    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard Jun 13, 2018

    With issue four, Wolfman and the creative team have once again raised the stakes with the introduction of Ravens mother. Even though she has longed to have her mother back in her life, this will no doubt make even more trouble for the heroine. Sometimes in comics, when new characters are introduced, it can detract from the story; however, with a creative team like this, it only heightens the already palpable tension.   Read Full Review

    This issue gives even more insight into Raven and Arella, a relationship I hope to see more of in this series. Read Full Review

    Overall, we're a third of the way through the 12-part miniseries and we're right on track for a book to be even better than the last. Look forward to continuing this adventure. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 26, 2018

    The overall plot is still very vague, and Baron Winters only seems to be hanging around as a way for Wolfman to tie two of his favorite creations together. However, as long as Raven remains a compelling lead character and her family dramas remain the focus, I'm going to keep enjoying this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier May 1, 2018

    I'd said before that Mhan and Kindzierski's artwork is suitably moody for the material at hand, though I've come to realize that is only partially true. They do great with Raven and her environs, but far less so in the scenes set at Baron Winters' mansion. They seem rather flat, in a very Silver Age sort of way. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kelly Gaines Apr 25, 2018

    My impression as of Raven Daughter of Darkness #4 is the same as it's been for a few issues now. There's too much noise and not enough substance. There's so much going on without exploration that the whole thing starts to feel disconnected and uninteresting. I love Raven, and Angela presents a perfect opportunity to explore sides of her we don't often see. I can't say I'm optimistic, but issue #4 was slightly more readable than #3, so maybe there is hope. We'll have to pray to Alice's fairytale god. Read Full Review

    If you ever wanted to learn what made Raven's mother the way she is... look no further, but prepare to be underwhelmed.  Otherwise, there isn't all that much new... or even necessary here.  This feels more and more like a project needing a story, than the other way around. Read Full Review

    The longer this limited series goes on the more it feels like the real mystery here isn't what is going to happen to Raven, but when is Wolfman going to start writing a story worth reading? At least the art is nice, as always. Read Full Review
