    Alpha Flight #4 does everything right. The art is beautiful, the characters are complicated, and the book continues to touch on decades-old pieces of Alpha Flight lore. This book has been the biggest surprise of the era. It has not skipped a beat in proving itself one of the best in the X-Men line.

    Everything is being put into place for the finale for this but that’s all in service of the larger storyline going on with the Krakoa material that I’m not reading. Every time I look at the checklist of related titles it reminds me why I don’t read much from Marvel Comics these days, especially for the X-Books, which still saddens me since I was a huge fan during the 80s and early 90s. There’s a lot to enjoy here and I suspect we’ll have a decent ending to the miniseries overall but it is, unfortunately, a cog within the larger work that is the Krakoa and mutant storyline. It reads well and has some strong action sequences and visual designs that make it a fun read which is pretty important.

    Alpha Flight #4 if solid and very straight forward as it brings together the threads that previous issues have been rolling out and makes the stakes higher than ever as Krakoa North is found by the Box Sentinels in the final pages, bringing everything to a head. The pacing is strong, the storytelling is solid, and while there are things that do feel a little like caricature with Department H, there are real stakes for the characters and and investment in how things are going to play out. A strong comic, overall.

    Alpha Flight sets up an uncertain finale with a penultimate issue steeped in tragedy and disastrous outcomes. Godlewski’s art is great, and Brisson’s technical execution is solid, but the story lacks emotional punch or weight, so the setup heading into the finale feels hollow.
