    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Jan 18, 2015

    No changes on the art team and that's just as well since Mikel Janin, Jeromy Cox and Carlos M. Mangual are superb in every way. Even though the characterwork and the backgrounds are second to none in this issue, I think the best part is when Dick and Helena are attacked by a zombie orca with scorpion legs. That's an utterly terrifying image to imagine and to see the execution of the idea, well that's something else. In other things, the fight between Dick and Midnighter is pretty good too, fluid and fast-moving. Loved every second of it. And the artists end on a great note too, with a great panel showing off the location of the Midnighter's HQ. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 14, 2015

    Grayson was already one of my favorite books on the shelf, but by giving us a peek at the bigger picture, Tim Seeley and Tom King have put it right on top.  Every Dick Grayson fan (and comic fans in general) should be reading this book.  Seeley and King know Dick and Mikel Janin's art is just plain great. Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 14, 2015

    Grayson #6 is great, really diving into the story and providing a bunch of payoff for storylines and subplots that have developed so far. This issue provides some great writing, character, and artwork — all of which you have come to expect from this book. I have a feeling the first real arc will be coming to a close very soon and with how everything has been building, it will be incredible. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - J.A. Micheline Jan 14, 2015

    Grayson #6 continues to embody everything that is great about the run as a whole. What we have here is an incredibly progressive, fun, and well-written book that pretty much everyone should be reading, whose art and colors are doing things that are well-worth emulating in other titles. Do not miss it. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Yamini C Jan 14, 2015

    Overall, the creative team have managed to pack in a whole lot of mythology building, plot development and character study into a story that is both emotional and exciting. My hope forGraysonin 2015 (his 75th year of existence!) is that Seeley, King, Janin & Co. get to stay on the book and tell the stories they want to, because creatively it's been a long time since Dick Grayson had it this good: this first issue of the year has gone above and beyond in delivering a nuanced, evocative and fun tale. Fingers crossed they can keep up the momentum in the next two issues before we hit the Convergence hiatus. Read Full Review

    Grayson is a very well written, well drawn and well coloured book. You can see the creative team must take a lot of pride in what they do and this is probably rivalling, if not leading, the best DC book on the shelf at the moment. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jan 15, 2015

    Overall: Full of action and great character moments, this issue excites and satisfies on almost all levels and confirms that the team of Seeley, King, and Jann know what they're doing (if there were any doubters left). True to the spy genre, we're treated to just as many new questions as we are given answers, but the mysteries are compelling and build organically rather than feeling contrived, and the treatment of Dick Grayson is one of the best uses of the character in years.

    Grayson #6 is another excellent installment in a series that continues to exceed expectations. Seeley, King, Janin, and Cox place no limitations upon themselves, and have discovered a wide swath of stories worth telling as a result. Its impossible to know where Dick Grayson is going next or what the experience may be like, but its bound to be good comics. Read Full Review

    Overall a great issue that brought some light to the overall story and shed some answers onto characters like Minos and Midnighter. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 15, 2015

    Tim Seeley, Tom King and Mikel Janin give Dick Grayson a nice one-on-one against his rival the Midnighter, and in so doing, provides a nice character piece for this superhero turned spy. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Jan 15, 2015

    hat said, this series is still proving to showcase Grayson's most unexpected challenges yet. Mikel Janin excels at illustrating just how strange the world of Spyral is with interesting character designs, trippy layouts, and exaggerated action scenes. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Jan 19, 2015

    Despite the problems with the ending, Grayson #6 is still a solid read, filled with exciting visuals and an unexpected care toward its characters. Tim Seeley, Tom King, Mikel Janin, and Jeromy Cox deliver a sleek, fast paced adventure story that lights a bright fuse for the rest of the arc. One thing that has sustained Grayson so far is how absolutely weird it is willing to be. Reading Grayson is like getting the star high school quarterback into The Invisibles. It is so much fun to see good looking people engaged in surreal things or talking about the arcane details of some fringe idea. That is Grayson's niche; it is for people who like seeing hot people taking on weird enemies with even stranger bosses. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jan 16, 2015

    Theres a lot going on in this issue. From the nanocytes introduced in Blackhawks #1 3 years ago, to the word play with Dick being a Spider-Man, if you pay attention closely, youll be rewarded. Grayson continues to be an enjoyable book. However, this issue will read better as part of the overall story arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jan 19, 2015

    I like the ideas behind "Grayson" #6 and the series as a whole, but it still feels very disjointed and not quite there. Whatever big ideas are in the writers' heads, it never comes out as smoothly. I'll keep reading because there's always something in each issue that clicks together perfectly but, at the same time, it's hard to keep from hoping that the entire comic could do so as well. Fingers crossed, it'll get there before too much longer. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Jonathan Schultz Jan 16, 2015

    The plot of this issue seemed all over the place and I feel like it didn't move forward all that much. At least I can now say I gave it a chance. Read Full Review
