Pretty Deadly #4 by Kelly Sue DeConnick & Emma Ríos
Oh whole thus far, the book has been pacing itself, letting a dead rabbit and a butterfly lead us in cryptic narration. It was pretty cute (how morbid am I that I think a dead rabbit makes a cute narrator?). Yet I can feel this story becoming more cohesive and all the pieces fitting together where up until now, they felt jumbled.
I've said it before, but I might as well say it again, the artwork is gorgeous. It's so up my alley and the whimsy I experience while reading it is not unlike the first time I read the Sandman series. Which may speak more about the metaphor and symbolism spattered throughout, than the actual art.
I look forward to seeing where the author takes the story from here on in.
