    What is there to say that hasn't been said? If you're a Firefly fan, this should be on your pull list already " the series as a whole is a wonderful continuation of the characters you know and love. It just feels right, and that fact alone is a hell of a lot more than certain other TV-show-to-comic adaptations can make claim to (we're looking at you, 24). Read Full Review

    Once again, we have gotten another A+ issue of 'Serenity: Leaves on the Wind'. It's just like Mal and the gang to find themselves in a trap and now it'll be very exciting to see how they get themselves out of it. As if one River Tam wasn't enough, now we'll get to see how they fair against a whole group of her. I can't wait! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nick Nafpliotis Apr 30, 2014

    This issue did had a few minor issues (like Zoe's part feeling a bit tacked on), but otherwise, it was another fantastic read. If you miss 'Firefly' as much as I do, then this series isn't just a good fix. It's exactly what we've been waiting for (besides the series continuing on Netflix, obviously). Read Full Review

    I'm hoping that any Firefly/Serenity fans would already be reading this series, but if you have somehow missed it, now is the time to go get the back issues and catch up. It's nice to see (most) of the crew all back together in this issue. We are also left with a number of cliffhangers where the stakes are extremely high for the crew of Serenity and their friends" or should I say, allies? You'll know why when you go get the book. Go! Seriously, go already. I need to talk about this with peoples! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 30, 2014

    With only two issues left after this, Serenity: Leaves on The Wind has made a lot of progress in exploring the lives of the Serenity crew now that they exposed the Alliance. We've seen the political side of things, the scientific, social, and even emotional when it comes to how the crew interacts with each other. Whatever comes next I hope Zack Whedon continues to show what the Firefly Universe has to offer its fans past the TV series and movie. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio May 1, 2014

    While this issue might move too quickly, with everything falling into place almost too easily for the characters, there's no doubt this is a strong continuation of the series. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 11, 2014

    Although Kaylee earns the cover for this issue neither she nor Inara are given much to do other than express the crew's concern of Mal bringing in the Operative. It will be interesting to see an example of what River was meant to become as next month's issue will also give us the conclusion of the Operative's fight with another of his ilk. Worth a look.

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Apr 30, 2014

    Leaves on the Wind has been a wonderful continuation of a widely praised franchise, and the creative team have definitely continued to do justice to the world of Firefly. Despite any minor criticisms, issue #4 was a fun read that really helped push the plot forward. The ending was incredible and will likely lead to some intense action in the future as we quickly approach the penultimate issue. It should also be noted that in the letters section, there is talk of starting work on another miniseries to continue from this one! Huzzah! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 6, 2014

    All in all, Serenity: Leaves On The Wind #4 is an okay comic book, but disappointing as a Serenity story, missing a lot of the joie de vivre I associate with Mal and his band, featuring art that is well-rendered, but overly familiar. Read Full Review

    So yeah put me down as mixed for Serenity: Leaves on the Wind issue 4, better than last week but nowhere near as good as it was at the start, if you like Firefly already well you probably think I'm a jerk and are typing up some angry comments for me to read but hey feel free to buy Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #4 (at least you're having fun and reading something you enjoy right?) anyone else not recommended.
