Things go from bad to worse when Peacemaker, with the help of some Golden Age superheroes, infiltrates General Immortus’s secret island base-but ends up captured by a drug smuggler with a penchant for his own goods.

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Aug 1, 2023

    Peacemaker Tries Hard! #4 is the most fun I've had reading a comic in quite some time. Kyle Starks' script is pitch-perfect, using a masterful handling of each character's personality to add variety to each joke and punchline. All of this would be impossible without Steve Pugh's artwork, Jordie Bellaire's colors, and Becca Carey's letters. The trio perfectly conveys the visual aspect of each gag. Additionally, the creative team perfectly captures the cinematic nature of each action sequence. The result is an absolute knockout that demands a read by fans of Christopher Smith. Read Full Review

    After action pieces, arguments, and more violence, the issue ends with some progress on the journey to saving Peacemakers beloved puppy. Currently there are only 6 issues solicited, but Starks and the team have made for such an enjoyable journey that I hope it constitutes well past that. For now, I will just have to be excited about issue 5 and be okay with that. For Peace. Read Full Review

    There are so many hilarious bits in this issue, such as Amanda Waller's constant frustration and the monologues of some of the villains. Is there much of a plot here? Not exactly, but it doesn't particularly need one. It's more about the vibes than anything, as we follow Peacemaker on a bizarre day-in-the-life. And it's hilarious. Read Full Review

    Peacemaker Tries Hard! started well and continues to get better with each passing issue, and #4 promises the best is (somehow) still to come. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 2, 2023

    Throwing caution and rational thought to the wind, much like their main character, Starks and Pugh give us another chapter of awkward moments, fist-pumping and terrible ideas in the heat of battle. Fun stuff, if you're of the right mindset. Read Full Review
