‘Gutter Magic #4:’ Comic Book Review

This is the final issue of Gutter Magic. After ages of searching, our hero, Cinder, has found the mysterious Oppenheimer and forces him to perform a ritual that will finally give him magic, like the rest of the family. But will the ritual work? Why is magic so fiercely guarded, and why didn’t Cinder inherit magic power, like the rest of his family did? Also, what will happen when all the havoc Cinder’s been causing to get to this point, finally catches up with him?

This issue isn’t quite so action-packed as the previous ones, but it’s still a lot of fun. The art and color are both amazing as always, and we even get to see a tank face off against a fire-breathing dragon in one panel. The story is a little anticlimactic, in my opinion, and just slightly more open-ended than I’d like, but there are still some nice twists that really bring things together.

This has been a great ride all around and worth reading from beginning to end. It’s action fantasy at its best. If you’re a fan of magical battles, magical chase scenes, and the fusing of magic and science, then Gutter Magic is the comic for you.
