Here’s the thing, folks. We can’t tell you what happens in this issue because it would give away the big frightening thing that happened in the previous issue (which we also didn’t tell you about). So, what can we say? Only the most general stuff. Like that the grim fallout from winning the war so easily continues. And the metaphorical chickens come home to roost. Good, right?
