    Outstanding issue. The fact that we are back into the main story and we got to check in with all of the parties involved, was an amazing and seamless juggling act. And then we have the twist at the end, which speaks to goes Williamson's great storytelling ability.The best of his writing was when Brennen and Mikey were having the discussion over why Mikey believes the mages are evil and what they did that was so bad on Terrenos. The back and forth was great, and the questions Brennen asked were exactly what I would have asked if I were going to risk my life for something I did not understandi. Read Full Review

    The story keeps evolving with the characters naturally. We know the direction some characters are heading in. Questions are asked, answers are given, and greater mysteries dug up now that intentions have been made clear to some extent. Read Full Review

    It's taken a while, but the many freewheeling threads that make up Birthright have begun to feel cohesive. Joshua Williamson has done a great job crafting a solid sense of direction over the last few issues, focusing less on the then and more on the here and now. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Dec 10, 2015

    In the final pages of the book, however, the energy returns. Not only do the brothers come across their next target, but readers are presented with a reveal that is really fantastic. Not only does it have excellent narrative weight and some serious shock value, but it is also the best visual moment of the issue. Bressans design of the final page, along with brilliant colors from Lucas really help pull the issue up in its final moments and reinvigorate the excitement of the series as it leads into the next issue. It is that ending tease that gives indication that what lies ahead will surely impress. Read Full Review
