    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 13, 2015

    Its good to start getting a sense of how others perceive Silk, particularly if shes going to be sustaining her own solo series, but its even better to start get a better sense of how she perceives herself. Theres been a lot of great reactionary events in the last three issues, but this is the first time when her sense of self really feels like its calcifying, and its making the character even more intriguing. Though the frantic pace of the issue makes it sometimes feel like she needs a breather from this breather, it still does a great job continuing her character development. Read Full Review

    Right off the bat, I found the art particularly interesting within this issue, seeing as even though Lee has remained consistently on art thus far in the series, the style changes oh so slightly to become more realistic; and rightfully so. While I do miss the comical and almost "Disney-esque" portrayal characters, the slight changes in style allow for different levels of facial expression and body language to be conveyed, which (with this being a relatively lighthearted story) help in conveying a sense of gravity regarding Cindy's current circumstances. Silk still remains one of my favorite pulls to look forward to, and Cindy Moon shockingly one of my favorite heroines to read. Read Full Review

    Silk #4 is another enjoyable chapter in what has been a very strong first arc for one of Marvel's newest teen-ish heroes. Anyone who has been enjoying Ms. Marvel should be giving this comic a shot and issue #4, while arguably maybe not in the league of the first three issues as far as visuals are concerned, is by no means disappointing. Robbie Thompson has a good handle on this charming web slinger and you can't go wrong trying out Silk #4. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn May 16, 2015

    Thompson's writing of Cindy remains strong, and while Martello's artwork isn't as distinctive or strong as Lee's, it's still a serviceable stand-in for this less action-packed, more introspective issue. Silk #4 continues to evolve the character, and is worth reading for anyone, especially if they're enjoying Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, or Ms. Marvel. Read Full Review

    Silk #4 is lighter on action than past issues have been, but when the characterization is this solid, it hardly matters. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 16, 2015

    Normally I like issues that focus on the superhero as a real person, out of costume. But Thompson didn't really offer up anything to sink my teeth into. Silk #4 is just some light, fluffy filler. Read Full Review
