Cortland Hunt is an outcast and that’s the way he likes it. When the popular joker Ian Tanner refuses to take the hint to leave him alone; dead set on befriending the brooding loner, Cortland begrudgingly opens up to the idea. But Ian’s feelings grow to more than just friendship and Cortland isn’t sure how to handle it.

I like the way Cortland and Ian’s relationship progresses from friendship to possibly something ore and Ian is the perfect bubbly, silly counterpoint to Cortland’s sullen and aggressive nature. But I have some concerns about how this story will go considering Ian has a girlfriend that he’s been with for some time. I’m sure there’s a way to work this out in a way that’s not problematic but I’ll have to wait for the second volume to see it. 4 out of 5.

Max’s efforts to settle her powers have landed her in a universe where Chloe and Rachael are alive and she shares an apartment with the couple. But now Max keeps seeing a boy nobody else can see who gets nosebleeds just like she does when she overtaxes her powers.

Max is showing her knack for finding trouble in this volume and here we are seeing the same character traits that annoyed me in the game. At least the plot has them sit and just hash shit out but I found myself cringing too often for my taste. I am enjoying this art style, though. 3.9 out of 5

Based on the ending of the game in which Max chooses to save Chloe instead of the town, Max now finds herself jumping between timelines and unable to control it. Searching for a solution, they journey back to Arcadia Bay to find out how and why this is happening.

If you’re going to try and continue this story, this isn’t a bad way to go about it. I can see Max’s meddling having the side effect of making her connection to any reality tenuous and she would have to set things right in order to find her home reality. I also have to say, neither character is as annoying as they tended to be in the game. A vast improvement. 4 out of 5.
