Review: Kate @ All That Geek.
Victor Gischler (X-Men, Angel & Faith, Noir) and Tazio Bettin’s trigger-happy heroine reaches the climax of her post-apocalyptic pursuit in this epic penultimate issue.
New Orleans ain’t what it used to be… Long gone are the jazz bands, boutiques and Mardi Gras mayhem, leaving only rubble and mutants in their wake. With their goal in sight, Sally and her crew are gonna need a little more than luck if they’re hoping to navigate the city in one piece. Better get those guns loaded, ladies!
In the last issue, Sally found her dreams coming true as she stood in a field with her crush Tommy, or were they? In another action packed adventure from Victor Gischler, Sally and the crew escapes from ‘The Clan’ only to find themselves ambushed by more mutant cannibals! As they get separated, Sally is left to fend off the mutants with only a handgun and an injured Tommy by her side.
The only disappointing thing about issue #4 is that its the second last installment of this wonderful post-apocalyptic ride. Filled with more intense action sequences, the issue moves fairly quickly to the final cliffhanger. The story does feel like a bit of a repeat of the previous issues, only centering around the crew battling their way down the flooded streets and Sally once again rescuing her love Tommy. However, Sally’s wit, bravery and exasperation for when things go south, always makes for an enjoyable read.
I’ll be interested to see how the overall story is tied up in issue #5 and if Sally finally gets her man or if he too suffers an untimely fate.
