Review: Quantum Teens Are Go #4
A lot has happened in a very short amount of time for Sumesh and Nat at this point in Black Mask Studios‘ Quantum Teens Are Go. Underground super science clubs, conspiracies, mystery, intrigue, and of course high school and their own personal complications. But with this issue we eke out a few sorely needed answers as the first arc comes to a close.
Magdalene Visaggio’s writing, though I had my qualms about it before, comes together really nicely in this issue and gives the payoff and release that felt so sorely lacking in #3.
Again the art and colors of Eryk Donovan and Claudia Aguirre compliment the frenetic pacing of the writing well and reminds of zines with slight misprints and unavoidable ink splatters left behind. Now that we’ve got the full arc, I can definitely say this reminds me more of Pacific North Weird a la Life is Strange than Weird Science.
I do still question the decision to release this as monthly issues but the story overpowers my qualms. If you’re missed any of the issues up until now and can’t find them, a trade is slated for released on August 30th. All around, I do definitely still think this is one to pick up.
