    The Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw #4 is a fantasy epic in all the best ways, with fantastic characters, a rock solid plot and brilliant artwork. This is what happens when talented people get together and their skill sets click, and it's a magical thing. I cannot wait to read the next issue, this book is totally my jam and fills a void in my reading I never knew I had until it was released. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Travis Anderson Feb 23, 2015

    Issue four of The Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw is another great read that builds off of the last issue while still giving you time to breathe. It feels a little static with any action being shown through flashback thus stripping it of its spontaneity, but to compensate we are given a deeper look at each of the antagonists overall goals. It definitely entices the reader to check out what's to come and I anxiously await the parley between Seven-Scars and the Champion next issue. Here's hoping Goodfoot isn't as safe as she assumes.

    The Latest Pull - Ethan O'Neill Feb 17, 2015

    I am always super excited to read this series. It is the perfect fantasy series to be reading. The art is fantastic, the writing is intricate and the world being built is both beautiful and terrifying. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Rob George Feb 28, 2015

    The story really catches up with the art in issue number four. After a furious action packed first three issues, the pace slows down. We get a chance to get to know a few of the characters a little more. The Great Champion becomes more than a killing machine, Dusty starts learning the ways of the world, and a couple characters are clearly not team players. They dynamic of the crew really remind me of The Walking Dead. Issue number 4 really sets the stage for a very interesting tale of the interactions between people in crisis. Whos doing the right thing, whos struggling for power, whos taking advantage of the situation, whos being taken advantage of are all questions this issue set up to be answered. Issue #4 makes me very interested to the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Feb 17, 2015

    In the end, Issue 4 is good and worth your time. Its really nice to see Dusty get some major screen time, especially since hes supposed to be the storys narrator, and the Goodfoot/Sandorst sublot is still amusing, even if it doesnt tread any new ground. There are a lot of places TA;TaC could go, and I honestly dont know which is the most likely. Its nice to know there are plenty of surprises in store for us yet. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Gaumer Feb 24, 2015

    Busiek is doing some amazing things in this series, but he's taking his sweet time about it, and issue #4 of The Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw is not only as slow as the previous issues, but it completely ignores many of the more compelling aspects of the series thus far. While I'm still enjoying his overall approach to the series, the pacing of this issue just didn't work well with the subject matter found within. Ben Dewey's art was as superb as it's been throughout the series, with only a minor hiccup here and there. Still a good issue for the series, but I want to see a lot more of everything else Autumnlands has to offer. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 19, 2015

    The issue's ending stands out as a bit abrupt given the pages preceding it, but with some forward momentum teased and an artist like Dewey on point, The Atumnlands remains well worth your time. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - louis whiteford Feb 21, 2015

    This comic is neither great nor terrible. It just kind of exists, which is a shame, because Ben Dewey's putting a lot of work into these pages, and Busiek, if nothing else, still has a perfectly solid concept under all these boring tropes that are filling up his comic. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 17, 2015

    It's not a great issue, but it gets the job done as it's mostly about setting up the following issue. The series has been so spectacular up to this point you'd be remiss to skip this issue. Read Full Review
