From behind the scenes rises "He Who Is Always There," Ra's al Ghul, the very worst option before or after the death of Boston Brand. No path, no future will remain uncorrupted as long as Ra's al Ghul remains alive. Deadman would be better off if he halted his quest before death is the best of two options.

    Neal Adams' art is always beautiful. This does not change. However, the story is a bit of a mixed bag. While the surprises keep things interesting, there may not be enough pages left to finish this story off in a satisfying fashion. This could be the turn off issue for some, but there's enough potential in the concept to stick around for the last two issues. Read Full Review

    My other concern is how little regard Adams pays to the serialized format. Its as if he is counting on a six-issue run to be collected into TPB form. With 20 interior pages per issue, that amounts to 120 total pages. Adams has written the story accordingly, with little regard for where those issue breaks occur. As result,each chapter stops, rather than ends, and rather abruptly at that. Read Full Review

    I know you think I've given this comic book a low score, but I want you know that I know that you think I've given this a low score, so give that a think, hm? Read Full Review

    Neal Adams' latest exercise in absurdity continues in Deadman #4, with an issue that doesn't deliver anything resembling a coherent narrative but does deliver so many strange creatures and visuals that it's almost worth reading. Almost. Read Full Review
