Surprises. That’s what makes “Ring of Truth” such a great volume.
Yorick, in a fight with some members of a ruthless offshoot of the Culper Ring, loses the engagement ring he had planned to give to Beth. Soon thereafter, he begins developing symptoms of the plague that killed the rest of the men on Earth.
Agent 355 goes on a suicide mission to recover the ring and save Yorick.
This volume also sees the return of Yorick’s sister, Hero. The last time we saw her, she was part of a radical group called the Daughters of the Amazon, but she had since been rehabilitated — but Yorick and his friends don’t know this, yet.
We are also introduced to a new villain, a ninja assassin named Toyota, working for a mysterious “Dr. M.” We’re left to wonder whether she’s working for Dr. Mann’s mother… or if Mann herself is behind Toyota.
This is a solid volume with plenty of laughs to lighten the dark mood of the post-apocalyptic world portrayed in the series.
