From the writer of two of the most critically acclaimed DC Comics of all time (THE FLINTSTONES and EXIT STAGE LEFT: THE SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES), it's a mind-bending new look at DC's new alien teen sensations...the Wonder Twins! It's spring and love is in the air-even for the Wonder Twins!-as they try to adjust to life on Earth and as interns for the Justice League. After Jayne makes an impressive showing at her new school's science fair, the twins both get dates that don't go as planned but the bigger threat may come from Jayne's best friend Polly Math, daughter of reformed villain Filo Math.

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 8, 2019

    The art by Byrne is tops. He really nails each and every scene perfectly. I love his art more and more with each issue. This is something special indeed. I'm sad there are only two more issues after this. It's a real shame, in fact. Read Full Review

    Some groundwork is also laid for a larger plot thread, which is developing as the book goes on. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene May 8, 2019

    While out on the town, Zan and Jayna realize how horrible the teen date night scene is. Using the innocent minds of two aliens, Russell subtly dismantles so many stereotypes of men and women on dates, while at the same time reinforcing this sibling bond between our heroes.This comicis impressing on all fronts. Withback to back Eisner award nominations for Best Writer, Mark Russell is making a name for himself and it's only a matter of time before Wonder Twins gets the recognition it deserves. The writing is excellent, the artwork is consistent, and there's such a healthy balance of fun and depth that more people are bound to jump on this bandwagon soon. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 11, 2019

    Another delightful issue almost loses focus, but the wrap-up at the end brings everything together so well that it can be forgiven. Another jolly good Wonder Twins adventure! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dispatch May 8, 2019

    Even though this wasn't my favorite issue of the series, nor my favorite issue Russell as written overall, I still recommend the issue to any Mark Russell fan as well as anyone interested in a clever read. It's humorous, insightful, witty, and chalked full of unique messages that will make you stop and ask some great questions over a cup of coffee. Pick it up at your local shop. I think you will be pleased! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece May 8, 2019

    Wonder Twins #4 feels like a rare misstep in what has otherwise been an exceptional miniseries. Heres hoping Russell, Byrne, and Sharpe stick the landing in next months conclusion. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 8, 2019

    The issue has a nice message about the silliness of the whole "friendzone" line of attack, but it feels overly broad just like Russell's guest-starring issue on Harley Quinn. It's beating the same few points home for the first issue, but the characters are likable enough that I barely noticed. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 8, 2019

    Stephen Byrnes art is a perfect complement to Russells story in both tone and look. There is a lightness to the art that makes it engaging to the reader. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 8, 2019

    Wonder Twins #4 gave us a fun twist to date night. Many things can go wrong, and this creative team got bold with the situations Jayne, Zan, and Polly got themselves into. It was commendable that at the same time they were able to also get in some solid character development for a character you didn't expect to hold as much relevance as she has so far.

    Outright Geekery - Antonio Pedro May 10, 2019

    Maybe it's because I've recently had the idea of love and romance stuck in my head, but this was a fun issue. It has some problems, sure, but if you're looking to have some fun with colorful artwork, enjoyable characters and failed teen romances, you could certainly go to worse places for it. I give this issue a recommendation, go ahead and pick it up. Read Full Review

    There's some fun to be had here, and the art is beautiful as usual, but the superheroics take a back seat to the humor, and the humor in this issue lacks the sharpness of the first three. Read Full Review
