    There's so much more to say about Prez #4, from Fred Wayne's destruction of literature to the "social media wars" (a brilliant, dark gag that satisfactorily explains why Twitter is still around), but if you cut out everything else, this is a book about the utterly meaningless horror of warfare. And for all the severed arms and grim plotlines in the main DCU, this quirky little piece of satirical genius far more successfully captures the real cost of harming your fellow man.

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard Sep 21, 2015

    In the newest issue, we see Beth Ross settling into her role with a fair amount of confidence and disdain for the system, but more than anything else, I'm enthralled by the view of the legislative terrain that this comic book provides. The idea of hiring your old fast food boss as Chief of Staff or being just as frustrated with the mass media circuit even though you're the President of the United States of America adds a perspective that's rarely made available to us. It makes politics seem a little more conceivable and the hope for progress a little more possible. Read Full Review

    All in all, while I found myself wanting some more in terms of long term plot, I also really enjoyed the one of a kind feel this book has. I think if people are missing Chew (since that schedule is weird) or just want a refreshing book, this is one to check out. I like to see DC expanding the tone of their line; to me, this is a win for them Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joel Bowers Sep 19, 2015

    This issue of Prez is filled with current topical issues such as authority brutality and islamophobia, which is crazy how accurate it is since these issues are written way prior. While this issue was not near as entertaining as the others, some of the topics were good. The subplot was dull as well. The art was great, but attention to detail was missing. The story did not feel as developed especially when they are trying to introduce a new character such as War Beast. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Sep 22, 2015

    While this issue is a bit more somber than previous, it still has enough bite and wit to be entertaining and sets up some intriguing plot events. Read Full Review

    A lot more scattered than previous issues, but still thoroughly hilarious and insightful. There's not many issues left to wrap the first arc up though so a solid direction needs to get in gear.
