I wouldn’t say this episode does much to further the mysteries of the series so far. Like last week’s episode, this is tying together the plots and weaving it all together.

We start with Richard Horne paying a visit to Miriam, the school teacher who witnessed his hit-and-run. She stays inside her trailer home telling Richard she’s already told the police and has sent a letter to Sheriff Truman detailing her account of the event. Richard barges into her home and beats her mercilessly off camera. He leaves the trailer with the gas oven running and a candle lit. A quick call is made to Deputy Chad, who is working with Richard on the drug trade, and he’s told to intercept the mail at the Department.

jsaComics about youth are very popular at the moment. There are your old standards like Teen Titans and newer titles like Runaways, Generation X, Champions, and more. As a kid, I felt myself drawn more to the past titles and characters. I loved the books that introduced me characters that have been around for decades but never got the spotlight. It was no surprise that when I saw issue 2 of this short run on the racks at Kroger, I snatched it up without a second thought. Not until now have I been able to go back and re-read the all 10 issues of the run and fall back in love with these classic characters.
