    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 23, 2021

    This is a good looking issue with color work that changes with the time period. The flash back scenes have a blue tone that gives them a dreamlike quality. And the present is filled with bold and vibrant colors that are quite engaging. I found the artwork in this edition to be very transportive. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jun 28, 2021

    Silk continues its run of fantastic character development, energetic and emotional scenes, and an engaging story that catapults Cindy Moon/Silk to the heroic levels she should be inhabiting at all times. A creative tie to a Spider-Man villain helps open the story and allows for some really fun, moody, colorful artwork that embodies all the perfect qualities of superhero comic books. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 23, 2021

    Goo is an experienced author in narrative prose, but it's maddeningly difficult to get the rhythm just perfect on one issue per month of a comic book. The story that she's delivering here is interesting enough in its own right, but it's not terribly satisfying as a part of the longer run of a series that's still in its infancy. The extended family of characters that Goo is working with ARE interesting, but a bit more of the title character in issue #4 would have been a lot more satisfying. Read Full Review
