by Jarrod Jones. Pearl’s been on one hell of a journey, rocked with bullets, broken faces, and blood.
She’s looking for answers, about her family, about everything. Real “finally getting my shit sorted” kind of stuff. This journey has brought her to Japan, where her excellent killing skills have been tested. Against Yakuza, against boss Mister Miike. Now, with Miike out of the picture, all that remains is her father.
There are some things she’s got to work out concerning her dad. Having a heart-to-heart with one of your folks is rarely easy, and the kind of things Pearl has on her mind concerning her mother—they’re a real doozy.
Mister Takegaki had a solution for Pearl in Pearl III #5. It came unsolicited and didn’t seem especially helpful, but it went like this: “My father was from another generation […] When my fucking siblings would have an argument, he would throw us in a closet and say, one way or another, ‘work it out.'”
“It made me who I am,” he tells Pearl.
Now Takegaki has put Pearl and her father in a room. To figure things out. With the questions Pearl has for her old man, this will only end one of two ways. Dear ol’ Dad: “Pearl, are you wearing a wire?” Yeah, unlike the immaculate tattoo lines Pearl can lay down, this isn’t going to be pretty.
