    Copperhead is like a fresco, from far away, it's quite beautiful, breathtaking and resonant. Up close, you may notice some cracks that take away from the overall image. In the bigger picture, hose cracks are inconsequential even if they are noticeable. Copperhead is a lot of things and for the most part, all of those things are good. Really good. If you’re not on board yet, you need to be. Read Full Review

    But that's about it. Otherwise, Copperhead shows no signs of slowing down or riding the coat tails of its Breakout Hit Honeymoon. The story, characters, and universe in which the series resides continues to get more interesting and enjoyable with every issue. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Dec 15, 2014

    Godlewski tops his art every issue. His layouts in Copperhead #4 are incredibly cinematic, especially his action and the way he centers the panel to obscure the peripherals. Ron Rileys colours are especially impressive. They stand out without ever appearing overly bright or garish, especially in the darker, shadowy scenes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Dec 15, 2014

    "Copperhead" #4 continues to be a great comic. It successfully combines the genres of space opera, western and mystery, and it pays unusual attention to the inner lives of its characters. Faerber and Godlewski weave into the action observations on tensions between social groups, the desperation that injustice can create and dignity and humanity of all kinds of people.

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Dec 12, 2014

    Really, not a ton happens this issue to drive the who-killed-the-Sewells plot forward, but thats exactly what makes it so enjoyable. Instead of running full steam ahead into capturing the desperado who did this, Faerber and co. delight in building this little mining town into a science-fiction haven and laying the groundwork for what will surely be inter-personal conflict between these nascent characters. The action and character development alternate like a mosey to a sprint leaving the atmospheric dust lingering long enough to relish every page. This is shaping up to be a special book, one that reckons to be a hell of ride on a trip-fantastic of a horse. Read Full Review
