The Courier #4
Zenescope

In The Courier #4, If you’re a hair stylist, or even a plain old barber, you need to be afraid, be very afraid because none of you are going to survive into any sort of post-apocalyptic dystopian future.

If you don’t believe me, check out the atrocities inflicted on The Specters in The Courier #4. No self-recpecting villain would go out in public looking like that if they had a choice. But then, in The Courier #4 things are pretty grim all over.

After The Courier #3’s dip into Eve Harper’s bad childhood memories, The Courier #4 opens with a look at Franklin’s disastrous youthful background before pitching us straight into Eve and Franklin’s mad dash to escape a horde of the aforementioned seriously haircut challenged Specters.

Eve and Franklin’s chances of escape look slim, but employing that tried and true philosophy that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”, Eve leads her pursuers into a horde of Primals and the entrail-centric bloodbath which follows buys them the time they need to make their getaway. We get a sneak peek at Eve’s past history with the Specters and the mystery of what’s become of her brother as Franklin’s need to get back to his own brother and sister leads him into a whole world of trouble.

The Courier #4 tees us up nicely for next issues final issue. Slick as a greased hog in a Sons of Anarchy meets Hunger Games sort of way, The Courier #4 is well worth your time and effort. And  shows a hell of a lot of promise for the future.
