    No, I won't make that deal. I can just wait. It will be a long month though. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Feb 12, 2020

    This is a horror story first and foremost, but its also a story of a mother desperately doing her best to raise her daughter in a safe and loving environment against insurmountable odds. The balance between this and the horrors that unfold within the pages of this book make it a story that delivers heart, soul and horror in one wonderfully crafted package. In my humble opinion, The Dollhouse Family is a title that is going to be ranked alongside the greats of Vertigos prime in years to come. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 12, 2020

    Gross and Locke deliver some amazing visuals in this issue. The monster in the beginning is disturbing and the rest of the issue is filled with beautiful imagery and thrills as things lurk in the shadows. Read Full Review

    The most chilling of the Hill House line so far, The Dollhouse Family #4, continues to tighten its grip around the lives of Alice Dealey and her daughter Una. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Feb 12, 2020

    One thing I don't get is why Jenny sent that guy to kill them if she still wants Una. It doesn't make sense to me unless interference by her or the Dollhouse was why they survived. But anyway, we get to see the fate of Joseph, how Cordwainer got into the Dollhouse, and Alice's greatest fear come true. Creepy, potty-mouthed Jenny is awesome yet again. And so is this book. I keep saying in every review of every issue that it goes in directions that you never could have guessed, and I'm saying it again here. If it wasn't for one specific ongoing (Daredevil), The Dollhouse Family would be my favorite book in comics right now and I consider it a Must Read. It's a great story that makes you constantly say "WTF?", creeps you out a bit here and there, and the art is a great match for the story being told. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jan 1, 1970

    Overall, I'm not as in love withThe Dollhouse Family #4as I have been in previous issues and I knew that would be hard after last issue's ending. That said, the way this issue ends, with gloom and all the shock that I appreciate horror comics for, was satisfying. While the narrative is still uneven and I'm still lost when it comes to the historical moments in the issue, the series is still worth a read, if not to just see where it's going. Read Full Review

    The exposition of this entry might have been required for the overall series, yet the experience mostly felt like it was treading water. Read Full Review
