In Review: The Greatest Adventure #4

The Venture nears their destination, but the villainous Resolve is hot on their tail, and a heart-pounding aerial skirmish will leave a crewmember of the brave Venture lost in the Antarctic

Synopsis: The Venture nears their destination, but the villainous Resolve is hot on their tail, and a heart-pounding aerial skirmish will leave a crew member of the brave Venture lost in the Antarctic – and travel into the Earth’s core to the land of Pellucidar!

Review: Bill Willingham continues his story featuring Edgar Rice Burroughs best characters and gives us a few new twists and turns.

In essence this issue sees the team desperately searching for the missing crew member and also sees a few of the party doubting their place in the scheme of things.

We have a few heroics that reveal the Black Martians to be among the crew of the Resolve and we also close out on a cliffhanger, which changes everything in regards to who the villains really are.

By the close of the issue Tarzan has allowed a few members of his troop to go their separate ways. He realises that their numbers and technology are not the elements that they will need to defeat the Resolve.

For me this issue was a little on the slow side, which is to bad because up until this point I’ve found this to be a fun and engaging read.

Thankfully the art made up for the lack of story pacing in this issue.

Cezar Razek provides some of his best work in this issue from his detailed drawing of the Black Martian fighter being brought down to the various dinosaurs and jungle elements that we see.

As with previous issues. All the characters are beautifully drawn and a real treat to the eyes.

The end of this issue is a real game changer and it does have me looking forward to the next issue in spite of my slight disappointment as the slow pace of this issue. Hopefully my excitement will be justified.
