Civil unrest intensifies following the radical anti-establishment violence and the attempted assassination of Missy Devereaux. Jason is pushed to balance his allegiances and assess his priorities as he tracks Missy's superhuman assailant and federal authorities hone in on Amber's cell. Radically unafraid of the looming threat, Amber's commitment to the cause inches closer to a death wish-and a devastating betrayal may grant it.

    I think there are appropriate stakes and developments for Those Above and Those Below #4. Theres a significant change from the previous issues and the ones that follow are sizing up to be monumental. I like that the politics are beginning to blend in a more intentional manner, and we get to really see how the protagonists of this series are truly connected, as well as who they may truly be. This ongoing political discussion is intriguing and, though heartbreaking, its parallels to our world now give it a hefty weight and relevance. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Josh Vermillion Jan 5, 2018

    After three fairly solid issues, I think this one was a bit of a dud. The story hasn't moved forward very much and the characters haven't had any development in these four issues. The art is still good and I think there could be a good story in there, it's just buried under mounds of forced dialogue. I hope John Ridley turns it around and give a solid end to the series, but I can't say that it's looking that way right now. Read Full Review
