With time running out an etherial guide visits John to try to turn him down a different path … is there enough time or will darkness rule the day?

The second story “My Brother’s Keeper begins at a funeral, we find Quinton grieving the loss of his younger brother. In anger Quinton and others blame another boy – Dante for leading his brother down a path that brought him to the grave. Two etherial guides arrive and take Quinton on a journey through his past that will change his perception and will force him to face a hard truth.

The third and final story “Policy of Truth reunites Martin with the original Decisions artist Zach Bassett for a tale about a rookie police officer about to make a choice that will forever doom her destiny. Our guides arrive to to give her one chance to alter events that will lead to the death of innocent teenage boy.
