    Alienated #4 (Spurrier, Wildgoose, & May) is a raw, intentional exploration of a hurt boy lashing out in a way he finally has the power to do. It is a story equal parts provocative and necessary in its reflection of reality. Read Full Review

    A difficult and distressing story-line is depicted with superb art and compassion by everyone involved. The cover should carry a content warning however, the creators have excelled at telling a difficult, yet important, narrative. Read Full Review

    Each issue of Alienated has been better than the last, taking the story in unexpected directions and really building on our understanding of the characters. We begin to understand the reasons why each character feels ‘alienated’. This issue covers some dark territory which is rarely addressed head on, but Spurrier does it with a surprising sensitivity towards the subject matter. An incredibly difficult series to describe, it’s a definite must read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 7, 2020

    This is an issue I wasn't quite prepared to take on, but I'm glad for it. The message is strong by its end, but it's a heavy subject that may affect others differently if they're not in the right mindset. Once again though, Alienated proves it has its thumb on the pulse of being a teenager who is lost, forgotten, and going through deep emotional journeys they think they're alone in. As the alien Chip proves, these three characters may be lucky they're not alone. Read Full Review
