With issue 4 of the Further Adventures of Nick Wilson, well, we get ‘further’!

For those new to the title, this Image book is another original… it explores the idea of the fallen superhero (quite literally). What does a guy do when his powers vanish, and he needs to make a living? Nick Wilson is that guy, and the story progresses in this issue:

Nick has been hired to work for a former adversary. That comes with a whole host of complications. Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger arrives at the Nick Wilson Experience storefront, wanting to see Nick. It’s someone from back in the superhero days, and his story has its sad side…

The shining light in this particular issue for me is the appearance of Ian Churchill as guest artist. Ian brings a fun twist to the issue: he’s able to draw the characters in a seamless imitation of the regular art style, and can also ‘ape’ other art styles too! What a treat! Check the issue for flashbacks drawn in Archie style, and WIll Eisner (later work) style, too! Very cool!

Story is by Eddie Gorodetsky and Marc Andreyko.

Image Comics, The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #4, $3.99 for 30 pages of content. Rated M for Mature

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
