    Most people do not realise they are in a destructive relationship till it's too late and the path from romantic obsessive to psychopathic obsessive is painfully thin. Young and Corona show how we all can end up with monsters in a relationship Read Full Review

    Young does an almost disturbing job of balancing the supernatural horror of the story with the real life horror of domestic violence. This issue is outstanding. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Nov 14, 2021

    Writer Skottie Young has struck gold with his tone and pacing here, reintroducing Ro's agent as a catalyst and managing the shift in this relationship so gradually it's almost imperceptible. The rich graphic tableau laid out by Jorge Corona, Jean-Francois Beaulieu, and Nate Piekos makes every turn of the page catch your breath in your throat with nervousness. This blend of a relationship going wrong with something that clearly should have been the reddest of red flags is like watching a train plummet off a bridge in slow motion. You feel like you should look away, but you won't be able to. Read Full Review

    The Me You Love in The Dark #4 is the penultimate issue in Skottie Young and Jorge Corona’s hauntingly beautiful tale and it does not disappoint in the slightest. Music has played an integral role in the telling of this story, both as a literally and artistic tool, so I feel it’s apt to say that it has reached its crescendo. We experience the results of the build up in the relationship between Ro and The Ghost, and it’s intense - even terrifying. I say it’s terrifying but not in an gruesome way, or at least not yet. It’s terrifying on a psychological level in a way that I think can many people can relate. It’s this ability to relate to what Ro goes through that makes the events particularly chilling.

    My goodness, are things going to go down in the finale issue. What a penultimate chapter to an uncomfortably romantic title. Now that I can see where this is going, MAJOR props to Young and Corona for pulling this off. Well done, this is about to be one of the most hard-hitting books of the year.
