    This series is constantly selling out and going back for multiple prints of past issues, so I know I don't have to convince too many of you to jump on board. If you're not, however, lucky enough to already be reading this title, do so immediately. It's creative, compelling, terrifying, and smart. It's downright Lynchian and I can't recommend a newer title more than this one. Read Full Review

    I am aware that the main criticism of this book and issue in particular is it has been focusing too much on character and not enough on plot progression. In other words some people feel like its moving too slow. I understand those complaints but I will firmly disagree with it as a negative. Sure this book is not moving at mach speed but that is one of the things I enjoy about it. It feels like a real life pace, filled with the pain and fear and drama of failing those you love and trying to redeem yourself. To be fair there hasn't been many really scary moments since the first issue, but with the cliffhanger this months installment left off on, I'm sure it will creep into the fold soon. Outcast #4 was a great issue and I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    Art-wise, not enough can be said about Azaceta and colorist Elizabeth Breitweiser. Azaceta's character work is simply phenomenal " there's never a single instance where you don't know who's who or what's going on, so fully realized is his seemingly idyllic world. Breitweiser again uses her warm, calming hues to make the proceedings disturbingly innocent, her colors changing to garish and disturbing greens to display the book's shifting tone. The book's final page is one teeming with dread, a simple but effective cliffhanger that almost dares the reader to guess what's coming next. Read with the lights on. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Sep 25, 2014

    Honestly, the slow pacing and lack of story for most of this arc have really hurt the book's momentum. Sure, it has subtle hints of something going on and the ending is setting up for something epic next time, but for the comic to truly shine, it needs to pick up the pace. The character work and artwork are great, but they need more to truly become something special like the first issue was. Read Full Review

    Outcast is slowing down too much for my tastes. If you like horror and slow burn stories then you should be good to go with this and every issue. However, I think the characters don't feel very unique or interesting and that could be a problem no matter how much you like the genre and storytelling techniques used. A good read as part of an arc but a little too slow for a single, solitary read. Read Full Review
