Sometimes it's hard for a comic author to find the balance between pictures and words. Too many words, you've got a heavily illustrated article, too many pictures and you've got something that can generally appear unfinished unless it's done just right. I get the distinct feeling that the writers for this comic must have written for radio before they found their voices in print.
This one is your classic story of a young man paying for the sins of his father, because for some reason you always get blamed when your ancestors did something stupid. Oh, and he kinda kills a guy. But it was an accident.
