If you’ve been reading the Chronicles of Fortune, you’ll have noticed a persistant leak in Edith May’s apartment. In this issue the drip drip drip comes to a head when Fortuna is encouraged by Shirley MacLaine on the radio to confront the dripping head-on. MacLaine suggests that perhaps the building is crying. Something is crying, but what could it be?!
This issue is a great reward for those of us who follow the Chronicles of Fortune. A long-existing problem is revealed, and there are a few other moments that reveal there is continuity in this world, and that past issues affect future ones. The Chronicles up until now seemed a little episodic, but this reveals the series is a serial. And like her story telling and art, Coco reveals she’s structured it using her unique voice!
