Cullen Bunn and Nelson Blake II’s excellent all-ages comic reaches its conclusion with issue 4, which sees the bad robot – whose motivations for wanting humanity destroyed are, frankly, understandable – taking on the kids and his metal brethren in an epic battle.
As with the rest of the series, the concluding chapter is charming and though everything happens on a fairly small scale – there’s no world ending apocalypse to thwart here; it’s just one little robot and his small squad of helpers that need to be stopped – the stakes are still reasonably high and the danger very real for the two kids who find themselves on the receiving end of the little guy’s vengeance.
Things wrap up nice and neatly, though the ending is left tantalisingly open for a further volume of adventures. Byte-Sized is a blast from beginning to end, with the added bonus that it can even be enjoyed by the younger comic book fans in your family. Here’s hoping that the series continues – and that AWA/Upshot expand their all-ages offerings; on this evidence, it seems that they have a knack for bringing out excellent material that’s just as strong as they have for their mature titles.
