REVIEW: 'Justice Warriors' #4 by Matt Bors and Ben Clarkson

 


JUSTICE WARRIORS #4

Writer: Matt Bors

Artist: Ben Clarkson

Publisher: Ahoy Comics

Release Date: September 21, 2022

Cover Price: $4.99

Continuing the smash-hit miniseries co-created by Pulitzer nominee Matt Bors! The Prince of Bubble City, feeling unpopular, orders helicopters to drop pallets of cash on the impoverished Uninhabited Zone, stirring its denizens into chaos. That, and the onslaught of the revolutionary Libra Gang, add up to another lousy shift for UZ cops Swamp and Schitt.  

Score:

★★★★☆ (4/5)

QUICK REVIEW: 'Justice Warriors'  grows darker by the issue which makes sense as the violence and conflict between the police and the Libra Gang escalate. There's still plenty of dark satirical humor to be found as the mercurial mayor throws literal money at a societal problem instead of attacking the systemic root cause, a ridiculous proliferation of "hella copters," and astrological sign discrimination. What makes 'Justice Warriors' weirdly special is the unpredictability that each issue offers. You just don't know what strange idea from the creators has found its way onto the page and remarkably their instincts just work. Schitt and Swamp share a surprisingly tender moment that we haven't seen before and then you remember it's a mutated frog person and a character with a poop emoji as a head we're talking about here. With a biting satirical backbone and an irreverent sense of humor, 'Justice Warriors' continues to delight in the absurd and we as readers are better for it.
