    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton Mar 2, 2021

    Geoff Shaw is a master of breaking the panel styles into textures that feel like overlapped layers of a comic book collage. Dee Cunniffe's colors offer layers of pixelation and filters that create the timeless appeal of characters from different worlds sharing a canvas of soft swirling colors and stark contrasts. John J. Hill's letters create a distinctive voice for every character and the narrator most of all. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 25, 2021

    Crossover #4 features its heroes pulling off a daring heist, as well as several surprising connections to another of its creative team's endeavors, including the use of the Paybacks. Given the ending of this issue, as well as its "post-credits" scene, the series is about to kick into another gear. And I can't wait to see what happens on the journey to the Crossover site, as well as the potential appearance of other comic characters. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 24, 2021

    Crossover #4 is a great book. It does a lot of world-building but keeps things exciting, and the end just keeps throwing more and more at the reader. Cates, Shaw, and the rest are doing a marvelous job of making this feel like a giant crossover between the comic universes, even though that would be so very illegal (Disney is known for being very litigious). Everything about Crossover is amazing, and this book keeps showing readers why that is. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Feb 23, 2021

    Whew! A lot to go over. Crossover not only has a stunning plot that is worthy of any comic book reader's attention but also a precise and coordinated composition of many talents in order to best portray the colliding of two different realities. The goal is to immerse the reader into this event and how it would truly affect normal, everyday people. Every new issue will be a new recommendation from me for this series because of the bold proposition delivered with awesome execution. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 24, 2021

    Shaw continues to deliver some awesome visuals throughout and there are some great character and plot moments that the art teases at but lets the reader imagine. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Mar 3, 2021

    Both add to the overall story while helping the uninitiated become acquainted with the next crossover element. It comes from Cates previous work, and while he alluded to it last July, I don't want to spoil the surprise. Overall, Crossover's ever-growing narrative keeps readers coming back for more.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 23, 2021

    Crossover #4 probably isn't the best issue of the series, but it also serves its purpose, which makes it kind of hard to give a rating to. Read Full Review

    Cates really starts to find a more concrete voice as the narrator in this issue, and it absolutely does wonders for the book. Read Full Review

    A good move forward on the needle. Still missing that big action scene or close of any arc. Read Full Review

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone Feb 24, 2021

    Crossover is probably my favourite comic coming out of Image right now and although this wasn't the best issue of the series it certainly showcases why people should be reading it. Big scale storytelling with world ending events and original yet familiar characters, all depicted beautifully on the pages. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Perry Feb 23, 2021

    While the latest issue of Crossover shouldn't convince any diehard Cates fans to jump off, it doesn't seem to do much to convince new fans to stick with it. Maybe if there was promise of more Madman-like reveals it would be worth sticking around, but the book's final reveal seems to solidify that this is a work by Cates about Cates' body of work.

    Multiversity Comics - Joe Skonce Feb 26, 2021

    "Crossover" #4 makes some interesting artistic choices but lacks a clear message and leans too hard on tired tropes. Read Full Review
