    Taylor teased that this is the penultimate issue of the first volume suggesting there's more to come. If Dark Knights of Steel takes a DCeased type path with numerous sequels that's incredibly exciting while assuring there's another DC title to keep on the must-read list. Read Full Review

    It'll be sad to see this series end. I hope there will be more callbacks to this universe, and I'm looking forward to the final battle. Dark Knights of Steel #11 was sincerely a fun and enticing issue to read, and I'm happy I've added it to my collection. As an avid Superman and Batman fan, this is one sweet read. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 21, 2023

    This issue has a lot of things going on and it reads great and looks great. I love watching the dynamics of the characters in this setting and configuration and the way we get real change, real honesty, and follow-through on events to give it all weight. This has been a strong series since the start and I'm hopeful it can stick the landing with all that it has to get done and all the characters it has to service – in both big and small ways. It's a good setup for the finale and leaves me wanting to see just how bad it can go for some and what twists and turns might come from it (and potential spinoff material as well1). Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Jun 6, 2023

    Despite being a quieter and introspective issue, Tom Taylor uses the opportunity to mend broken character relationships. Siblings, mentors, allies, and enemies all get a chance to reconnect in the interest of the bigger picture. Even the antagonists have a moment to breathe on the page and set the stakes for the finale. Outside of a few nitpicks, the illustration, color, and framing choices give the book a cinematic tone and quality that I appreciate. Some readers may find the focus on the relationships melodramatic, but I personally value character development over action. Overall, this is a fantastic penultimate issue that clearly bets it all on the finale. Judging by the cliffhanger, there may be a lot more surprises in the chamber. Read Full Review

    This issue mostly serves as a way for the collective cast to take a breath and take in and react to all the twists they've experienced over the past few issues. It's here that Taylor's writing really shines, as he finds ways to showcase his understanding of the DC characters even when they're in new and radically different environments. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Boyd Jun 6, 2023

    Dark Knights of Steel #11 is a good wrap up of several character arcs and filled with great art as it sets up the final issue. However, it is bogged down by slow pacing and delays, with villains who feel like less of a threat and more of a nuisance. Read Full Review
