    In fact, you wouldn't think any time has passed between the previous issue and this one with the way Jonathan writes. It's such a signature style which writhes between poetic and blunt observation. He gives just enough away to keep the reader captivated without overloading them with story. As with all his works, each character is so well-rounded and distinctive, yet we still feel as if they're untouchable and behind a glass. Nothing is fully revealed, and maybe the story won't tie up without any loose ends that just beg to be tugged on. He is writer that creates discussion, and this series is one that begs to be talked about. Read Full Review

    The Dying and The Dead #4 probably would have read stronger if it had come out closer to the issue it's so closely connected to, but it still has the power to remind readers why this moody pulp mash-up works so well. It's provocative, surprising, and constantly doling out answers that just lead to deeper more difficult questions. It's as pure of an example of Hickman's fascination with puzzle-box storytelling as it gets and a reminder of what he and his collaborators are capable of doing at their best. Read Full Review
