Spirits of Vengeance 004
Well, that felt like coasting. As in 1-3, the team moved blindly around trying to find out what's going on and what to do about it. The acceptable energetic artstyle -and less pleasing action choreography- was the same as those 3 issues. The SoV manage 2 go-nowhere encounters. One with a sadly unnamed naughty mystic and then with the fiery dwarf, Ragnar, both of whom relent. But basically it was a recap issue. Basically Lucifer né Satan, now called Marduk, serves up all of Necrodamus' sinister plot on a silver platter to his Damian and Satana.
GR, Blade, and Satana did nothing special. The only bits of note:
-Blaze delivers a funny "3rd person" line
-Hellstorm's dynamic with his father was brief but fascinating
-Marvel manages, believe it or not, to demonize the Apostle Judas even more
-The Covenant finally begins on the last page
Does this team have a prayer of gaining more fan support?
