Voodoo #4 Review

The mysterious Voodoo has left destruction in her wake since fleeing New Orleans. Her nemesis Special Agent Fallon remains hot on her trail as she heads for Metropolis…and Fallon isn’t the only one, as a new, third player enters the hunt.

Summary

Voodoo now in a different costume breaks into a secret base, smothers some guards and infiltrates their database. She knocks the technician out and retrieves all the data they have on the superman and the justice league. On her way out she’s caught by a group of soldiers. She quickly dispatches them and knocks out the power system as she makes her escape.

In the same building agent Fallon discusses pursuit of Voodoo with other agents. When the power goes out they realize Voodoo is there. Outside Fallon sees her but she manages to escape by morphing into a dog.

 

The Good

Art-Sami Basri continues to turn in stellar work that would make Carlos Pacheco on Uncanny X-men envious. Top notch work from start to finish.

Mystery- The other alien chasing voodoo draws ever closer and her mysterious abilities continue to be slowly peeled back and revealed like her civilian identity.

Action- Voodoo’s infiltration skills and the confrontation of this issue made it one of the most action packed issue yet.

Cover-Courtesy of Sami Basri, it’s unique and symbolic. Voodoo is standing behind a bullet riddled human shaped target. Get it? She’s a target! lol

Story- Voodoo’s mission to gain intelligence on earths heroes is a very interesting one since in the new continuity many agencies are doing the same thing. Her

DC New 52’s only surviving Black lead comic! Respect Voodoo! Sorry Static and Mr Terrific!

 

The Bad

This is Ron Marz finale issue 🙁

Sales figures- This book is almost at that magical cancellation number 🙁 if we don’t pick up a few thousand fans soon it’s the end of solo black books in the New DC universe 🙁

 

The Ugly

4/5 Marz will be missed but with Basri still on art I’m willing to see where this goes before the inevitable cancellation.

stars- 4
