    Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of Riftworld Legends, which I've mentioned more than once in my reviews, is how it balances pacing across these three viewpoints. Rather than deal with each separately, as many other fantasy comics opt to do, writer Williams weaves his plot wholly together, creating the ever-blurred effect of a story happening all at once.

    Last but not least, the amount of cliffhangers is killing me, but it keeps Riftworld from a boring plot. How will Jackie and Shim escape? What is the Captain playing at? Where is Thora and why is she there? Guess you'll have to tune in next time for Riftworld #5. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Nov 28, 2017

    I was unfamiliar with Riftworld Chronicles, the series this comic is based on, and I still have not seen a single episode. That doesn't prevent me from enjoying the book, as there's more than enough information to dive in. I'm sure fans of the franchise will take away more than I did. On its own, Riftworld Legends has the makings of a sprawling fantasy epic. The idea that Jackie is going to take a major heel turn is a driving force of interest in the story, followed by Fiona's fear that she'll be punished for her connection to the man. It's definitely more in the fantasy side than the horror side, but has some dark elements that fans of either genre will dig. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 28, 2017

    Riftworld Legends #4 is a solid fantasy read and dives at least a little deeper into the world we are being presented. The characters are mostly entertaining, and there is enough comedy to keep everything light. Its not the most brilliant read, but it will give you a solid time. I can recommend it, and you should check it out if youre especially interested in comics in the fantasy genre. Read Full Review
