FROM THE PUBLISHER: A LONG TIME DEAD 18 years later: a new Section Zero team continues investigating the strange and unknown, until a missing puzzle piece from their past is presented to them.
I will always accept a change of pace and scenery. Especially when I find that things seems to be dragging a bit, getting a little stale. I have been coming around to accepting what Section Zero was. And I was really starting to enjoy it, much more than I was after issue #2. Seeing a “new” Section Zero team lead by the now aged and experienced Thom was really cool. He has taken on the role of leader now, with a new team that has some pretty interesting abilities, “Demon Claw” anyone?? Some characters we know still pop up so that’s always a plus, keeps the reader involved knowing that this is the same place, same universe.
Tina after all these years is still missing. Sam is nowhere to be seen (well kinda) The team we knew is broken from the events of the ring of fire that Tina disappeared into. It’s really interesting that Tina has been gone for so long. Thom mentions they have tried to save her a number of times, with no luck. Thom goes to some of those old friends to learn where she might have gone, leading us to some really grand and spooky locals. That’s a great thing about this series in general is the geography of it. Some really out there places and the art for all is very very good. This issue in particular with the ship graveyard and coffins. Really good stuff.
Some good action, new locations and a new team got me really liking issue #4 of Section Zero. It will be interesting if for the next two issues the series goes back to the past or stays in the present now. They could go either way and both would be curious and appealing.
RATING: LET’S GO!
Emmet Davis, small town Ontario, Canada, I live with my two amazing kids and lovely partner. That's one half of my life, the other? Movies, Sports, and Comics.
Preacher, Batman: Year One, Locke and Key are some of my first loves and entries into the world of Comics, but the first comic I ever owned was The Amazing Spiderman: Skating on Thin Ice #1 from February of 1993. I was six years old then. That issue blended what I grew up to love as a teen and an adult, hockey and comics, and of course not doing drugs. Still own that same copy to this day. Thanks for reading
