Who would have benefited from the assassination of a presidential candidate? Rorschach and Laura didn’t operate in a vacuum. Their actions touched a lot of different people. In his continued efforts to unravel how the pair got from their stark beginnings to almost killing Governor Turley and derailing an election, the detective on the case starts to look at what other law enforcement agencies have uncovered, and any potential links back to the Oval Office. To do that, it’s time to relive the crime that almost was.

Things are heating up as this miniseries set in the Watchmen universe nears its conclusion!

    Above all, this series is about one thing"paranoia. The villains were driven to commit an act of attempted murder by paranoia, both about the world at large and about imagined threats. And now, as the Detective reveals his cards, he's forced to wonder"how far will people go to keep the truth from coming out? Two issues to go, I have no idea what will happen, but this is brilliant work. Read Full Review

    With Rorschach #10, King's story is zeroing in on the endgame. This series is a fascinating and refreshing departure from regular superhero books. And I'm having fun trying to figure out how the story will end. I recommend to anyone not following this story to get with the program. This is some great stuff. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 14, 2021

    Rorschach #10 is yet another outstanding issue. King knows how to keep the mystery compelling, revealing more and more layers to the whole thing. This chapter is entirely enthralling. Thats probably the best word to describe it. Fornes keeps killing it on pencils. Every month, Rorschach just keeps delivering. Read Full Review

    Writer Tom King is on information sharing mode this issue. Theres no plot equivalent to twiddling his thumbs here. Rorschach is reaching its conclusion and King is able to wind the series down without any more filler. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Jul 13, 2021

    DC Comics' RORSCHACH has so many pieces to it that shouldn't work.RORSCHACH #10 is a text-heavy script with very little action and a huge amount of exposition. But this team makes you feel glued to every page. Every line feels like a revelation. This creative team is throwing out the rulebook, and kicking ass with their own new status quo. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Jul 13, 2021

    While this is a slower, tamer issue, Rorschach #10 is nonetheless a good addition to the series with new developments that tease the reader and makes that monthly wait even harder. Knowing what you know now, it might be a good time to go back and check facts. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Sep 14, 2021

    Rorschach has had its ups and downs, but ultimately doesnt justify its existence like all other adaptations, sequels or spin-offs of Watchmen. Tom King is a great writer, Jorge Forns is an amazing artist, Dave Stewart is a fantastic colorist and Clayton Cowles is a stellar letterer. The team for this book is phenomenal and they did a good job with us until it fizzled out at the end. Ultimately this series is worth a read, but maybe only just the one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Jul 14, 2021

    This is mostly filler, and way too wordy for a filler. It's a waste of time with only a few bullet points. As much as I was surprised how much I was liking this series for most of its run, it looks like Tom King is going to leave us with his usual habit of none of it going nowhere and having a disappointing ending. I doubt he even remembers the thing about Kovacs' DNA or most of the things he put out there and never revisited. I'm glad this is almost over. Read Full Review

    The meta-narrative surrounding the comic and its liberal use of creators as fictional characters is as interesting as the story itself, and that's not necessarily a good thing. Read Full Review
