Another strong entry in this series. In broad strokes, this continues to be a paranormal action ghost story. But centering its narrative on teenagers in the punk rock era, Home Sick Pilots becomes and coming of age story full of uncertainty and decisions making while also channeling the rage of characters faced with a world steadily marching toward further pain. With Vol. 2, the challenge between harnessing pain or giving into it becomes even more clear as Ami and the others try to figure out how to survive the clash inevitably headed their way.
