    Who exactly is the "destroyer" in this series? The monster? Akai? Or purpose man himself? Victor LaValle continues to weave a thought-provoking and engaging story that will be a lasting impression on readers. Destroyer #4 has great character development, and the writing is a joy to read. We've already lost two characters who, while minor, were somewhat humorous, and things are hitting the fan so expect more bodies to fall. One thing I can say for sure is that I have no idea how this story is going to end. Both sides are powerful, with no intention of giving up, so it's looking to be an interesting finale.

    Quibbles aside, Victor LaValle'sDestroyer is a thematically-rich miniseries with nuanced characters, and it has certainly hooked me enough to want to continue reading. LaValle has melded socially-conscious observations and classic horror tropes into a unique package, and Im curious to see its conclusion. Read Full Review
