Stray Bullets 14 (August 1997)

Stray Bullets #14A lot of stuff comes to a head this issue, which is double-sized, and even has some backstory on how the characters ended up in Seaside. Maybe it was during that first party issue. At least it seems to be the result of it. I think. If it’s so important, Lapham should have included CliffsNotes.

Otherwise, besides the issue being way too full, it’s pretty good. It’s definitely exciting as about half of it is a chase sequence. Orson, the current male lead, is on the run from the bad guys from the early issues. Beth and Virginia don’t get much to do. Too bad as they’re the best characters. Except Lapham does give Rose a lot for her cameo, revealing far more depth than expected.

The Seaside supporting cast figures in a lot, not very well. They’re backseat to the returning guest stars.

Rushed art too.

But okay.
