    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon Jan 9, 2015

    It's those subtle nuances that create attachment to the story and characters for the audience and are in turn a big part of BirthRight's success. While this issue didn't really expand the mythos of the BR universe very much, it was great at fleshing out the cast a bit more. You could probably skip it and still not really lose your place in the narrative overall, but for the dedicated amongst us, I wouldn't recommend doing that. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 7, 2015

    With the conclusion of Birthright #4 it becomes that much harder for the impossible to seem as such when Mikey and gang come face to face with the first of the mages he seeks. Fantasy continues to meet reality head on in a way which pulls no punches. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 7, 2015

    With its setup firmly out of the way and its characters on the move, Birthright's latest eases off the flaming swords and fisticuffs in lieu of some welcome familial development. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jan 6, 2015

    Love when I finish a comic and the only thing I can think about is wanting more. Williamson and Bressan definitely deliver that feeling with their final page as this story kicks it into high gear. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Katy Rex Jan 7, 2015

    Joshua Williamson is a great storyteller, and the pieces that have been woven together, little by little, are finally starting to shape something tangible. The lead up has been intriguing if not fast-paced, but I promise, this is the issue where your focus will finally pay off. That said, if it's been a minute since you read #1-3, you'll thank yourself for rereading them so you can jump right back in without all the "oh yeah" and "wait, when did that happen" stuff.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jan 7, 2015

    BIRTHRIGHT continues to be one of the more impressive books under the pen of Joshua Williamson, who also has several other hits under his hat. Conceptually, this book is nothing short of brilliant and while this issue doesn't pay off on some of the stories told within it, it's still a wonderfully crafted issue both in the writing and with the art. BIRTHRIGHT is easily one of the best new on-going series and something people should check out if they enjoy a bit of fantasy in their comics. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Jan 8, 2015

    Only four issues in and Birthright is another home run for Williamson. Fans of fantasy, drama, or mystery will be pleased with this title; a bit of something for everyone. World building is a complicated feat and these creators are developing two in one book masterfully. Pick this comic up! Read Full Review

    Good action, good ending, keeps building. Will Mikey's father and brother find out what really happened to him!?

    Yup, this is going to be a slow burn, but that might just be the best approach in this case to get the most out of the past and present stories. The strongest part is definitely the gas station. The cashier mistook Mikey for a veteran, it reminds me me that he also left the world as a child, and when you return to the place and people you knew as a child you often revert to that mind state, it would be appropriate for Mikey to have some temper tantrums or childish naivety.
