    The Human Target hits the mark yet again. Tom King, Greg Smallwood and Clayton Cowles are creating the best noir mystery with Christopher Chance since the Milligan/Pulido run. The writing is absolutely excellent, the art is amazing and the letters are just the chefs kiss right on top and I cant wait for more! Read Full Review

    While the cool and collected facade has been shown off all mini-series, it was great to see Chance lose his unflappability at the hint of Batman. Best issue of the series to date. Read Full Review

    But we don't get Batman. What wo do get, aside from the paranoia, is the truth of Ice finally learning of Chance's condition and his limited amount of time left on Earth. Read Full Review

    How often should you look over your shoulder when you're a master of disguise? That number will increase when the Dark Knight Detective is hunting you. Or maybe it's the guilt? Tom King and Greg Smallwood bring their best example of suspense to put the Human Target through the wringer. Read Full Review

    The Human Target #9 appears to be waiting. Chance is waiting to die, and this series isn't doing much else besides waiting along with him. In fairness, the character moments are strong, and Smallwood's art is next level, but unless King comes up with a bait-and-switch revelation, this series has turned into a very lovely waiting room.

    Human Target maintains its methodical, uneventful pace that largely calls for readers to get invested in two mostly unlikable characters crafted with gorgeous art. Read Full Review
