REVIEW: Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #4
Book Title: Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #4
Book Description: In the third installment of “Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal,” we saw our antihero, Marjorie, getting arrested for all of the time heists she pulled. The arresting officer was none other than Marjorie’s sister, Harriet.
In the fourth issue in the series, we see Marjorie in a temporal prison. This facility is designed to hold the worst. There are inmates in there that Marjorie has gotten the best of during her adventures. Now they want payback. They come after her in the showers. Little do they realize, Marjorie also has some friends on the inside that are good in a fight.
Elsewhere, Harriet is trying to celebrate. After all the time it took to capture Marjorie, it’s finally over. Something Marjorie said isn’t sitting well with Harriet though.
When Harriet intercepts a transmission she learns how serious the issue Marjorie was talking about is. The temporal police are useless in this situation. There’s only one thing left to do: Break Marjorie out of prison.

I am enjoying Marjorie’s Devil may care attitude. Her lack of a filter and blithe comments in high-pressure situations could rival Deadpool. The difference is I truly believe she’s more fearless.
In this issue, the humor wasn’t only coming from Marjorie. Harriet’s inability to get her home entertainment system to work properly, Dangerous Debbie, and Mother Smother were all great comic relief.
I have appreciated how throughout the series the majority of the covers are relevant to the story. The cover artwork on issue 4 is no exception. The mug shots tell you that Marjorie is incarcerated, which she is. Mind you, it almost felt like a homecoming for her.
Marjorie’s carefree attitude is displayed very well as the interior artwork continues to take the story to new levels. I got a kick out of Skanky Sal.
“Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal” is not a children’s book. It has a lot of adult humor and language. That’s part of what makes it so entertaining. So pick up a copy for after the kids go to bed, and get ready to laugh.
