    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Mar 2, 2015

    Abhishek is the artist here with Zsolt H. Garisa on inks, Nanjan Jamberi on colours, Rob Steen on letters, and the main cover by Ed Benes and Dinei Ribeiro. We don't have any action scenes with Dejah in this issue, but we do get to see her act as the daughter of nobility she is, all poise and decorum even in the face of an impending execution. I think the artists really nailed that part well. The flashbacks to the days of the 1860s war were also good, with cavalry charges and infantry assaults all over the place and some great characterwork with Carter and Clark. Good art as usual.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 24, 2015

    John Carter: Warlord of Mars #4 is a quality comic book that makes me glad to be a fan. It's to the point with just a hint of epicness and enough personality to warrant a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Gregory L. Reece Mar 2, 2015

    All in all, I really like what is going on here. I am a fan of Burroughs and of John Carter. I don't need anyone to change things up to make them more appealing. And I can't wait to see how all of this is resolved, how John Carter along with Dejah Thoris, Tars Tarkas, Woola, and their new companion, a great white ape, manage to save their world from the invading hordes of the Kahori and the madness and vengeance of Captain Joshua Clark, Union soldier and veteran of Manassas, and Sherman's March, and Appomattox, and the Indian Wars.
