Review: Dept. H #4


With time running out, Mia launches a final, desperate attempt to rescue her brother. But the mission is endangered as soon as it begins when the crew encounters the dangers of the ocean floor: earthquakes, lava, and the creatures that lurk in the deep.

In Dept. H #4, an attempt to find her brother Mia uncovers something unexpected in the generator caves. As she searches for her brother, Mia’s mom is brought up sort of. Not in the traditional sense, as it is more of an internal monolog. While the conversation is interesting, it does lead one to wonder if she will show up in physical form. I find it really interesting that writer Matt Kindt went that route when presenting things this way.

I will admit the darkness of the cave is intriguing. Given the skeletal remains that are outside, it makes me wonder if something lurks in the cave, or nearby. Even the cave has an odd sense of color. As always, the art by Matt Kindt and Sharlene Kindt is beautiful to look at and beyond unique.
