    Bendis and Mack make for an amazing team. They are firing on all cylinders here. I can't say enough about this book. Oh, except that I truly can't wait to read it all together as I'm sure it'll be one hell of a rewarding experience unlike anything I've ever seen. Read Full Review

    Cover, in terms of the over-arching narrative, continues to be a slow burn. While one could argue that little of interest happens in this issue in terms of pushing the story towards a natural conclusion, the beauty of Cover is not found in the plot, but rather in the delivery. Read Full Review

    This is a comic that artists will love, and those who wish they could make art will fawn over. Read Full Review

    Cover feels like Brian Bendis's love story to the comic industry....while also being an okay spy story. Read Full Review

    Bendis has an interesting concept on his hands, but the story and art feel a bit to thin to justify the $3.99 cover price. Read Full Review

    With art as incredible as David Macks its difficult to not recommend Cover but with a plot so slow and dialogue so ubiquitous, literally any line could be said by any character and it probably wouldnt change anything tonally; Cover #4 is a comic for the die hard Bendis and Mack fans or people who want a spectacularly pretty comic to show their friends.
