    From the first two issues of Four Eyes, it's readily apparent that Kelly is not content to merely tell a romping fantasy yarn. The author is layering his story with the perfect combination of meticulous symbolism and simple wonderments, creating a memorable opening to what holds the potential to be one of the best books of 2009. This book really is a testament to the prospects of the creator-owned movement, and hopefully represents the future of an industry that can at times become stagnant in ingenuity. Read Full Review

    Max Fiumara (Blackgas, Infinity Inc.) has a very expressive style. I find it able to deliver both the giant action of dragon fights, as well as deliver the smaller violence of Enricos life, all while being able to display the emotion that fills the issue. Its very adaptable, being able to deliver all of what is demanded of the script. His dragon fighting sequence is particularly impressive, with giant panels of multiple dragons twisting and tangling themselves up with each other while smaller panels of the major characters reactions really drive home the fights impact. It is a spectacle to see and I can almost recommend the book based simply on this sequence. Nestor Pereyras colours really add to the sequences as well. The fantastci colurs of the dragons, with their purples and vibrant fires is juxtaposed with the very bland palette of the real world. Read Full Review

    That would be sans the fire-breathing giants, of course. Read Full Review
