    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Feb 13, 2013

    I really enjoyed the way this issue is structured. It opens with Etrigan, moves forward and delves into other characters before non chalantly bringing the relationship between Jason and Etrigan back into focus once again. I think the fact that Venditti did this so discretely is what made the story more fun to read. The layout was great and very organized: reading this I could tell exactly where Venditti's beats are . He definitely had some things he wanted to accomplish in this issue and he did so, but not without leaving some loose ends and cliff hangers for fans of this series to look forward to in the coming issues. The issue is very well written, Venditti gets these characters and knows their respective voices and he is clearly weaving a story that is engaging and fun for both old and new readers alike. This is also a great jumping on point for anyone interested in diving in. Read Full Review

    Though the issue finds itself bloated with one narrative thread too many, Venditti does his best to negotiate them all while allowing the reader to see a convergence of plot lines on the horizon. Again, if you aren't reading Demon Knights, you're missing out on one of DC's most cleverly subversive titles. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Feb 17, 2013

    As the 'New 52' moves forward, cohesion amongst titles has become an extremely important aspect of the storytelling process. Seeing Cain and his vampire horde traveling through Medieval Europe adds more credence and meaning to the events of I, Vampire, and we've already seen Etrigan pop up in Stormwatch. Robert Vendetti has stated that he's got a long-term game plan in place for the series, and Demon Knights #17 is another great example of how the setting for this title allows for fantastic storytelling because of it's distance from the rest of the DCnU.

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Feb 18, 2013

    Chang's art is detailed and adds layers to the rich fantasy world Vendetti is playing in. His woman are beautiful without being overtly sexist, something that is all too rare these days. He can do it all, from Amazons, to vampires, to demons, to bison riders. Chang captures the spirit of Demon Knights perfectly, combining fantasy elements with comedic timing to give readers a truly unique reading experience. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 16, 2013

    All in all, a rather slow and mostly redundant issue, though at the very least it gives you confidence that Venditti knows what he's doing. Read Full Review
