    I love the Question. This may be my favorite story I have ever read featuring the character. The story is great and the art by Cowan is the best he has ever done on this title. Thumbs up all around. Read Full Review

    The Question: The Deaths Of Vic Sage #4 was a pure pleasure to read. Not only is this story topical, but it delivers one of the best stories I've read this year. I'm sure that Denny would be proud at how Lemire, Cowan, and Sienkiewicz have carried on the legacy of his classic Question series. Read Full Review

    This issue keeps us at a distance, never quite letting us get into his head, and isn't that the best way to handle a Question comic? Vic Sage has never given away his answers easily, and that's not changing any time soon. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Brake Sep 18, 2020

    Lemire, Cowan, and company have crafted a complex tale about racism, injustice, and the nature of evil in the world, that offers its readers no simple answers or happily ever afters. This series shows the heights that the DC Black Label imprint can reach when creators are given free rein to tell complex stories with characters (other than Batman and Batman related properties!).

    When combined with Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz's art, this issue packs an admirable punch"one that begs the entire miniseries to be reread again. Read Full Review

    I mean, I think I mostly agree with the concepts here, but as a story about the Question, I find myself unsatisfied. This didn’t feel like it progressed the character in a meaningful way. I really enjoyed the art, but I think that’s because it just made me think of Denny O’Neil’s run.

    A faacinating conclusion to this story that leads you not to a simple answer, but to a newfound drive and a will to face the Question we all encounter in ourselves.

    Art is excellent. Writing is strong, dialogue is natural. Some bits are mysterious and ambiguous but that is in the nature of this character.

    A solid wrap up to one of the most unique takes on The Question since O'Neil and Cowan in '87. Or at least since Rucka's take on Montoya as the Question.

    I jumped into this not knowing a lot about the question as a character. My largest experience is really with Renee Montoya in the role. I enjoyed this series and loved how relevant it was to today.

    Loved the tribute in the back. I haven’t read O’Neils run but I have heard wonderful things about his work with this character and definitely will he adding to my list.

    Huh. I was kind of confused by this finale, but I guess that was just the charm of Question as a character, who is quite confusing in of itself. For a book that was started back in November of 2019, it is incredibly relevant today with the extreme climate we have regarding authority here in the United States. Welp, what a coincidence, but it works with the story.

    By the end of this issue, you can see a clash in styles between the two legacies of Question, the hard-line Ditko Question of the 60s, and the zen appeal of the late great Denny O'Neil of the 80s. By the way, a touching tribute to Denny O'Neil at the end, Rest in peace. How Lemire plays between these two distinct versions of Question was very engaging in my eyes, I real more

    This story was certainly something. I think it could've been executed much better than it was. I'm left with a feeling that, well, I'd rather just re-read Denny O'Neil's run. The kindest words I could give this issue is that it was a valiant effort, but I don't know, it misses the mark for me, no matter how socially relevant it is.
