    As quiet and unhurried as this section of story is, it's simply astounding how it raises the stakes and builds tension for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Apr 25, 2018

    At first I was afraid Days of Hate would be a tad gimmicky by using the tumultuous election and post election politics as a platform for vitriol and hate without understanding. But writer Ale Kot and artists Danijel eelj and Jordie Bellaire continue to imbue so much love and detail in this world and characters that it is apparent they have bigger and better things in store. Days of Hate #4 is an exceptional indicator of this trend. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome May 1, 2018

    As per usual, there is an overarching message etched purposely in each of the interactions these characters have with each other and their world-at-large. Days of Hate #4 opens with a quote from Kathryn Bigelow regarding the insidious nature of fascism. The issue responds in kind, reminding readers that fascism succeeds not when citizens are policed, but when citizens police themselves on fascism's behalf. Read Full Review

    While the art style matches the tone of the narrative, I feel that Bellaire's colors can take me out of the story at times. I do like her work on this book, but as with issue 2 aspects of the palette choices just come on very strong. Aside form that one minor point, this was a pretty enjoyable issue. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 29, 2018

    Days of Hate #4 is threatening to drain its good will and tension by losing its scope and allegorical drive on near-mundane interpersonal drama. I know a pseudo-fascist national security agent isnt exactly a mundane thing, but his threatening edge is being lost, even if this issue is primarily an intimidation tactic of his. In any case, I can still recommend this comic for the visuals and how well its story is told, but I wouldnt call it required reading. Hopefully this series will pick up soon. Read Full Review
