April 2017: "Freelance and Agents of PACT each come to an explosive conclusion!"

Chapterhouse released their April solicitations and, not particularly surprisingly, they remain Captain-free as Agents of P.A.C.T. shines a spotlight on some of his supporting cast.

I kind of dig Steeltown Hammer. He's a good addition to the cast that is not a reimagined version of a character from the original series. He's nowhere near as principled as the good Captain by any stretch but loyal and obedient and therefore the perfect right hand man to Michael Evans (pun intended, if you know Michael Evans at all). Mike Evans has a tendency to strain the bonds of loyalty though so we'll see how long that lasts.

We should now be starting to see signs of the next batch of Chapterverse books that had been promised this past summer, probably also in the form of 4-issue mini-series. I'm particularly eager to see a book about The Northern Light character from the 70s though at this point I don't know for certain if he's part of the upcoming bunch of releases. Last I saw him, he was meant to appear in a much-delayed anthology book called One Tribe.
