REVIEW: King Grimlock #4


REVIEW: King Grimlock #4

Book Title: King Grimlock #4

Book Description: In King Grimlock #3 we discovered that the Red Wizard was actually a Quintesson. Quintessons are a race that has five faces and personalities on a cylindrical head, sharing a body. They can be highly intelligent, but not necessarily good in combat due to the different personalities trying to simultaneously control the body. In a battle with a very angry Grimlock, this one didn’t stand a chance.

In the fourth installment of King Grimlock, we finally get a good look at the Golden One. As you would expect, the Golden One is gold in color. They wear an Autobot insignia but are more humanoid than robotic in shape.

Grimlock has a somewhat drawn-out fight with the Golden One. Eventually, Grimlock gains the advantage to win the fight. That’s when the Golden One reveals that they have one more card to play…. And it’s a game-changer.

This one was more along the lines of what I was expecting with a title that has Grimlock as the primary character. Grimlock is better in a fight than a debate. Most of his dialogue is very reminiscent of the Grimlock we got to know during the original animated series.

There is a lot of action in this issue. That helped make it very fast-paced and easy to fall into. I am looking forward to seeing how Grimlock responds to the latest development with the Golden One.

I absolutely love the artwork on this cover! It’s crisp. It’s exciting. It makes you want to know what is happening in this book. I’m especially fond of the detail on the dragon.

Agustin Padilla has been putting on a show for us throughout the series. The artwork on the interior pages of King Grimlock #4 is no exception. It’s vivid and pulls the reader right into the action.

As a geek on a budget, I would say don’t buy this one unless you’re either completely up to speed on the rest of the storyline or in the mood to watch Grimlock kick ass and take names. Otherwise, you’ll be hard-pressed to understand some of the characters (and their significance) that you will encounter along the way.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
