If anyone should know that things are not always what they seem, it is Travis Morgan and his companions. They have been through much and discovered more deception in their lives than most could ever think of doing. So it is that when assassins attack Morgan, he believes that they were sent by Machiste and when the same assassins attack Machiste, he in turn believes that they were sent by Morgan. Why the two of them think as such could be due to their emotions which are running hot at the moment as Machiste is still quite angry with his friend for making a play on his girl – despite the fact that Morgan was under a spell, and Morgan is frustrated because Tara has left and not returned after quite some time. Michael Fleisher piles the frustration onto the two men which is not something we usually see from the two and while doing so, ends up giving them another threat to deal with which just might, in the end, bring them back together. The more interesting plotline involves Tara whom we see joining Machiste in more ways than one, proclaiming that she has left Morgan, which again should have made Machiste think twice. Instead we learn that it is all a dastardly plot by Y’Smalla, the woman who has been vexing Tara ever since she was captured by Desaad. Fleisher does not stop there either as he gives us a little more action with Power Girl who is determined to learn all she can about Arion and her heritage which might not be as easy as she thought. With some really fantastic artwork from Ron Randall, the latest storyline continues to be quite enthralling and as to where it leads next is the big question to draw us back for more.
