Ok shit's gotten real now. First we see that the creature horps up undigested portions of what it consumes like owls to leaving behind 'pellets'. Folks are diein so fast we don't even really get to learn much about them them. They are just feeding whatever the Old God's beast is that came into the airport on the single prop plane that crashed in the first issue.
I;m not a gun enthusiast but the rifles from the opening couple, that bite it, look pretty sweet and would probably look even more so in real life.
Big gnarly lookin beastie with multiple tentacles coming off it's midriff with two arms and two legs three to four times the size of a normal human being. The maw is a gaping starfish looking assemblage and it has a dorsal fin running from the base of it's skull to about where our tailbone would be in comparison, maybe even a tail it's hard to tell.
Opal seems to be a worshipper of whatever this thing is or whomever sent it. Not good.
Solid cthulhu feel for the creature. Interesting, different setting. Darker pallet, grungy dirty kinda horrorey art style. Good stuff so far.

When we meet Marvin Mosely we see he's a man of color, married with an infant girl. He;s agreed to be part of an experiment not on him but with his help. An external resource to help educate a seemingly artificial intelligence. Nice to see a story where the black man is not the subject but rather a part of, the experiment.
Currently Mosely is a janitor that is granted powers by a higher being(s) with the admonition to 'free my people' One would assume that means humanity but I suppose it doesn't have to. I'll just read along and see. Either way a new hero is born.
Not the distopian future we see in the Matrix universe but one none the less where the mechanical mind seems to have supplanted the biological mind to a large extent. The two still seemingly working together but one where adherents to the human mind's place is such that they left the planet to stay at the top of the developmental totem pole.
It will be interesting to watch Mosely hunt down and destroy something he was part of creating.
