This new story arc in They’re Not Like Us opens with The Voice visiting Maisie at the hospital. And the clairvoyant has bad news for him…
In the previous issue of They’re Not Like Us, Syd had left the group followed by some of the others. Here, we find out what they’ve been up to.
Blurgirl (probably) tried to kill herself. This creates an issue: should they call an Ambulance and break the rules or let her die?
In They’re Not Like Us, Syd’s doubts take centre stage as Maisie tries to talk her into not leaving the group by telling here who The Voice really is.
In this issue of “They’re Not Like Us”, Blurgirl is having nightmares about her parents and talks about them with Syd. Meanwhile, The Voice and Maisie wonder about her.
In this issue of They’re Not Like Us, Syd is learning to use her telepathic powers and coming to terms with her new life. But there’s one thing she still needs to do…
They’re Not Like Us gives us a taste of what has the potential to be a compelling and original interpretation of the superhero genre. Less spandex, more dubious morals and outsider angst. Stephenson and Gane do a great job in introducing characters that will hopefully grow and develop as the series progresses.
