    Up to this point, Summoner’s War: Awakening has been more lighthearted and whimsical affair, but issue #4 moves the grim reality of war and revolution into focus, and the weight of that definitely has an impact. Writer Justin Jordan, artist Luca Claretti, colorist Igor Monti, and letterer Justin Birch still fill the world with charming interactions and delightful action brimming with vivid colors and personality, but at a certain point some of that gives way to the brutality and tragedy of war. That grim reality leads to difficult choices and illuminating exchanges between characters, and you can’t help but have a reaction to those circumstances and decisions as the story moves forward. Summoner’s War: Awakening has been a delight since it launched, but with the added emotional weight in issue #4, it only seems to be getting better from here.

    Jordan is beginning to ramp up towards the climax of this particular series. It’s going to be interesting to see the way it all comes together. Once things have settled down into a more intelligible fashion, the ensemble should hit the page with suitable flare. As of right now, it’s all kind of a mess. But that’s kind of the nature of battle, isn’t it?
