    Either way, though, Jeff's scripts were outstanding this issue. And the artists, Emi and Jordie, did a great job interpreting them together, as if they were just a single artist, Emordie Bellenox. I recommend this issue to everyone who reads this. It is well worth the money, and time, spent. Plutona #4 definitely deserves 5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    Probably the most underrated element of Plutona is the sequential art, which has consistently told its half of the story in a clear, emotional way. The expressions set the emotional tone of each scene, especially capturing the nervousness and awkwardness of the frequent silent panels. Read Full Review

    Lemire and Lenox have a strong collaboration; now we just have to wait to see if they land the ending. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Feb 26, 2016

    This issue is probably the weakest so far, but its still pretty great. Everything seems to be coming to a head, and, like I mentioned earlier, its culminating in the climaxes of character relations. My only real complaint is it doesnt feel like weve reached the point where those are warranted yet, but I do really enjoy everything else about the book. Well have to see where the final issue goes, but this will probably be something worth checking out down the line, considering that it may be a bit too late to read it in singles with just one left.

    Overall, this issue is kind of the climax of the series. I’m really glad Mie and Ray got to see what Tugger was up to in the woods. It didn’t end as I expected, but hey, it makes for a good story! The end of the series is coming up, so be sure to see what happens! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Asa Giannini Feb 24, 2016

    Perhaps as a consequence of the charismatic art style, I want to like Plutona far more than I actually do. I'd like to see a book that tackles the concept of children dealing with death through superheroes. But as it stands, there's very little to recommend the book which feels increasingly dull. Perhaps when the mini-series is collected as a volume after next month's issue, it will read better, but it's hard to imagine it, at its best, being more than an example of when good creative teams make something that isn't quite good.
