    Not only was this the best issue of Hinterkind, it was one of the best single issues in comics in quitesome time. Every moment of the villainy that played out amongst monsters and humans alike is quiteenjoyable. Despite the fact that we see apocalyptic material all the time in this day and age, Edgintonand Trifoglis take feels fresh and fierce. It truly is a great story. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jan 14, 2014

    The only other issue with this series is how quickly the plot seems to be advancing. Even though the series has undoubtedly slowed down, it's still moving at an alarmingly fast rate. Were this a mini series, that would be understandable, but this is an ongoing series. Edington may have a ton of ideas up his sleeve, and based on what we've seen so far, we've only scratched the surface of his creative reservoir. That being said, it's slightly worrying that the plot is moving at this rate. It's hard to actually talk about this without spoiling key plot points, but many key plot points for the overall series (ones that were inevitable eventually) have already been crossed off the list. That said, there really isn't much reason to complain about this issue. Hinterkind remains a solid series, finding success once again. Read Full Review

    With three groups intersecting now in the post-apocalyptic world of Hinterkind, survival is the only thing on everyones mind. Its become apparent, especially in this issue, that beings will go to great lengths and cross dangerous lines to ensure their place in the world. Though there were some problems I had with this issue, I still recommend Hinterkind to any fans of post-apocalyptic and modern fantasy stories. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Jan 10, 2014

    Francesco Trigoli and Cris Peter team up to tag team a visually appealing book, filled with plenty of gore and intense facial expressions. Edginton is working on something specia with Hinterkind, we just need to remain patient. This title has the makings of a surprise hit of 2014. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 8, 2014

    Hinterkind #4 is a good issue, but it's pretty slow and most just an exposition drop for new information. It's good to get this knowledge out of the way now so things can speed up later in the future, but right it is really slowing the story down a lot. Still, there is promise on the horizon and no reason to skip this at all despite everything. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jan 13, 2014

    Getting all the characters in one place is an important step, but still one short of having a coherent flow to the story. Read Full Review
