Raven has joined Baron Winters' new Night Force to battle the ancient, mystical assassins known as the Shadow Riders. But she discovers the Riders were created to protect mankind from Arcanes: super-naturally powered individuals who were not always heroes! Can it be true that Raven and the Night Force have been the "bad guys" all along?

    RAVEN: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS #12 ends fairly well; however Marv Wolfman could have added more to the series and to this particular issue. Pop Mhan and Lovern Kindzierski create religious symbolism along with a pop culture reference. Overall, RAVEN: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS #12 was a good read with thought-provoking drawing and color.

    The story wasn't perfect and I'm fine with never seeing Baron Winters again, but I'm ready for more Wolfman Raven any time. Read Full Review

    It was a good series while it lasted. Throughout, we have seen Pop Mhan's artwork develop and mature, though there's still some growing to be done. Back in the 1970s and '80s, there were artists like Don Heck and Alex Saviuk who weren't necessarily fan favorites, but they hit their deadlines. Hardly rock stars, but vital to the craft. Pop Mahn may be such an artist, and that's not a bad thing. Read Full Review

    It's over... and there wasn't a cryptic "to be continued" on the last page, so that ought to nudge my final score up a point.  Raven eeks out a win in an aggressively dull story.  I have no interest in any potential future new-Night Force adventures. Read Full Review

    In the end, Raven Daughter of Darkness is a clumsy, often dull, and mostly poorly executed story that was never quite sure what it really wanted to say. Read Full Review
