    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Nov 2, 2021

    Static: Season One #4 kicks off the back half of the limited series by emphasizing the strength of Static's bond with his friends and family, along with a high-octane rematch with Hotstreak. With only two issues left in Season One, I can't wait to see how it all ends and hopefully read Season Two whenever it drops. Read Full Review

    This is one of the most consistent books on the shelves, and it's all because of the frontloaded work. Read Full Review

    Statics revival is absolutely electric! Thanks to Vita Ayala, ChrisCross, Nikolas Draper-Ivey and AndWorld Design, this series is truly the shining beacon as to what Milestone is and should be going forwards and if it continues this momentum into Season 2, then it'll be nothing short of a smash hit.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Nov 16, 2021

    The new age of Milestone Comics is soaring high, and Static is leading the way not just for the imprint but for comic books as a whole. There is a fully unique energy that permeates this book on so many levels, from the gorgeous distinctive artistic end to the deep resonating realistic and emotional character level. We need a whole lot more of this book for years to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Robert Reed Nov 2, 2021

    Static: Season One #4 has a nice combination of intimate family moments and killer action. It just stumbles a bit in gluing it all together. Read Full Review

    The action is so unreal in this book. Seeing an impact frame in a comic book is so surreal

    THIS SERIES GETS BETTER WITH EVERY ISSUE!!! PHENOMENAL. Issue four continues the balance being a superhero origin story & having social commentary. You're never given too much of one or the other. Furthermore, the story continues to improve on the Hawkins family dynamic to the point where even if they all don't agree with each other's decisions, they support them fully. There's nuance, love, understanding, & trust within this family. From their conversation about Virgil potentially hiding out until things down die to when his sister gives him the jacket containing glucose pills, etc. Besides that, the issue does the other usual superhero things we're use to seeing but it feels different, and that's all due to just the characters being used, more

    Theres a lot to like here as usual from this series.

    The dialogue remains a lot more realistic than most comics have the balls to go for, especially depicting inner city areas. Its a nice and refreshing touch that adds a lot.

    The characters are all written on point, where we see Virgil and his "squad" for the first time. I appreciate this series taking some characters from the original series and making them work in a new context.

    This series packs plenty of story in its issues, which is MUCH Appreciated. In a time when a lot of comics stretch out otherwise simple plots to take up full issues and quick reads, this one makes you feel like you're getting your moneys worth out the price. It does this while more

    Pretty good, but I feel like this comic is still trying to establish things that it has already firmly established, which slows the pacing down a bit.
