Listen to the Allegheny Teen Center Reading Program #21 right now:
Yukito Kishiro manages to one-up his previous work with the conclusion of Battle Angel Alita v4: Angel of Victory, delivering incredible fight scenes AND fantastic character development AND compelling plot twists.
The tussle between Jashugan and Alita has been percolating for two volumes and it becomes reality in chapter five. Kishiro works a clever flashback sequence into the fight, mixing some tantalizing plot teases into the awesome action.
We marvel at the silent sequences in these chapters and gush about the interesting interactions that occur both on and off the Motor Ball track.
After he end theme, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Hank 300 is alive and still working to help out Cecily, the troubled Teen Center member who recently traveled to Walla Walla, WA to find her birth mother. The bad news is that Cecily has been brainwashed by a bakery cult and Hank needs Nick’s help to extricate her from this surprisingly violent organization.
As Nick travels to Walla Walla to aid Hank and Cecily, be back here on Tues, Dec 31st to hear a pre-recorded conversation between Rebecca Cohen and Nick as they discuss Solomon Mars‘s incredible Myth of Eustro digital comics!
