    Kirkham is the headline artist of this story, but Rags Morales (Part 2) and the team of Denys Cowan (pencils, Part 3) Bill Sienkiewicz (inks, Part 3) follow suit, giving Dark Nights Death Metal: Infinite Hour Exxxtreme #1 a revamped 90s feel " which is perfect for a Lobo story.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights: Death Metal " Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! is as ridiculous as its title would have you believe, as is befitting a comic starring Lobo. The writing is sharp, tight, and funny, the art is consistently excellent, and the story manages to stand on its own pretty well, while simultaneously supporting the greater Death Metal narrative. This is the comic book equivalent of a massive harmonic whammy dive: bombastic, loud, and 100% rock and roll. Pick it up, fellow dweebs. Read Full Review

    Lunacy. Madness. Rubbish. Utter Nonsense. All of these words describe this issue… But I loved it! Normally, this type of insanity just doesn't work for me. Nevertheless, it did in this DARK NIGHTS: DEATH METAL installment. Readers, it was pure fun as long as you can suspend some disbelief for about 20 minutes. Moreover, this issue is stellar even down to the last page. I mean, they don't call him the Main Man for nothing, do they?! Pick this issue up and let me know what you think. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights: Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! is a unique multiverse experience framing the "main-man" as the reluctant hero in a story filled with offensively crass versions of Lobo. It's a flawed, but an engaging tale that's creative in its attempt to show how Lobo would taint the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 10, 2020

    The ending actually hints that this might have some major impact on the event, but really, it's all about enjoying the silliness. Is it a great comic? No. But is it one I thoroughly enjoyed? Definitely. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 10, 2020

    All of the artists bring something interesting and unique to their interpretations of Lobo and his story. From the surreal to the absurd, every story has some beautifully done imagery perfectly matched to the character. Read Full Review

    The book doesn't take itself seriously while also taking itself absolutely seriously and the result is a kick-ass read from cover to cover that also looks cool and delivers quite a few full belly laughs. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Nov 10, 2020

    Yes, this book is nuts, but it's an essential, and hugely fun part of the ongoing story. I never thought I'd say this, but you really need to pick up this Lobo comic. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme may not be essential reading. Thankfully, it doesn't pretend to be that. Indeed, the comic is much like Lobo himself; unpretentious and straight-forward. It's a funny book for those who like high action and low comedy with solid artwork throughout. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights: Death Metal - Infinite Hour Exxxtreme #1 is yet another meaty Death Metal one-shot. This anthology isn't as essential as issues like Trinity Crisis have been, although it does elaborate on one very important element of the Metal mythos. Humphries, Cowan, and Sienkiewicz offer the visual and narrative highpoint, although the entire issue is enjoyable. There's more than a sensible chuckle to be had here, with Kirkham, Cowan and Sienkiewicz. A must-have for the Lobo lovers, and another solid one-shot for the Death Metal saga. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights: Death Metal - Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! is the ridiculous romp starring Lobo we didn't even know we needed to break up the super-serious atmosphere of this tie-in's main miniseries. Come for the fraggin' good time, stay for the laughs. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights: Death Metal: Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! #1 wasn't as Exxxtreme or fun as I was hoping. It might be just the thing for Lobo fans clamoring for some Main Man action, but if you are not a fan, you may want to sit this one out. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Nov 12, 2020

    This could have been a deeper dive point for such a story that DC has invested in. And to have a Lobo that was both a clever bounty hunter and possibly getting a conscience of sorts. That would have been cool. But we are left with a male Harley Quinn. Fragg it! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 10, 2020

    Dark Nights: Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! is just an ok tie-in. Yes, it probably tells something important that won't be covered in the main series but it also doesn't feature enough to stand out. It feels like something that probably could have been told in a few pages stretched out to over 30. Most of it is filler with the meat of the story featuring little explanation and a resolution that takes place in a few panels. It's about as filler as filler gets. Read Full Review
