‘Trista & Holt #13:’ Advance Comic Book Review

When last we left our star-crossed lovers, Issy Holt had been forced to marry Trista’s aunt Marcella to broker peace between their two criminal empires. As we join them in this issue, we find that these inconvenient circumstances have not stopped Issy and Trista from carrying on their torrid affair, right under everyone’s noses. While they seem to be safe for now, it will no doubt be extremely dangerous for both of them if anyone else finds out. Meanwhile, Trista agrees to take a secret meeting with the Norwegian, the hired gun whom Trista believes killed her friend and mentor, Governal.

If any of this is confusing to you, there’s a handy guide at the beginning of each issue to remind you of who everyone is and how they fit into this rather complex story. Fortunately, however, once you get into the story, things are much less complicated than they seem, and you probably won’t need to reference the guide too often.

This issue, like the last few, is full of action, intensity, murder, and intrigue. We’re almost to the end of the run, but there are still plenty of twists and turns left to keep us on our toes. Characters seem to be dropping like flies lately, and it’s difficult to know whom to trust—or what’s going to happen next . . . unless you’ve read the original story, Tristan and Iseult . . . but I haven’t, so don’t tell me. I’d much rather wait and see how things play out in the next couple of issues.

Trista & Holt #13 will be available digitally and in print on March 1st here.
