Comments: The twin’s friends are being attacked by some mysterious force. The art perfectly shows off what is happening and the characters are well illustrated so you know they are teens at school. Yet the way they act the twins you can tell they have dealt with unexplained events before. The boys find themselves directly under attack and they formulate a plan.

Two or three Yokai or Kamaitachis a kind of animal that uses the wind to attack are attacking the twins Eli and Marty. This issue shows that one of the twins is the more intelligent and makes the plans while the other expects him to.

The three attackers are illustrated first as shadowy threats and then as cute furry animals.

Marty and Eli, we see interacting here. They do have powers and abilities yet they do not act like super-heroes. They do act as brave teens handling a unique situation that can and does put them in danger. These boys here you see a bond between them.

This is a great all-ages comic about heroes. They are just your average teenagers who happened to get superpowers.
