Review: Assassin’s Creed #4
Assassin’s Creed #4 is without a doubt the best issue in this series with the action in high gear, character development and stunning flow of the story. The way the story shifts between past and present is done intensly and vigourusly making the upcoming cliffhanger notable as well as the story leading up to it a treat. The pace is just right being not to slow or not to fast and making every turn of the page, every dialogue I read and every panel I inspected a true treat. And now I’m looking forward to the conclusion of this story arc with just the right amount of eagerness.
Assassin’s Creed #4 continues with Charlotte discovering the truth behind Tom Stoddard’s experience in Salem. With the discussion about the missing Assassin also making an intense part of the story, the uncovering of the truth is multi-part and the reader can really concern himself with which angle to choose from.
More Charlotte De La Cruz is what we really get in this issue and that IS the heart of this series. A compelling character that with the many angles of this story making this arguably the best issue to date.
I am not going to give any spoilers because this issue was way too good. It was a thrill to read and definitely needs to be read with ALL the issues in hand to read back and forth.
The admiration I have for Neil Edward’s artwork, with the amount of action, many panels per page, intense details and the perfect artist for such a character/story-driven series!
Cannot wait for the conclusion of this amazing series!
