Kingdoms are divided. Monarchs have fallen. Families have been torn apart. The Kingdom of Storms, the Amazons, and the Els are on the brink of all-out war. Can Constantine, Lois Lane, and Harley Quinn stop what's coming? Or is the prophecy correct? Do Superman and his family have to die to save the world?

    If there were any concerns that the series was starting to lose any momentum, Taylor, Putri and company place those fears in the stockade. This is shaping up to be the most memorable must-read non-continuity events since DCeased and its definitely worth catching up if youve skipped it so far. Read Full Review

    This is a remarkable series, delivered with sure hands, and no faltering. If you aren't reading it by now you are missing out. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 2, 2022

    I really like the strategies and machinations happening behind the scenes, the plotters trying to secure victories in battle. The hints of this third power playing with this world like a chess board is delicious as I wait for the reveal. The Putri art is incredibly lush. This is one of those books that I thumb through almost immediately after I read it just looking at the art.  Read Full Review

    Dark Knights of Steel #6 ends the first half of the story with a couple of reveals, some character work, and me wanting the next issue now!  I said it before, but this is Tom Taylor's best Elseworlds story since Injustice. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 26, 2022

    Add in a shocking reveal about the Demon Etrigan's host in this world, as well as a possible resurrection, and this remains one of the most intriguing Elseworlds the DC universe has had in a very long time. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Sharna Jahangir Apr 30, 2022

    I started collecting this series because of the creative team, but now I'm in love with the new characterizations of my favorite heroes and the amazing visuals. The lore is such a fun take, and I'm really enjoying the mixed dynamics. Those who you think are friends, are foes, and those who are foes are friends. Tom Taylor is an expert on twists, and I am hoping for so many more in the months to come. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 2, 2022

    Just like past issues, there's a lot to like here. Putri's artwork is fantastic throughout with a distinctive look that captures the characters original general designs well while making them feel like they belong in this world. The various locations are all fairly distinctive overall and the costuming is great throughout. It's a really strong visual treat that keeps me entertained. The story is just as engaging as Taylor's other non-continuity books but without the same level/scale of violence and destruction. And it feels like there's a much clearer laid-out plot and story at work here that makes each new tease a delight to unearth. I can't wait to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 27, 2022

    Dark Knights of Steel #6 kicks off the second half of the story and keeps things moving and up in the air. Can war be prevented? Will the prophecy be fulfilled? It delivers just enough unexpected to keep the readers guessing what will happen next and most importantly, it's a hell of a lot of fun. Another fantastic issue for a series and world I hope we get more of. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 30, 2022

    Dark Knights of Steel #6 is a strong end to the first half of this epic. Tom Taylor and Yasmine Putri split the focus of the story in a balanced way to make sure the story of each side of the coming war is told. With sides clearly chosen there is a lot to be intrigued about as major decisions are made that make the second half of Dark Knights of Steel hard to predict how everything will turn out. That unpredictability makes it even more exciting to get future issues of Dark Knights of Steel to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Apr 26, 2022

    Tom Taylor has managed to concoct a competent who-dun-it in the middle of a high fantasy Elseworld story. However, for a story centered on The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel, it has more of a wider Justice League style reach, more often focusing on characters like Constantine, Wonder Woman, and others.

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 26, 2022

    Dark Knights of Steel #6 is good, but slower-paced installment that's more about setting things up. It's a bit of a surprise that this issue lacks huge twists and turns since every issue before it harbored some huge revelation. Still, it's an entertaining ride that mixes things up in a way that's hard to resist. Read Full Review
