    Steelworks can be rough around the edges at times, but makes for a worthy addition to John's superhero resume. Read Full Review

    Basri and Cifuentes deliver fantastic art throughout the issue. The visuals are as thrilling as the story and I love the character designs and how compelling the action is. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Sep 7, 2023

    Steelworks is a series that started with a very strong first issue but has lost a step with each subsequent one. The big ideas continue to fall further into the background. That isnt to say the series cant regain that complexity. But it doesnt happen in Steelworks #4. Read Full Review

    Steelworks #4 brings one mystery to a close and begins a new one when John's new invention puts him and all the supers in the crosshairs of a vindictive industrialist. Dorn's pacing, dialog, and character work are solid, but John uses multiple red herrings in the last act, and it gets confusing. Read Full Review
