While stowing away on an Imperial supply ship, Mian and company are nearly incinerated when the ship is attacked by an Imperial Heavy Cruiser bearing a peculiar call-sign. But who on the continent would have the guts, much less the means, to attack an Imperial transport and win? When the eyepatch-wearing mercenary Khada shows her face, however, Mian learns there's more to "Grief" than meets the eye...
This is the only issue of Caravan Kidd to get the "Mature Readers" warning label on the cover for the prolonged shower dialogue between Mian and Khada. Dark Horse decided to use the descriptor and release the issue with the artwork uncensored rather than cut back on the nudity.
