‘Titans: Beast World’ #4 brings the first casualty

Titans: Beast World #4 begins to set up the final act of this epic event!

This review contains spoilers for Titans: Beast World #4!

With the battle for Earth heating up, Amanda Waller has started acting. So far, we’ve seen her plan, scheme, and prepare to make her big move. Beast Boy seems like a lost cause, at least to her and she doesn’t trust the Titans to save the day. Through this issue, we learn more about Waller’s plan to save the world; and are reminded that while Waller isn’t a hero, she will make the hard choices. In issue #4 of this event, Tom Taylor and Lucas Meyer deliver a can’t-miss issue for Titans’ history.

While we’ve seen the Titans on the forefront, this issue focuses far more on Peacemaker, Amanda Waller, and a man named Chester Runk. If you’re unfamiliar with Chester, it’s best to research him briefly before continuing forward (or continue without knowing and be surprised!). In the opening pages of the story, we see Runk recruited (or “voluntold”) to be part of Amanda Waller’s plans. Without delving further into the issue, it’s worth noting that Tom Taylor has made this event rather enjoyable through the cast’s utilization of the story. Although this is a Titans event, everyone involved has a role to play in this story, and that includes Chester Runk. Throughout this series, there is an overarching theme of impending doom which seems to be engulfing the story. The issue moves rather fast but holds a steady pace as things are kicking into third gear. Furthermore, the story, although a heartbreaking one, moves at just the right pace so that nothing feels misplaced.

Artist Lucas Meyer partners once again with colorist Romulo Fajardo Jr., and the two are a force to be reckoned with. This is another stunning issue from Meyer, whose art seems to ripple off the pages. Meyer’s intricacy elicits a beautifully animated story. Along with the vibrant colors from Fajarado Jr., this issue flies by both narratively and artistically. A perfect example of their teamwork paying off is about two-thirds into the story when the Titans are attempting to do damage control. There’s no dialogue on this page really, so their combined effort is what carries the emotional weight of this page. Furthermore, this issue is absolutely stunning from cover to cover.

Overall, Titans: Beast World #4 is another strong entry in this event. As all the pieces begin to fall into place, it becomes more apparent how this event will set up the Titans in the DC Universe in the future. While there have been a lot of moving parts in this event, their connectivity becomes more apparent as the three main storylines prepare to interweave themselves.
