Dylan’s Stroy Thus Far

Dylan Siegel’s life has been anything but normal since the passing of his father Marcus Bell aka Rogue Sun. Being the heir to the mantle of a superhero changes a few things. With unexpected dangers, new adversaries and a new family dynamic unlike anyone else, Dylan has had an interesting start to his heroic career to say the least. And we haven’t even mentioned high school yet.

Dylan hasn’t been completely alone during this journey as he’s had astral mentors guiding him. The spirit of his late father and most recently Caleb Hawthorne, the KNIGHT SUN have been working on making Dylan the hero he potentially could be.

Last readers saw him, Dylan suffered an unexpected loss during a battle with Hellbent. One of his fellow classmates, Reggie, was killed standing up to the dangerous foe when Dylan was defeated. While distraught over the loss, Dylan turns control over his body to Caleb to finish the fight. When the battle has ended, Caleb surprises Dylan by maintaining control of his body, leaving Dylan as an astral spirit watching someone else control his physical body!

The Story Continues

The next phase of Rogue Sun begins at the Crescent City Medical Center. The medical team on duty is finishing autopsies and one deceased body stands out for a gruesome image. Suddenly, one gets sick out of nowhere. They set outside to get some air and when they return, the body is gone but something else is in its place hovering overhead.

Meanwhile, Dylan is self reflecting on the recent events. Watching someone else live his life has made a strong impact on his view of the world. Caleb (as Dylan) makes his way to breakfast with the Bell family and the change is noticeable. Readers even see how the family is welcoming it. All the while Dotty is meeting with some of the well known villains of Dylan in an attempt to rehabilitate them but a warning is passed along that Mourningstar is coming.

The change is noted by his fellow classmates, especially his ex-girlfriend Vanessa. As much as things change, some things remain the same as Rogue Sun runs into an old friend with some unfinished business.

Readers witness how the new dynamic between Dylan and Caleb plays out with another shocking twist to the story coming in the final moments. Get ready for another mic drop moment when the last page hits. This next phase of Dylan Siegel isn’t short of surprises.

STORY REVIEW

Parrott continues to push this story into compelling themes with this issue. Dylan is in uncharted territory watching someone live his life. The conversations and reactions of those around him is telling of what kind of person he was prior to the change.

There is an epiphany starting to take place that Parrott begins to lead the readers on. Losing abilities he took for granted, Dylan lashes out at the worst time to Caleb concerning.

Their relationship has deteriorated rapidly and justifiably. It challenges the motto of “with great power comes great responsibility”. One moment that really jumps out within these pages is a conversation with Dylan, Vanessa and Reggie’s mother. Parrott pens the scene with great care and drives home the impact of Reggie’s noble actions. Great final sequence to end this issue on and kick the next chapter off in style.

LET’S TALK INFERNO GIRL RED

Artwork Overview

Abel and Renna split the art duties for this issue. That is never a bad thing when you have 2 extremely talented artists such as them working on a story. The moment of the villains meeting with Dotty displayed as a pyramid of mirrors for a full page panel comes across as a huge event for the readers.

The emotional displays during the conversation about Reggie’s death hit very hard and add more weight to an already heavy moment. The action sequences complement the full page re-introduction of Dylan’s “Old Friend”. It’s fallout connects with readers sending them into the closing moments with a full page visual guaranteed to bring them back for more.

FINAL POINT: 9 OUT OF 10

The new stat quo of Dylan Siegel shows no sight of slowing down what has already become a must-have series on NCBD. Parrott’s method of mixing in emotional moments with shocking twists delivers on another fantastic issue with amazing visuals form Abel, Renna and the rest of the team. The Massive-Verse is back in full swing and you don’t want to miss it!
