Jace's past has come back to haunt him, and there's no outrunning it this time. While Tawnk is faced with fending for himself, Jace does his court-ordered time in a mental prison for what feels like ten years, living a life of what might have been. This one is going to get a little emotional, folks.

    The problems with the writing in this series remain exactly that in issue four, so there's not much point in my delving into that again. The story took a slower pace in this issue which was absolutely necessary due to the more sensitive tone, and there were a couple of excellently executed moments. Personally I feel that the major outburst from Jace just before he is hauled off to serve his sentence was too abrupt, however. It needed more build to make it believable"it goes from zero to sixty in the blink of an eye and the catalyst comes from left field, which makes it feel contrived, as though they couldn't think of a better way to move the characters' psyches toward bereft (for Tawnk) and remorse (for Jace). It did redeem itself in the final panels, though, and overall there was significantly more feeling to this issue than the previous three. Read Full Review
