    This issue gives readers a rather satisfying conclusion to this arc. Within this particular issue we find that the character is not the sole offspring of Trigon, but one of many, and the depth of his lurid evil is more than what readers have come to expect or even comprehend. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Andrew Huard Aug 14, 2018

    With six issues under their belt, the creative team of Wolfman, Mahn and Kindzierski have been able to keep things fresh by introducing new ideas for the next six issues. Hopefully with the possible introduction of Baron Winters Night Force, new and exciting characters can be introduced and help build on the excitement they have created in the first half of this mini series. In the last few panels of the issue, they make sure to remind the reader that The Shadow Riders are still out there and pose a very serious threat to the magical community. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 3, 2018

    That doesn't take away from the strength of Raven: Daughter of Darkness. Writer Marv Wolfman gives the character some range, making her more than just a moody goth princess. This first half of the maxi-series has her grappling with family, both normal and supernatural, and where she stands in her bizarre family tree. She's not required to follow in the footsteps of her ancestors from either side of the family. Instead, she's blazing her own path and becoming a better person because of it. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 29, 2018

    Raven's title has done a good job of humanizing her instead of making her a stock "Dark creepy girl" character, and although the plotting may be a little jumbled, I'm glad Wolfman gets to continue fleshing out one of his most famous creations. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jun 27, 2018

    Overall, this issue has its moments, but both exposition and cartoonish, ill-fitting story tones make this one of the lesser compelling issues of an otherwise great series. Going from here, we turn to the Shadow Riders, who have promise for bringing us back to the shadow-enshrouded mysteries that we expect from Raven. Expect the series to recover, and find its way back to its roots. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Quinn Morris Jul 2, 2018

    Does Wolfman know that miniseries are supposed to be one contained narrative? Because he seems to be trying to write an ongoing that's been pre-cancelled. Read Full Review

    We hit the midpoint of the 12-issue Raven: Daughter of Darkness series this week and, in many ways, it feels like we're starting a whole new book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jun 27, 2018

    After six issues, I can't say I am particularly impressed by the artwork of Pop Mhan. It seems overly simplistic in this modern era of comic book illustration. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure what I just read... but I know I didn't much care for it.  I think there was an "ending" here... hidden, deep within the issue... so, yay for that?  Pop Mhan's art continues to impress... and does much of the heavy-lifting. Read Full Review
