    DC is going balls deep in its Peacemaker character development at the moment with the TV Show and this new Black Series comic. Smith skillfully dodges Sedwick's concerns of the constant violence on his psyche and with professionals like Ennis and Brown, the chilling final page suddenly adds even more depth to the growing character.

    As for the art, Brown is a great fit. This character isn't a hero, and this is very much a dark story. You need an artist whose style reflects both of those qualities " enter Brown. And Lee Loughridge's colors help readers comfortably make the jump between Peacemaker's ridiculous past and the cold conversation taking place in the present. Read Full Review

    Furthermore, this isn't your Jon Cena PEACEMAKER. Ennis' version isn't goofy or weird. Sure, he's awkward, direct, and silent. But to those looking for something humorous or fun from the character, that's not in this week's PEACEMAKER: DISTURBING THE PEACE #1 nor does it fit Ennis' style. However, there isn't a better pick for a writer to legitimize PEACEMAKER and separate him from the own screen, goofy Cena version than Garth Ennis. Read Full Review

    Those coming into Peacemaker: Disturbing The Peace #1 expecting the same hijinks-filled hilarity of the HBO Max series will be sorely disappointed. That being said, there is the start of an interesting story here and the artwork matches that story, beat for beat. Readers should come in with an open mind and not expect the Garth Ennis of The Boys and The Pro. Read Full Review

    The result is an impressive one-shot that applies elements of horror and action to create one of the most twisted reintroductions of a DC Comics character in many years and, despite the terror and ugliness on the page, it's hard to resist wanting more Peacemaker for the first time in the character's comics history.

    Peacemaker - Disturbing the Peace #1 is a one-shot seemingly aimed at synergy with the buzzy HBO Max TV show, but readers might be in for some tonal whiplash, even if the thematic hearts of the two share quite a bit in common. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 25, 2022

    Peacemaker: Disturbing The Peace #1offers a new origin for Christopher Smith, though its stellar artwork can't make up for the lack of originality or the fact that Gath Ennis is scraping his bag of tricks. Those looking for Peacemaker comics to read after watchingThe Suicide Squad and/or Peacemaker would be better off reading the currentSuicide Squad series. Read Full Review
