4001 AD #4 (of 4)

   In the distant future of 4001 A.D., the hero Rai was created to defend New Japan, a nation that was moved into orbit for its own protection.

   But when the hero discovers that the living computer known as Father (who has ruled over the nation for two millennia) is no longer benevolent, a confrontation is inevitable.

    With the lives of millions at stake, Rai faces a terrible decision - he can spare Father and save lives - or destroy Father and risk killing untold thousands.

   It's a powerful ending to the mini-series that takes us into the Valiant future (sadly, no Magnus, Robot Fighter this time around).

   With excellent artwork by Clayton Crain and a terrific story by Matt Kindt, it's a strong mini-series and a great springboard for Rai.

Grade: A-
