** spoiler alert ** Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 7 by Hiromu Arakawa turns up the heat with revelations with how corrupt the military government is and how deep the homunculi have penetrated into things. There is more time spent with Ed and Al's sensei and there's trouble afoot in Dublith.

Usually in these sorts of stories, this level of big reveal comes before a final act where the good guys rally to vanquish the evil and remove the corruption. Arakawa though choses to make the reveal at the end of the first act giving more time for the heros to come to terms with the situation and to plan for a way to root out all the corruption.

After all the excitement there's a humorous after story, a date involving 2nd Lt. Jean Havoc (a man always looking for love) and Catherine Elle Armstrong. This date showed up in the anime as well and is just as hilarious in print as it is fully animated. While this date seems like a throw away story, it is referred to later in the series. Arakawa doesn't toss things out there willy-nilly.
