Synopsis :

As Azrael faces down the gathering mob he learns of Sandra's abduction. After revealing the identities of the men who had attempted to kidnap her the day before, Azrael discovered that they were holding her at the Zoo, and rescued her, when she asked him whether he was her guardian angel he replied yes.

Review :

Even though Nug was the brains of the outfit Kluber wasn't completely subjugated and voiced his opinion often. This shows that Denny doesn't just choose the easy way out and resort to the stereotyped controlling/submissive relationship but in fact scripts a set of characters where we see that they are more equal than anything else.

With less than spectacular art this issue the main point of interest is Lilhy's cold blooded choice to snub Nug's ransom demands without allowing any one to know that they had contacted her. Is this a reflection of her earlier character, a scheming and ruthless one?

Rant :

Azrael finally talks and so ends Azrael's first story arc after one year. We've seen Azrael go from homeless anti hero to a fully realized person. Azrael has a more thorough origin and Denny continues to present us with questions that hopefully will be answered in future.
