    This is the best issue of "The Saviors" yet, capitalizing on a unique locale and pushing its protagonist into an even more dire situation. Robinson's fast-moving plot and Bone's effortless-looking work are breezing us through this series, making it hard not to look forward to the next issue; but in the mean time, a chapter this beautifully executed could definitely use a second read.

    "The Saviors" #4 is a little bit classic sci-fi thriller throwback and part visionary exploration of a concept nearly as old as fiction itself. Robinson and Bone are an unconventional pairing that results in an unconventional, unpredictable and exciting story. Just as things seem pointed in a better direction for the characters, Robinson makes a shift, Bone matches that with excellent art and the story changes again. The reader is right alongside Tomas, wondering what's going on without being tipped to any behind-the-scenes answers or developments. Robinson has placed this story in the readers' collective laps, pulling them into the adventure. Image Comics has produced a number of unpredictably engaging stories recently and "The Saviors" is another accomplishment in that direction. Read Full Review
