Seven Secrets #17

The series pauses for its penultimate issue, exploring the past of Eva and Caspar on the eve of the resurrection of her son (who is no longer her son), before the next issue's big climax between the two secret organizations over the secrets and the fate of the world. It turns out Caspar is indeed Eva's son, and was born human although the Seventh Secret went into him while still in the hospital and has been waiting for the right time to emerge. No time like the present.

Told through the grief of a mother who has lost her child, but still has hope that some form of Caspar can be saved, Seven Secrets #17 fills in the gaps involving Caspar's birth and his unusual gifts. Now we'll find out whether the remaining Keepers and Holders can help whatever Caspar has become defeat their enemy who has been one-step ahead of them this entire series.
