Wildfire 4 (October 2014)

Wildfire #4

Wildfire gets across the finish line with a lot of problems. Hawkins still manages to sell the issue, but he’s got some questionable moments throughout. Besides supporting cast members ending up dead, things go pretty well for the protagonists this issue and everything sort of works out. There’s even a time lapse towards the end of the issue to get out of character development.

And that omission is something of a blessing in disguise because Sejic’s art looks like bad cels from a cheap CG kids movie. Like a direct-to-video Disney knockoff. Something about the way she draws the characters this issue, their expressions… it’s like 101 Dalmatians or something.

There’s just enough of Hawkins’s attention to detail to get the story done. He reminds of better moments, better realizations. The series probably needed another issue to really get the ending done well.

But it’s still somewhat successful.
