The final issue of the phenomenal Beast Wagon will see the light of day on it’s release on the 1st April and while I hope it’s all a joke that it has to end I can’t wait to see what the fifth issue brings us.
Writer Owen Johnson, artist John Pearson & letterer Colin Bell have combined over the whole series to bring us one of the most unique & consistent indie releases in years which has raised the bar for everyone it seems. The raw inventiveness held within the pages has astounding me & many other reviewers, critics & fans alike with a story that surprises on pretty much every page. It almost feels like a loss that it has to end but a short burst of genius is far better than none at all and I’m sure while we’ve got these five issues and the Beast Wagon Tails to read & re-read there will always be something new to discover or just enjoy soaking in the crazed world they’ve created.
The first glimpse of the Finale hit a few weeks ago and with just over two weeks to go until the final issue is released the countdown is surely on to see how this one finishes up. Take a look at those early pages and you’ll see that it’s more of the same levels of perfection from before……
