Review: The Precinct #4


Who is the Hooded Man? What mysteries lie in the heart of the Alchemy Academy? Will Mort and Jo be able to get answers before they’re ripped to shreds by mechanical monsters? All this and more in the thrilling penultimate chapter from Frank J. Barbiere and Crizam Zamora!

The roller coast ride of steam-punk and magic never seems to end. A conspiracy unfolds, as there is an attack, on Parliament. While attack moves the story forward, it manages to leave some wonderment as the hood stays on. The mastermind remains unknown, but one thing seems certain. With one issue left, it will be an explosive end to the series.

Like previous issues the artwork by Zamora is a superb balance of the pseudo-science of steampunk. With the natural flow of magic, and alchemy. There is a contrasting color scheme between the two, that allows for a clear distinction.

Honestly, I hope both the writer and artist continue to expand on the setting of Big City. There seems to be a lot of room for expansion and a more lengthy series.
