We were going to give away a free pen on the cover of this issue, as it's the penultimate issue, but we costed it, and then our accountant attacked us, and then we decided to just do the comic instead. Hope that's okay with you. I'm sorry. We're disappointed too, but also bleeding from the accountant onslaught.

    The Ludocrats #4 is my favorite issue of a series that will likely end up being one of my favorites this year. Very excited to see what the finale has in store. Read Full Review

    Although the series appears to be rushing to a climax, there's plenty that keeps it going strong. Plot twists, colorful art, and very clever humor all make for an entertaining time. Read Full Review

    You will not receive a new pen with this issue, regardless of whatever lies that cover tells you. Don't listen, it's a charmer! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 21, 2020

    The fidelity to ludicrosity is admirable, but this issue is A LOT. If you live by puns, silliness and metatextuality, this one is probably a must-buy. Read Full Review

    There's a critique of modern superhero comics (and other event-focused genre fare) embedded in Ludocrats that's worth noting. Jabs at exposition, unnecessary order, and the loss of joy make the comic read as though it's speaking directly to Dark Nights: Death Metal. Read Full Review
