    Time travel stories can be a bit dicey, and stopping a time master is almost impossible - but writer Charles Soule has cooked up some clever twists and some strong character beats here. Add to that terrific art by Steve McNiven and Jay Leisten and you have a powerful start to this series. Read Full Review

    Altogether, Uncanny Inhumans#4 stands out among the wave of recently added Inhuman titles, and expectations have never been higher for the royal family's flagship title. Read Full Review

    Uncanny Inhumans #4 is a rock solid comic that entertained me with a great story and very good artwork. Soule has a great handle on these characters and I am excited to see where he takes the Inhumanverse of the Marvel U with issue #5 and onward. Ahura is a dynamic addition to the cast and I think the future is bright for this series. I'd certainly recommend anyone checking out the first four issues of this series, you won't be disappointed.

    This issue was a great way to end the story arc with Kang the Conqueror. It may not have had much action, but the story to retrieve Ahura was concise and well structured, even with the several time traveling events. The final moment of the issue was a happy one, but it will be interesting to see how stable the royal family will be after knowing about Medusa's relationship with Johnny Storm and what Ahura is capable of. I, for one, cannot wait for the future of the Inhumans in the next issue! Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Jan 26, 2016

    Putting the focus on Black Bolt and Medusa trying to rescue their son lets the book emphasize the Inhuman franchise's focus on family as well as adding additional shading and complications to the burgeoning romantic relationship between Johnny Storm and Medusa. It's a smart way to emphasize what's unique and interesting about these characters while tying them into the greater Marvel universe. For the first time, it doesn't feel as if the Inhumans are sacrificing their uniqueness for acceptability and it adds up to the franchise's first must-read story of the last five years.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jan 24, 2016

    Uncanny Inhumans has been interesting enough; Charles Soule is a good writer that should keep your interest piqued, especially for at least another arc. The art on this book is just superb. You wont find better art on a series this week. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jan 21, 2016

    Soule's script has its moments and McNiven and Leisten's art a few more, which is just enough to make "Uncanny Inhumans" #4 a passable but nonetheless disappointing conclusion to an otherwise enjoyable arc. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Jan 21, 2016

    Charles Soule uses the formula of a J.R.R. Tolkien book's appendix: go as deep as possible into the arcane history of one or two characters. Read Full Review
