Title: The Fourth Planet # 1
Publisher: Chapter House Comics
Writer: Fred Kennedy
Artist/Cover: Miko Maciaszek
Price: $ 3.99 US
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Comments: The stark simplistic art with the use of moderate color makes for some gorgeous art.
The story is hard to follow. It starts off talking about slaves becoming free than we see sailors returning from the sea on an alien world.
Next we start to follow some street walkers (fancy whores) and they find themselves in a bit of trouble.
Next we see two lovers cuddling in a field. How do all these things tie in together?
Next we see a crashed ship and the crew going exploring this alien planet they crashed on.
Ok all this is happening on the same planet. It is a strange world.
One of the street walkers now she starts hearing voices. The voice calls her its Queen. Why? What is this mysterious voice? We do see the mysterious being behind the voice. They are illustrated nicely. But who and what are they?
The comic needed to be smoother flowing in its story telling.
The characters are of interest and the art does show them off nicely.


Title: The Fourth Planet # 2
Publisher: Chapter House Comics
Writer: Fred Kennedy

Price: $ 4.99 US

Comments: We learn more of the priest he is a great warrior but would rather pray than fight. Meanwhile the people who crash landed prepare to explore.
The story jumps back and forth between different scenes to much it needs to focus. The basic idea though is that both groups the humans and aliens are each in a war. Now hey may end up in another against each other.
Ok the crashed people are the escaped slaves. These things should be made clearer. It is hard to follow who is who.
The use of red in the red makes it stand out. The priests do look great with the red hi-lighting them.
We do get to see the three main players as they stand out. What the prostitutes role will be is still a mystery. She is an interesting character and it will be interesting to see where the story takes her.




Title: The Fourth Planet # 3
Publisher: Chapter House Comics
Writer: Fred Kennedy
Artist/Cover: Miko Maciaszek
Price: $ 3.99 US
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Comments: One race of men and one race of plant based aliens have met and it was not a good meeting. Now one man is a prisoner.
There is an atmosphere of subtle violence just waiting to spring forth. The art as well is subtle and the creatures are colored wonderfully to bring out their personalities as a race.
As representatives meet things go south real fast. Having only two people wanting peace while all the rest are raring and ready to fight and kill is not a good thing. An all out assault on the aliens city ensues. Lots of fighting here. The action does get intense.
Than we see her. The page practical radiates with her power. The Queen plus one have just evened this battle. Things are heating up.




Title: The Fourth Planet # 4

Comments: A battle is going on with three factors involved. The invaders, the city dwellers and the big creatures.
Ixandra is a huge entity that is protecting her city and people. The coloring on her looks amazing. The city defenders in red and grey are wonderfully illustrated. The invaders are drawn with little detail to them.
Why the big creatures attacked is not made clear. The invaders are stealing from the city.
Over all this story moves very slowly and not a great deal happens.
Ixandra is shown in action. She is a behemoth as she leaps in to battle.






Title: The Fourth Planet # 5
Publisher: Chapter House Comics
Writer: Fred Kennedy

Price: $ 3.99 US

Comments: Ixandra is illustrated wonderfully. The use of colors on her black form works. She is a Queen. The story is not made clear enough.
The visuals are stunning. The ships at sea are beautifully colored with use of minimal color.
Why these people are doing what they are doing is a mystery. Nothing at all is explained.
The females are vaguely illustrated. Their features need to be brought out more.
There is a war going on between different factions. You can see they look different but what else is different about them? Why are they at war?
This issue does offer some nice visuals that you will enjoy seeing.
