    So there you have it. Another great issue. The cover itself should sell most readers and it certainly delivers what it promises. We have a new dynamic duo. The fires of war are raging. And both sides are in for a great fight when the army of Talons take on Bane's team of killers. The only drawback of this issue is the fact that it couldn't feature everyone. I know that sometimes that's a good thing, but I would have really liked a scene with the G. C. P. D. and the Penguin. I'm sure there will be much more of that in the last two issues, though. Overall, this was not quite as good as the previous issue, but it was still great. And definitely the best book of the week. Read Full Review

    Now I'm doing this review pretty late in the game, and I wish I hadn't because this is a really good issue.  I'm digging the Arkham War aspect of the book of course, but Bane's slide into Batman's shoes is so much fun.  The whole draw of this book is to see all the big baddies at once, and duking it out, but the Talon subplot is really interesting to me, and I hope it leads to a resurgence of the Court of the Owls.  Can't wait to read the next issue.

    Forever Evil: Arkham War #4 is a fun, action-packed melee. Writer Peter J. Tomasi entertains with the interactions between Batmans rogues gallery and minor characters take the spotlight for a change. Scot Eatons art puts the reader right in the middle of the action and never lets up. Each issue escalates the action from previous issues and Arkham War #4 raises the stakes even higher. If the final two issues of this series are anything like the rest, readers can expect one explosive conclusion! Read Full Review

    If you want to see Batman's villains crack each other's skulls then this is the comic for you. Very thin on plot, heavy on action, exposition, and sleek art. This book is recommended for anyone looking to get into this series or those who just enjoy good action. People determined to have the entire series and loyal fans will no doubt buy this issue, but they will most likely be very disappointed with the lack of forward momentum this book has.

     For however much you can appreciate this story for being so ridiculous and over the top, you could also knock it for those very same reasons. As with the rest of the issues, I'm straight down the middle on this one, somewhere in-between "this is ridiculously awesome" and "this is ridiculously stupid." Weird book... really weird book.

    And that's all I have to say about this book really. The art is decent, and the writing unremarkable, though I don't blame Peter J. Tomasi for a workman like performance in a comic that is ultimately not that important in the grand scheme of things, and probably doesn't really deserve his full creative talents to be wasted on it anyway. Get it if you want to see villains fighting each other, but don't expect anything other than that. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Jan 8, 2014

    The plot continues to barely putt along but we still get quite a few pages of the rogues gallery brawling. If you're satisfied with just the imagery of super villains at each others throats then this will be worth your time, but it's really starting to try my patience. Read Full Review

    For a pretty cool setup from the last issue, this issue just seems dull. Outside of some good art, it is just a filler story and just states things we already know. There is no real take away from it to carry forward, except the fact that Cobb is back and working with Bane. The cover is pretty cool though.
