Synopsis: Before Kate can fully wrap her head around the fact that her estranged sister Susan has reappeared (what?) and was the one who invited her to Resort Chapiteau in the first place (what?!) and that this case is definitely not going to allow much in the way of pool time (ughhh), she gets pulled into something she does know how to handle: a little girl staying at the resort has gone missing. But in spite of the fact that she’s basically an Avenger, the resort staff don’t want her investigating. So now Kate has three mysteries on her hands: Where is the girl, what is the resort hiding – and what does this have to do with her family in the first place?

 

The Story

Picking the story up from the last issue. Kate has responded to a call from her estranged sister who wants her to find a ring and investigate the strange goings-on at Resort Chapiteau. However, when one of the guest’s young daughters goes missing and is held for Ransom. It’s just another thing that Kate must add to her list. Furthermore, it seems that the young Avenger is being monitored by someone on the hotel grounds. Indeed, this person is testing Kate’s investigative skills to size her up.

Looking to cross one thing off the list. Kate sets out to find the young missing girl but winds up finding out a bit more than she bargained for.

 

Artwork

Enid Balám continues to provide some fantastic pages for this book. I particularly enjoyed one sequence in which we see this new version of Hawkeye uses a zip wire to get from one side of the complex to the other. I loved the overhead view of the complex.

We also get some nice sequences where we are watching events through the CTTV view that the book’s villain was using to monitor events.

 

Overall

A really enjoyable second issue, which moves the story along and leaves us with a nice cliffhanger.
