This issue acknowledges what we suspected from earlier interactions – Ro has fallen in love with whatever the creepy entity thing is. Smart.
She’s also done a lot of painting, so I guess that’s a bonus. Except that the entity is the possessive, shitty, manipulative gaslighting type of partner who won’t let her leave the house.
Her agent Attison grows tired of her dodging questions and phone calls and heads to the house. The thing is not happy about anyone else being in ‘his’ house. Attison is happy about the amount of work Ro has done but can see there’s a problem. Ro finally admits that the creature won’t let her leave the house. The question is, will he let Attison leave?
This issue features a surprisingly real feeling portrayal of an emotionally abusive relationship for a comic about some unspecified supernatural creature, which makes it feel all the more unsettling.
One issue to go in this series, and it feels like an ‘everyone has a bad time’ ending is on its way.
