    Grandpa Samael makes his mark on this fourth volume of Birthright as the machinations of the mages become clear, and both Mikey and Brennan move forward on their hero's journey while their mother and Rya run afoul of one of the other mages, before everything explodes and goes even more wrong.

    Birthright's a very easy book to pick up and read in trade form. Within a few pages I'd remembered everything that had happened up to this point, despite not having read the series for six months, which is a very good sign.

    The character work here is top notch; Joshua Williamson is fast becoming one of those writers I'm keeping an eye on. Brennan and Aaron's relationship, as well as Aaron and Samael's, are the hingepoints of this volume and they hold it all up very well. We also get some exploration of Samael and Enoch's backstory, and whilst the ladies' plotline takes the back seat, there's a lot of potential for everything to explode (again) in the next volume.

    Andrei Bressan's artwork remains highly detailed and great to look at. I love Image's approach to comics, allowing artists to get the most lead time and doing their best work as a result.

    There are a lot of sword-and-sorcery books out there, but Birthright makes its claim by being a very character-driven, gorgeous-looking entry into the genre.

    In my review of Volume 3 I admitted to being hooked now after only giving a relatively generous and unenthusiastic 3 stars to both first volumes. This series art & action scenes are colorful and imaginative, and the story and dialogue continues to improve over time. They appear to be plotting each volume carefully enough to provide one big revelation for the climax of each volume. The parents are underdeveloped compared to the rest of the story-so-far after having anchored the beginning, but

    In my review of Volume 3 I admitted to being hooked now after only giving a relatively generous and unenthusiastic 3 stars to both first volumes.

They appear to be plotting each volume carefully enough to provide one big revelation for the climax of each volume. The parents are underdeveloped compared to the rest of the story-so-far after having anchored the beginning, but at this point they're both caught up in the story and hopefully will get their own moments to shine.
