    Barrier #4 is a faster-moving issue than the previous installment, and it delivers more engaging character drama while showing the ingenuity of our leads. The art continues to astonish in its creativity and beauty, and this series earns itself another strong recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    With eye-popping artwork and a few stomach-churning panels, Barrier #4 speeds up the series' pace in a very welcome turn. Read Full Review

    Like the last few issues, the artwork for this series has been quite incredible. At times it's easy to consider the work bland, but when you look closer at it, you'll realize the depth of detail and emotion being shown by our almost nonverbal characters. It's quite brilliant and supports the story better than I've seen anywhere else. Read Full Review

    Vaughan's work with Martin and Vincente is still amazing in Barrier's vibrant colors and grusome realistic human remains. Read Full Review

    Once more a very good story ... The barrier goes up once more but they are down in another part (The mouth to mouth).
    I wonder what is the alien plan in all that. I fear for both character but I want to read the end of this book.

    Cover - Like it ... And with a little link. 1.5/2
    Writing - I liked it very much even if I would have loved some translation for the spanish part ^^ 3/3
    Arts - Really really good. Man love the artwork at the end. 3/3
    Feeling - Very lucky to read this. 2/2

    Yeah, sorry, I don't know what the fuck is going on here. Sorry Brian K. Vaughan, I need to understand the dialogue in my comics. I get that by making the audience illiterate in a certain language it puts us in the place of the characters. And I guess there is a theme emerging of understanding humanity beyond simple language barriers? If so, that's too simple, and this is too frustrating to read. And, to really get to the nitty gritty, Marcos Martin's work on "Private Eye" was better than this. So, yup, it was okay, but ultimately disappointing.
