Hopeless! Schism! Mutual loathing! These are just some of the words to describe the state of Tab and Selena's relationship when the mother-daughter duo's forced to go their separate ways, lest their bitter memories of the past compel them to straight-up murder each other. But murder's not off the table completely when Selena's set upon by the Braintrust, a multiversal mafia to whom Selena's in deep debt. If only she could remember why? The plot thickens as MOTHERLANDS drives toward its unbelievable climax.

    Motherlands #4 has continued the simple but powerful story of Tabitha and Selena being forced together after a life of estrangement. The way Spurrier, Stott and Woods, have made these characters look and feel so human is wonderful. Read Full Review

    Admittedly this issue was a bit slower than the last couple, but I think it's because it's building up to something big. In all likelihood Tabitha and Bubba are going to have a major interaction in the next issue, and I can't even begin to guess how that will go. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Apr 24, 2018

    Though both main characters are difficult to like, their story is a fascinating journey. We still don't know the truth about anything, really, and I doubt we'll end up with one big happy family, but it has been a wild, if noxious, ride. Read Full Review

    Each issue continues to be carefully lavished with some outstanding new element that ought to make readers pause. The narrative itself is less compelling though. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Josh Vermillion Apr 25, 2018

    Much like the rest of the series so far, this one isn't doing it for me. The conflict between mother and daughter is getting very old as it has been repeated in every issue. A lot of the plot developments in this issue seemed very forced in and the story continues to fall short of the premise. This is one Vertigo series that I would pass on. Read Full Review
