Comments: This issue starts with the monster killers and monsters going hard at each other. The monster killers are it seems at times as bad as the monsters. They kill monsters yes and also innocents.
Both monsters and slayers are dark killers in the night. You would not want any of these nightmarish creatures or people in your life.
There is drama in this issue as the slayers discuss who deserves to be slayed. To protect a secret too many are killed.
There are a few surprises in this story. One Scarlet Mask has ambition and is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goals. Plus we get a mystery as a person shows up that is not identified.
Bait is a great character although he is taken advantage of. He could fight back but decides not to. He has mysteries about him and his attitude at times is weird. He is a strange boy yet he is likable.
The White Masks of which Bait is a part are shown here as uncaring about others. They care only about doing their jobs and that is slaying monsters.
It was nice to see several monsters fighting more than one White Mask. Bait though was the best of them all.
