    Ryan Benjamin again keeps the art work looking incredible and straight out of an episode of Kevin Sorbo's Hercules or Lucy Lawless' Xena if you're nasty. The Amazons journey is bright and the worlds they've visited continue to look vast and majestic. Read Full Review

    The artwork is perfect, evoking my teen memories of several comic fantasy artists.He seems to have taken the designs of John Buscema, the textures of Joe Kubert,and the figure drawing of Gil Kane, and blended them into a unique style thatseems both new and familiar at the same time.

    The Amazons deserve greatness. Odyssey Of The Amazons #4 isn't it, but at least it's now trying. Read Full Review

    In these opening panels in particular, rich earthen tones are set against light-soaked backgrounds to good effect, grounding the reader in the world of Valhalla just as easy as any mention of Thor, Odin or Freyja ever could. All the same, the Norse Gods give the plot a certain flavour, an air of mysticism DC fans will feel treads the border of popular fantasy. What is perhaps a weakness is that Grevioux fails to put that same pedal to the floor when it comes to dialogue. Read Full Review

    While I am far from a fan of this series, this issue is the best of the series.  The story is straight forward, the art is good and it begins the setup for a grand finale that may just be the end of the world. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, I don't like this issue. The art is fine for the most part and I like the mythology and history. But it is a slog to read because there's no human connection. There is no reason to care about anything. Read Full Review
