Mara #4 Review

This has been an interesting miniseries from Image. It has a wonderful blend of nontraditional comic story elements and a tinge of superhero mythology. It would make a great transition series for readers used to reading superhero comic books. While the fourth issue is not the strongest in the series, the story as a whole is worth your time and money. For those late to the Mara party, keep your eye out for the digital copies and trade paperback in the future.
