Comments: This issue starts off with a bunch of drug addicts, alcoholics and sex addicts. They just like to hang out and have fun. They are the best of friends. Raven and Tyler know how to work together to deliver a comic that the writing and art match up perfectly to bring across what is happening.

The art shows them off beautifully. Each one you can see what their vices are. The mysterious being that gives out these Gifts is drawn with a flare that leaves no mistake he is in control, he has the power. The drawing where the girl first sees him is a powerful picture. His Gift is a joint.

Bad cops kill her friends. The joint gives her the power for revenge. You see wisps of smoke. Itís her. As she enters the cop's leader he explodes from within outward. Itís a bloody mess.
This recipient of the Gift gets to see her mysterious benefactor one more time. When he tells her he could have stopped the killings. Believe it or not she lets fly with a right to the jaw. You can not just see how mad she is you can feel it.
