    If the emotional journey wasn't enough, the final pages bring about new developments which should, to put it nicely, kick serious ass. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Henry Starling Apr 20, 2015

    Together, with the other issues leading to the Book of Death series coming up, looks like Valiant is moving each of their pieces into position, for their first ever "Unity" type crossover event. I for one just cannot wait! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Apr 21, 2015

    This books is highly entertaining. It is cleverly written, with clean art making it an easy read. As such, I did seem to get the end rather quickly. However, if you are looking for a fun read rather than potential lame ducks from Marvel who is either treading water until Secret Wars or promoting Ultron or the drastically disappointing filler issue quality of the Convergence tie-ins, then this book is for you.

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Apr 21, 2015

    Ivar, Timewalker is your new favorite binge-worthy TV show except its not on TV and theres only four issues available to date, but you get the idea. A richly developed protagonist adrift in a sea of time traveling adventures with an emotional resonance that tickles the funny bone and pats your back when youre feeling down. If you want the big, over-the-top superhero in a shared universe story, theres more appropriate Valiant books for that; but if you want to experience another sliver of that same universe with a lot less gravitas and a lot more science, bitches! well, you know where to look.

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley May 8, 2015

    Ivar, Timewalker 4 is another out-of-the-park issue by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry. The writing is sharp and the art is excellent. As always, I'm impressed with Van Lente's ability with plotting as well as the ease with which he writes characters. With Archer & Armstrong gone for now, this has become my favorite Valiant title, and if you're a fan of time-travel stories, roguish characters, and adventure, then you'll love this book.

    Geeked Out Nation - Kate Coenen Apr 25, 2015

    Ivar, Timewalker #4 brings the first story arc to a strong close, keeping you on the edge of your seat anxious to see what happens next. The Neela of the future is a powerful and unsettling villain, and it will be interesting to find out how present-day Neela will change after seeing her future. Ivar, Timewalker combines sweeping action with a story that hits close to home, so there's no doubt that what Neela has in store for her will have huge implications on both a personal and a cosmic level.

    Word Of The Nerd - Yamini C Apr 23, 2015

    Changing history through time-travel is a concept that has been exhausted thoroughly across multiple media, but by slowly unveiling the intense emotional component of the story, van Lente, Henry, et al., ensure Ivar, Timewalker #4 stands out as an exquisitely crafted and evocative take on an old idea. If the creative team continue pushing moral and philosophical quandaries with such thoughtfulness, wit, and heart-racing action, they'll quickly have a veritable modern classic of time-travel on their hands.

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Apr 22, 2015

    Aside from some flaws with the art however, this is another great issue of Ivar, Timewalker. This issue sees one particularly gripping set-piece, more witty dialogue, and a progression of Van Lente's overarching story. Ivar, Timewalker continues to be a book worth your time and money, and one of my favorite comics currently on stands. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Tyler Sewell Apr 21, 2015

    This issue definitely isn't as flashy as the previous issues have been. While it is considered the finale to the series' first story arc, it serves more as a stepping stone into the next arc that promises a new look and a great jumping on point. This issue provides plenty of necessary context as far as rules to time travel and Neela's personal history, but doesn't have the fireworks of a finale. Read Full Review
