Kaching Comic Reviews

Published on September 20th, 2017 | by Kevin Given


Review: Secret Weapons #4 (of 4)

Nikki Owen and Avi were told that they were rejects by Toyo Harada. They set out to prove him wrong, but it hasn’t been easy for them. They’ve been living in fear ever since the Willows had been invaded. Enter Amanda McKee, she entered their lives and promised them a degree of protection. It’s been a topsy turvey ride, can they overcome their enemy and find themselves?

The Creative Team:
Eric Heisser brings us to a rousing conclusion as Owen is chasing one of his crows to find his antagonist. The scavenger has underestimated his opponent. The plot has certain unexpected weaves that will surprise the reader as the unexpected happens. It’s a fine tale of overcoming weaknesses and facing adversity head on.
Allen and Martin make this an enjoyable read as their characters show the right mix of emotion and pathos. The art is subtle and doesn’t diverge into cartoon territory which works for the story that this team is trying to convey. It’s great stuff.

In Conclusion:
This is a unique title, especially for Valiant. The characters are three dimensional and their conflicts are relatable. I recommend this story as a bit different from the usual comic book tropes. It still has plenty of action for the comic book fan, but also speaks to us on several levels. A winner for sure ***1/2 (8.9 rating)
