Fighting for his life thousands of feet above the ground, Skyman faces off against the people who made him a hero-and if he fails, he falls! Literally! They tried to make the perfect weapon, but they got a hero instead. And Skyman intends to act like one, even if it costs him his life!

    So Skyman comes to an end for now, a story worth telling in my opinion. They tried to make the perfect weapon, but they got a hero instead. That is the selling point and I love how this series has taken that concept and built upon it to such an extent. At the end of this issue you would want to see where Skyman ends up next in Dark Horse's world. Read Full Review

    Skyman #4 is a solid conclusion to the series and what it lacks in terms of dealing with the fallout with the Skyman Program and the international community, it makes up for it mostly with great action and character development that shows what differentiates Eric Reid from the others and makes him a true hero. And the developments at the end don't just guarantee we will be seeing more of Skyman but makes me look forward to seeing him in action once again since this issue, and this series, was very enjoyable.

    As I come to a close of this series, I find myself a little bit sad. I have been enjoying this run, and now it's over. I have discovered really good talent in Fialkov and Garcia and I really hope to see some more of them as time will only tell where Skyman will go next. Here's to hoping that he won't stay gone long.

    Skyman could have gone on for another issue or two, but Fialkov writes a tight story that sets a lot of things up for the future. Eric Reid is a character we need to see more of and soon. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 16, 2014

    With most of this issue made up of the fight between the good guys and the bad guys, it works well in that regard since Manuel Garcia has some great double page layouts that are quite appropriate for characters involved in flight. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Apr 15, 2014

    I may have mentioned this before but if Skyman had been more of an espionage oriented comic with Eric slowly uncovering the true nature of what he was doing or deep undercover or maybe even already aware of the groups atrocities just slowly developing a conscience, stirred by Midnight's example that might've been at least a bit more of a stand out, especially as superhero espionage feels like an underserved concept on today's market. As is Skyman isn't a terrible series it's just not a very memorable or standout or memorable one, and certainly not one that adds much to the black sky mystery box. If you're curious or are looking to get in on the ground floor of this new Captain Midnight/Skyman/Ghost/Occultist/X universe Dark Horse is making more power to you but for others there's just not a lot to recommend here.
