Here we see what the Boy Scouts might become in a post-apocalyptic world. The Scouts here are the best fighters and they live by a code.

As Kit finds himself in the Badlands almost immediately she is attacked. The Hellspider is a hideous beast hellbent on Kit’s demise. Kit has lost the will to fight. She needs it to survive.

The art shows us a post-apocalyptic world filled with monsters and the people that have survived it. Kit is illustrated as a girl with a tough edge to her. You know right away she is a fighter. In this world, the Ranger Scouts are the best survivors and Kit is the or was the best Ranger Scout. She is a survivor.
The Scout Master is sexist he and others believe women should not be Scouts. Even though Kit has proven herself.
Kit vs Dez has these two protagonists going head to head. Dez is going all out while Kit still seems to be holding back.
As this comic ends, it does throw in some unexpected curves. The Scout Master was a backward-thinking man. He was stuck in the past not willing to move forward. Dez now does show his true colors here and it is good to see he is open to improving his way of thinking. The Scout Master Dez’s father is so closed off to any new ways.
It is great to watch Kit leading the attack for truth. She believes that people are what should be fought for now not the way of life but the actual living life.
This future world has fighters and it is great to see them not fighting each other but fighting for their future and the future of the planet.
