What is this newfangled thing called "marriage" and why are so many people willing to sacrifice the traditional sex cave for exclusive partnerships? Fred and Wilma leave Pebbles and Dino with the Rubbles for the weekend and head out to a marriage retreat to find out all they can about this new fad they've bought into.

    In spite of this,The Flintstones continues to be an excellent comic. Mark Russell and Steve Pugh have found a great rhythm with the humor and drama in a way that is always entertaining. Color artist Chris Chuckry makes it all come together with a palette that can be both natural and zany at the same time, reflecting the wild but human world that makesThe Flintstones a book everyone should check out.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Oct 5, 2016

    After a bit of a step back with issue three, this issue is strong. While there is often some idea as to what is coming next with the titles of the next story, each issue, much like the show upon which it is based, is self-contained. Characters come in and out, but one could pick up anywhere and be okay. If you are a fan of excellent art and pitch-perfect, clever and intelligent writing, The Flintstones is a must.

    If you were interested in this new version of the Flintstones, but haven't picked up an issue, now is the time. If you drifted away from the series, now is the time to come back. If you been reading all along, be glad that Russell has finally found the emotional voice for the series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 5, 2016

    A commentary on marriage laws and domestication turns out to be more enjoyable than expected, with some interesting turns and fun moments that add up to an entertaining read. Some characters seem to be inserted to comment on the scenery, but in all it's a complete story where even incidental moments are relevant to the comic book's theme. The art is always great, and if you still can't deal with it at issue #4, then you should probably pass this comic by. For my part, I'm totally sold on it. It looks great. Read Full Review

    A thoughtful and humorous breakdown of marriage and prejudice, with a wink at education and slavery while we're at it. This issue is dense without feeling cramped.

    I finally understand the direction of this series. We will get each month a one-shot story that deals with a specific topic. Sometimes it will be relevant and funny (like this one), sometimes no so much (like the previous two issues). I particulary love how Mark Russell sometimes places a completely unexpected critic on a topic that's not the main one. For instance, in this issue that covers marriage, we get to talk shortly about schools' education.
