Basil and Moebius are back in what may be their final adventure. In a fitting end, the duo go on one last whirlwind adventure with The Collector, their otherworldly master and benefactor. Jumping from one dimension to the next, they seek to evade The Collector’s enemies and return safely home - a task far more challenging and death defying than expected. As always, wherever these pulp heroes go there are plenty of quips, humor, monsters and explosions. Never underestimate just how much chaos and destruction these two can cause. Their adventures are escapist fun that is at once a tribute and a parody of Lovecraftian fiction. If you are looking for a thought provoking graphic novel experience this is not it. Instead if you are looking for humor, action and fast paced fun, The Adventures of Basil and Moebius are right up your alley.
The Fate of all Fools is a fitting end to their adventures, though it does leave an opening for future mayhem filled installments. Readers will definitely want to read all of the previous volumes before picking up The Adventures of Basil and Moebius V.4 The Fate of All Fools.
I received a copy of The Fate of All Fools from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

Concluding the epic series that spans four full-length graphic novels, a dozen prose short stories by fan-favorite sci-fi authors such as Timothy Zahn and Richard Lee Byers, and an award-winning live action short film staring Ray Park (Star Wars, GIJoe), Zachary Levi (Chuck, Thor), and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange)!
