrace his religious conversion. (Perhaps in the next issue?) I’m also not sure why we’re spending so much time with Sean and his family other than to reinforce the Christian themes which resonate throughout the series. A personal quibble is I would have liked to see a simple caption in the flashbacks so as not to disrupt the flow of reading. It certainly isn’t a big deal, but I did bump on it trying to figure out where I was in the story. If there was a change in color palette to denote a flashback, I didn’t pick up on it.
Overall, I find the characters to be engaging, and I’m really enjoying the series. I can’t wait to see how it ends.
