Kay gives a pep talk to his crew. Everyone looks less than excited. They really should make a reliable vehicle adequate for a Swamp Thing. He doesn’t have much room back there

The crew track down Karen at the Synagogue, as planned.

The issue comes to a head on a windy bridge. The whole crew is back together with the Conclave agents close by, ready to strike. The evil spirit has taken hold of Liz and begins to teleport everyone to it’s evil layer.
Note: knowing who Grasp actually is, I’m not sure why he is shown pointing a gun at the evil spirit

Grasp is codename 666…

Letters Page:
Well, you can’t please everyone. For the most part, the letters page is a tough read at the start of series two. Everyone criticizes Pasko and Yeats, Looking for what Wrightson and Wein put into the character.
