The cycle of horror travels far into the future for the fourth issue of THE SILVER COIN by all-stars MICHAEL WALSH, CHIP ZDARSKY, KELLY THOMPSON, ED BRISSON, and JEFF LEMIRE. The year is 2467, and the old world has been buried beneath the junk of a new civilization. From the trash, a scavenger discovers ancient treasure - a coin. The price it carries, however, is unimaginable.

    The Silver Coin#4 is haunting, striking, and scary on multiple levels, but even better, it's thought-provoking. It's a comic book that feels complex and rewarding if you let it, but simple enough to enjoy simply reading from panel to panel. Read Full Review

    The collision of humanity's very real, modern demons with its most potent imagined ones creates a compelling invitation to see what comes next, and I already know I'm ready to discover every year upon this terrifying timeline. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jul 13, 2021

    This feels like a very short issue, that mirrors the themes of the last issue with three thieves being chased towards the coin and one female character “surviving” after being linked with the coin. With the final issue, we are jumping back centuries to the New England witch trials. Read Full Review

    Walsh delivers some impressive visuals throughout this issue. The body horror elements are visually striking and the action is thrilling. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jul 14, 2021

    The Silver Coin #4 isn't my favorite installment of the anthology, has a pretty one-dimensional protagonist, and a conclusion that had me going, “Wait, that was it.” However, Jeff Lemire, Michael Walsh, and Toni Marie Griffin craft a memorable dystopian hellscape, and there are some cool chase scenes, action bits, and seriously creepy panels of techno-horror. But this is more part one of a two part sci-fi TV show pilot than Tharg's Future Shocks with extra pages. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 14, 2021

    It's nice to see the anthology series willing to branch out and try something wild. Following the life of a single coin in a series of one-shot stories might run the risk of feeling a bit repetitious. Adding sci-fi cyberpunk horror into the mix would seem to be a good fit, but Lemire and Walsh haven't found a way to manage it that feels interesting. A sudden jolt to the future for the series in its fourth issue should have been more darkly dazzling.  Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 20, 2021

    Interesting themes and a fun (if somewhat familiar) cyberpunk reality, but the story feels like it ends abruptly and needs some fleshing out. Read Full Review
