The Challengers tackle undead barbarians and a zombie-dinosaur stampede way down under in otherworldly Skartaris. Good thing they find that flock of pterodactyls, too-turns out to be handy against rogue agents setting up a super-weapon! Unfortunately, the Challengers also find their HQ destroyed and their predecessors missing. Plus, their borrowed time might be up, because the hourglass tattoos are on the fritz. All in a day's work for the Challengers! (Face palm!)

    There is some great dialogue in this issue and the team seems to be coming together in a really organic way. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Aug 17, 2018

    NEW CHALLENGERS #4 is an exciting, character-driven story with a lot of fun science-fiction action backing it. It especially succeeds with Bethany, the POV character, and her introspection about her current near-death situation. The story, though, does feel a bit rushed at times. It covers a lot of important story points, but never rests on any for an extended period of time. Read Full Review

    New Challengers has been a little slow to unfold, but it's turned into a compelling story about life, death, and what people would do with a second chance. Read Full Review

    Scott Snyder and Aaron Gillespie are doing a great job of twisting the expectations of the original Challengers of the Unknown and the impact that the Dark Multiverse has had and continues to have on the rest of the multiverse. Some of those changes involve the Mountain and I think that the story is about to go deeper into the next issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 17, 2018

    New Challengers #4 is another good issue for this New Age of Heroes title. The characters are further fleshed-out, and the danger they find themselves within is both tense and exciting. The art team contributes some solid work, and the book earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Once again, there's a crazy cliffhanger with this issue. New Challengers has a classic old school feel with plenty of reasons to highly anticipate the next installment. This has been a fun ride so far. Read Full Review

    New Challengers has deemed itself to be worth a look see if you're interested in the New Age of Heroes lineup DC is offering, or even have a past connection to the Challengers of years past.  Some great action shots by the art team push the book into an area of over the top levels of fun almost worth the price of admission alone.

    The story may be confusing, but the art is simply beautiful. Marion, Florea, and Ribeiro are a match made in heaven. At no point did this get boring to look at, and if there's anything to be said, this art team needs to be attached to an ongoing Green Arrow title. Read Full Review
