    On Comics Ground - Ian Cameron Jan 30, 2019

    This comic doesn't pull any punches. The creative team sets out to believably portray what can happen to those who suffer from bipolar disorder and does so exceedingly well. For this alone, this is a must-read comic, not just for fans of Nadia, but fans of comics and fans of human empathy in general. This will be one of the most important stories for the Unstoppable Wasp, and it should not be missed. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 2, 2019

    Unstoppable Wasp was already a great comic, but this issue takes it to fantastic new heights of drama and storytelling. A game-changing issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 5, 2019

    Whitley and Gurihiru have found a really nice balance in the opening four issues of the series. With plenty of action lining the first three issues, this fourth one kicks the narrative into an interesting alternative gear that inventively explores the intellectual life of a character in a way that takes full advantage of the comics medium. The original Nadia van Dyne series was cancelled after only 8 issues. With any luck this isnt the halfway point of THIS series. Whitley and Gurihiru have found a style that works for the character. Itll be interesting to see her develop in the issues to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 30, 2019

    I loved this issue for very personal reasons. While that may not translate to everyone, it is a realistic and unflattering look at mental disorder. The fact that Jeremy Whitley did it with little to no hype and (from the special thanks) research to boot, really made it feel genuine and thus very unique in this day and age. Plus, Gurihirus art made me smile through the tears! Read Full Review

    While it's strange to see a Nadia that's not bright and chipper, this dark shadow gives her some real depth and reminds readers that she's more than just a perennially bouncy teen. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 30, 2019

    Unstoppable Wasp #4 bulldozes away the critique that Nadia (and her friends) are too perfect, and it pushes its protagonist into a very scary place. It reveals the dark shadows cast by Nadia's optimistic energy and dives into them deeply. The ambitious character work is not without its flaws, and it's unrelieved by action or plot development, but this is a grim must-read for Nadia fans. Read Full Review
