Book of Death #4

   This issue wraps up Valiant's intense "event" series, Book of Death - and it's been impressive (if dark) work.

   Death is a common thing in comics, of course - and it rarely lasts - but this series has played on characters and concepts, not cheap stunts, so it's been an excellent read.

   This issue marks the final showdown between the new Geomancer (a young girl), the Eternal Warrior, and the poerful, evil force that threatens... well, everything - with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.

   The story keeps the tension throughout, and has what may be far-reaching effects on future storylines. What more can you ask from an event?

   The art is quite good and the story manages some real surprises.
