    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Aug 11, 2017

    The Defenders #4 is an excellent “conclusion” to the first arc. The events that happened in these first four issues are definitely going to affect the group for some time. The creative team has been most excellent in this series and you really couldn't ask for more out of them. If you like street level super hero action,then The Defenders is what you need. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil make a great team that hopefully sticks around for a long time. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Aug 11, 2017

    In short, Bendis has done a great job with Defenders, but he wobbled a bit on the landing. Still, the potential in this series is a lot higher than most, and this is definitely a series to keep your eye on. Read Full Review

    The Defenders#4 is a fun cap to a very enjoyable opening arc. Bendis knows how to write team books and he knows how to write these characters. But David Marquez turns this into a truly strong book, and well worth picking up. Check it out digitally or in our local comic book shop now! Read Full Review
