In Review: Librarians #4

As the full-scale invasion from the magic-powered timeline threatens the entire world, The Librarians scour the Earth in search of the ancient artifact that can prevent civilization from being wiped out.

Synopsis: As the full-scale invasion from the magic-powered timeline threatens the entire world, The Librarians scour the Earth in search of the ancient artifact that can prevent civilization from being wiped out. But with unstoppable armies wreaking havoc across the globe, is it already too late?

Review: This final issue wraps the story up rather nicely and Orville gets a chance at redemption with a little help from the Librarians.

Throughout the four issues of this arc. Writer Will Pfeifer has done a brilliant job of staying true to the themes and characters of the show. In fact, the entire arc of this comic would have made for a brilliant overall arc and I’d love to see something like this story done in the fifth season of Librarians. If indeed we get a season five of the show.

My one gripe is the fact that it took a group of scientist to outwit a group of rogue magicians. I also found the use of time travel to end this story somewhat of a disappointment given that we could well have had rival magicians butting heads with each other.

I enjoyed how the Librarians help Orville remember the scientist that sent him on his mission before he got in with the magicians.

The artwork by Rodney Buchemi has been really good throughout and I loved how he went to town in this issue when it came to how he visually portrayed the magicians.

Overall. This has been a brilliant run and hopefully will lead to more comic book stories using the characters and the license for Librarians. While no substitute for the television series itself. It’s wonderfully true to the fun and adventure that the TV show provides.

I highly recommend this comic to all fans of the TV series and will be picking up a copy of the graphic novel when Dynamite decide to bundle it.
