It's the curtain call. Tonight, the people were so fine. They waited there in line. And when they got up on their feet, they made the show. And that was sweet. But I can hear the sound. Of slamming doors and folding chairs. And that's a sound they'll never know - oh, sorry those are the lyrics to Jackson Browne's The Load Out. Whoops.
This is it. The final act. The last punchline. Fame has torn the Brice family apart. Can their love bring them back together?

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 21, 2021

    Knock 'em Dead has been a great book from start to finish with just about everything it did. Rahal's script worked a familiar story in a great way and did some fascinating things in terms of execution. Monaco's artwork, enhanced beautifully by Milla's color design, really delivered something magical at times that just took it to a whole other level. This was a really good story that works on several levels and has some solid repeat reading elements to it that make it an easy pickup. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and this ending feels just right at five issues where it takes us all the way down the line to show just how terrible their lives get, even when they get it all. Really great stuff and a creative team that I hope finds reason to work together again. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Brendan M. Allen Apr 26, 2021

    Knock 'Em Dead is fantastic. I love the concept. I love the twist. I love how the whole thing comes crashing down here in the bottom of the ninth. I do wish it was stretched out a few more chapters. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 3, 2021

    Knock Em Dead started with a great hook about a guy literally dying to pursue his dream of being a stand-up comic. It jumps ahead a bit and would have benefited with a little more room to tell this story. What shines through is the great character work that at times proves to be even more frightening than the ghosts. Read Full Review

    As with the rest of the series, the issue has stellar visuals, but it's all wrapped around a confused and muddled half-story. Read Full Review
