    Demon Knights 0 is a fantastic origin to an already fantastic series. I loved seeing how Jason Blood and Etrigan got to be where they are now. Paul Cornell has been awesome on this book, and he really does well defining who these characters were and where they came from. Read Full Review

    Anything that Paul Cornell is currently writing is worth reading, but Demon Knights is that rare genre crossing work that only comes along once in a while, much like a writer of Cornell's ability only does. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure the issue makes a terrific case for the special connection between Jason Blood and Etrigan, but it's a fascinating look into the past nonetheless. Read Full Review

    This issue is a good read as a supliment to the regular title but definitely holds its own as a stand-alone. Though I know the #0 issues this month won't sell even remotely as well as the #1′s from last year's launch, I personally have been picking up a few for titles that I haven't been reading and in some cases have considered maybe trying out the regular titles. If you haven't been following ‘Demon Knights' try this issue out. It may convert you! Read Full Review

    For a zero issue, this does what it is supposed to do, giving a grounding in the back-story of one of the main team members. If I hadn't already been reading the title, this issue would have made me check it out. I give Demon Knights #0 4 stars""if you are at all interested in a fantasy story in the DCU, pick it up.

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Boren Sep 14, 2012

    Much like its sister book, “Stormwatch,” the zero issue of “Demon Knights” gives the reader exactly what was promised – a straight forward origin story for the Etrigan/Jason Blood, if not the entire team. It hints at ties with the Stormwatch team in the current DCU, and all in all, it is a pretty fun read. Whether you have been following “Demon Knights” for the past year, or want to jump on at this issue, consider picking it up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Sep 12, 2012

    If nothing else, the book looks damn good. Bernard Chang doesn't get to draw anything terribly exciting, but he makes the most of it. There is a brief rebellion in Hell, and it looks pretty great, but it doesn't last long.His character work is spectacular, and considering this book features a lot of people standing around talking, he is the perfect guy for the job. Ultimately, Chang is a fantastic artist that is sadly wasted on a somewhat pointless issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 17, 2012

    The rest of the regular cast of "Demon Knights" stays out of this story, giving Etrigan room to grow. This issue is stronger for that, able to focus on one character (well, two actually) and advance his tale, without having to balance the personalities and quirks of a handful or more. I've enjoyed the issues of this title that I've sampled and "Demon Knights" #0 is no exception. It is, however, a sterling example of what this title is capable of producing. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jay Mattson Sep 19, 2012

    This is the kind of issue that exemplifies the aim of the New 52 as a cultural project"Paul Cornell has taken a character who had become a bit long in the tooth pre-reboot, and written a fresh take on said character that's similar to the original, but takes enough liberties that the story becomes its own. Demon Knights #0 says what it needs to say without becoming overdeveloped or annoyingly bogged down in it's own mythology, something that Cornell could have easily succumbed to in a tale of magic, demons, and betrayal.
