The angel Zauriel is dead. And that leaves the Stranger without his guardian angel just in time for the arrival of The Fallen!

    DeMatteis paced this issue very well and he has begun the resolutions to several ongoing arcs, so this issue is definitely among the best he has written, especially with the ending, and the artwork is definitely among the top-tier that this title has seen to date. Read Full Review

    Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger #21 really has brought back what the series was well-known for. If DC does continue the series, I can see so much potential on writing a story based around the fallen angels. Maybe more as the next issue we see the Phantom Stranger facing against God.

    I'm getting really sad that Phantom Stranger's solo title is on the way out, because man did I ever fall in love with this character.  I blame DeMatteis, but I guess I've been a good boy this year because that master of spooky is taking on the Trinity of Sin book in October, and I couldn't be happier about that.  But getting back to this book, it features heavily on getting Zauriel a new status-quo in the New 52, hopefully to give him a place to go after this book is finished, and it's a real touching story that creates a whole new dynamic for this relatively one dimensional character.  You should check it out and let DeMatteis touch you the way he's touched me, don't worry you'll like it.

    Although the New 52 take on the Phantom Stranger isn't as mysterious as some of the best takes on the character, strong writing and artwork make the series one of the stronger entries among D.C.'s supernatural-themed comics. Read Full Review

    Great issue overall. DeMatteis starts wrapping up the title real nicely, setting up the great finale between the Phantom Stranger and what's supposed to be God, the beloved scottish terrier. I had a mild issue with the introduction of the other angels, since it was quite sudden, but it didn't bothered me that much. The art is great, loved the design on the Cursed angels.
