Review: Red Agent #4
Ditto had been saved by Britney and Avril in the previous issue. He successfully avoided a conflict with Alpha. Eve links to Ditto’s mind and begs for help from the Circle. In the meantime the Circle has successfully learned how to clone an army. It looks dire for our hero’s. At the beginning of issue 4 our heroes wonder if a mole has been planted somewhere.
Lou Lovino does what any good writer of spy thrillers does, he keeps you guessing. Ditto has given us a general location for Eve, in Tillamook. But there’s nothing at Tillamook save for trees and some old abandoned military bases. Why would Eve be held in such a place. The mention of a mole keeps the reader postulating throughout and brings an underpinning of tension that keeps one turning every page.
Vincenzo Acunzo has a simplistic way of rendering the characters that works well for this title. There’s not a lot of attention to detail in the distant characters but this adds to the overall energetic feel of the story and he keeps the panels rolling forward. His art calls attention to the moments that we need to focus on.
Things aren’t going so smoothly at Circle headquarters. The clones aren’t forming exactly as they should and the leader loses his patience with the team that is behind their creation. Our champions form a rescue committee and they are on their way to rescue Eve. When they arrive they encounter an enemy from the past. Or do they? he certainly looks like a villain they had encountered before.
While the team deals with that latest development The Circle is preparing to do something to Eve. Something they need to do in order to control the clones. If our hero’s don’t arrive in time Eve will suffer a fate worse than death! To Be Continued.
