The grand finale! With the dying embers of their hope rekindled at the eleventh hour, what’s left of John Constantine’s Suicide Squad attempts to traverse the badlands with precious cargo in tow. But just as final victory over the vampires and their endless night seems all but assured, the team must contend with their most powerful and terrifying enemy yet: Baron Cinder himself. In the backup, what happened to Poison Ivy when the world ended…?

    The finale of the main series comes next week, so this final miniseries installment feels like a prelude of sortsbut it's hard to see the actual finale being more explosive than this. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Dec 20, 2022

    Matthew Rosenberg revived the classic All-Out War series to build up and tear down a family of unlikely soldiers. While it began with a search for Batman, both heroes and villains redeemed themselves in battle for the greater good. Although the story finds strength in the bonds made under traumatic stress, it struggles to keep a coherent direction through most of the story. Fortunately, the art always delivers on its pulp epic themes, despite sometimes feeling like stiff cut outs. Overall, it is a gloomy six issue story, but it has the action and appeal of something like Smoking Aces. However, I wish things led to a more meaningful direction. As a standalone, it disservices its own cast to set up further stories while ignoring its own. I hope when DC Vs. Vampires does reach a conclusion, it feels more earned. Read Full Review

    Wow.

    Just wow. By far the best issue in the whole event. Rosenberg blew Tynion out of the water. I never thought I would write it.

    It's explosive, way more cohesive and the art finally pays off instead of being irritating like in first issue. Since Matthew doesn't have to explain some nonsensical parts Tynion wrote hismelf i to the corner with this tie in can focus on FUN. And it does. In a good, bloody fashion

    The conclusion to what has to be the best comic from 2022 with Deathstroke. I must admit that this issue was the weakest of all but not bad by any means. Another fun read as you can expect from this series, i guess my problem is the somewhat predictable ending. Anyway, if you fallowed the series so far you're going to read this regardless.

    The backup was excellent as always, but the main story uneven.

    This is more of a score for the series as a whole. A bit uneven, got better as it advanced but isn't as good as the main series. Not sure if some of the character choices were the right ones (I liked Mary Marvel a lot, also Midnighter worked very well but I don't think they did much with Azrael, Bane or Booster Gold). That final twist was good.

    The backups were all excellent, though. Batgirl, Nightwing, Poison Ivy... All great, hope to see more of those teams if they want to continue this series.

    HEAVY SPOILERS AHEAD:

    Man this was depressing. As always Mary is the MVP of this story and I wonder if she'll appear int he main series after that ending (?).

    I really, really liked that final twist with Deadman. I was really wondering about Deathstroke's characterization in some moments and now I really wonder how many of them could have been Deadman, specially because we know that he's been in the background following the team all along and Constatine makes clear there was manipulation involved. The ambiguity also makes for a better story than just telling outright.

    Midnighter is always awesome and I loved that gag with him at the end.

    I'm conflicted about the use of Superman in this, though. On more

    I feel the artwork held this series back a bit. The ilustrations were *great* and the quiet moments thus work very well, but the panel-to-panel communication isn't as great and the black-and-white-and-red made action and chaotic scenes difficult to read.

    Compare that to the artwork in the backups, which, despite being also bichromatic, worked much better.
