The Ward # 4 finds both types of Kirton's citizens in danger. Will the actions taken by Natalie Reeves for St. Lilith, the city, and maybe even the world(?) be viewed as a solution or another side effect. Read Full Review

    A comic book that features a highly infectious disease forcing victims into quarantine may not the at the top of many readers' pick lists, given the events of the last few years. It's a curious way to cap off a series that ultimately celebrates the healthcare workers who look after us. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Sep 10, 2022

    The Ward #4 is a solid ending to the story. I like how it ended up with a pandemic parallel because I think that gives it more impact. My main criticism is that while the main plot is straightforward, the side plots have a lot of detail that the series does not have time to explore. Much like the chaos of the ER, we are plunged into accepting whatever is thrown at us. In this case, it works, but I cannot help but wonder if one or two more issues might have let the creators flesh some points out more cleanly and less abruptly. Read Full Review
