The action picks up as our heroes fight for their lives. Today I will be reviewing Starborn #4. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
So let’s talk about the book. Tara and Benjamin fight the Pride but are heavily outnumbered and are forced to retreat. Too bad the Witches of Arbor, as well as more Hive mutants and Network drones come and surround them. With no other options, Banjamin surrenders. He is about to be taken when aid arrives in the form of General Cur Talon, possibly the last imperial survivor, and his Demon-class starcraft, a fire breathing dragon. Caught off guard, the captors are unable to stop Benjamin from escaping and fleeing into outer space. And that’s the book.
So let’s talk opinions. Another nice action packed issue. I like the quick origins of the Pride and the Witches. Gives you some nice background info. The pace of the issue was non-stop once again. This book hasn’t given us a second to catch our breath and reflect on what we have seen. Every issue we get new characters and bigger battles. I love the Dragon. Being a D&D geek, a good dragon always makes a book more enjoyable for me. The battle scenes were great. This time we got a daytime battle so nothing was obscured by shadows. Lots of energy blast scenes and Dragon blast scenes. That dragon looks awesome, by the way. Love the scale work. I still, however, have an issue with the overall art. The angles are just starting to annoy me. Everything seems overly elongated which makes it appear that less panels are showing up per page which leads to less story being told. Other than that, this book is action and excitement personified. Start giving me some more history and revelations about Benjamin’s past, and I’ll be completely satisfied. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
