As Pearl starts to put the pieces together, she realizes that her family was not as advertised. The real question is will she be able to confront this before Tokyo's most dangerous assassin comes to clean up the mess they think she's made. You are ill-prepared for the beautiful artwork that Michael Gaydos has brought to this yakuza epic about art, family, and the weird stuff in-between.

    The ongoing conflict between Pearl and Mr. Miike was the principal downside to the previous issue. Their interactions had reached a level of repetition that was less engaging. Resolving this conflict in PEARL #4s early pages gives the issue extra life by letting it focus almost entirely on Pearl and RIck. It also added surprise to the final page that a reappearance of Mr. Miike wouldnt have provided it. And from a visual standpoint, in a series like PEARL which uses minimal dialogue, the ability to so skillfully use color to further convey character development and plot progression is a valuable tool. Overall this issue, despite being the most lowkey, is the best of the current run. Read Full Review

    Pearl's artwork continues to be excellent but the story really feels like it has hit a lull. Read Full Review
