Still in SoCal, Lila and the gang decide to do a little sunbathing at the local beach. But things take a turn for the worst when witches—Orla’s cronies—come after them.
Everybody deserves a little R&R once in a while, even witch hunting teams, right? Just kick back, maybe catch some rays and get away from it all. You would think so, but that just doesn’t seem to be the case for Lila and company in Dollface issue six.
After fighting SoCal traffic, the gang finally gets to the beach to have a great day in the sun. Much to their dismay, minions from the witch they last encountered them have tracked them down. An all out brawl ends up sadly taking the life of Emily’s girlfriend Paige, reminding Lila of a hard lesson she learned in her previous life.
Although it was short lived, this issue got to show off the happier, lighter side of art for once. When things went downhill, it gave us more of the darker, harsh visuals that often come with it. The untimely death of Paige was particularly rough to see and really emphasized the impact of that scene.
I just knew that things were going to take a turn for the worst and this is certainly going to sting. It’s great to see more of Lila’s past, as sad as some of her history is going to be. Hopefully you don’t have to deal with a lot of traffic to reach your store so that you can buy this.
