Abbott has hit rock bottom-no job, no friends, and no hope against the mysterious forces that continue to plague Detroit. But that doesn't mean she's giving up.

    Comics: The Gathering - Doug Warren Apr 25, 2018

    The artwork has remained consistent and topnotch through the run up to this point, and the writing and story keeps getting better, more engaging, more exciting, and more enthralling. If you want to know what a perfect supernatural thriller looks like, well, this might be the closest I’ve seen. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Apr 27, 2018

    Like its predecessors, Abbott #4 succeeds by balancing provocative contemporary thematic elements with brilliant artwork, a tightly written script and one of the most memorable, artfully constructed main characters in any medium. This series started strong, but each issue continues to raise the bar. Whether or not we deserve her, Abbott is the hero we need to help us make sense of life in America in 2018. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 1, 2018

    The monsters hit the page like they just ripped through a dimension into our world.  Jason Wordie's colors create this eerie mist around them, taking the form of misshapen demons, as if they were followed by death itself.  Abbott feels like it has a lot of ground to make up in a very short amount of time.  This is the penultimate issue, so hopefully things get tied up nicely by the end.  Since Elena has some personal experience dealing with the supernatural, I expected her to be more attuned to this kind of story, handling it more like classics of the genre like John Constantine, Cal McDonald, or Mr. Rhee.

    It's a whole lot of filler for a good bit of killer at the end. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 7, 2018

    Abbott #4 continues to show signs of a great comic hidden within its depths, and I would even like to see another volume of this series somewhere down the line. However, with badly flawed plotting, pacing, and dialogue, I cant recommend Abbott #4. Give it a pass. Read Full Review
