    Stephanie Williams and Vita Ayala have pit Nubia against an insidious foe and the political tensions that come with leadership. Alitha Martinez and Darryl Banks continue to showcase the power and resilience of the Amazons, their home, and their ways with uncompromising lines. The collaboration on inks with Mark Morales, Martinez, and Banks is untraceable but the mastery is unmistakable. Vibrant colors from Romulo Fajardo, Jr. bring intoxicating wonder to every panel.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jan 18, 2022

    This is a beautiful issue filled with bold colors and intricate drawings. The action scenes are well done and interesting. And the emphasis on character expression and form is emotionally connective. I felt transported with the turn of each page. Read Full Review

    Nubia & The Amazons #4 is perhaps the best chapter of the mini-series yet, with gorgeous art and a powerful message of compassion and forgiveness. What more could you ask from aWonder Woman tie-in? Read Full Review

    It's great to see same-sex relationships front and center in this book, and the internal politics of the island are highly intriguing. It does still seem like it's largely place-setting, but the conclusion sends Nubia off on a solo quest that leads to some spectacular visuals and a strong cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 19, 2022

    The series really feels like it's beginning to find its rhythm with only a couple of issues left to go in the series. The creative team feels like it's finally coming together. It's too bad it all comes to a close at the end of the winter. Given the right space to explore matters further, Williams, Ayala, and team could build Nubia into something remarkable. As it is in the fourth of six issues, the series juggles many disparate elements and moods quite well. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 18, 2022

    Nubia & The Amazons #4 spends a lot of time sharing and talking in the present to deal with a Medusa who "might not be so bad if given a chance". Meanwhile, readers are treated to a flashback so bizarre, misplaced, and pointless, you have to laugh or risk coming to tears. Perhaps Trial of the Amazons will straighten all this out, but right now, it's a mess. Read Full Review

    Nubia and the Amazons is spinning its wheels a little with the council but narrative threads are coming together and Alitha Martinez is allowed to show off how well she can draw fighting scenes.

    The backstory finally revealed how Andromeda and Nubia are connected and Bia certainly has a point about Medusa being initially the same as the souls waiting for their rebirth on Themyscira. I'm looking forward to seeing how Medusa's storyline is going to be resolved and to what mayhem that undoubtedly leads in time for TotA.

    This series is kind of like beer. It starts off not tasting very good, but the more you drink, the better it gets. It's still a bit slow to get better, but it is markedly improving as it continues. This issue really did make me care about Nubia and Andromeda, so it is successful. I just still kind of find the sheer amount of talking to be a bit of a slog.

    I Review Comics Aug 6, 2022

    I reviewed Nubia & The Amazon #3 awhile back and gave it a scathing assessment. Issue #4 does read better this time around. The story may land a satisfying conclusion depending on the direction the creative team goes in the final two issues. On the positive side of this comic, Nubia has a few solid action sequences. This change allows Alitha Martinez and Darryl Banks to flex and show that they can do more than draw bland characters spewing even blander dialogue. There are also some meaningful insights revealed about the characters of Nubia, Andromeda, and Medusa. On the positive side of this comic, Nubia has a few solid action sequences.
