Writer: Kyle Higgins

Artist: Trevor McCarthy

Colourist: Dean White

Letterer: Clayton Cowles

 

This miniseries is has now concluded with the release of this issue. While this series was mostly consistently good, it never reached a point where I thought I had to recommend this to someone immediately. This issue has some great moments in it which might make it the best issue of the series for me.

 

The length of this miniseries didn't seem much to me but with the conclusion of the last issue, I was wondering how the hell Kyle Higgins and Trevor McCarthy would pull it off. Some beats felt a bit rushed in the middle of the issue, but Higgins mostly succeeds in concluding the story in a satisfying manner. This story was always narrated by Dick's son in the future, so the ending was honestly as natural as it could have been. Higgins throws in some great moments near the end that just made me pump my fist in the air with glee. Clearly you can tell I'm satisfied with the story.

 

Aside from a panel on page 8 where Dick looks like a mongloid, the art is extremely strong. It's bright and the colours pop under Dean White. While there is a decent amount of action in the issue, McCarthy manages to keep it toned-down yet expressive. I hope to see more of his work in the future.

 

Higgins and McCarthy conclude their story in a mostly satisfying manner. There are some classic moments to be had and the art is simply gorgeous.

Our Score:

8/10
