What happens when a time-traveling assassin and a spy from 1944 try to kill each other?

For a price, a top-secret assassination organization will travel through time and interfere with watershed moments. Trained as the agency's top assassin, Maya is sent to kill Virginia Hall, the deadliest spy of WWII. Charged with carrying important plans about the invasion of Normandy to the Allied troops, Virginia's death would have a cataclysmic effect on WWII as we know it.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 19, 2020

    With this review copy being uncolored, I really can't say too much about the art beyond I like the designs that I can see here and the flow of the story is solid. A color job can radically change how a book looks and I have no doubt that Lauren Affe can take the appealing artwork here and make it even more engaging and appealing. Phillips' storyline is definitely nicely done here as we get some of the basics with plenty more to be learned so that it's not an overload of information. It's smooth and straightforward and leaves you at the end wanting more, which is always a good thing. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Jarred A. Lujn Mar 17, 2020

    While we dont get the full blown pulpy time travelling spy plot just yet, Artemis and the Assassin #1 offers up a set of characters that are as exciting, mysterious, and fun as the world they inhibit. There is a ton of promise here and a team that is completely capable of executing it. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Danilo To Mar 19, 2020

    Despite its few flaws, Artemis & The Assassin promises to be an interesting new series from Aftershock. If you're interested in time-traveling agencies like I am, it is worth giving it a go in order to support the publication. But it also might be worth waiting on the next chapter to see how the story engages. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Rowan Grover Mar 19, 2020

    A flashy debut that has some promise, but feels hollow and oddly executed in a lot of areas. Read Full Review
