    AIPT - Franco Giacomarra Jan 25, 2022

    DC vs. Vampires #4 is another stellar entry in a series that serves as a reminder that zany combinations and bold genre experiments are not just well suited to superhero comics -- they are perhaps what they do best. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jan 26, 2022

    DC vs. Vampires #4 is an issue that highlights the best and worst of the series, showcasing Schmidt's art and the odd pacing of the book. The book is worth reading for the art alone, and theres still a chance the books mid-stretch could shift and come together, but its still too early to tell. In any case, the book is a fun, pulpy book that works in its best moments as a showcase of Schmidts art and Tynion and Rosenbergs writing of specific character interactions. Read Full Review

    Schmidt delivers some great visuals throughout the story. The art is filled with great action and energy and the character designs are amazing. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 26, 2022

    The worst thing about this series is there's so much more to go. I want to find out what happens now! If this was collected, I'd be glued to my couch reading it in one sitting to enjoy and find out what's next. But, each issue is played perfectly leaving readers hanging and guessing as to what's going to happen next. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Carl Bryan Jan 26, 2022

    I appreciate the series on a lot of different levels. With no true killings and no true reveals, at least in my reviews, however, there is one item of note. The main cover, which features Superman and Wonder Woman attempting to subdue Batman, indicates a Clark transformation. Unless I miss something, he has combated magic/occult pretty successfully in the past, despite being more vulnerable to it than human beings. He's the saving grace in all of this so far, so how's he being duped into thinking Batman and Green Arrow are the vampires? Unless he's pulling an Andrew Garfield on us… whoops! I digress… Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 25, 2022

    DC Vs. Vampires #4 is more of a setup issue than the previous one, but it still was a good read.  It seems that the head vampire has a connection to Gotham, and Rosenberg and Tynion are having fun setting up clues and swerves for the readers to rack their brains over. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 25, 2022

    DC Vs Vampires #4finally unifies Batman and Green Arrow in their battle against the undead but also takes things from bad to worse with the vampire invasion. With the series' "first act" essentially completed, it remains to be seen how the Dark Knight and the Emerald Archer escape this predicament - and who else will oppose or join them. Read Full Review

    I genuinely loved this one. Rosenberg writes all these characters in a super fun way. I can't believe I'm so positive over DC vs Vampires.

    Terrifically written and drawn. i fully believe is going to an evergreen story. In spite of its silly title (and premise) it’s just such a great DCU-wide Elseworlds. I hear Rosenberg’s voice in the dialogue well more than Tynion’s and I’m glad he’s getting so much work at DC lately. Nobody’s out there exactly raving about him (yet) but he gets those characters, he provides them the freshest takes in ages, and he seems to get better all the time. I’m sure Tynion had a lot to do with the plotting and I think he’s a fine writer but the dialogue in this issue is beyond him. Schmidt’s fantastic here and was an inspired choice. This was a really good issue of a surprisingly compelling series.

    This was a beautiful issue due to Schmidt's art and inks. The story was pretty good and allowed a lot of players in this story to come together.

    A nice issue, though it is currently falling under the very expected route of breaking the JL and keeping Batman alive. I have said before and will again after DCeased this holds less weight, because that book really focused on the character interaction while this focus just on the pick up line (main points like Batman vs Green Arrow, and JL after Batman).

    Eh. Another "Earth-D" story, where most heroes are just DUMB. Gullible is written on the ceiling for JLA. Great plot for fans of Batman and his omniscient detective skills superiority (me). Otherwise?? Writer Matthew Rosenberg (obviously NOT James Tynion IV) makes weak plot work by making most of JLA into incompetent fools. While second-stringers JLA are obviously NOT the Justice Society of America, still the JLA members gained some mental skills in 60 years. Tempting but improbable to view JLA characters as that incompetent. As our fearless leader might say, "Come on, man." And Batman would not be ready with yellow weapons, kryptonite, etc., from a rogue JLA? (Eyeroll.) Now EVERYONE who has read Batman in the past 80 years KNOWS that he wo more
