Synopsis: After Merlyn’s captor is revealed, Malcolm begins his confession…
Review: Issue #4 began a new sub arc in this twelve issue limited series. The upside is that the confusion I expressed in my last review has been addressed. The Barrowmans are retconning and giving readers two separate secret organizations and two separate sets of characters. The downside is that it took four issues of exposition and flashbacks to circle back to the beginning of issue #1 and begin the tale in earnest. That means they’ll likely have to embellish relatively little plot with a great many structural flourishes. That said, I enjoyed meeting 19 year-old Merlyn (I’m assuming John Barrowman provided pictures for reference), and I’m looking forward to what this all means for show canon.
