    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Apr 12, 2016

    Negative Space is a wonderful read, especially if you are looking for something a bit different from the norm. Its a truly bizarre story that I would have loved to have seen the pitch for, but the final result has been crafted with so much care and attention that something quite unique has been created here. At only four issues long I can concur that the star that burns twice as bright has indeed burned for half as long in this case, but the emotional resonance between Gienis lines and colors and Lyndsays writing make Negative Space an unstoppable tour de force that must be both read and experienced.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Apr 13, 2016

    Negative Space hits on all marks.  It's a powerful comic with a message, but it doesn't beat you over the head with it.  In lesser hands, this would have turned into a Monsters Inc ripoff where the Evorah found they can feed off of happiness better than depression.  Instead, it became so much more.  This cements Ryan K. Lindsay as an expert storyteller capable of truly incredible character work.  They feel like real people and that's the greatest compliment you can give to someone that made all these characters up.  Owen Gieni has crafted some of the most terrifying monsters seen on the stands today, made even scarier by the fact that they rarely speak.  They come out of the water in silence and just start killing.  The scenes with the humans are far more chilling though.  Seriously, go check out that panel with the keyboards.  I would not be surprised if that's stolen for a horror movie in the next couple years.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 13, 2016

    Negative Space is that kind of hard read that is so worth it because of what it can do to alter your view of your life and the world around you and to allow you to bring change into it. This final installment delivers everything it needs to and then some, making for a fantastic capping point. Lindsay and Gieni really did some great work here that may have taken a bit to get there with some of the gaps between issues but in the end it's the produced work that will remain. This is a series to snap up in trade form in a big way, devour, and then get into serious discussions with friends about as there's a lot to peel away and dig into with it. Very recommended.

    We The Nerdy - Jack Johnston Apr 13, 2016

    Negative Space #4 is a perfect send off for Lindsay and Gieni's twisted tale, with everything that has made the series great to date condensed down into a single issue. If you haven't read the series yet, I strongly recommend you ask your LCS to track down the issues or wait until the TPB is released as Negative Space is truly a tour de force. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Apr 18, 2016

    With an off-putting, yet fitting ending, Negative Space #4 culminates in one of the greatest depictions of depression that I have ever come across in fiction. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given Apr 22, 2016

    The conclusion in this issue is gut wrenching. It shows a hero that can't find peace in his actions of heroism. A manic depressant individual that should be pleased about what he has accomplished but doesn't seem to get it. This is not your everyday action hero either in appearance or attitude. All in all, a refreshing change from the norm in the world of comic books. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Apr 13, 2016

    This series has been good from the start, however, metaphors asides, the conclusion doesn't work for mefrom Guy's point of view. This maybe a hangover from my superhero sensibilities. Along the way, I have grown to appreciateLindsay's writing style and applaud his efforts in bringing mental health out of its own Negative Space. Read Full Review
