Artwork is once again very complimentary to the mood and setting. In this issue artist Lee Carter really got to play with many striking visuals with some great suspenseful storytelling.
A gorgeous moment graces this month’s cover and makes Sunflower #5 a standout issue.
After the shocking violence at the conclusion of our fourth issue, CJ wanders alone in no man’s land of the desert hell she’s trapped, battered and beaten, searching for the commune – and the daughter – she knows is there. Falling in and out of consciousness. CJ begins to realize Rush Bridge is not the only evil she must confront. Here, in the secret-riddled forest, CJ confronts the darkness that lives inside each of us, viciously grasping for any souls willing to let it in. Is there anywhere left for CJ to run when you’re running from yourself?
