Synopsis: It all comes down to this! Kate, Susan and Lucky have to shut down Resort Chapiteau once and for all, and to do that, they have to follow the Circus of Crime into the very last place Kate ever wants to go: home. Don’t miss this fantastic Hawkeye finale.
Having rescued everyone from resort Chapiteau in the last issue. Kate and her sister Susan meet up with America and Stinger and head into Bishop Mansion where The Circus of Crime is waiting. First Kate has to have a rematch with Fifi before going on to take on Madame Ringleader who makes clever use of some mirrors to fight Kate. Thankfully, Kate’s friends are not too far behind and are able to help her out.
Enid Balám does a solid job of the artwork in this final issue of the story. I loved the overhead perspective of Bishop Mansion that we see when Kate is talking to her friends through her plan. I also loved the sequence of panels that depict Kate’s fight with Fifi as we see two archers go head-on against each other. But the best is definitely saved for last when we see Kate’s final battle with Madame Ringleader play out. I loved all the different perspectives we got of Kate’s reflection in the mirrors.
Marieke Nijkamp wraps this story up nicely. I really enjoyed meeting Kate’s friends and seeing how they work together. But it was also good to see Kate’s relationship with her sister improve as a result of this adventure. We get some brilliant artwork throughout and the Circus of Crime provides some fun and interesting villains for Kate to fight.
Overall. A really solid final issue that does a solid job of setting things up for some future adventures, which I hope to read real soon. It’s just a pity that I am no longer able to subscribe to my digital comics due to Amazon’s idiotic revamp of Comixology. As their dumb move has definitely impacted our review schedule.
