    DC vs. Vampires: Killers is a solid addition to the event. It's another key comic and part of the story that just wouldn't fit well in the main series. It's a must for those already reading the series and might get those not interested in checking it out. Read Full Review

    The main narrative has been strong, but these flash-forwards haven't really grabbed me so far. Read Full Review

    DC vs. Vampires: Killers #1 can be skipped entirely, which is a shame since we haven't gotten a new issue of the main series in months.  I am still looking forward to continuing the series, but I will admit that my enthusiasm is waning, partly from the delays and partly from these lackluster tie-ins.

    DC vs. Vampires: Killers #1 is not an essential entry into the budding Vamps-verse, but its fun if uneven character study for Harley Quinn. Fans of the character, or just want to see more of the world controlled by the vampires may enjoy this issue, but otherwise, this may not be the book for those looking for a similar aesthetic as the main title. The art and coloring are inconsistent, highlighting just how distracting two distinct styles can be on a title when set next to one another. In a vacuum, this issue is a solid, fun one-shot, but it cant help but shrink against the stunning art and coloring of the main title and Otto Schmidt. With more tie-ins confirmed for this universe, it will be interesting to see if this inconsistent style continues, or if those other works will feel more cohesive with the foundation that the main title set.

    DC vs. Vampires started out strong, but it feels like the momentum is slipping. These one-off specials arent helping and just continue making the maxi-series seem like its losing its bite. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Jun 28, 2022

    DC vs. Vampires: Killers takes another big step in moving DC vs. Vampires' story forward. However, some poor artwork, dialogue, and continued wonky characterization for Harley make it so I can't call this comic good. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, the issue feels weightless, as though its a story that didn't need to be told outside of the main series, making it a step below the other comic that explored Damian Wayne as a bloodsucker of Gotham City. Read Full Review
