    This is, surprisingly, a Secret Wars tie-in. We don't see any reference to Battleworld, their domain, or God Doom, and I really like that. Honestly, I'm a little sick and tired of hearing about all that. It's refreshing to see a story take place in that world, without referencing the mainstream titles or characters. Ennis does an impressive job of making this issue humorous rather than offensive, adding in the tropes and Amazonian stereotypes we know. Even so, this script would be nothing without Braun's truly amazing artwork. It has movement, emotion, naturalness, action, and comedy, all in one issue. This isn't an issue (and a series) that you want to miss. Read Full Review

    Where Monsters Dwell#4 is another great chapter in this fantasticSecret Warstie-in. No, readers won't find references to Battleworld or God Doom, but this title has made the most of the opportunity the event provides. Garth Ennis' script perfectly balances the tropes and offensive stereotypes of the adventure genre with great humor and awareness, and Russell Braun makes the script come to life with nice actionand impeccable comedic timing.

    Russ Braun is awesome. Let's be real, here. The clear effort he puts in is evident in every minor detail from the leopard print bikinis and the grass skirts of the tribal men. But where would we be without Dono Almara? Probably nowhere".or reading something else. Who knows? Almara does an incredible job with the color. Everything is bright and realistic and washes so well together. Something that really wowed me was the way the goat blood spread through the ocean and how it rippled through the waves. He makes something so seemingly simple look so natural. Then there's the colossal shark. It's a full page of fighting waves and flying bodies. Despite of it illustrating my greatest fear, this is the most impressive issue to date. Read Full Review

    The art by Russ Braun is terrific, crafting a world of beautiful women, gruesome dinosaurs and lush environments. Add Garth Ennis' compelling story and you have a terrific adventure - but no heroes. Read Full Review
