Review by Scott Keys
After the tragic ending to issue 3, where do Clev and Saffron go after that? The answer: Morgenstern’s front door!
The book opens with Clev shaving his head, giving him a new look with his new “no nonsense” attitude. Saffron begrudgingly helps Clev figure out where Morgenstern is hiding out after he finds out that the Army (and probably Saffron’s superiors) were in on the death of Morgenstern’s son, Chris. After tracking down the possible location, they are confronted by some of Morgenstern’s clients, and a battle ensues! Clev takes down two of the assailants, and out of the shadows, Terminus takes out the third. Together, they head inside the hideout to (hopefully) confront Morgenstern! Of course, we have to come back next month to see that!
The team of Jolley, Kirk, Riggs, and Baumann are a fine tuned instrument! This issue definitely takes a darker turn, and every member of the Bloodhound team makes that evident! Clev’s look and attitude reflect the darker tones set at the end of last issue, and they set up what looks to be an epic ending to this awesome tale, and I can’t wait for it! Go check out Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #4 (and each previous issue, of course) if you want to check out one of the coolest titles on the shelves today!
