    Big Comic Page - John Wallace Feb 16, 2016

    When (not if, when) you buy these comics, you will be buying an instant classic. Normally I try and wait until the end of at least the first story arc before I make that kind of judgment, but every issue has been of the highest standard and this one is no different. Please go buy it. Read Full Review

    Huck is a comic like no other. Frankly I don't know or care if anyone else likes it because it's their loss if they don't. For me, this is the comic I run to read. This is the comic that reminds me why I love this medium and it's the first book in the longest time to give me those butterflies in my stomach when I pick up the issue. Simply put, it's the best goddamn comic out there. Read Full Review

    This series keeps getting better and better. The plot has just taken a HUGE twist, and I am beyond excited to see where Millar takes things. Of course, I’ll always be on Huck’s side. Tom sucks. That being said, this issue is one of the best yet. If you haven’t gotten into this series, now is your chance! Start reading before we delve really deep into the plot. Read Full Review

    Huck #4 was easily one of the best comics I've read from Mark Millar in the last couple of years, with the writer showing the type of storytelling that made Kick-Ass such a hit. This would all be complemented by stunning visuals and along with some gripping developments there was more than enough to leave any reader returning for more. Read Full Review

    This is the best instalment yet thanks to the incredible art and tonal shift of the book. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Marvin Salguero Mar 2, 2016

    Huck is one of my favorite books coming out right now. Millar has been creating a great character in such a short time while Albuquerque and McCaig continue to put out great work. He's hoping our boy is okay. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard Feb 22, 2016

    Huck is an interesting book, precisely because it follows an uninteresting formula. It's good versus evil, or more accurately, wrong versus right. But it plays with those notions and deliversthem to their fully realized extent. Grey areas abound in our life, and when we readsuch a positively-charged comic book, it's only natural that some of us wouldbe left feeling a little dirty and a more than a touchdismayed. Can a do-gooder really do all of the good? the more cynical of us may ask. It's a difficult question with an even more difficult answer. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Fred B Mar 1, 2016

    Huck #4 continues to widen the plot and mysteries to Hucks story. This issue broadens the world for both Huck and the reader. Millars writing is consistent and competent, and being backed up by Albuquerque's art and McCaigs coloring creates a new, heartwarming book that is about a superhero, but is a break from the mainstream tropes coming from the big two.

    Huck has been nothing if not an entertaining read, yet despite its enjoyable story there's yet to be any sense of real momentum. Well, check your ticket stubs and secure your brain luggage because the momentum train has left the station. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler Feb 17, 2016

    Huck #4 is the definition of uneven, especially when you consider how rock solid the book has been up to this point. The exposition in the beginning might be necessary, though, and the conclusion of the issue is about as thrilling as a family reunion can get. Still, it's overall not as satisfying a read as the rest of the series. But with things looking to really hit the fan in #5 it'll be interesting to see how the pace progresses and how Huck will react now that his back is against the wall for the first time.

    This issue felt a bit predictable, more that I was hoping from this story. I had an idea in my head how this issue was going to handle some parts of last issue, and none of that was touched on, but the reveal at the end of the issue felt a bit too “on the nose” for my taste. I love the artwork, but I just was expecting MORE from this issue’s story. I think that things have built up quite a bit so far, and we got a lot of good background on Huck’s mom in this issue, but beyond that, I wasn’t really happy with the payoff at the end. I hope that this book bounces back in a big way next month, because I really expect more big things from Millar, Albaquerque and company. I hope that this is more just me holding this book and these creators to a higher-than-necessary standard and not that the book is really slipping in quality, because I really enjoy the premise of this book, and have really enjoyed reading this book this far. So hopefully things turn around in the story, and the art continues to impress, or my opinion of this book will continue to slip.
