Vertigo Quarterly: SFX #4

Vertigo's latest anthology series goes out with a BANG! Quite a few of them, in fact. The last issue of SFX gathers short stories inspired by the sound of gunfire, the popping of balloons, the kick of a drum and even the origin of the universe itself. It doesn't get any bigger than that!

    70% of these stories totally enthralled me. That's pretty good odds and you might have even better luck than me if you give this a chance. I guarantee there's something in here for you, especially with so many great twists. Read Full Review

    There are obviously more cool tales to be read in this collection, but these are just the ones favored by a single man. Perhaps you will dig the others more. The $7.99 cover price may be a little steep, but I think this book has something for every Vertigo fan. Read Full Review

    With this, Vertigo puts the second series of the Quarterly Anthology to bed and I'm so glad that it's stuck around. Bang seems the right place to leave this theme, with a nice range of interpretations and quite a few tones and genres on display. Depth and clarity are the flaws most commonly seen in this issue, while specificity and cleverness tend to be its strengths. Though the $8.00 price point is harsh, Vertigo has proven very skilled in curating these anthologies and this one is no exception. Many of these stories are merely nice to have once you have them and some of the most promising disappoint, but, while it is a little less even than its brethren, there are some real gems in here.
