    Knight and Squire was a bright spot in my monthly comics, and it will be sorely missed. Cheers folks, and I'll see you in the trade! Read Full Review

    An appropriate finish to a very unusual series. Its satisfying in a thoughtful way, though you kind of wish it had done more in the action department. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Mar 23, 2011

    Cornell really has the voice of England's heroes down. Everyone feels unique while still fitting into the greater patchwork of the community and we get to play with the differences and similarities between UK and the States with all of Joker's complaining. Also, Squire as the brains behind everything is fun. Knight's not played as dumb, but it is obvious that Squire is almost always the one with the plan. The only reason I wouldn't straight out recommend this issue is if you don't have access to the rest of the series you'll be missing out on much of what's going on, for that and that alone it drops to a 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you can't find the back issues, get the trade when it comes out as the miniseries as a whole was definitely 5 of 5. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure if this mini series is going to have a follow up for some kind of ongoing but Cornell certainly has created a wide range of characters for the book. This comic is a good read and offers up a fun look at what heroes are like set in Britain written by a Brit. This issue is definitely worth picking up, if nothing more than for the bonus of having the Joker in it talking imitating the English. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Mar 21, 2011

    However, for the most part this is merely a slightly-above-average story, told fairly well -- and while that's hardly the worst thing you could hope for from a superhero comic, it's not up to the high standards set by the book's previous issues. Read Full Review

    The Joker goes after the easy-going superheroes of England and Knight and Squire have to rally their mates to stop him in the final issue of this miniseries showcasing the British version of Batman and Robin.Frankly, the issue is a disappointment largely because it IS too easy-going. The Joker seems to be killing people at will yet the heroes of England take too much time going after him and when they do finally confront him, they basically just take him into custody-- no massive struggle, no life-and-death battle. He just walks into their arms.The art, like the story, is also too humdrum. It doesn't effectively communicate the growing fear and concern in the British superhero community over the new, more ruthless threat in their midst. Perhaps all this is just the usual British stiff-upper lip at work, not to panic and take everything in stride but this is a comic book after all and people read these things expecting to see action and suspense.The funniest part of the story is the Jok Read Full Review
