    I really have been enjoying this series and I think Venditti has done a fantastic job taking on these interesting characters and playing with their relationships a little bit. This has been an incredibly exciting issue, and the story that we get here is definitely one that continues to escalate and get more and more interesting. The art is really fantastic, and very complimentary to the story being told here, which is great. The result is another solid issue and one that is bound to pique the interest of anyone fascinated by and invested in the world of Etrigan and his supporting cast. As far as a jumping on point, you can definitely start your journey here as it is, for the most part, easy to follow along. You may, however, not get the most out of the story if you don't at the very least read the previous issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Dave Conde Mar 17, 2013

    I give Demon Knights #18 three stars""not bad but not as good as it has been. It's a good fantasy story with interesting, differentiated characters. Most of the issues I had with it could be fixed next issue or put into new context. And faint though the praise may be, it's still my favorite thing published by DC lately. Read Full Review

    From a purely technical standpoint, it's a well-executed issue, but somehow it lacks heart and life. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something's missing. Read Full Review

    While the series is flagging a bit after Venditti's curveball opener, he ultimately does hit the plot points he needs to set us up for a satisfying conclusion to his opening arc. Because Bernard Chang looks as compelling as he does, it's easier to forgive some of the excess dialogue in this book " Chang makes it visual enough for us to move with. They may be a niche market, but there's a lot of potential to Demon Knights that is palpable just by reading it, and I'm feeling pretty confident that upswing will continue to next month.

    IGN - Poet Mase Mar 13, 2013

    If you don't mind the lack of real intrigue or the inclusion of strange elements like vampires that attack near dawn or the unlikely possibility that torture by Vandal Savage is worse than torture in Hell, then you might find this comic to be worth your money. The fact of the matter is that there's not a ton to this book. I'm hoping that I see something worthwhile from this title soon, but that hope is fading with every issue. Read Full Review
