we are given a look back at how Caleb and Anna Belle first got together. It was not pretty.
The black and white art throughout this comic is perfect for the rough setting in this future post-apocalyptic world.
What would you do to protect your family? Here Caleb finds out and he does it. This story is powerful in showing the love a father has for his children. Any father would be able to sympathize with Caleb. The characters here all have powerful emotions that we see brought out.
