    Swords of Sorrow #4 is a wonderful turning point for this event, as although it's been engaging so far, the events in this issue blow all that out of the water. This is aided by some insightful developments, with some great speculation heading into the penultimate issue. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Aug 12, 2015

    A short rough patch aside, Swords of Sorrow #4 unites its cast members under a banner of freedom and anti-heroism. Gail Simone and Sergio Davila flat out have fun bouncing characters, genres, and settings off each others with funny one-liners and small set pieces in what could have been a table setting issue. This crossover continues to get better with age even if its characters continually lose track of and joke about what era they are in. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 12, 2015

    The story here advances in a few different ways, very much needed ways in fact. What we get is some background context to the larger fight at hand which in turn makes the Traveller a much more accessible character. And that's quite important overall to making this feel more real in a sense. The fun part of the book though is seeing all these different groups coming together, initially with this little oddball ragtag group that feels like they're way in over their heads only to beef it up with more arrivals of real power and note. But having read most of the supporting miniseries, you know the powers and abilities of most and how well they can factor into the larger fight, making me hope that as many of them get their chance to shine as possible as the real fight gets underway.

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Pollock Aug 12, 2015

    A decent series that does a lot to show that an all female cast doesn't have to stick to "girly" stories. The issue does suffer some pacing issues and is clearly more set up than anything else. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Aug 12, 2015

    I have seen a lot of the Swords books, whether it bethe main story or thetie-ins and Iam sorry to say, I am getting a tad bored with it all. Some of this is down to the pacing of the series. I understand with six issues for the main story thereis plenty of time to spread the number of tie-in books outbut has this strategy worked? Look at this book for example,Red Sonja and Jungle Girl are best pals, yet have only recently met in their tie-in book. I wish I had the answer. It might be a simple case of too much product, a charge that a lot of the comic publishers can be guilty of, not just Dynamite. I will keep reading (and reviewing) this series if only because to fail to do so would mean I have wasted my time. I only hope the penultimate and final issues are worth the effort. Read Full Review
