    SUMMARYWitchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland #4 is a solid penultimate episode that builds up anticipation for the conclusion by providing crucial answers, and in turn, bringing together all the elements that have played a factor in recent events. The wait for answers regarding the Unland was well worth it, and the use of past events was successful in uncovering itsmystique while giving a context to current characters' situations. And I could appreciate the relative complexities of the story, and since I've been enjoying this series from the beginning, it's even more satisfying. I don't know how the rest of this story will unfold but at this point I have the utmost confidence that it will be entertaining, and I can't wait for it. Read Full Review

    This book is doing tone right, this book is doing fear right, this book is a delightful read for fans of Grey's quips and rationality. This is a book that feels like it belongs in the Hell Boy universe. However, the story is still very confusing and I'm not entirely sure they can wrap it up in only one more issue.I'm ready to be proven wrong. Read Full Review

    Overall, it was the atmosphere of this one that I enjoyed the most. I know that's a vague sort of compliment, but the general mood of this issue clicked. This is what I think Witchfinder should feel like. Read Full Review

    All that being said, this is still a pretty decent read. The new information that we do receive is well framed with the present action, keeping the narrative from feeling like one big exposition dump. The artwork by Tyler Crook is, as usual, gorgeous and terrifying.I must admit, however, that what started out as a great series (from my perspective, at least) has me a bit worried heading towards the last chapter. My guess is that it will be great, but it could just as easily go off the rails, as well.I guess we'll find out in a month. Read Full Review
