    Following The Nerd - Julz Hendricks Jan 12, 2014

    The art is superb, and I like the fact that there were 2 artists working on it. The art changes once we see Constantine and Swamp thing. Sepulveda uses warm orange colors and the faces look amazing. I'm not too familiar with his work, but these 2 pages made me a fan. Blanco's colors are blues and reds. The detail in the panels fits the story that is being told. I am very happy with how this issue looks. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jan 11, 2014

    So overall, a damn fantastic issue. There are some references to previous issues of Constantine and Pandora, but I don't think that those are absolutely essential reading if you are trade-waiting or something. Phantom Stranger and Justice League Dark are perfectly paired up however and I would suggest reading both right now. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 8, 2014

    How is it that the Phantom Stranger can remain so good, all the time?  It's fun, emotional, action packed and even has God talking through a Scottish Terrier.  This book has everything.  Man crush aside, this is a great book month after month, and is a great issue for Forever Evil: Blight.  If you're not reading Phantom Stranger yet, then the hell with you, get on the trolley already.  This issue is great, and reminds me while Phantom Stranger is one of my favorite titles in the New 52.

    Nerds On The Rocks - Frank Fuentes Jan 9, 2014

    I sure hope people are reading this book. It's certainly a high priority on my pulllist because I know DeMatteis won't fail to entertain. Characters, story and art were all very solid. Don't know what it is about the art but it looked exceptionally great in this book. It fit the overall tone of the book and had a pleasing simplistic aesthetic. Anyone following Forever Evil should definitely pick this up because there are a couple moments that hint at what can be expected in the final issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Jan 9, 2014

    So the last two parts have added quite a bit of steam to a lackluster storyline. Hopefully the next issues ofTrinity of Sin: PandoraandConstantinedon't disappoint like they have been. I am hopeful that writer Ray Fawkes can continue what DeMatteis has set up, or at least, just keep the plot moving forward. What I fear is that the next two parts will just be more of the same thing, though. I hope I'm wrong. Because, on its surface, this is actually a very interesting story. And a great companion piece to the main event. Blight is now interesting and the Stranger's decisions should have some potentially awesome consequences. Also: I'd love to see more Zauriel. And maybe a full-blown "Heaven VS Hell" war on Earth. That would be pretty sweet, too. Here's to staying optimistic! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Max Dweck Jan 11, 2014

    As an issue of Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger, this is a really good book, which makes a huge leap in the Phantom Stranger's character arc that's sure to cause some big things to happen to him in the future. As an issue of the "Forever Evil: Blight" crossover, it leaves a lot to be desired, and while it may be unfair to call it a waste of time, it could certainly do more for those readers who are spending four times as much money on this crossover just because one book they happen to read is in it. It's still a really good read overall, but it could use some improvement. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Jan 9, 2014

    The characters are great and really makes you want to know more about them. Blight, the villain of the comic really shows how evil he is and how powerful to make this crossover worth wild. Heck this issue like the last issue makes you want to read more about the story from what happen before and to see whats to come. I suggest to pick this up as Trinity of Sin: Phantom Stranger is a series that knows how to get more readers. Read Full Review
