Action is the name of the game as the book opens and it finds Donovan Flint and Doc Sellers in a small craft and taking on the Corporation it seems though not to good effect as they get themselves captured. While it does seem careless and all, it is just part of the plan as the two men need to get aboard Avernus, the ultimate prison from which there is no escape. It is here that the two men need to raise an army but to do so requires a bit of cooperation from a man named Emil Sturm and where first impressions are everything, Flint manages to make a bad one. Being in a prison is no easy thing, even if the Star Hunters do manage to have a couple of friends behind bars and while they have a plan that they think will work, they need Sturm to help enact it and from all accounts, that might be harder than they think. David Michelinie writes a good tale with this particular issue, one that finds the two members of the Sunrider on what seems an impossible mission and he makes it a lot of fun too as Flint and Sellers are in above their heads. Just when things look to be going right and the two are finally getting ahead, Sturm betrays them and Flint is left in a situation where the only outcome is death. With some great artwork courtesy of Rich Buckler and Tom Sutton, the book both looks great and gives readers a story that is the best of the series thus far. While it should not take five issues for a series to find its voice and give readers what they had been clamouring for since the first, the fact that it finally arrived is a good thing, though a little too late as this is the second-to-last issue that would ever see the light of day. Also in the issue is Darcy Vale doing what she can to move things along and it is good to see her finally on board, especially after all that has transpired previously. Six down and one to go.
