    This issue allows Izzy to make a start at discovering her true nature. It's strange, comparing her introduction in issue #1 as an evil witch to now rooting for her to find herself is an interesting journey for the reader. Amping up the horror element is appreciated, as it seems to foreshadow the direction of the title. There's still the slightest suggestion, that Aaron's heart may not be all in…has he actually fallen for Izzy? Read Full Review

    Mirka Andolfo's visual style is the perfect complement to Blacker's story and its tone. There are so many amazing panels and the panic rendered on Aaron's face is delightful. All of the great visuals lead to a final page that opens the floodgates for something visually stunning to happen in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 13, 2019

    Hex Wives is steadily building to something big. Each chapter has uncovered more and more atrocities these men have committed in an attempt to control and keep these women down. It's only a matter of time before this all falls apart and the witches rise up to take their well-deserved revenge. This will not be a dish best served cold. It will be served flaming hot and full of pain. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 30, 2019

    With Izzy serving as the center of a really interesting ensemble of ersatz witches in the middle of a very oppressive suburban bubble, Hex Wives continues to slink through the intrigue of a very interesting story. There might be some difficulty maintaining the right mix of amnesia and subjugated power in future issues, but at the moment Blacker, Andolfo and Louise have a really unique story running in the fourth issue of an engrossing series.

    Although the art really pushes this issue, the writing seems to effortlessly weave together the lore of Hex Wives and the ongoing story. Only 4 issues in, there are still questions unanswered, but none which prevent enjoying the comic and understanding the implications of the events that unfold. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress of these witches regaining their powers, and hopefully the reduction of the witch hunters control. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Sanchez Jan 30, 2019

    That being said, with each issue the women are coming close to remembering their past witchy lives and I can't wait for them too. If you aren't reading this series yet, start! With Iz starting to realize what can trigger their suppressed abilities, I'm sure issue #5 will hold more answers and maybe a confrontation or two. Read Full Review
