    The issue is a slow burn because it's going to erupt in the next issue. The ending here is so damn interesting that I can't wait to see where it goes. This is another fine issue in a great comic book series. Read Full Review

    With an ass-kicking protagonist, Scarlet #4 is a delightful change of pace over any of the previous issues " something that was desperately needed for this arcs' penultimate issue. Read Full Review

    This is the best issue of the series so far. However, that isn't really saying much. I enjoyed the opening scene. Bendis' dialogue is quite good and I love how long it is. Bendis takes his time and it works. I feel like I do have a sense of Scarlet's personality now. But the ending is pretty uninteresting from both a character and plot standpoint. Most of the goodwill earned by the first scene is gone by the end of the issue. Read Full Review

    The argument can be made that we're looking at someone thrust into the limelight and seeing the outcome of those choices through their own eyes, but its a tough sell when the character themselves isn't particular engaging. The suspension of disbelief takes quite a pounding throughout and, despite claims that this isnt a political piece, theres a real lack of clarity in the delivery. Read Full Review

    -I loved this issue. It was by far the best in the series.

    -Bendis proves himself to be a master of tension and buildup in this issue.

    -This issue had an excellent confrontation to open with. It all felt very cinematic.

    -This issue truly proves Scarlet to be one of Bendis' best heroines. From her character to her writing, everything is perfect.

    -The emotion of this issue was pretty awesome.

    -All of those scenes where Scarlet says goodbye to everyone were just amazing. They genuinely left me speechless.

    -I thought Colonel Orlando was good villain. He felt very menacing, and his writing was spot on for a villain character.

    -The art was amaz more

    Aside from the usual things you would expect from one of these Jinxworld books, such as a few pointless pages, this was not so bad.
