After discovering carnage in the midst of the Brakebills library, it's clear that there is something much bigger at hand than the rivalry between the hedge witches and the traditional magicians. Someone, or ?something sinister is at work, and Dean Fogg will finally have to reveal the truth behind opening the doors of Brakebills to the hedges... and what it means for their future.

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Feb 7, 2020

    Overall, I really enjoyed readingThe Magicians #4 and was left with my jaw open with the big reveal at the end of the comic. It's something completely unexpected, but it works within the story. The various other elements included in this issue made it stand out from the rest. I'm just eager to see what kind of chaos the villain of the series will cause. I haven't felt this excited about a villain since reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and seeing Voldemort come back in full form. It's incredible to see that any work of literature still has this effect on me. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 5, 2020

    The Magicians #4 ended up being a thrilling transition from the carnage issue #3 dropped on our laps last-minute. This issue moved with momentum, pulled no punches with the truth to this situation, and really did give us something that trumps the squabbles between students of Brakebills and hedge witches.

    This issue might lean more heavily into the more macabre elements of the book, allowing the interpersonal relationships to come through only as necessary, making the entire book feel more genuine. Read Full Review
