The Champion is not what the warrior that the kingdom wanted but he is starting to show his worth. However, Goodfoot is becoming more and more dubious. Will this world survive against the evil that bestows that? Read on to find out more.
The official description from Image:
With the Great Champion away, the city is vulnerable to Goodfoot’s machinations.
This issue is very interesting because a lot of the story is told through the eyes of a Terrier named Dusty, who is following the Champion, which we learn the name of being Learoyd. Dusty follows Learoyd on a mission but Learody knows that he is and he tells Dusty. They bond on this mission to find out where the bats that previously attacked live. It is super interesting and reveals some interesting past to the character. Meanwhile, we see that the rest of animals are trying to find more magic while Learoyd is off. They argue over what they should do and who they should trust. We, also, get a look at the Goodfoot, who’s motives have not really been revealed fully. It wants you think that she is bad but I am not sure if that is fully. The Champion, also, knows that she isn’t trustworthy. The ending has Dusty doubting Learoyd but is won over by the last part. It is going to be interesting to see where it goes.
Kurt Busiek is a great writer but this issue had an issue of switching quickly to different parts, without a lot of transitions. It was sometimes hard to follow. It was still very good as an issue and brought me some moments of real joy and fun.
Benjamin Dewey does a great job with creating environments because we change worlds around. There are, also, a ton of characters and the attention to detail is fantastic.
Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw #4 is a good issue and has some fun characters moments.
