The Shattering of Faith in '1602: Witch Hunter Angela'

Our latest session explores Angela and Sera in the Secret Wars spin-off set in Neil Gaiman's Elizabethan timeline.

Love doesn't come easy for Angela & Sera. After experiencing dastardly deceit and catastrophic revelation in Angela: Asgard's Assassin, Doctor Doom remakes the universe and dumps our Hevenly lovers in a Battleworld territory trapped in the Elizabethan age, Neil Gaiman's 1602.

1602: Witch Hunter Angela finds our couple serving a vengeful deity, tracking and slaying Witchbreed. However, when an even more dangerous threat appears - the Faustians - Angela & Sera hop to a new genocidal mission. In doing so, they uncover long-brewing questions about their purpose and feelings for each other.

In our second session with these two love birds, we examine their compatibility using Robin Roberts' Brighter by the Day: Waking Up to New Hopes and Dreams as our relationship guide. Our tribe is our vibe, but are a tribe of two enough to survive in such an antagonistic universe? We sure hope so.
