Synopsis: CAPTAIN CARTER ON THE RUN! Peggy and her dwindling list of allies just became prime targets for a sinister group operating at the highest levels of British society. Before she was Captain Carter, Peggy was Agent Carter…but can she rely on decades-old spy training to keep her alive in the modern world?
Picking up from where the last issue left off. Peggy and Tony Stark are in a fight for their lives as they try and catch up with the mystery woman that has set a bunch of killer thugs on them. However, we soon learn that Peggy and Tony’s attackers are in fact robots. Realizing that they are in a losing battle. Peggy and Tony make a hasty escape and check on any progress that Lizzie and Harley have made in their deep dive into the Prime Minister.
In a nutshell. Harley has figured out that their Prime Minister is not who he appears to be. But in fact, is something far more dangerous than they initially believed. It would seem that this conspiracy has fangs. As Peggy and her team begin to get some interesting leads. The Prime Minister puts a call out to the authorities to hunt down and capture Peggy Carter. He accuses her of murdering 15 of his men in cold blood. Now Peggy and her team must use more covert means to continue their investigation. But how much can Peggy and her friends find out while on the run?
Marika Cresta has a lot of stuff to play around with in this issue. As with the last issue. The action beats are really well drawn, but it is the smaller details in this issue that really stand out. For example, I loved the old photographs that Harley finds in her web search, which reveal the true identity of the Prime Minister and the mystery woman. The final page where we see Peggy being taken away looks real sinister. I loved it.
Obviously, we’ve seen a lot of conspiracy stories in recent years as it seems very much like life is often imitating art. But this particular story is made much more interesting because of the out-of-time element. It’s fun to see Peggy’s reaction to how life is much different now from how it was back in the 1930s. Yet also fun to see her slowly realize that however much has changed. Some things have remained the same.
Overall. This is a really fun story and am looking forward to reading the final issue next month when it gets released.
