It wasn't a coincidence that the Shining Knight found herself in Little Spring as the Horde massed at the village gates. She's on a quest, and has been all her long life whether she's known it or not! Now, a powerful vision will reveal to her the true stakes of the battle for Little Spring and pull back the curtain on one of the biggest secrets in the DC Universe! Don't miss "Merlin Watches The Storm," featuring guest art by the sensational Mike Choi (X-Force)! And yes, "storm" is a hint.

    Finally, an origin issue. I am extremely happy. Basically, if you never heard of Shining Knight, this issue gives you a crash course into her history. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 19, 2011

    A lot of fascinating portents for the future of this series, but we really go nowhere in terms of the present plot. Cornell makes it worth reading, however, with strong narration and rich development. Read Full Review

    Outside stalling the forward-moving plot, issue #4 of Demon Knights is another solid entry in this series. Paul Cornell obviously has long-term plans for this cast of characters, and judging from what this issue offers, I think we should all be excited to see where this all leads. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Dec 18, 2011

    I've been enjoying the heck out of this book, but it seems to have suddenly gotten a lot more depth than suggested in previous issues. I'm not entirely certain how I feel about that, but I'll definitely be interested to see how the visions and the various twists play out in the issues to come. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Dec 22, 2011

    The first two issues of this story were packed with action, but the last two have slowed the overall story down. If the six issue arc is what the writer and artists are going for, these two issues are the mid-arc drag. More action! More fighty-fighty and punchy-punchy are needed! Though we get a look at Shining Knight's origin and the art is pretty to look at, the overall book moves very slow. I like the sword and sorcery, and I can't wait for big battle to break out. Demon Knights is a great ensemble piece, but focusing on a single character for the entire issue earns Demon Knights #4 2 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
