    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 26, 2017

    The dialogue and action in this issue were top notch. Not only the banter with Daken " whom Grace really makes especially slimy and horrible " but also everything Zach has to say to Bobby. It's smart stuff, really playing into the idea that Bobby is trying to be a role model to these students. And this issue is such a complete story. We go all the way from finding out Zach is missing, to the encounter with Daken and Zach at the club, to the emotional climax, to a nice little epilogue. Grace has been doing a great job with single-issue stories that build the larger narrative. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 23, 2017

    This issue takes us deeper into Iceman' world when we are now seeing the struggles of being a teacher on top of everything else. Iceman #4 was fun, another personal story, and brought back a fan favorite for a short time. It means a lot that they can find a balance between his life as an X-Man and as Bobby figuring himself out. You know what to expect from Bobby, but it doesn't mean you can prepare yourself for what life throws at him. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 24, 2017

    Some of the dialogue is cheesy, but Sina Grace, Edgar Salazar, Ed Tadeo, and Rachelle Rosenberg make Iceman #4 one of the more memorable issues of the series by adding a hint of sexual tension in the interactions (and action of the mutant powers sort) between Daken and Iceman. Read Full Review

    The middle of the issue drags on a bit, but overall Iceman #4 is a fun time with a consistently endearing hero and strong artwork. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 24, 2017

    Iceman and Daken make for a surprisingly effective pair. That's the main takeaway from this issue, which pits the two mutants against one another as Bobby tries to track down a wayward student. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Aug 23, 2017

    Yet, there is still something missing from Iceman in the sense of direction and its future, marked significantly by breakneck developments. This series may just need more time to find a firm footing, but it seems as though that is becoming a much bigger challenge than I expected. Read Full Review

    While Gay-wannabe Iceman and Patch-wannabe Daken had several and certain characterization scenes the presentation and direction is disagreeable as done so far. Having said that, this ish was so much more entertaining than Weapon X or X-men Gold also out this week hence the solid grade.

    The ice statue ruse was brilliant. The snowflake gut wedge was cool. The fight was pretty good. The Daken school is lame. Zach Attack is not close to as great as he thinks he is as a Leech-wannabe with temporary volume control.

    Iceman faces off with Daken when Zach, the increasingly-horrible mutant teen from #2, goes AWOL. Sina Grace's plotting and characterization are rock solid, but his dialogue is painfully contrived and not half as hep as he'd like it to be. Visually, Edgar Salazar does sterling work on settings and characters, but his pencils are robbed of their impact by Ed Tadeo's scratchy, shallow inking. There's potential for greatness here - most notably, this creative team is terrific at using Bobby's powers in smart, novel ways - but the flaws aren't overlookable. I can't really call any comic "great" when the dialogue delivers eyeball-rollers every two pages.

    Been giving this comic a try, because I do like the character of Ice Man and have since the 90's when I was introduced to the X-Men in Animated Form. But honestly apart from the fact they are still going with the whole angle of having current 616 Ice Man being gay, even after they explained that the past X-Men team was actually from another universe not a time displaced version of the 616 team. Essentially meaning current Ice Man shouldn't be gay as the past Ice Man that is isn't even really a past him. Aside from all that bit of nonsense, this actual issue is bad from the writing to the artwork to the continuity and character errors. In this issue the artist seriously switches up Daken's claws from page to page, initially making them metal more
