Synopsis: Who can you really trust? Now on the inside of the Rover gang that runs Bayport’s criminal world, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys turn to a black sheep brother to guide them through it all. But as they put together a sting operation, are they the ones that will be stung?
Review: Anthony Del Col continues to lead readers through an investigation, which sees Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys fully infiltrating the Rover gang and learning more than they bargained for.
Following last months ending. The team have learned that the Rovers have been smuggling drugs via the use of gaming cartridges and old electronics.
Armed with this information. Nancy and the boys use it to turn Sam the younger brother of the Rover’s, but can he really be trusted.
This issue ends with another cliffhanger, which brings up more questions than answers.
Who killed the Hardy Boys father?
Did Sam rat his brothers out to the fuzz?
Is there a chance that the police could be supplying the rovers?
Either way. We’ll likely learn some answers to these questions in issue five next month. But I’m enjoying the ride thus far.
Art in this issue was pretty good. I’m still loving the nostalgic feel that Werther Dell’edera is able to generate. He makes the town that these events happen in feel like a post card from the 1970’s, which lends the book a fairly cool feel. That wall is broken however when the story makes mention of the Dark Web and things that are relevant to 21st century life.
Dynamite have done a great job of bringing Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys back for a modern day audience and in so many ways make up for the 2007 Nancy Drew movie, which didn’t really find its audience.
Hopefully if this run of comics is successful. We’ll get to see more stories from Dynamite with this license.
Nancy Drew And The Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #4 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday 21 June.
