    Justin Greenwood delivers some beautiful, brutal art in this issue. The tone of the art perfectly complements the story and Greenwood lets the art tell a visceral and intense story in itself. Read Full Review

    This is the issue that drives home the loss and anguish inherent in this fantasy series. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 5, 2020

    Crone continues to hit all the right marks with me as the tale unfolds. While you can see how a lot of it is unfolding and where it'll go, there's a delight in seeing each piece fall into place, each new reveal, each new ramification. Culver delves into the villain's monologue well here and having his backstory exposed is important to him in how he views himself. But Bliss is where the story shines and I'm excited to see how this all wraps up. Justin Greenwood is at the top of his game here and delivers a fantastic looking book with Simpson that makes me thoroughly enjoy each and every page of it with all of its details. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Feb 9, 2020

    Epic fantasy with a number of novel twists, compelling characters who shape the plot, not the other way around, and a fascinating critique of a genre in desperate need of close examination, and a clever use of a modern cause in a fantasy setting. Crone #4 has it all! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 31, 2020

    While much of the issue fell a little short for me, the final pages truly hit their mark. With the choices now laid before Bliss, she makes a decision that is difficult to see. Where this story goes next month will be interesting. While it hasn't managed to keep to the heights I saw in its first issue, I have hopes that next month's conclusion will see it pay off on the emotional story that I saw promised in there.

  • 4.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Feb 5, 2020

    While each panel might be competent enough on its own, the overall trajectory feels like the events of this installment were created by throwing a dart at a wall full of typical sword and sandals tropes, resulting in a lack of any narrative cohesion or fresh perspectives on the formula.
