The story picks up with Gabby and the Doctor searching for a way to end the war between the different clans. But as the pair become separated each frantically works to save Munmeth and his people from a terrible fate. As the pace increases the Doctor begins to notice some clues in this strange world – perhaps what he is seeing is not quite right – and he is anxious to stop the battles around him.

Battle does ensue but not quite how the Doctor had anticipated. The Doctor and Munmeth then begin an adventure of their own, just as Gabby meets a new group fighting the threat known as the Sky Hunters.

Events finally bring the Doctor to a startling revelation. Forcing the two stories together in a fateful meeting. The last, quiet words of one are haunting…

But it not just Gabby and the Doctor that have their hands full, back in NYC Cindy discovers an alarming secret and in deep space, Anubis grows impatient!

Writer Nick Abadzis does a beautiful job with this issue crafting a storyline which shifts cleanly between Munmeth of the Tree Wolf Clan and Gabby. While the artwork from Elena Casagrande is both sharp and bold with the Doctor’s brainy specs making an appearance. The lettering is notable, with a distinctive and very effective look to Munmeth’s narration.

There are three very different covers available for this issue.
