To WAR! Movement#4 review

This series has become one of my favorite DC titles due to great art and writing from Gail Simone and Freddie Williams but also its amazing original characters. So picking up from the last issue Virtue has declared war on the Coral City police, and in this issue we get that war and oh what a fight it is. Tanks are thrown, Rats are everywhere, People in masks fighting Swat teams, and so much more. However while the fights are amazing what Gail is really good at writing are the characters. This issue we get a couple of our heroes origins, and a secret that one of the Movement is hiding from everyone else. Beyond all that it is just a pretty amazing issue, and I can't wait for the next issue, to bad its in October due to Villains month. The only other thing I can say without spoiling is that Katharsis is actually starting to get really scary and brutal.

They are loud and grand and often quite fantastical. In an almost complete about-face, Gail’s new series for DC is something much more personal, much more relevant. This is a series that deals with vigilantism and corruption with a superhero flavour. It posits a situation where the people rise up en masse to protest against...
