    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Oct 21, 2013

    This read continues to be an interesting and unique read on the comic market. It will be great to see just how Victoria manages to escape from her current situation. She is strong mentally and focused! She is the only formidable foe for Lucas right now, so she will definitely be coming out of that bunker kicking and screaming, promising that future issues will be great! Read Full Review

    After reading this series, readers should have no questions as to why Marvel has been trying to recruit writer Ed Brisson. The real question is why nobody is chasing after Christmas and color artist Chankhamma as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Oct 17, 2013

    The art was phenomenal again (I mean, how can you not love that cover?). Johnnie Christmas is able to capture each essential moment and is able to convey other ideas at the same time (such as Lucas being distracted by that girl and boy while partaking in the heated argument with Joey) with ease. The expressions are especially memorable art-wise. It's fascinating following the different characters and seeing how they react to different situations in their newly-found situation with Lucas as the leader. I'm looking forward to seeing how far Lucas is willing to go to keep these kids under his rule and what happens along the way. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jorge Solis Oct 17, 2013

    With a startling cliff-hanger, Sheltered #4 gets readers anxious for the next issue. As the “Sheltered” series steers into “Lord of the Flies” territory, we've just witnessed how Lucas has fallen into the dark side of human nature. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Oct 18, 2013

    Bearing the end of the issue in mind, this is definitely not the comic to read if you want to feel good about the world, or human beings in general. But as terrifying as things are getting here, I think the really interesting part of the story will be seeing how Victoria gets out of this situation, potentially building up a new community. Still, “Sheltered” has been and continues to be a reliable source of psychological horror, and it's giving its readers more to think about than ever. Read Full Review

    Culture Mass - Stephen Wilds Oct 25, 2013

    The apocalypse has been postponed, but that doesnt mean things slow down for the children at Safe Haven. The end of this book and the bonus pages make for quite the exciting experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Oct 21, 2013

    However, despite this unevenness, "Sheltered" #4 is worth reading just for its suspenseful use of sociology, showing how tyranny is threatened by communication, both with the outside world and within the community. Read Full Review
