This is the conclusion, and I can describe it in one word: BOOM! In more ways than one, Kaydon Klay lights this up! I was worried that I’d be let down with the big finale, but, boy was I wrong. This is one time I’m thrilled to be wrong, and what a way to end this year’s Glitterbomb. If you haven’t read this series yet you need to get on this. Wow, what a ride! I featured cover B in this piece because Miguel Mercado destroyed it with this cover. It’s just sick. Just one of those series that pleasantly surprises you.
Jim Zub never fails to impress with his Glitterbomb series. I know it’s a yearly mini-series, but I can’t wait for the next chapter in this series. I’d read anything he writes, and you just can’t go wrong like his Samurai Jack and Dungeons & Dragons runs. He had me from the get go on this. It was just that darn good, and what an unexpected twist.
Djibril Morissette-Phan brings such a balance to this book, literally bringing its characters to life…and death. The art goes from dark, raw, and gritty to bright and dreamy as someone gets a taste of fame and fortune. I’m digging this art as it fits the book so well and the flow is great.
If you love horror, crime, or suspense this is the book for you. This was tailor made for the mature reader and it’s such a great chance to read something out of the norm. From start to finish Glitterbomb: The Fame Game #4 is a great way to spend an afternoon and I’m rereading this series for a second time. I enjoyed it that much.
