Ultron has long wished to take over all there is and replace it with only Ultron...but now armed with an Infinity Stone, he has never been closer to his goal. With the Guardians falling apart, who can step forward to stop the singularity from overwhelming everything?

    Whichever you direction you look, this miniseries continues to deliver every sort of fun one could hope for from a superhero event with laughs and shouts aplenty. Read Full Review

    Overall, Infinity Countdown #4 moves the plot with a great story and descriptive dialogue. Using comedy in one storyline and the seriousness of the others makes this title so exhilarating with all the twists and turns. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Brian Clements Jun 6, 2018

    As in many mini-series, especially those leading up to a larger event, there is a lull in the center of the story where pieces must be moved into place, stories must be sorted, plots must be plotted. Infinity Countdown #4 is that spot. I'm looking forward to seeing where we go from here. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ruston Fritcher Jun 6, 2018

    Infinity Countdown #4 does a good job of continuing the story of the Guardians attempts to protect the Infinity Stones. It has some questionable art but still does the job. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 6, 2018

    Something isn't clicking here for me. Maybe it's the story. Maybe it's the art. The combination, absolutely. There's glimpses of excellence but that's mired in choices that don't quite work. The fact we know more is to come this summer makes all of this feel even more like a prequel book, an early chapter that is dragging things out a bit too much. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 12, 2018

    I think this issue left me more frustrated than anything for this event. I was excited when the last issue ended. It was funny and interesting and left me thinking we would be getting answers. I leave this issue feeling the total opposite way. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jun 7, 2018

    It's always disappointing to see when a series, already designed as both build-up and lead-in for an upcoming event, has to slow down and noticeably move pieces around the board in preparation. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 6, 2018

    Infinity Countdown #4 brings the Guardians story to a grinding halt while making you wonder why anyone likes these characters. The Warlock and Silver Surfer half is better in both story and art, but it doesn't make up for the waste of time the rest of the comic is. The mainline Infinity Countdown series has been underwhelming since #1, so this is a bad issue in an underperforming series. I can't recommend it. Give it a pass. Read Full Review

    This was even more fun than the last issue which fortunately increased my interest to pick up the last issue that is coming up. Gerry Duggan continues to write fun stories. Aaron Kuder and Mike Hawthorne's art were so much better and consistent in this issue but the standout here is Jordie Bellaire. His colouring in this book is mind blowingly amazing! Loved it.

    One thing though, maybe the reason why i am loosing mood in this Infinity Countdown series is not because of the creative team, i think it is because of the characters they write. I have a big respect to the Guardians of the Galaxy, but i just feel like they arent as much fun and insteresting as they are in the movies. I occasionally find myself forcing to read their dial more

    Good issue but somehow some of the events didn't resonate well with me. Great art from Hawthorne and Kuder but the narrative felt disjointed still. I'm on board and waiting for the Infinity watch. I just wished this was given time to breath. It's obvious (as has been known for a while now) this would have been told in multiple issues but GOTG was cancelled so events had to be crammed in the Countdown. Duggan is still doing as best as possible.

    Slightly slower than the last issue, but still quite a lot happened. Especially for one character...oh boy. Can Duggan take over the Marvel cosmic?

    The Guardians break for a little planning and bickering while Warlock, Surfer, and Galactus fight a good fight against Ultron. I'm torn by the outcome and what it does to Big G. It's a very satisfying resolution to this story, but it burns some bridges that didn't need to be burned. This issue's art was also problematic for me; it seems to be sliding from good-weird to weird-weird.

    This was an average comic book, with inconsistent art and a kind of meandering plot. I was surprised about the reveal at the end, which was cool and will have me back for the next issue. So there you go.

    Overrall was a good issue, but how is possiible that Al Ewing lost all his time in the Ultimate for nothing? :(

    Still a decent series, but it's quickly losing its steam. Hopefully the main series has a stronger delivery and consistency than this, or it will be a disappointment.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    I normally don’t like to start off a review negative but this part really stuck out to me. In comics, I’m a story guy through and through. To me, that’s where you get points. Story over art. I’m sorry artists but that’s just me. That said; the art is still vital to the story. It’s the foundation of your building. It’s the drummer in a band, which I can say because I was in many bands growing up. As a set drummer, you keep the rhythm, the balance, the structure, and without the drummer, the song is just ok.... for example acoustic songs!!!

    I was very down after this reading. It's not what I waited & I was very disappointed.
    But I didn't like issue but liked the 2 & 3 issue. So I hope the last issue will be great !

    Cover - I take the connected variant. And it's fine & connected ^^ 2/2
    Writing - I find it weird. The only part I like was Ryder call up for a there future going right next to this instant for going smack the Raptor with the infinity stone ^^ 1/3
    Arts - The art isn't perfect and raise many question (Like what happen at the end with Galactus). 2/3
    Feeling - I didn't like it. 0/2
