    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 10, 2021

    The series wraps-up in April with the big finale. Taskmaster. Black Widow. Nick Fury. It's a bit showdown, but it will remain to be seen if MacKay and Vitti manage to wrap things up in a way that's going to be satisfying given how truly open and wild the first four issues of the five-part series have been. It's cool to have Taskmaster's place slowly reveal itself in the course of a given issue. Still, MacKay and Vitti will have as hell of a time getting the overall series to come together in a fifth issue as they haven't done a lot of work revealing to the reader the larger picture of the whole series.

    If you're not a fan of this comedic take on Taskmaster, it's understandable. But Taskmaster #4 will surprise readers in how it commits to showing Taskmaster as a skilled fighter and mercenary. If you're already reading the series then definitely check this out. Read Full Review

    We can only have so many Black Widow cliffhangers before it gets old, however, so hopefully the next issue or so will offer a similar payoff considering how the threat of Taskmaster's looming adversary has grown over the course of the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 16, 2021

    This issue is good, almost good enough to make me forget how much I used to hate Taskmaster. That's some heavy lifting, done very well. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 10, 2021

    Taskmaster #4 delivers a simple infiltrate-and-fight mission that successfully produces a Tasky-Okoye throw-down. The story is told with more-than-competent skill, but it's so straightforward that the reader's attention will likely wander into murkier waters, like Taskmaster's chauvinism. Read Full Review
