    Weekly Comic Book Review - Ben Berger Sep 8, 2008

    Devil Slayer #1, is the perfect setup for this mini-series. The choice to make the reader wait to see the demons, to commit an entire issue to Danny and his back-story works so incredibly well. Keene and Samnee compliment each other greatly, and if they can keep this up they've got a winner on their hands. I was expecting demons right away and now I'm glad I didn't get it. If this sounds up your alley, or close to it, don't miss this book. Read Full Review

    Ultimately my gripes with this title are minimal at best. Fans of the macabre should definitely keep their eyes on this one, as Keene has written his fair share of notable horror stories in the past. It's a safe bet that things will only get better from here. Read Full Review

    I don't know why this is labeled as a "Dead of Night" comic, since it has nothing to link it to the previous, poorly-received series, and I assume the "Devil-Slayer" concept will pop up sooner rather than later. But so far it's just a decently written Iraq war comic with a bit of devilishness at the end. I hope Keene has something a bit more unique planned for the next few issues. Read Full Review

    I'm curious to see where this one goes. I've been more impressed with narrative voices of the first issues of Terror, Inc. and Foolkiller, but neither really made me interested enough to check out their second issues. So Devil Slayer has that going for it. Slow and steady wins the race, as they say. Read Full Review
