Comic Review: Shredder in Hell #4

Shredder in Hell #4

Art and Story by Mateus Santolouco

Released August 28th, 2019

Oroku Saki faces the Dragon! With demons closing in on every side, the Shredder faces the truth about the world’s primal forces, the mysterious Pantheon, and his own soul!

We’re almost out of Hell with the Shredder as part 4 of this 5 part series hits comic shelves today! Shredder in Hell continues to surprise as nobody really knew what to expect when it came to this title. I was personally expecting something very metal and blunt as the Shredder himself (which we may still get) yet instead we have been getting a series much more ethereal and cathartic. Taking the characterization of The Shredder to new heights…even though he’s so far below. 

Issue 4 continues to delve into the life, decisions, and consequences of Orku Saki yet we’ve now come to a point where he’s met realization and now action is needed. I really enjoyed this chapter of the series as we delved into the lore of The Dragon and this sort of “rebirth” angle that Saki needs to partake in. The artwork continues to be a thing of beauty and terror all at the same time. If you don’t care for Santolouco’s story, the artwork is still enough for you to warrant a look. 

I’m a bit bummed to get closer to the inevitable end of this series. I didn’t know what to expect but it keeps surprising me with it’s thought-provoking chapters and beautiful artwork to match. Not to mention the fact that this all encompasses a villainous childhood icon: The Shredder that makes it even more special. Shredder in Hell continues it’s fiery path of passion and I’d advise you see it to the end. 

Shredder in Hell Issue 4 is available wherever comics are sold!
