CBR Review: Demo Vol. 2 #6

I recently reviewed Demo Vol. 2 #6 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Wood has both characters narrate the issue and that rounds things out well. While it’s obvious which character is which, that doesn’t matter. As he did with 'Breaking Up' in the first volume, he balances things out. Both characters are damaged, both characters are hurt by and inflict pain on the other, and both characters make the effort to mend the damages. He works hard to not judge either too harshly or make one seem better or worse than the other. Surprisingly, that balance only adds to the dramatic tension of the narrative since either character can cause the next round of problems. It feels more real that way."
