A God…or a Sociopath With Ultimate Power? (Review of Clive Barker’s “Next Testament” #4)

NextTestament_04_preview_Page_1Tristan and Elspeth have been in a lot of danger already…but falling out of the sky? That’s where we pick back up in Clive Barker’s “Next Testament” #4 from BOOM! Studios!

LIGHT SPOILERS ONLY

After the first appearance of Wick, sides are being chosen…but not before Wick shows the extent of his powers once again.  After all, the sky is falling…or rather the planes are falling out of the sky!  While Wick wonders what it will take to get everyone to notice him as God, Tristan and Elspeth are wondering if there is a way to stop this sociopathic deity.  As to what happens next? It just gets wilder from here…and you’ll need to grab this issue to find out more!

Clive Barker has created a truly fearsome villain in Wick, one without mercy, compassion, or reservation in using his vast amount of power.  Barker and Mark Miller have brought another high-intensity thriller in this script, with continued stellar art from Haemi Jang.   This is a great series – though you may want to be careful about reading just before you go to sleep…
