Gosh. First, this opens with an issue that made me well up. I love the fact that Ivy is a mother and is also going all around the country with her Sherlock-like mind. It's fantastic to see such a positive female character being both an excellent mother and excellent at her job. It's not that every female character should be those things, it's just that these are the things that she wants to do so she can, of course, do them and there isn't any nonsense about it. So long as a person is doing what ...more

This is Julie, she is a damsel in distress. Unfortunately, she is also supposed to be the heroine. This panel sums up Julie and her actions to date. Despite the radioactive non-Newtonian liquid metal suit that not only protects her from a fusillade of gunfire but also blows apart anyone trying to do her harm with lightning, Julie still relies on the wits and support of someone else pretty much at all times. If the character of Ivy didn't balance her out, I would really wonder about how Mr. Moor

This volume gets quite violent, and (view spoiler) It's quite a good read though, nonetheless, and the midway point of Collider proves that science-talk doesn't have to be fact it may be my favorite portion of Volume 4.

I have to admit the banter owns me a bit by now. We've got our main cast and we know who they (what they do, where they came from) at least in all the important ways. I love how Annie is never completely replaced and can't be, because of this setup. Which is so original.

And on top of it we begin to see the ripples. How the main cast is effecting everyone else with their actions. Those working for the corporation. What is going on overseas. How the universe, at large, is actually interacting wit

This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-

Synopsis: Julie and Pam go to Ivy's, where Julie uses the Beta suit to help Ivy's sick daughter. Dillon and Dan get the backstory on HENRI and the suit from Will. Cain continues to leave a trail of death and carnage in his wake as he tracks Julie. And HENRI racks up a body count trying to cover its tracks.

Moore may have made his first stumble of the series when he had a scientist emerge from an experimental life-saving procedure with villainous superpowers. [roll eyes] This happened at the very

The artwork is as good as ever, and the storyline keeps getting better and better. I like the fact that this isn't just hard science fiction, but has a deeply human and emotional angle to it too. In addition, it is nice to see some questions getting answered and others getting raised.

Also, good job with the humour, Mr. Moore!

So stuff got real on this one. Though I'm not sure if stakes are high, or if Moore was looking for shock value.

Terry Moore makes a very strong attempt here at writing humanistic hard science fiction. It is not only good to see him stretch himself as a writer, but I think he pulls it off. In addition, in volume 4 it feels like we are building up to a big payoff pretty quickly.

Act II ends with a BANG. The characters are really put through the grinder in a way I haven't seen since Tarantino's Kill Bill. You can tell that Moore read up on his physics. I love the comparisons through-out this story of the Phi Project to the Manhattan Project.

Considering how much I didn’t like Strangers in Paradise, I love Echo. It’s really interesting, the artwork’s different, the story really catching me. I think I’m essentially caught up now and can go on subscription, but we’ll see.

Another strong entry. The frustrating part of reading something that is serialized is all the waiting for the next entry.... Moore's writing is strong, and his drawing is even stronger. Nice twists!

Getting so good that I can't stop to savor the books - I'm reading them all back to back now and don't know what to say about it except keep reading!

I don't think I should have skipped from the first volume of this series to the fourth - a bit too much story has passed in between.
This is a little exposition heavy, but it's also got some unexpected surprises in it. The story continues to be amazing.

there was a lot of science stuff in there that sort of went over my head. maybe Josh will "get it" when he comes to this part.

Really good! Strong characters, a number of storylines (but not too many!) and past events hinted at to give depth to the story.

It just keeps getting more interesting and compelling. Good continuation of the story. Already looking forward to #5.
The story is progressing, though slowly.
