Snyder shows us the true nature of one of the characters but it isn't something we haven't known since issue one. There's no turning back with this plot element that Snyder has thrown in and the lives of our favorite characters will never be the same after this story arc. That is, if they survive at all. Issue 31 isn't a complete letdown as Snyder has more surprises waiting for readers at the end of this story. This issue takes from deep underground VMS headquarters to the far off desert landscape of Los Angeles. It's another shocking plot reveal and will turn things upside down even more.
We've come full circle with the reunion of Pearl and Skinner, so maybe it's fitting and timely that Snyder introduces this new wrinkle and draws in again back to the early issues. Lastly, there's an interesting element that readers should take note of that goes beyond the usual amazing artistry of Rafael Albuquerque. That is, view each panel and setting carefully because the color work by Dave McCaig is simply remarkable and successfully conveys each scene as the story progresses. McCaig's work masterfully transports readers from one completely different place to another.
Final Verdict: B
