Nitz does a good job with the wrap-up of this issue. The plot is wrapped up with some stuff set up in case it continues. It’s a good way to end a mini-series. The possibility to continue the series exists but at the same time we have a complete story in case there is no more.

The pacing is a bit odd though. Russell narrates the story, telling a story about his father and what led to him joining the Air Force. But as he tells his story, hours pass. It reads like the narration is in the future and the story told by the art catches up to the narration in time for the big fight.

Which is kind of a disappointment.

We only got a couple glimpses of Fariad and all we know is that he’s a terrorist and he has the same powers as Russell. It’s odd for the main villian of the story to have such little impact. Russell shows up and the fight is over as quick as it began. It’s kind of anti-climatic.

Tortosa’s art is decent. He’s got a loose line that gives it a kind of lumpy look. It’s not bad, a decent style. Some of the perspective choices are a strange, but overall it’s decent work.

Bring The Thunder #4 receives
3.5 out of 5

A good way to end the mini-series, providing a good starting point for more stories.
