Romantic and brilliant coder Lexy Ryan finally gets her wish: a St. Valentines dinner with her dream lover, Lord Byron. But dreams rarely work out the way we want, and when Mata Hari leads her army of cheating husbands onto the Golden Gate Bridge, jaded fantasy quickly turns to full-scale nightmare. Taken prisoner, Lexy and her father clash as the horrible truth about Lexys mothers death is revealed, while Incubator ice-queen Angel gives Byron a terrible ultimatum.

    New Romancer #4 moves with a gleeful energy, with Peter Milligan cheesing up the dialogue in the most delightful of ways as Lord Byron and history's other great Romantics prove themselves to be less than what you were led to believe. Read Full Review

    Peter Milligan burns through a lot of plot in New Romancer #4 as Lexy, Byron, her dad, and crew at New Romancer are beset on all sides by the CEO of Incubator, Mata Hari, and Casanova, who basically just wants to watch the world burn. He starts to lay the road for the first arc's endgame, but everything is very much in the air. This is definitely a comic that I read for the flair of the character's voices, the adorableness and unfortunate optimism of its protagonist, Lexy, and the energy and humor of Brett Parson's art rather than its overarching storyline.
