Writer - Mark Roslan
Artist - Mike Bowden
Publisher - Aspen
Review by Jeremias de Leon
The story in this issue builds up on the previous three and sees characters returning along with character growth for Molli. This time we see Molli really starting to come into her own and make big moves to get her sister and Asher, the cyber boy, back.
The dialog feels a lot more fluid and though there's a little bit of cheese but it makes sense. It's a bit hard to explain but given the situations the characters get in you would see that indeed it does make sense.
It feels like the story elements introduced in earlier issues has started to culminate into something awesome. Molli's character growth, the character reintroductions, and the stakes that they raised really make this issue feel fleshed out and worth reading.
The art in this issue is wonderful. On top of Molli's wonderful character design the other characters look a little more defined in this issue. Their defining features seem to be enhanced more and it lets you know that each one is an individual that should be recognizable and not lost in the shuffle.
The action sequences are well done too, they look like they're taken straight out of an animation. Explosions and the like look like they are really damaging and that there is a lot of energy in them.
This issue with it's great character designs, nice action sequences and a story that's starting to become much more interesting and makes you want to read the next issue as soon as it comes out. I have to give BubbleGun issue 4 a 9 out of 10.
