Review: Nuclear Power #4
The truth has been revealed and soldiers of the American Union are set to clash with those cast off from society. Nuclear Power #4 delivers an entertaining chapter full of twists and turns as sides are chosen.
Nuclear Power #4 continues what has been an intriguing series that underneath feels like a not-so-veiled parable about choice, especially body autonomy. Desirée Proctor and Erica Harrell have crafted an interesting story that has delivered an alternate world where men make decisions for all, especially women. This issue, as well as the previous, feels like they’re starting to show what the world would look like if that wasn’t the case.
This issue is all about the confrontation between the American Union and variants. The bodies rise and tragedy mounts. It delivers a skirmish that feels scaled down in some ways keeping the series away from a massive battle that would probably feel like it doesn’t quite belong in the series.
Lynne Yoshii‘s art continues to impress. Yoshii’s art has a look that reminds me of Des Taylor, a little throwback in some ways and it works so well for the series. What’s great about the art is that it just fits the world so well with a balance between being “modern” and the throwback alternate world that it takes place in.
Nuclear Power #4 continues the excellent series with just two more issues left. We now know where the lines are and who has betrayed who. It’s been an interesting series that has delivered action, twists, and some interesting moral debates within. This is an alternate history that wants to teach us about our history and challenge or present.
