    This comic sure turned this mini-series around big time, and as should be apparent by my glowing words, I couldn't be happier. It's like this mini-series was tailor-made just for me with how much I love the Marvel alien races. This mini-series is probably not for everybody, but for those of us that can tell a Skrull from a Badoon, this is must read stuff! Read Full Review

    This event just keeps getting better and better. A great middle chapter that most events fill with padding. No wasted pages and every scene felt important. Loving this event and this issue. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown Jun 2, 2009

    Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning have created a truly thrilling and heart-wrenching epic with War of Kings. One can still enjoy this saga without getting bogged down in the various tie-in books. At the same time, there are only a few and as a whole they’ve been very entertaining and deepen the story. Read Full Review

    With the event past the halfway point, War of Kings has more than surpassed my expectations at this point. Right when I feel like I have a firm grasp of what's coming next, DnA pull the rug from under me. With two issues left, I can honestly say I really have no clue what's coming up next, which is probably the best compliment you can give a creative team. Read Full Review

    Reading "War of Kings" just reminds me that I need to check out Abnett and Lanning's work on the "Annihilation" mini-series, because "War of Kings" is a fun ride that will easily remind you why Marvel's outer space characters and races have been able to hold so much attention over the years. It's just fun, pure and simple. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jun 8, 2009

    War of Kings #4 was another fine installment of this entertaining big event. DnA are putting on an absolute clinic on how to handle a big event that feels properly large in scope and that successfully features a massive roster of characters. There are many writers from both DC and Marvel who could learn a few tricks from DnA when it comes to handling a big event. Read Full Review
