Jaime Reyes was trying to save his best friend Paco when an alien weapon attached itself to his spine. Now, if he wants to live to see tomorrow, Jaime must defeat a team of Super-Villains who want the weapon for more nefarious purposes.

Jaime is just trying to figure out what happened to him when Khaji-Da fused to his body, but he manages to get Paco to the party they were originally heading. Jaime tries to explain himself but Khaji-Da puts such a force on his body is causes him to vomit and then flee.

Meanwhile in space a ship of the Reach spots the signal fro Khaji-Da and Khaji-Kai insists on investigating the mystery. This is going to be more trouble for Jamie as the ship heads toward earth. There is also a Batman teaser at the end of this issue

Ig Guara: Newest Member of My Favorite Artists 0

The Good: Ig Guara does some superb art. He hasn't done much, but he's rising really quickly to my favorite artists list, and he's on his A game here. Everything just looks perfect, and fitting.
