    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 3, 2016

    Unfollow continues to be one of my favorite month-to-month readers from Vertigo. It's very grounded in reality, as bizarre as that may sound, and an easy story to connect with. Williams, Dowling, and Winter have created something very accessible that's intriguing and hooks the reader in. If you're thinking about trying out a new Vertigo series, go to this one first.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 3, 2016

    Chilling, shocking and utterly compelling, Unfollow is your new favourite series, even if you dont know it yet. An ensemble thriller of the highest order, Unfollow has leapfrogged its way to the head of Vertigos current pack no small feat, given the sheer quality of titles being released and has cemented its place on my pull list for as long as Williams and Dowling care to keep making it.

    Word Of The Nerd - Zina Hutton Feb 4, 2016

    Unfollow #4 ends with a death that probably isn't as open-ended as you think. As you look at that last page, imagine a camera zooming in on the crowd. In situations like these, the murderer is usually pretty obvious. I have a feeling though, that things aren't ever going to be as cut and dried as they seem. That sort of uncertainty is jus tone of the things that make Unfollow #4 great and unsettling. What will next month bring? More death? More violence? More middle aged white people humping on a dance floor in an attempt to ignore their impending doom? Read Full Review

    What could have easily been a simple, straightforward riff on Battle Royale is developing into something much more. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Feb 5, 2016

    “Unfollow” #4 is an excellent next chapter for what is quickly becoming one of Vertigo's stars. The series is really settling in and finding it's groove. I'm anxious for more. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Chris Smith Feb 3, 2016

    While the popular concept of humans hunting one another on an island is definitely not original, it is a really fun idea for a comic. I think Williams using the manhunt premise is a great springboard to dissect modern humanity, especially if technology gets involved. It's hard to say where this comic will go being only four issues in, but so far it's exciting, feels fresh, and has been a wild ride. Williams really nails it when it comes to a diverse cast of characters, so far only a handful have been introduced, but there's a lot of diversity which definitely helps the comic feel modern. These characters all come from different walks of life, some are already rich, some are desperately poor, but all have something to offer to the story. Most of them will probably die though in the inevitable hunt that will leave the 140 scattered across the island, too bad. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Erlingur Einarsson Feb 11, 2016

    Underwhelming fourth entry into a story that offers rich possibilities. Some stale conversations and lack of vivacity dulls a potentially very good comic. Read Full Review
