THE FOUR HORSEMEN
The King is dead, long live the King. In “Four Horseman” a power hungry Prince kills his father to steal the crown and kingdom. He knows the only thing that can stop him is the magic wielded by his father’s most trusted confidant, the Good Witch of the Dead Lands. Hiding in her place of power, she has been discovered and uses her magic to summon four warriors from across time and space.
Artist Matthew Childers meanwhile, does a superb job bringing this retro world to life! Mixing the classic lines of a Sean Philips with a slightly cartoonish air of a Darwyn Cooke or Bruce Timm, the tone for AiP is just perfect, capturing the classic pulp feel but giving it enough of a contemporary air to stop it feeling derivative. A large part of this is down to the exceptional colour work on show. Every screen is rendered with vintage hues that give the whole thing a sublime retro vibe, while the vibrancy of the digital colouring make every page leap off the screen at the same time.Pipedream Comics
