CBR Review: Pale Horse #4

I recently reviewed Pale Horse #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Pale Horse concludes this week in a manner that attempts to bring together the various disparate elements of the story in a powerful, emotional payoff and doesn’t quite succeed. Beginning as a straight-forward tale of revenge and shifting to a story about a bounty hunter who has a bounty on his head and a young son in tow, Pale Horse ends with the end of the American Civil War, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and a conspiracy to ensure a Confederacy victory post-surrender. The ideas behind each of the parts of the series are interesting, but mashing them together in four issues and expecting a strong finale is an incredibly difficult thing to pull off, and it doesn’t happen here."
