It’s Judgement Day. And it all comes down to a fierce face-to-face confrontation that threatens the very foundation of the brutal Texas theocracy–and the lives of those who are courageous enough to oppose it. All eyes are on Camp Purity and it’s desperate battle for survival waged in the depths of hell.
While issue 3 is still my favorite of the bunch, the AT team cranked up to a level as of yet unseen in the series so far. If you haven’t read the previous installments, trust me, that’s saying something. Will Jen make it out of Camp Purity? Will The Witnesses be able to broadcast the truth about what is really happening within the walls of Camp Purity? Will the Frazier sisters finally be reunited? These questions I cannot answer here, but I can tell you one thing: We will get to see the extent to which numerous characters will go in order to do what they feel is right. I’m telling you, this is intense!
And as the intensity is dialed up, so to is the art. As a comic-book reader, there is little more gratifying than watching a series you are completely invested in start strong and just raise it’s own bar again and again. This is something that Mr. Douglas Brown seems to do every two issues. I’ll be keeping an eye out for more work from this man.
Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): There is only one more issue in this miniseries, and so far every issue has been remarkably jam packed. On top of that, the AT nearly never lets their foot off the gas, even during moments of exposition. And even on top of that, the series comes with a dangerous message of where we can potentially end up if if tolerance and open-mindedness don’t prevail. It comes highly recommended.
