When Armor and her team set off to bring their friends home to Krakoa, they thought it'd be an easy sell and a quick trip. Then everything went sideways, and now they're in serious trouble-looks like it's time to call in the cavalry. But will that be enough to turn the tide?

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 18, 2019

    New Mutants #4 presses forward with a storyline worth telling in the early stages of the Dawn of X books. With great opportunity comes greater problems. All mutants are learning this in one way or another whether it is out in space, or down on Earth and beyond the security of Krakoa. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 24, 2019

    As the story changes so soon after relaunch it proves once again that the New Mutants are always at the forefront when it comes to not letting the grass grow under our feet and manage to keep us guessing and not get complacent with a good old bait-and-switch. Read Full Review

    Short, sweet and quality, I'm glad that at least some Dawn of X comics are focusing on characters that would otherwise get lost in the shuffle. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 18, 2019

    New Mutants #4 builds on the last issue rather well. Brisson uses human greed as a prime motivator in this one, and it works very well. On top of that, he does some subtle character work, which shines a light on several of the characters. Marco Failla's art is okay, but it suffers in a few places. It will be interesting to see how things play out in the next issue. Can a drunken Boom Boom save the day or will she make an escape already in progress even worse? Brisson knows how to bait readers into coming back. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 18, 2019

    A good second issue focusing on the Krakoan drugs and how it may be putting all mutants in danger. How can you live in the world when humans are well aware you have life-saving drugs at your disposal? It's an interesting concept that Brisson is exploring. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Dec 19, 2019

    The only real problem with this issue is that it seems like a lot ofissues not to get very far. While I appreciate the character shading tothe other characters, there isn't enough of that for this to go as slowas it does. Fortunately the humor " much of it provided by Boom-Boom,who is always a delight " picks up the slack for a story that keeps the momentum going, even if it doesn't quite push it along as much as wewould want.

    If you loved last weeks NEW MUTANTS #3, youll love this issue. Its so much more clear, has more action, and gives reasons and meaning to the narrative at hand. However, this arc feels like an interlude that could truly be skipped and picked back up as soon as this arc is over. Read Full Review

    There's some fun interaction between Sage and Boom Boom, but it isn't enough to carry this frustrating story. Read Full Review
