In the forests of hypermodern folklore, a rusted-out warrior raises her fists and beckons to her this the final fight for Maria Kamenaya?
Sasha Vasnetsov finally has the tools for his brother's liberation: will, drive, and a stolen warsuit capable of decimating legions. The only problem is, he had to abandon the suit's owner, Maria, to get it. After weeks on the road together, is that betrayal something his soul can handle? Or will he put a pin in his vengeance and turn his guns backward to help a friend...?

    The iron War-Habit has been found and the climax has begun! Lots of great payoff in this issue, with plenty of action and surprises for Sasha and Gena. Maria continues to be an incredibly strong character, with her being powerful in and out of the suit. The visuals are terrific, often telling the story without text. The colors are beautiful and the letters are perfect. This is storytelling at its best. Read Full Review

    The best issue of this series yet. If Dead Kings #1 - #3 were like a clenched fist behind a back, this chapter is a swing right to the face, so powerful is it with the amount of consequential plot it packs onto every page. Read Full Review

    While BOLD lettering is still being overused and marring the readability of the text"this is a hill upon which I will die"and the relationship between Sasha and Maria is a little forced and unbelievable, Dead Kings remains a compelling read. The story itself is fascinating, the art is nuanced, and the characters, though lacking a bit in the 'fully-fleshed' arena, are relatable enough to hold the reader's attention. Now that the climax of the story has been reached in a rather explosive fashion, it will be interesting to see how the fifth issue plays out. Read Full Review
