    Lastly, I have to commend Spencer for taking the story to a forbidden zone of sorts. Im speaking about the subject of pedophilia within the institutions of religion. Im not going to go deep into it because the subject is heavy. Im happy that Spencer is exploring this heart wrenching subject with this story. It isnt the centerpiece of the story, which is nice, but it is an important side note to the story. Not many media (TV, Movies, novels and even comics) want to touch the subject because its taboo for a lot of people. Kudos to Spencer for at least raising awareness to this horrid phenomenon that has plagued our churches for God knows how long now; subjects like these need to be explored, and need to be told.

    If you're expecting Bedlam #4 to be another issue full of blood and gore, think again. What you're going to get instead is punched in the face by the mystery that Nick Spencer has been building behind the scenes. Bedlam is here for horror fans in general, but now shows that it has a strong story behind it good for any fan of mystery, suspense and psychological thrillers. For those who may be a bit squeamish, you should probably keep walking past Bedlam. We wouldn't want anyone hurling on the comic when Spencer and Rossmo do bring us another gore centric issue.

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Feb 18, 2013

    In the introductory arc for "Bedlam," Fillmore Press has yet to make contact with other killers in his newly-rehabilitated state, and the moment that he meets Eric, and perhaps sees his old self Madder Red in Eric's eyes, is the part of the denouement that I'm looking forward to the most.

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Feb 12, 2013

    Riley Rossmo is now on PETA's hit list thanks to last issue and you don't want to miss what atrocities he and Nick Spencer commit this week. While this issue does not have the ferocity of issue three or the grotesque behavior of issue one I still had a good time reading this book. I said some choice four letter words and was very much shocked. Read Full Review

    When this arc most probably concludes in the next issue, I really do not have a clue where this series will go. This is not a concern in the slightest, in fact it just makes me even more interested in this series. It now seems like there are endless routes as we are not only interested in just the one character now, but the fringe characters are also worthy of our attention. This is a very exciting time to get involved in this series, and I for one am sure that it is going to lead us in some thrilling directions in the not too distant future. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 14, 2013

    If you’ve followed my reviews for this series then you know that I’ve pretty much loved it from the first page of the first issue. It’s such a unique comic and even though it’s technically considered a “cape” book, it shows that you don’t need to continue the same damn formula that the “big two” have been pumping out for decades. Spencer and company have created something that is infinitely more interesting than any other superhero comic book out there and because of that I long for it each and every month. You never really know what’s going to happen in the next issue of a comic which is why we continue to come back month after month, to find out, but with this series I really can’t even come up with a guess and that’s fucking awesome.

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Feb 14, 2013

    I can't wait to see what the next issue brings and how/when/if the biggest reveal of all will ever come. And lets not forget the artwork, it's detailed but chaotic at the same time and makes you feel like you're actually in a crazy mans head which is the perfect setting for this book!. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Feb 17, 2013

    Upon opening the book, one would think nothing could top the image of the burnt priest in terms of sheer shock. But as the naked angel enters a hospital carrying an arsenal, Spencer proves that this is a book that will continue to top itself. Enter at your own risk. Bedlam has quickly risen to be, arguably, the best horror comic on the market today. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Feb 18, 2013

    While it's hard to disparage the Batman and Joker relationship right now (give the incredible conclusion to "Death of the Family" in the Batman title this week) Spencer has crafted a stimulating twist on it, taking it somewhere deeper and darker he probably couldn't have gone with DC's characters. Bedlam is a sober, moody, chilling and graphic bit of business, which, depending on your receptiveness to such things is either great praise or a dire warning. Read Full Review
