Airboy #4 Capsule Review


Title:  Airboy #4

Publisher:  Image Comics

Writer:  James Robinson

Artist:  Greg Hinkle

Cover Artist:  Greg Hinkle

Review:  ★★★★★

After a three-month break for the conclusion, we almost forgot that Airboy hadn’t wrapped up.  However, after jumping back into the first page, we got all the reminder we needed on how amazing this series has been from start to finish.  In Airboy’s world, or Robinson and Hinkle’s drug induced one (we may never know for sure), the creative team must finally step up and save the world by helping Airboy with a crucial mission.  This involves Robinson working through his own life-crisis, self-doubt, and fears to perform one amazing act.  At least the version of Robinson in the story fears that nothing he has written matters.  While the real Robinson has plenty of fantastic work so should have nothing to fear, this easily stands on top of his accomplishments.  It is real in a very surreal way.  The two have introduced themselves and the golden age Airboy into a modern-day Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.  It is a story anyone who has ever questioned their existence on this planet can relate to while finding plenty to laugh about.  It doesn’t get much better than this.
