    Not going to lie, this issue wrecked me, and no other series is as rewarding and at times harrowing to read month in and month out, making this an easy recommend to any and all comics fans. Read Full Review

    I was really hoping we'd get back on track this month, and we have. We Live #4 is an intense ride, from start to finish, and there's an impossibly ugly twist in the last sequence that really twists the knife. Read Full Review

    While I'm not expecting this series to give a lot of hope towards its objective simply because of the nature of it, but what we've got here just feels even grimmer than I expected at this point. There's a lot to like in this issue in how events unfold and what role everyone plays, which are pretty varied, but at the same time it feels like it's barreling toward a bad end where you're going to feel bad even if the core characters you're rooting for survive because there's a whole lot of other people that are going to lose their lives here. It continues to be an intriguing book on a lot of levels and I'm excited to read it in full later on while anticipating the final installments to come before that. Read Full Review

    This series is so emotional. It’ll break your heart, especially because you get to love the characters. Can’t wait to see what la coming

    Extinction Day....the kids rush to the train that will take them to the evacuation ship, but (of course) there's interference. Chaos ensues. The train scene has the same overtones as the beginning of Snowpiercer. Well told, very well drawn. And I enjoy the coloring...very bright and almost cheerful, which is odd for an end of the world book.

    One thing I did not indulge on past issues is the QR codes inserted in each issue offering a musical soundtrack to key scenes in the books. I scanned a code for this book, and the combination of scene (art and story) and audio was really neat. The codes link to YouTube videos, so they should be out there for a while if you get in late. Fun to check out.

    Kind of all over the place. It's a cool story and doesn't need to zigzag so much. Just tell it straight and that'll be enough.
