Young Liars #10

by David Lapham

The Young Liars takes another jump back in time this issue, as we look into Big C's past, and get to see the group back when things were normal, and they were a strong group of friends who supported each other.

Which, of course, is completely not what happens. Instead, CeeCee gets pregnant and miscarriages, and the rest of the crew argues, fights, and stabs each other in the back, showing that even before Sadie got shot in the head, Runco got decapitated, and Danny got his Mr. Johnson cut off, this group of friends did not get along.

As usual, Lapham's story is gripping and his art is fantastic. I think it's strange, after the ending of the last issue, that he chose to tell a flashback story that has no bearing on where things got left in #9, but at the same time, I trust that he has a master plan in place for this series, and I'm happy to be along for the ride.
