Comments: Monica and her dad are having problems. He lost his wife recently and her mother. Both are suffering from it. Monica is taking it out on her dad. Yet both are so sad and heartbroken.
The art is somber as is the story.
The dad does have a good idea of getting chickens for their new country’s place of living.
In the country, Monica is out enjoying a nature walk. Something happens and she goes to her dad for help. At first, he is concerned as he should be then he is annoyed. He should have been more understanding of his daughter.
The emotional turmoil between father and daughter is well done. The creature attack is subdued but this is a comic geared more towards kids so that is expected.
This issue does set the story up and introduces the main characters and their situations. Monica is shown being too hard on her dad but her dad does not support her fully either so both are acting uncaring towards each other due to the mother/wife’s death.
This issue does lay the groundwork and gets you interested in what is to come.
