One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Knight and Squire #4
BAD THING: The main plot of this issue is surprisingly standard stuff, given how unique this book has been so far. The old "hero must fight his own weapons" issue.
GOOD THING: Cornell still manages to give us some nice twists with this issue, such as the revelation that The Knight's butler is a Texan named Hank.
(Okay - he says in the notes at the end of the book that he was trying to write a generic American Southerner in parody of how Americans are usually portrayed in British television. But that "ya'll" is distinctly Texan. I'm just saying.)
The Final Verdict: A fairly standard comic plot but Cornell manages to make it interesting, though this issue lacks some of the quirky humor of the first three issues.
