Namor confronts the original Human Torch and his hidden machine enclave in the Arctic Circle.
What are these machines’ true intentions?
The death of surface-dwelling humans?
The overthrow of Atlantis itself?
Old grudges will reignite as the Torch and Sub-Mariner take their battles to the skies and seas once more!
ComicBook.comWith just one issue remaining, Namor the Sub-Mariner: Conquered Shores is absolutely on fire in #4 – and that's not a Human Torch pun. In a sense, this is the most complex issue of the series as it sees not just Namor, but Luke Cake, Captain America, and even the Torch confront their own histories, their own biases, and their own mistakes in an attempt to come together in a way that will potentially move things forward to a better tomorrow for everyone. Unfortunately, something explosive happens that throws away all of that growth and progress and leaves to a dramatic twist that underscores an important concept: emotions can be the most difficult thing to master. This issue is masterfully written with great reverence to history of these characters. It's intriguing and fresh and heartbreaking all at the same time.
But Why Tho?Namor: Conquered Shores #4 is a touching penultimate issue. The emotions and desperation in this chapter are high, and that atmosphere is superbly manifested by both writer and artists. This comic has seemed like a love story to classic comic stories and characters, whether they are in the book or not.
Un Cómic MásExcellent penultimate episode full of twists and shocking revelations.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Cantwell does a great job of ramping up the tension in this issue. All of the characters are on edge and it wonderfully drives the drama throughout the story. I love how Steve is being utilized in the story and his speech makes what happens next all the more poignant. I am excited to see where this story goes and how the conflict evolves. The Art: Ferry delivers some great, dramatic art throughout the issue. The conflicts are brilliantly illustrated and visually engaging.
