    The only disappointment I have with this story is that theres seemingly not more in the pipeline. The DC Universe needs more women like Kass Sage and I am eager to discover where she can show up next. Read Full Review

    The ending is just bitter"no sweetness here"but some of that once in a while is not a bad thing. While the story itself is not new, the delivery has such impact, you're left reeling from its emotional beats for quite a while afterwards. Read Full Review

    This book is the payoff to the enjoyable Vandal Savage arc of DC Universe Presents, and it provides a satisfying capstone for the story. In retrospect, the 3-issue collaboration between Chang and Robinson effectively explores and expands Savage family lore, presenting theVandal Savagefrom an interestingnew perspective. The explanation for Swan Killer's physicalappearance was rather weak, and it looked as though Chang might have gotten slightly enthusiastic at times with the highlights that he used while coloring his characters. However, this issue is another strong episode in the Savage tale. Fans who have chosen to sit this arc out would do well to rectify their error. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jul 20, 2012

    DC Universe Presents exists to give lesser-known characters a bigger spotlight. And though Vandal Savage is hardly "lesser known", beyond this arc, he's only featured in the pages of Demon Knights, a title set centuries in the past. Robinson's fun romp into the arena of psychological thriller is just fun. It's not too original, hardly unique in it's narrative structure, and Savage is presented as a stereotypically remorseless killer (who believes he's been) gifted with immortality. Really, it comes down to Robinson's handling of each character and the relationships between them that really sell "Savage" as an excellent part of DC's 'New 52' universe. Read Full Review

    "DC Universe Presents" #11 ends this storyline in not as good of a spot as it began, but overall it wasn't a bad story by any stretch of the imagination. Rather, it just didn't live up to its potential the way I wished it had. Script hiccup aside, this book looks great. If Chang keeps drawing every other "DC Universe Presents" story, I know I'll keep coming back to see what he does next. With his work here and earlier on "Superman" and "Supergirl," it's been a great couple of years for Chang. If you haven't seen what he's been doing lately, take a look. You'll like what you'll see.
