    Primarily backstory on the baddie, though the scenes in the present have decent action. I enjoyed learning why the villain and her spawn are disposed to cause trouble, but I do wish there had been more fighting in the present. The visuals are exceptional, leaving me wanting to see more from the artist and colorist. This was an enjoyable comic. Read Full Review

    Nyx is actually a really cool villain with a profoundly resonant background, so the issue feels satisfying as it leads-in to the halfway point of the twelve segment No Road Home mini-series. The story of Nyx and her kids almost feel drawn from some end of Neil Gaimans Sandman and into a more aggressively brutal Marvel iteration of godliness. This issues pacing sets things up quite well for rising action that will doubtlessly rush through the fifth issue. Read Full Review

    Telling Nyx's story in her own words gives the creators of No Road Home #4 an excuse to go as big as possible with their storytelling. It's a successful and fascinating gambit, and it recaptures the huge scale this title had at its outset. Pulling the focus so far away from the Avengers is risky, though. This series has collected its heroes, established its conflict, and now explained its antagonists. The next step must be "the heroes accomplish something meaningful," or No Road Home is in serious trouble. Read Full Review

    There's nothing necessarily bad going on, but it's certainly a lot less interesting than previous weeks. Read Full Review
