This is something of a breather issue as we come down from the whirlwind that was X Of Swords. Wind Dancer gets resurrected, and we find out exactly why she wanted to die…it was the only way to escape the Mojoverse. Williams is doing a great job of making Mojo and the Mojoverse feel genuinely threatening in a way that it really hasn’t in a very long time.

We also get a moment with Emma, mourning the loss of Santo, which was very well done.

I’d like to take a moment to single out the “Why didn’t you just leave?” text section. Which is both powerful and incredibly well written. I don’t know if it’s going to be relevant to the plot, and that almost doesn’t matter, but it’s a brilliant glimpse into an abusive relationship and I really hope that it helps some of the people that read it.
