Publisher’s Summary: Roman and Sergei passed the point of no return a long time ago. All that remains is the question of whether they will finally taste freedom—or die in the frozen wasteland. Yet even as they work together to survive the brutal and unforgiving tundra, the machinations of the Domovik may wind up consuming them both. The epic tale of survival horror comes to a deadly conclusion in Road of Bones #4 from writer Rich Douek (GUTTER MAGIC) and artist Alex Cormack (SINK).

Review

“There is no god but hunger.”

Three have become two. Although surviving this frozen trial was always a long-shot, freedom has never seemed so far away. 

Road of Bones #4 provides readers with a fitting, albeit bittersweet, conclusion. After the bloodbath that was Issue #3, I was eager to read this fourth and final chapter. And, yet again, Rich Douek and Alex Cormack exceeded expectations and delivered another unforgettable issue.

Reflecting on this four-issue run, now that it has reached its end, not only leaves me wanting more, but it gives me good reason to return to the beginning of this tumultuous tale and experience it with the added insight that is provided in this final chapter.

A must-read, Road of Bones is ruthless and thrilling and unlike anything I’ve read.

Bottom Line

This final chapter is an epic one; thrilling and intense, Road of Bones #4 offers a fitting conclusion to what has been a bloodcurdling tale of survival.

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
