Colorist: Miroslav Mrva
Letterer: Clem Robins
Publisher: Berger Books

This finale to the first arc of She Could Fly is as great as the first three issues. This fourth issue is absolutely chaotic and it is very fun and very emotional. After each of the first three issues, I was really excited to find out what happened to all of these characters in the next issue. Well, here we are after the fourth issue and I want to know what happens next for these characters more than I have ever before.

She Could Fly #4 wraps up Luna’s story with a lot of blood and drama. I don’t want to spoil anything for you so I will refrain from elaborating too much but believe me when I tell you that this issue is an absolute roller coaster.

At the end of the issue, we find out a little bit about why this story is so well written and why it is so emotional. Christopher Cantwell shares some of his struggles with mental health and wrote some of those struggles in Luna. The beautiful thing about Cantwell doing this is I can also see my own struggles with mental health in Luna and that is what made her so intriguing to me from the start of the series.

In the previous three issues, we saw a lot of really bizarre things due to Luna’s thoughts and they are what would make the issue really stand out for me. This issue has some of that strangeness from Luna’s thoughts, but also has a lot of that strangeness from reality and that is what makes this issue explode with excitement.

Also, Cantwell didn’t just write this story about Luna and her struggles, which would have been great by itself I am sure. He wrote this story about Luna and her struggles and about Bill and his invention and about a war between agencies for this invention and so on. It is amazing how many layers Cantwell wrote into this story and it is even more impressive that each layer is incredible.

I know that I gush about how much I love Martin Morazzo and his artwork in every review of She Could Fly and Ice Cream Man but brace yourselves, because I am about to do it again. Morazzo’s style is so unique that it makes this already odd story even more extraordinary. Like I said above, this issue has a lot of action and a lot of blood and Morazzo makes it all as shocking as it should be. Also like I said above, this issue has a lot of emotion as well and Morazzo captures emotion better than most artists that I know of.

She Could Fly finishes it’s first arc with a thrillride that elevates this already amazing series to an even higher plane of originality. This issue is full of unpredictability and unconventionality which makes it the most exciting issue of the series and the most exciting issue of the week. This team is a powerhouse and I have no idea how I am going to make to next spring to find out what happens next in this story.
