Comic Book Reviews - After Twilight #4 Review
Category: Comic Book Reviews
Writer: Gary L. Watson w/ Richard P. Alvarez & Sandra E. Yates
At the end of the day, this was a “setup issue”, which means that the purpose of this particular issue was to pave the way for things to come. These types of issues are inevitable and can often times leave a sour taste in your mouth. I’m sure you can all relate to the pains of waiting a month to see what happens next, only to be told “wait another month to see what happens next”. Not the case in this issue though. The flow of the story is still virtually seamless and the art team is still knocking it out of the park, making even the most mundane of panels jump out at you and demand your attention.
Lastly, we are treated to a twist ending which I did not see coming. I admit, I was leaning towards giving this issue a 3/5, but the ending was so damn good it earned the extra star. Also, for all you big boys out there who enjoy the drawn female form(a group of which I am a card carrying member), you fine folks are treated to an eyeful. I’ll leave it at that.
Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): Though this was not my favorite issue of the series, it STILL gets a 4/5. A very strong sense of storytelling by all involved and a very unique story for the comics medium makes this series one you don’t want to miss.
