Review: Devolution #4
Once a bastion of forward thinking and the arts, San Francisco is now anything but. Can our crew survive the home of the most savage tribe of Thralls alive and make it to the re-evolution agent? Check out the thrilling new series that Rick Remender describes as “a heavy dose of high-octane action, character drama, a world of strange reverse mutations, and social commentary – as we follow the last tribe of humans inoculated from the devolution agent as they set out on a desperate journey to try to find a way to re-evolve life on Earth.
Just when you think it couldn’t get much worse for Raja, it manages to. She reveals why she is so determined to reverse the virus, that has changed the world. I won’t spoil her reason, but I think it may surprise some readers. She does succeed in finding the serum that will reverse this, but is stopped by a strange pair of men. I’m curious to see how this series concludes with only one issue left.
The art by Jonathan Wayshak is surreal, as they arrive in San Francisco. Only to find it filled with cavemen, mammoths, and other animals affected by the virus. I will admit the way the two strange men at the end are drawn, makes me wonder where they came from. Let alone why they are dressed in something that looks like it does.
