    Knighted is the best book of its kind since Irredeemable and sure to bring a smile to Batman fans who enjoy a good joke. And make no mistake " this book is a very good joke. Yet it may also be a good foundation for a new superhero universe. Read Full Review

    Stories like the Boys, Invincible and now Knighted help knock superheroes off the pedestal we've put them on as a society.

    Overall Knighted #1 does a great job of incorporating a new story into AWA's The Resistance Universe . Even if one has not read the previous titles, Knighted #1 can be enjoyed as is. Hurwitz has created a wildly relatable character who's journey is shaping up to be captivating and fun as hell to read. Read Full Review

    Writer Gregg Hurwitz approaches this material with all the subtlety of a hammer to the face but in the same way that Garth Ennis' The Boys is a satirical send-up that is routinely in your face. Read Full Review
