    It might sound like I didn't enjoy this issue very much, but that's only because the last three have been such surprise hit character pieces. This time around, Gage treats the New Warriors cast respectfully, allowing their threads to play out as the book heads for relaunch. It's not the strongest part of the Siege tapestry, but big fans should be pleased nonetheless. Read Full Review

    There's a general sense of padding about the issue, that it's there to simply show what happens between the panels of "Siege" #3 where the important, essential actions happen. This is the leftovers, at least in the second half. It doesn't stand up against other tie-ins that manage to carve their own little corner of the story, showcasing something unique about the event. While the beginning of the issue does that, the second half is largely a repeat of "Siege" #3. It's a decent, solid issue, but somewhat redundant placed so closely to the main "Siege" series when it clearly has more unique ideas and characters to focus on. Read Full Review
