The truth about Veil leads even more eyes to focus on the strange young woman found wandering out of an empty subway tunnel. Passions run high around her as the body count increases, but is she just an object of desire-or a force to be reckoned with in her own right?

    The art has become among my favorite in any comic I've been following, and the fact that Fezjula handles the coloring is also very impressive, as his palette makes for a unique experience. I felt the pacing and dialogue was a step up from last issue as well, and I can't wait for the final issue. I have no doubts that Veil will be a serious contender if not clear-cut winner for my favorite miniseries of 2014. Read Full Review

    Veil #4 is a solid issue that creates the perfect metaphor for Veil's struggle with her identity, which can be a gruesome reality, and those seeking to control her for their own gain. This issue worked wonderfully in so many ways from the artwork capturing the gruesome reality with its details to Dante's continued role and what he represents. Veil has been a surprising series for me and one I've been enjoying throughout, and with the stakes higher than ever it seems like next issue will be an explosive one. Read Full Review

    I, for one, can't wait to see how this all ends, and while I'm already a Rucka fan, I'll be keeping my eye out for Fejzula's name from now on too. And if you've missed out on these great issues, keep your eyes peeled in December when the TPB comes out and be sure to pick one up. You'll be glad you did. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 31, 2014

    Writer Greg Rucka builds off last issue's horrific transformation, at last (sorta) revealing what Veil really is. He then uses the issue to position his finale, setting up a devilish standoff that's sure to end poorly for someone. That said, as good as Rucka is this issue, artist Toni Fejzula is even better. This may be his best work yet, each page sinister and captivating in its imagining. Read Full Review

    This is a series with a clear point-of-view, even if its script isn't yet the most compelling thing. As Rucka's plotting grows to match the artists' worldbuilding, 'Veil" could really excel. Read Full Review

    Veil moves right along here and some big moments definitely happen, though they're of different natures. What we see with Dante is definitely useful as it starts to expand a different part of the world that has been edged around so far. Dante in particular really comes across well and I have high hopes for him, and fears that he'll be offed before his time. We also get some good stuff with Veil as her transformation is really doing a number on her and watching her struggle is certainly making for some hard times for her. The series moves smoothly from the last issue to this one even with the delay and it continues to be an intriguing and definitely beautiful work that I want more of. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Jul 30, 2014

    Veil #4 continues marching toward its conclusion, this time with far more going on in the story and many more answers happening. What really hurts the title though is that its characters are not that compelling and the writing is just average. I'm curious about how the book is going to be ending, but honestly, at this point, I'm not all that excited as I should be after all these issues. Read Full Review

    It's not bad, not by any stretch of the imagination – the gorgeous artwork and solid writing see to that – and now that we know what's going on, the final issue will be the true test of whether or not this transpires to be an essential series. But for now, I still can't conjure up a reason to rush out and buy it. It's interesting, certainly, and hardly a rip-off, but I can't help but feel your money might be spent more rewardingly elsewhere. But we'll see come issue 5. Read Full Review
