I sort of forcing myself to get through this series at this point.

The writing style still doesn't work for me. I feel like we jump from plot to plot a little too quickyl for me to wrap my head around everything that's been happening, even with the wrap ups at the start of each issue.

I really love the art, though.

I think part of why I'm not so jazzed about this series is that I would love to see a more cohesive series that's similar to the format in other books. It's fine that this is different,

This was such an exciting issue that made me want to think about the implications of a police force that’s capable of overpowering America Chavez and the figure of “Dr. Brightly” as the figurehead of a white supremacist institution. Honestly, one of my favorites, they keep getting better and better!

So much political and racial commentary, I love it. Brightly is quite effective at getting America to get herself in trouble. I also love the art in this issue.
