Review: Kahlil #6
Grief is such an arduous process that most of us react in different ways to loss. There is no other type of pain which haunts you for days and, months and years on end. Depending on the type of relationship that person had with you, determines the degree of sorrow. It seems at times, like the hurt will never go away, as your heart blubbers with anguish.
This where those “shared experiences” come into play and knowing someone who has been through it, makes all the difference in the world. If no one has been there before, in that same situation, they will never understand what you are going through. This is when you realize it will get easier with time, but you will never forget and always remember. In this issue of Kahlil, his friend, Qays is still dealing with the death of his brother, from the last issue.
We find Kahlil trying to understand the process of grief and how it affects those around him. He soon finds out that the bomb threat in Karachi, has a widespread effect on schools, as they conduct bomb threat drills, where they are on automatic lockdown, every day, because of what happened. The terrorists soon find out who what superpowers Kahlil possess. By issue’s end, a calculated move by our villains, may be the chess move they need to get their way.
Overall, another interesting mix of humor and depth, in a world where both are equals. The story by Rizvi starts to show signs of a building climax. The art by Rizvi as always radiant. Altogether, another solid installment in a riveting series.
