Publisher – Valiant
Review by Jeremias de Leon
The story for this issue revolves around Neela and her numerous attempts to correct something in her past. Ignoring what Ivar said in the previous issue and how certain things in the past are protected and will not change no matter what is attempted.
Van Lente does a good job here with diving into Neela’s psyche and how she just thought that with the ability she has that she should use it to stop the one thing she feels should be. Which goes into how a lot of us have things in our past that we wish we could change but of course with the past being the past we can’t and we just have to learn to accept that.
Clayton Henry does an awesome job in this issue. Since the story is focusing more on Neela’s personal journey here with only a little bit of crazy action thrown in we get to see just how well he does with character designs and showcasing a variety of people with different ethnic features.
Plus of course the action scenes that are in this are done very well and are very eye catching.
This issue of Ivar even with as little time as the titular character gets on screen does so much with character development and moving the plot, especially with the end of the issue. It’s very entertaining with Van Lente’s trademark humor mixed with some serious issues and character development. I give Ivar, Timwalker # 4 a 5 out of 5
