An old friend returns. Although this short thumbnail sketch of Astoria (2 pages) featured the same immaculately coiffed, impeccably dressed femme fatale who had master minded Cerebus' initial tilt at the Prime Ministership of Iest, there seemed something frazzled about her.
It's dialog driven and for most of the chapter it seems as of Astoria is either talking to herself or rehearsing a speech that seeks to run down her enemy Weisshaupt. That is until the final panel when her audience is revealed as a bleak looking Bishop Powers. I get the feeling that the Church has well and truly entered the State now.
