    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 13, 2019

    The fourth issue of The Warning is a really sharp three-act story which has the kind of integrity to practically stand on its own. Human concerns are nothing to the destructive power of common threats. Its a very well-balanced, dramatic installment of a unique alien invasion serial. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 12, 2019

    The situation on earth has become as hopeless as can be. Even the best efforts in defense of humanity only seem to make things worse. So far, The Warning is a taught sci-fi thriller with plenty of secrets left to unfold. Read Full Review

    My interest was definitely piqued by this issue, although it remains to be seen if we'll get something meaningful next month. Read Full Review

    What a mess.

    This issue was slightly better than the last, but there is still no narrative structure. While deeply unfashionable these days, some thought bubbles and narration boxes would help to give the story some structure and perhaps even resolve the problem of there being no actual characters.

    I really wanted to enjoy this, but it just annoys me with each successive issue. There are ideas in the story that I would like to see explored - such as the augmentation of whatever the soldier plot cipher is called - but I have no faith in Laroche being able to actually deliver on it. What a huge shame. Laroche needs to find a writer to work with, as his talents don't extend to that, I'm afraid.
