    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Sep 25, 2016

    Lucas Stand remains one of the most impressive, pulpy auteur projects that has landed for a while though, and it just drips Kurt Sutter's twisted, violent Americana from every pore. Vietnam is the great American ideological battlefield of the 20th century and its used to great effect, even if surprisingly it's not the finest issue in the pack, when perhaps it should have been. It does add important layers to Lucas' character and mission however and, consistently, you may wish to see Lucas grace a TV or movie medium one day after reading this. Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Jim Taylor Sep 22, 2016

    As always, Jesus Hervas and Adam Metcalfe struggle to elevate the comic through sheer force of artwork, and in Lucas Stand #4 they bring the oppressive humidity of the jungle to life with stunning effect. But even they stumble a few times, as a number of panels require multiple viewings to fully understand what's happening in them. This muddling of art and narrative takes away from the gutsy attitude and bravado at the heart of Sutter's creation, qualities that would be far more winning were it not for the flaws they fail to conceal.

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 20, 2016

    Lucas Stand #4 slows things down and juggles too much which makes for a muddied and unsatisfying issue. The father/son stuff works to make us understand Lucas a bit more, but the issue is biding its time to kick start the climax. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Kylee Sills Sep 29, 2016

    With only two issues left, I'm not sure what the end-game is meant to be, nor do I know how they're going to appropriately wrap up a series where the main character ran a family off the road to their deaths in the first issue and continues to minimally atone. We probably won't find out next issue, as Lucas Stand heads to old school Hollywood. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Zeb Larson Sep 27, 2016

    Speaking of which, we've only got two of these left, and I'm not entirely clear how this is going to be resolved. I guess that counts as suspense? I just don't see an end game. Read Full Review
