Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #4 Review


“It was somebody tidying up loose ends...”

Plus, writer/artist JOHN HIGGINS brings you the latest chapter in saga of the CRIMSON CORSAIR!


Cover/Solicit - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 5/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 4.3

- I never had the chance to read Watchmen when it was released but enjoyed the Watchmen movie. This series of Before Watchmen has been up and down for me. Note: I don't read the Crimson Corsair stories so will not include them in my review. Unlike the other Before Watchmen comics this one seems a little long winded. Not that its a bad thing, but it can get a little wordy. Overall I enjoyed this issue and the artistic style is fitting for the more dignified Ozymandias. This issue has Ozymandias retelling the events of the 60's up until the formation of The Crimebusters. It's a good read but nothing really important happens in the issue. At the end of the issue Ozymandias states that he will have to solve crime alone foreshadowing future events, and hopefully they will touch on them before the end.
