    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Mar 8, 2019

    Its hard not to argue that this is one of the best comics out there, and easily the best fantasy comic around right now. If youve not picked up Die yet, and Fantasy is even remotely your bag, this comic needs to be in your collection. Or you could wait for the trade, though youll be waiting until June for that.

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey Mar 5, 2019

    If it isn't clear by this point, you should be reading DIE. Gillen, Hans, and the rest of the creative team have managed a series that is packed with action, and heart. It's clear that they don't have any intention of slowing down until the final panel of the final book. I cannot speak highly enough of this series and based on the last few pages of this issue, I can't wait to see how it ends. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Mar 9, 2019

    So you've probably guessed it"I liked DIE #4. I think the series as a whole is fan-freaking-tastic, as a matter of fact. When great writing meets incredible art, the result is usually something pretty special. Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans have a true comic book gem on their hands. I personally cannot wait to see how this first arc concludes, as well as what the future holds for our heroes lost in the world of DIE. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Mar 6, 2019

    You pair all of the above with Hans's gorgeous artwork, of course you're going to get a critical success. It's hard to extol Hans's enchantingly haunting artwork, that is evocative of all of the famous fantasy stories, while having a uniquely modern flair that is absolutely engaging. If you're not reading Die already, I'm telling you it's not too late to start. This is a standout title that demands to be read, and I may like Ash's Dictator Voice, but I need more folks to be experiencing the majesty of this series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Mar 5, 2019

    The secrets of Die are really only just beginning to reveal themselves, but the heart at the center of it all is still beating strong. Maybe for some readers it’s not a tabletop game, it’s a sport or a band or a video game - but we all have these connections to people. And no matter how much life gets in the way, there’s always a way to come back. And we’ll get together again, maybe have a few drinks, and we’ll talk and we’ll play. And it’s like no time has passed, but we’re older and wiser than we ever were. And suddenly, we’re home again. Read Full Review

    Again, there's not a lot of action in this issue but does offer some insight into the characters alternate-life back home. There's also the sense of desperation and what lines they need to cross to get back home. Read Full Review
