delphic's Red Lanterns #4 - The Departed review

Trusting Issues

This is a decent issue, but there’s nothing really miraculous about it. This issue follows mostly the thoughts of Atroticus and his newfound mistrust of the newly enlightened Bleez.

There is also uneventful story telling in the side plotline involving Raymond and his brother, with no real development outside the police are chasing Raymond now. Given the choice a second time around I would probably pass on this issue, and I really hope this is not the beginning of a decline trend for what so far has been a stellar series.
