    This issue gives readers a rather fun, dark, morose and complicated story in this ninth chapter. The story by Wolfman throws in a few twists that no one saw coming. The art by Mhan feels like a 1970s comic in the best way possible. Altogether, this issue changes the game for all the characters involved, and I can't wait to see where it goes next.

    RAVEN: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS #9 does well in adding a new layer into the story, giving readers another reason to be enticed. Collaboration between the artist and colorists creates a spread that shines above all the other pieces in the series thus far. Read Full Review

    This series started a bit slow, taking way too long to kick off Winters' plot, but now that it's going strong it's the best use of Raven's character in years. Read Full Review

    Only three issues remain in the 12-issue limited run. If the series becomes an ongoing, there is a great deal of opportunity, if DC can cultivate it properly. Some of the characters have yet to impress me, but they've barely been introduced, so there's still time for them to develop, if not here, perhaps elsewhere. Read Full Review

    Believe it or not, we get some story progression... even if it isn't all that interesting.  There is a brief nod to Raven's private life to remind us that this is her book.  Art remains strong. Read Full Review

    The same issues that have plagued Raven Daughter of Darkness for its entire run continue in #9. It is bogged down with exposition and the continued "mystery" of whether Baron Winters is on the up and up while Raven is tangled up in uneven portrayal -- the issue is overwhelmingly lackluster and unnecessarily tedious.
