Little Bird #4, from Image Comics, continues to amaze and astound.

The character Little Bird has become a captive at New Vatican, as endless medical examinations are conducted on her. They are looking for the ‘resurrection gene’ in order to save a life. But there are family secrets swirling around the place, and lots of violence.

Darcy Van Poelgeest writes an incredible second-last issue in this mini-series, and Ian Bartram with Matt Hollingsworth on colours deliver another visually arresting issue. The collective vision is the colour of faith, stained with blood, marked with the cross, and crossed out all over. It’s mind-bending, it’s so good and so worthwhile reading.

Bonus material includes a pinup gallery of new art.

Image Comics, Little Bird #4, $3.99 for 44 pages of content. Rated 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!!
