    Garbett's art perfectly compliments this story in every way. It's not so funky looking that it takes away from the story, but it offers its own unique look that marries with the writing wonderfully. Even the background of the city is wonderfully done, so much so that you sometimes forget this a world with no gravity. Read Full Review

    This is another strong outing making it 4 for 4 for this creative team. As a reader, I have to say that my appetite for this book continues and the appeal it has not dulled with the passage of the first 4 issues. Nowadays that is an achievement in and of itself, in an era when books increasingly get muddled after the first few issues. There is a clear plan here and it is a joy to watch it unfold.

    Skyward earns the near universal praise that it receives. But one of the most attractive aspects of this story is the clarity of the storytelling itself. Garbett and Fabela's visuals are always on point and each panel is particularly tailored to Henderson's razor sharp script. No words wasted. Each panel is like a grasp for gravity in a world where the power of/over gravity is the rarest of resources. The absence of gravity isn't exactly Skyward's franchise. Instead the franchise of the series is grounded in an intricate study of what all can (and cannot) happen in a world where gravity is absent. Read Full Review

    Henderson keeps the ball rolling with Willa's crazy journey in this exciting world that he has created. Also, the best of Garbett's artwork is saved for the end of this issue and continues to prove why he was born to draw this book. Next time in the world of Skyward isn't soon enough. Read Full Review

    Skyward #4 continues to take a simple concept and explore its logical repercussions in the world, a device that has been executed to perfection. In this issue, the creative team slows down a bit too, making room for more interactions between its characters. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Jul 25, 2018

    'Skyward' #4 slows things down a bit to reveal what's at stake while letting Willa and her dad clear the air. With Willa and her dad on the run, a friend kidnapped, and a desperate psychotic billionaire on the hunt, Joe Henderson sets the stage for an explosive confrontation. Art from Garbett and Fabela is rich and rewarding. It's uniquely entertaining and thrilling despite some bumps is a satisfying read. Read Full Review
