Plutona #3

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Plutona. Emi Lennox's art work and story contributions make my heart melt. I just wanna hug the pages but of course... I don't want to crinkle them. (Plus I read this via an advanced digital copy from Image so hugging the computer it just likely to hurt me.)

The major plot point of course is that a group of adolescents have stumbled on the body of famous super hero Plutona. They have told no one and intend to bury her. That really isn't the focus of the story. The real focus resides in the social interaction of our scheming pre-teens. I love the back and forth in this issue. The death of hero Plutona brought them together and caused a slight rift in their social circle as Mei begins texting resident bully Ray and defending her best friend Diane a whole lot less. Perhaps she falls into the background as adolescent hormones casually descend but Diane is not at all happy and completely aware of her friends favor falling toward Ray.

While previous issues focused on the home life of the young group, this focus is on the children and their quietly forming alliances. My only complaint about this issue is that it is not longer. I really can't wait to read the rest of the story. So much love.
