Gigantic #4

Written by Rick Remender
Art by Eric Nguyen

This book was beginning to disappoint in a number of ways, but this issue feels like redemption. The twist that Remender supplies at the very end helps fill in some of the inconsistencies in the plot, and makes the entire series make a lot more sense to me. I'm not sure where the next issue is going to go to wrap up the title, but I am interested in staying with it through the end.

Nguyen's art continues to bug me in this issue - there are only a few pages that look as good as his earlier work on Strange Girl, as he seems to be adopting a much more traditional comic art style.

John Cottrell is credited for 'art assist' on this issue, which might explain why the look of the book seems so inconsistent.
