Ben is still tormented by nightmares and anxiety, when this volume begins, and Steam has taken over all the chores of the house despite only possessing a rather basic grasp of the world and a most rudimentary vocabulary.
This situation is quite tremulous, so it’s no wonder that turmoil spreads in a world that’s deeply affected by Ben and Steam’s friendship/connection. It seems everything is tied to how those two deal with their problems and what and where this can and will lead.
Not Even Gilbert is left untouched.
Please take a look inside.
