Black Terror #4 — "So Many More Bodily Fluids Than You Could Ever Want"

(Dynamite Entertainment, creative team: Max Bemis, Ruairi Coleman, Brittany Pezzillo, Taylor Esposito)

What is this? With a nonsensical ending and so many more bodily fluids than you could ever want, to call this issue "baffling" would be kind. The Black Terror is a Superman-class extrahuman with swords, so he should be the coolest thing running. Somehow, he's … it's hard to say what he is, but he throws up on a disabled veteran. Like, that's not a spoiler, it's a trigger warning. There isn't a lot of dialogue and the villain Bad Groove is established via all-too-brief montage, which is not the most effective means. This feels like a missed opportunity that got weird in the strangest way. RATING: NO. JUST … NO.
