Review: Sist3rs Book 2
I recently wrote what some would coin a “love letter”. It’s something I haven’t done in a long time. When I was in high school it used to be so simple. Trying to catch someone’s attention was easy. Sometimes, rejection was part of the equation, a necessary but painful part of being a teenager. Getting your heart broken is only part of the equation, sometimes they feel the same way.
As you get older, the murkier the waters get, as professing your feelings to someone is not as easy. So, I wrote this letter in hopes of reciprocation but I have to accept if it is not the same for her. Geoff Thorne writes of a love in the second chapter to his webcomic, Sist3rs.
We find Ruul, sensing her husband may be in distress, walking through literal fire for him. As her husband faces a supernatural power, before Ruul and her husband understand what happening, they are changed by the deity. Both inheriting abilities only a God can bestow on a mortal being. By the issue’s end, Ruul and her husband’s love for each other are what overwhelms the deity and they absorb his powers.
Overall, an excellent second issue that gives perspective on how Ruul gained her powers. The story by Thorne is beguiling. The art by Thorne is elegant. Altogether, a story that illustrates the beauty of true love.
