The official synopsis for the issue teases that Avasarala will be approached by the black market Martian weapons cabal, which offers to help her reclaim her lost political power. Avasarala’s ultimate decision is said to have “fatal consequences” — though who those consequences impact remain to be seen.

It features writing from Corinna Bechko (Green Lantern: Earth One) and art from Alejandro Aragon (Resonant).
