    Here's hoping the final issue will give us some decent answers as to what on Earth is happening in this series. As I still cannot fully comprehend it. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, Corben hits all the formal notes but the story falls flat. I just don't really care about what's going on, and everything just feels so stiff and contrived. The story functions better if you treat it as some sort of feverish nightmare, acting as if there are no real stakes for anybody involved. You could argue that good horror stories should be like this, but that just doesn't seem true. Rat God#4 suffers in particular because it doesn't get to carry any of the story and is mostly a diving board into the story's climax. If you're big-time into Corben, or just appreciate a weird tale with some formal flourishes, I can't stop you from buying this title. But there's certainly no reason to rush off to your LCS, or to be particularly excited about the climactic issue. Read Full Review
