    The story is wrapped up tidily in Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying #4. The main characters are tough, interesting, and capable. The villain has all the hallmarks of a great recurring villain of the kind we love to hate. I like setting up Queen Victoria in this world as being capable and morally ambiguous " it adds some terrific tension. Read Full Review

    The issue ends with potential for another crime for the duo to investigate. I hope we get to see that one in a new comic series because I really liked these two characters and the world in which they occupy. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Feb 1, 2019

    The showdown against the series' big bad is a relatively shortaffair but does not take away much from the characters' personalities and development. The issue ends on a relatively positive note while not wrapping everything up in a neat little bow. This is not the final adventure for this duo, but hopefully it's the last time they recycle a villain, as on this occasion it had a relatively anti-climactic outing. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - Lonnie Feb 27, 2019

    While the art of Dan Boultwood is completely mismatched to the story, using his animated characterizations and friendly drawing style makes this strange world very inviting and easily entered. Grim scenes are downplayed and readable by any age. An inspired choice by Titan. Read Full Review
