Feathers, from BOOM! Studios and Archaia, written and illustrated by Jorge Corona continues to impress me with every single issue. This month's, issue #4, elevates the story to a whole new level with a script so well written, that you won't be able to fight the emotional ups and downs throughout. Poe and Bianca have truly been the definition of friendship since they've met. We've watched their relationship blossom and grow to extremely loyal standards. In this issue, that continues to be demonstrated. With the town in an uproar, Poe and Bianca attempt to escape, but when they meet a mysterious man that has been controlling the minds of the mice, Poe takes matters into his own hands.
I don't know about you, but the moment that Poe lifts up a dazed Bianca onto his back, and leaps out the window, sent my heart flying with them. It was such a liberating, inspiring moment to watch. It's amazing how many layers of the characters personalities have been exposed over the course of four issues. Besides the gripping plot, Jorge Corona's artwork continues to be dazzling. I think I've mentioned before how comfortable I feel in this town. There are so many comics out there, where I acknowledge the great artwork, but I don't always feel connected to it. When I read Feathers, I'm always blanketed in this comforting feeling despite all of the chaos that happens.
It's impossible to talk about the ending of the issue without spoiling things, but I will say that it was difficult for me to read. Not because of anything wrong with the comic, but because it's just so heart-wrenching. I don't know how I'm going to wait another month to read the next issue. I'll just have to channel my inner patience! Don't miss out on this brilliant book. Pick up Feathers from your local comic book store today.
