And Then I Read: UNFOLLOW #12

I haven’t read one of these in a while, and find I’ve lost track of some characters, but the main plot line is clear: a billionaire has given a huge fortune to a collective of 140 people. It’s a tontine, so as members of the group die, there’s more for the survivors. We’re well into the middle game now, where aggressive group members are killing off other less aggressive or less prudent ones. As this issue opens, we are down to 129 survivors, and that number will shrink drastically by issue’s end. Motives for the scheme as a whole are scarce, we don’t know much. A new motivator for the shape of the scheme emerges this time, but does it really matter? Lots of blood and violence. Not really my kind of fun. I find there’s no one in the issue I’m rooting for, and quite a few I don’t feel any connection to at all. I may look at future issues, but I didn’t enjoy this one very much.

Barely recommended.
