Deathlocket heavy issue. After the second death (which is shown in the preview) Rebecca gets her origin told in flashbacks. She then hooks up with the Braddock Academy kids. As they sit around the fire Apex gives Rebecca a short introduction to each of them. Bloodstone and Anachronism are my favourites. Anachronism inherited the body of an immortal celtic warlord six months ago but "still has the self confidence of a chubby video gamer stuffed down in a bag of crisps" (Crisps not chips - nice attention to British detail). Kid Briton and Nara are the other 2 BA students.
Apart from that only Cami really appears, Hazmat has a short scene at the beginning being a bit of a bitch.
The characters are great, the art is spectacular and I'm keen to find out what happens next. No new info on Arcade's plan in this issue, also nothing to suggest that it is a virtual reality either. I guess we'll have to keep reading.
