Common tragedies can bind two people together, sometimes in all the wrong ways. The investigation into a famous comic book creator’s relationship with a deranged young girl takes the detective to places he never wanted to go. Witness how a woman raised to fear the squid invasion and distrust facts seeks a man whose creations embody strength, justice, and truth, and compels him to trade his paper heroes for flesh and blood.

    This is less a DC Comic than a Coen-esque suspense thriller, and it's one of the best books on the market today. Read Full Review

    There's so much to say about DC Comics'RORSCHACH #6. It's a script that feels real and true to life. This creative team isn't playing by the rules anymore. They're going to tell a story that might scare us. It's not a story that's full of heroes and villains. It's a story that's dominated by humans. We come to see and even understand where even the most extreme characters are coming from. Read Full Review

    Tom King's Rorschach is quite different from Watchmen, or any other comic I've ever read for that matter. It's a totally engrossing mystery that's unlike anything else I've ever read. And I'm loving every minute of it. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 17, 2021

    Rorshach #6 is yet another triumph of the comic storytelling form. King uses this issue to tell a multi-faceted story about how various types of people deal with the world and ends it all on a nice cliffhanger that will have readers questioning what comes next. Fornes is perfect for King in this story, his expressive pencils bringing the whole thing to laugh. This series is at the halfway point, and there are still so many questions left unanswered, and thats a wonderful thing. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Mar 9, 2021

    All in all, Rorschach #36 is a great issue that asks more questions, sets up some amazing suspense, and shows us more about Wil and Laura. But can we trust what we are being shown? More mystery in this adventure set in the Watchmen World. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Mar 9, 2021

    This is a long read but it's a good long read. It shows us at length the letters that Myerson and Laura wrote to each other and why they connected regardless of their age gap. Myerson at the end of his days, Laura only 19 and spiraling into hopelessness. Although I still struggle to understand why this has to be a Rorschach story, I continue to enjoy this series, and this issue was really well done. I thought it was great. Read Full Review

    This remains a nice to look at, but overall very dull comic. Read Full Review
