This series is truly a hit. This is the final issue and it wraps up the horror that these two protagonists have been put through as a result of their “direct” approach to activism.
They have been held captive by a bunch of Animal Cruelty poster children and these villains have proved that they can be just as cruel to people, but they are about to find out that these ladies are not to be threatened.
Much like the first issue, this one jumps from the present to the past as it shows that these girls, Jeanette and Sarah, are experienced in what they have been doing. But they have never been in such a dangerous situation, one in which their lives truly are on the line.
Critical Hit proves to be a dark read that that is written at such a quick pace that you the reader get a bit of an adrenaline rush. It grabs you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat as it is filled with moments of extreme tension in which the characters have to question their very own morals.
The art is great. The backgrounds are kept dark so the reader can feel that these protagonists are in a real bad situation. There seems to be no light at the end of this tunnel and the colour choices really lend to this feeling. The flashbacks introduce a little bit of more colours to the story making it easy for the reader to distinguish what is the past and what is the present. The level of detail placed into each character is great, emotions are toyed with in this issue and the illustrations do a great job of displaying exactly this. Faces are highly detailed and this makes it easy to follow.
This is a great issue, my favorite in this series. It is just a pity that this arc is over and who knows what will come next. Hopefully something will. It is good to see heroes fighting for a worthy cause as they take it upon themselves to protect those who cannot protect themselves.
