What Sela doesn’t know is that Koschei is in the service of the Dark Queen, and it is all a setup to get Sela and Baba Yaga to destroy each other. They figure it out pretty quick and Koschei reveals his true nature, bringing an army of the dead with him.
What Koschei doesn’t know is that he was also setup by the Dark Queen. Her true goal is to capture Gina to use her against Helios and gain control of him and his power. She sends the Winter Witch to pull a frozen Han Solo move on her.
The series continues to build towards issue #100, and the Age of Darkness comes ever closer. Baba Yaga now knows that her second sight isn’t gone, it’s just showing her the future, and the future is darkness.
A good story with plots within plots, a battle with an army of the dead, and some Sela vs Baba Yaga action. New glimpses into the Age of Darkness are coming with each new issue, and Zenescope is doing a good job keeping us wondering what will happen next.
