    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 4, 2019

    Hex Wives built up to this exciting burst of vengeance and it is so worth it. I have been waiting for this issue since the series began and it delivers on all fronts. Writer Ben Blacker paced this arc well. I was practically pumping my fists out of sheer delight for the justifiable carnage unleashed by this coven. If Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, you should see what happens when you piss off these witches. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Mar 27, 2019

    Full stop, this issue is full of butt-kicking girl power in a way that is fresh, intense, and worth rooting for. The cover art's homage to Bewitched is just the icing on the cake. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 27, 2019

    Mirka Andolfos beautiful art punctuates the action and sly, subversive fun of this issue and its characters. Things are getting good in this series and I cant wait to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Mar 28, 2019

    Izzy and her friends have finally discovered their true natures and see their future ahead of them as an exploration of the past. As good as the first 6 issues have been, it seems that this series is still on the rise. It's clever and imaginative, and always leaves the reader wanting more. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 27, 2019

    Its a satisfying wrap-up to the initial six issues. At the outset of the series back in October, Blacker and Andolfo said they wanted to keep doing the series indefinitely. There are so many places the story could go from here, and there are quite a few mysteries revealed in the sixth issue for Blacker and Andolfo to uncover. The ensemble of witches has been introduced. From here it could get really interesting. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Mar 27, 2019

    Ben Blacker is quite the writing talent. He has created some real characters here that truly resonate. He has found the perfect partner in his scripts with Andolfo who Illustrates them perfectly. They have both done a great job on this one. Read Full Review

    There are some interesting clues as to where things are headed, but the change of pace will catch readers off guard. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 27, 2019

    The ending arrives as expected and if anything, Ben Blacker pulls his punches. A bunch of powerful women band together to take over the world, but there is a man to show them the way. Maybe he means this as another trope to upend, but it sure does not look likely. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Sanchez Mar 27, 2019

    That being said, I can't get past the dialogue and unless this switches gears, I'm going to stop reading. The series has made it its mission to empower women and show the damage of patriarchy, but with its treatment of Becky, the series is failing one if its characters and those who are reading this comic that identify with Becky.

    This all just feels... really easy? Not super artfully written. Just “oh okay we’re witches now. We all are totally fine with that and our powers and have no further questions. Also we all had stupid outfits in our houses, of course. It totally makes sense that I would have spider earrings and a cape here in my idyllic 1950s home.” Also like why am I rooting for these women? They apparently murdered a town full of people. That’s a bad look, ladies. And I don’t know who most of the guys are. Like, I genuinely didn’t know which one was married to which woman, other than Mainuel Guyson and Fakery McBurns.

    Meh. I was expecting a lot more? And I'm not sure whether this series is on a break or if this is the finale. But it was certainly an underwhelming ending regardless. The way the witches get revenge is like any other story like this. While it should feel cathartic to the readers since we've been on this journey with these characters, I just found it really, really boring. It's nothing new and without the characters really resonating with me, I could not care less when what's-her-name burns her husband to a crisp or when the-other-one saves her husband from the same fate.
