My biggest issue with this issue is that Tommy gets shot badly at the end. I don’t like him dying as further motivation for Elisa. In general, I’m not a fan of the deaths of other characters being the motivation for fighting. Granted, usually it’s women: mothers, daughters, girlfriends, wives, etc. Sebla could be turning this trope on its head. We’ll see in the coming months.

I was, once again, excited by the possibility of what Ghost could do. About her ability to take on very human villains. I loved the women dressing up in white cloaks and similar outfits to her. And Elisa’s reaction to it was very much the way it should’ve been.

The new Chicago mayor, Ornelas, is definitely in over her head. She’s got too many villains in the city, and unsurprisingly, probably like a lot of politicians, she has no idea who’s been donating to her campaigns until those favors are called in.

Not shocking that Mr. Park is creepy. I do like that Sebela isn’t scared to have Ghost fight male villains.

Tommy’s death seems rather cheap, especially in light that this book is being canceled with the next issue. But maybe I just didn’t care enough about Tommy. He certainly served as the “heart” of the group, the Xander, the zeppo, as it were. Which made it really hard to care about his fate. (Thanks for that, Joss Whedon.)

Of course, Elisa is really the only fully fleshed out character in this book. That became super clear when Elisa was going through Tommy’s stuff and reflecting on all the things she never knew about him. Yeah, she didn’t know; but also, we the readers didn’t know either.

I do like that Elisa’s getting respect from the people with what she’s doing. Even if Mr. Park is out to get her and hurt her. Yeah, he’s lucky that he got away that night.

Elisa sleeping with Vaughan left me cold. Of course, he wants to talk about it like they have some relationship or that they might actually have a romantic relationship. Not when Caroline still harbors feelings for him and when he’s still a drunk.

I feel pretty bad for Sloane.

This book has a pretty unsatisfactory ending. In that Elisa resolves the same thing she resolved many issues ago: to keep fighting the good fight in order to bring hope into the world. Sure, the bad guys are going to keep rising up to replace each other, but she’s going to keep trying to make the world a better place.

Good resolution.

And Elisa’s going to keep an eye out for Tommy’s ghost. Because you never know.

And Vaughan is going to give up alcohol once and for all. Maybe.
