When the broken Tallus sends them hurtling through time, the Exiles find themselves on the open seas! But this is no pirate's paradise. If the Exiles don't recover the Tallus and return to their mission, Earth - and the rest of reality - is lost! But they'll need help. The legendary Blackbeard - A.K.A.

    Exiles #4 takes readers on a fantastical journey through multiple storylines and dimensions. Fast-paced and action-packed, this issue doesn't leave a lot of room for deeper characterization but it does offer a nostalgic return to the classic days of comic books. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson Jun 15, 2018

    Now the critical part of me is like “So y'all just HAD to use slavery right?” I'm tired of Black identities and Black struggles being used as a metaphor to push forward a story line. There are so many other things that could possibly be used. I don't know, use a battle in Greece. Make Alexander the Great pop up and not be aware of his own greatness. I love seeing Black folk in literature, movies, etc. I'm here for it, but slavery is kind of over used. Maybe there is more of a reason why it is brought up later on that directly deals with the previous story line. I always love seeing my Black folks get free from their shackles. Appreciate that they are trying to say “save these people first”, but we been saved long time ago B. NEXT. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 15, 2018

    Exiles #4 frankly made a dire gambit in telling a swashbuckling pirate adventure about ending the slave trade, but it made it workbarely. Its hard to ignore the jovial tone cast against literal ship holds full of men and women in chains. That said, the comic makes the mess work if only narrowly. I can recommend it, though I would keep what youre getting into in mind. If youre can cope with these drawbacks, then feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    So far this has been my favorite issue of this series. Ahmed seems to have calmed down from the sprint we were on and where every issue was just the cast outrunning a giant zombie Galactus head. The pace is still high the story is wordy. That will likely be the nature of this series because every issue brings with it a new setting we are dropped in but as this is a big issue with a major reveal that sets the tone for the rest of this arc and likely next volume. We are starting to see the cast show their humanity. Humor is still there. This story is more about slavery than about high seas pirate action. The cover of this issue does not capture the story itself. I honestly think the addition of piracy and other alternate universe characters i more

    The creators finally stop over-thinking the Exiles and throw one down according to the simplest possible formula: "Exiles must complete self-contained AU adventure A to earn plot coupon B and get back to Bigger Picture Plot C." It works splendidly thanks to some broad strokes characterization and superb storytelling. Neither the AU setup nor the revelation of the World-Eater's identity are particularly novel, but they do a fine job of moving the story along. The nods to King Kirby throughout all the visuals work very well.

    This is a great book and it's very well written, but I keep feeling that there's too much going on that I am not sure if I care too much.

    When you think the story can go further more quickly the writer make a lot a work to weighing the story.
    So yeah that wasn't a bad story. And a story about slavery have to be explained in the good way. And with the end in the last issue we cannot see the character don't talk about that. But Why do he have to put away the talus ? Why add Falcon, A female bucky & Misty knight. Ok it's fun but the story become way too complicated, and Valkiry explaining to iron lad how to speak to woman wasn't funny.
    There is some work to make Khan more likable, but not much. And when she tell to wolvy that her daughter would have liked him I throw up in my mind, because he as to be the first to die (In very very much pain ^^ )

    Cover- Nice more
