    IGN - Dan Phillips Oct 31, 2007

    When this issue was all said and done, I would have much preferred to watch the comic book equivalent of a four-person play featuring Snapper, Bruce, Clark and Diana than sit through been-there-done-that action scenes, explanations of Oolong Island's new sovereignty, and cliche-riddled dialogue between the four lame monsters. It's a good thing Giffen's penchant for characterization and dialogue is such a pleasure to behold, otherwise this series would be a real snooze-fest. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Nov 3, 2007

    What The Four Horseman amounts to is a marketing ploy targeted at hardcore DC heads. The lure of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman smacking the Four Horsemen around in a one-shot, even a six issue series, would appeal to somebody like me, but that audience will find their heroes sadly lacking and being undermined by DC's precious 52 ciphers who are all important because DC told you they are. As far as I am concerned, DC has committed fraud by false advertising. I will never trust them again. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 31, 2007

    I can't see any reason for this series to exist except to undermine Black Adam's killing of the Horsemen, proving yet again that only the Big Three can truly defeat a major menace. Skip this nonstory and wait for issue 5 or 6 when Giffen finally tells a story and tries to wrap everything up. Everything so far has been a waste of space. Read Full Review
