    Deathmatch is a “Top 10″ series for me (out of >110 titles read this month), so absolutely worth checking out. The final panel in this issue was another “WOW!” moment that both evokes an image of Big 2 events and makes me want to come back for issue #7 so I can see the spin Paul Jenkins is going to put on it. This series is highly recommended, though not something to jump on board with mid-story. Check it out in collected editions if you missed it in monthly issues. Read Full Review

    So, because Deathmatch is beginning to show signs of being an overpowered, yet stuck beast (much like the heroes within its pages), and this issue isn’t as captivating and incendiary as the blowout that was issue five, I have to drop it a point. Which, if my math is right, takes it down to just being “fucking awesome!” Read Full Review

    In a book that is literally about characters battling to the death in a "match," it's nice that Jenkins is taking the time to really think about what might make these pair ups interesting and give the battles an incisive physicality. It's the polar opposite of lazy superhero writing and is the kind of smart writing that makes this surprise title stands out from the superhero comics crowd. Read Full Review
