Publisher’s Summary: CHAPTER 4: ONE BOLD MOVE. The first story arc of Hollywood screenwriter/Aberrant-scribe Rylend Grant’s delightfully twisted deconstruction of the superhero genre comes to a rousing crescendo. Despite losing everything he holds dear in the wake of Mason’s assault on the Gyrotech HQ, Raines still refuses to step up to his former mentor… so, a well-meaning Amanda does something truly demonic to force his hand.
“The City was teeming with excitement today as legendary superhero Abel Raines – better known as Gyro – made his triumphant return to crime fighting.”
As much as I consider myself a member of ‘team Mason,’ I’ve been looking for Gyro (Raines) to get himself together and get back into ass-kicking condition in order to face Mason. Thankfully, in Banjax #4, Raines undergoes a transformation of sorts that brings this conflict to its boiling point.
Writer Rylend Grant wastes no time getting this issue off the ground and sprinting toward the finish line, opening the story with an explosive first scene. The issue ends on a note that is equally as explosive, and throughout, Grant’s script is saturated with dramatic tension and internal conflict that urges readers to keep the pages turning. And, although this first season ends on an exciting note, readers will definitely be left wanting more.
Ushering the first season of Banjax to a fitting end, Banjax #4 hits hard, brings the excitement, and leaves readers looking forward to what promises to be a thrilling second season.
