    What really works about this issue is the ending. Arkon has been searching for Polemachus since the beginning of this mini-series and he's never given up. Without spoiling too much about the issue, it's a pretty depressing ending and a moment where the reader wishes they could interact with the character inside the book. Aaron and Del Mundo have crafted something really enjoyable and a book that hearkens back to classic adventure/fantasy tales. Read Full Review

    As impossible as it may seem, both Aaron's script and Del Mundo's illustrations only get stronger as the issue progresses, culminating in a brilliantly paced and structured lead-in to the arc's literal cliffhanger. Both creators seemingly feed off each other, throughout this issue as well as the series, making for a story that only gets better and better. "Weirdworld" #4 is nothing short of comic book perfection. Read Full Review

    Somehow, the whole thing will wrap up next issue - I can't wait to see how (or if) the creative team manages to make it happen! Read Full Review

    Lord Doom Almighty, this is one beautiful book. Visually beautiful, that is, thanks to Mike Del Mundo's expertly realized, surreal vision of Weirdworld. Story wise, it's anything but beautiful, it's a tragedy of one man's desperate, improbable quest to find home. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Sep 26, 2015

    I love the revamped Swamp Things and the Swamp Queen, although I'm also glad that Arkon has his own personal quest and leaves that bit of world-building to stand on its own. Unfortunately, that means Arkon gets to repeat his previous journey almost verbatim, reducing him to just one dimensions and lessing out pathos for him as a result. Still, the weirdness of the setting and the lovingly rendered art and brilliant colors continue to make this an enjoyable world to explore. Read Full Review
