A Distant Soil, Volume 3: The Aria based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Continuing an ongoing series, this third volume marches on from where the old WaRP comics left off. Beginning with a showdown between this psychically conditioned and paranormally endowed assassin, similarly endowed assassinee, and unexpectedly present sister. She has come to appreciate the victim and his plotting, so between the pet hamsters, lover-boy bodyguard and stern chief of security, it all settles down into a state of confusion. Nobody gets fried, nobody gets disrupted; but one of the hamsters does get a nice juicy bite out of the assassin's forepaw. But this is only the beginning; the hierarchy shows up, provoking another confrontation with its concomitant conversation and historical vignettes. Finally they go away, but the turmoil is still far from over. Plans for disabling the hierarchy are set in motion albeit not without the hierarchy realizing that their trusted and admired figurehead has been a prime mover behind this resistance and summarily taking action to remove him. In the processs another dramatic paranormal conflict is unleashed with uncertain consequences that will leave the readers confused and ensure that the series will have to continue for a while longer. Meanwhile the author-illustrator leaves us with a wonderful mystery. Who uprooted the little bonsai tree? It was done by a left hand, but the person standing closest already had an implement in her left hand. Was she rejecting her failed trainee, or was he rejecting his perverted training?
