    THE HUMAN TARGET is not just a sexy series with smooth storytelling and even smoother visuals. It also packs one hell of a punch.This issue ends out the first half of the series with a bang, promising that season two will see these characters engaging in a completely different story.

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Apr 20, 2022

    The shocking events of The Human Target #6 make it clear that Tom King's series is outside of the official continuity or that it should be. However, that doesn't prevent it from being a damn good story. It's going to be a long summer, waiting for the series to resume, but I have high expectations that it will be worth the wait.

    I love the classic style of the art and how perfectly it matches the tone and mood of the story. It is a wonderful visual interpretation of noir style imagery. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Mar 23, 2022

    Smallwood, King and Cowles are making one of the best noir thrillers of the year. Though the series will be taking a break for a while, I cant wait for its inevitable return and the fallout that this issue itself will bring! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Mar 22, 2022

    The last issue of The Human Target before its hiatus leaves the fans wanting more, ending on quite a cliffhanger as we get passion, a lovers' quarrel, and that last page surprise will make this wait insufferable! Tom King and Greg Smallwood deliver in this one-two punch in terms of art and story. I know I'll be racking my brains to figure things out before this series returns. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 24, 2022

    To be honest, this noir-tinged Justice League should bug me, but I find myself drawn in by the beautiful art and the skillful detective trappings of it all, even when the story gets darker than I ever expected. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 28, 2022

    We may not get much in the way of moving the case forward (with Ice continuing to be a distraction), or any new cameos from the Justice League International, but we do get a return in the jealous Guy Gardner who attempts to break-up the pair of squabbling lovers and faces Ice's fury. The scene, and its aftermath remind us that we are in a Black Label comic, separate from the current continuity of the DC Universe. As for the case, Chance needs to get back to work with only a handful of days left to find his answers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 22, 2022

    The Human Target #6 drops a little clue about Chance's killer and thoroughly decimates any respect or good feelings you might have had for Guy Gardner. The writing is incredibly skillful, even if the character reinterpretations are downright distasteful. In any case, Smallwood's art is beyond reproach and worth the price of admission.

    While the comic dabbles with one of my underlying issues with The Human Target to date (namely that Christopher Chance is shown to always have the upper hand on every superhero he encounters), there's enough....weirdness going on with the narrative that temporarily dissuades those issues for now.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 22, 2022

    It's a good thing the title is going on hiatus until September. Maybe by that point readers will have forgotten the state of the book when it returns. There's little reason to expect King will do anything differently as he seems content to trash this alternate version of the JLI. Read Full Review
