Vol 4: Rising Action, illustrated by Jamie McKelvie, colored by Matthew Wilson
There is no way to summarize this volume without spoiling the ones that come before, so I'm not going to try. I will instead just provide my review.
This volume provided a lot of clarity to some action in previous volumes, but the underlying motivation of our "bad guy" is still unknown. Every new chapter gets us closer, gives some small tidbit, but there's still a big mystery to solve. The art is back to normal, without guest artists and colorist, so that was a major improvement from Volume 3.
This volume also doesn't have the major triggers that elevated volume 3 out of being appropriate for high school, but you can't really offer volume 4 without 3! There is still some language, and murder is a common thread throughout the series.
