This issue of UNFOLLOW focuses on one character, the man who calls himself Deacon of the Lord. He’s currently wounded and in a hospital bed on the island of Ferrell, the billionaire whose fortune he and 137 others are due to inherit…or however many of them survive. There were 140 to start with.
Deacon is remembering earlier times when the Lord first spoke to him, and told him to take vengeance on some bikers who were mistreating a couple of teenagers they’d kidnapped. That didn’t go so well for him. Here on the island, he’s accosted by the masked man who has already shown he’s very violent, too. Deacon is in no position to protect himself. The doctor who helped Deacon is still here, though most of the 138 have left. Now he decides to flee by plane with Deacon. The masked man may have other ideas.
This storyline has turned more violent more quickly than I expected, but is still gripping and well written by Rob Williams and well illustrated by R. M. Guéra. The insight into Deacon is unexpected but fascinating.
