    Blue Book#4 continues to deliver the healthy dose of Paranormal mystery the series has brought to the comic books. It is a solid showcase for an ace group of creators at the top of their game. If this is begging of a new True Weird sub-genre, then sign me up! Read Full Review

    Blue Book is doing something that's not easy in that it's trying to do something new along the way with something that's familiar. A lot of what makes this work are Betty and Barney and how they're approaching all of this and the fantastic artwork that we get from it. With this issue, we get to peek behind the curtain as to what happened on the ship in a big way, if it actually happened and is a real event in-book, and it's fascinating to watch because you have to make so many leaps for it to have happened that way. There are a lot of things to like in this issue and I'm excited to see how Betty processes re-learning what she went through and how it impacts events going forward for not just her but Barney and everyone else.

    The lead story features an extended sequence regarding the repressed memories Betty claims she experienced during her time on the UFO. The conversation in the comic is at least somewhat unique, or at least dives into more detail than what can be easily found through a quick Google search. Read Full Review
