Battle Beasts #4 released this week and, while it changes perspective a little this time, the issue was still a lot of fun. I’m going to try to keep this as spoiler free as possible so I may be a little vague at times. The art and fighting are bring and colorful which I’ve come to really enjoy. With so many comics coming out that are dark and gritty this is a nice change. There was probably a little less fighting this time around but I found that I did not mind that as much. The extra dialog was needed to wrap up the story arc. Bliss’ boss has no intention of turning over the dread weapons despite the devastation the beasts are causing. He is enjoying the power and knowledge they give him too much.
This issue changes its focus just a little and is told from the perspective of Bliss’ brother. For once he actually does something useful instead of his usual trouble causing. The gravity of the situation seems to have finally sunk in he would do anything for his sister. While we generally expect the good guys to win in the end I did not see how this story played out coming. It was a little anti-climatic in some ways but looking back it does seem to fit the characters.
While this story arc is now over I hope we will see more Battle Beasts down the line. Either with these same characters or other ones. There is so much potential here with what has been started that it would be a shame not to have it continue. Battle Beasts #4 does not answer every single question that readers might have but it answers the important ones and with a satisfying conclusion.
