The detective has found where the source of this tragedy began. Where Laura learned to shoot, a place where she not only learned to kill but also has killed, and where she brought Rorschach to turn him into an assassin as well. As the timelines crisscross, the man trying to undo this mess only falls deeper into it.

    Rorschach #9 is another brilliant chapter in this astounding series. King has written some damn good stories, and this series is no exception. Hopefully, he can deliver a satisfying conclusion to the story, and I have every confidence in his ability to do so. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill Jun 9, 2021

    I am really into this story and formula that the HBO series Watchmen set up and this comic fills in with the show. The show is set in the future of that universe and does it’s own thing within that world. This comic follows the formula and does its own thing. King has this and Strange Adventures coming out monthly right now and this by far is the superior book in my opinion. While Strange Adventures has been good for sure, this book is just so much better. I would highly recommend picking Rorschach up this week. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 15, 2021

    On the surface, Rorschach #9 isn't as insightful as some of the other issues of this book, but King does a great job of investing it with meeting under the surface. It's extremely effective and subtle. Beyond that, this is just another chapter in a stellar mystery, one that ups the stakes that have been set up wonderfully and change everything. Fornes and Johnson's art makes the whole thing work. Rorschach is an impressive book that keeps trucking along towards a hard to foresee end, but if it's anything like what's come before, it will be great. Read Full Review

    With only three issues left, it's likely we're getting close to some even bigger reveals as this strange, brilliant puzzle box of a comic enters its last act. Right now, it's looking like the Watchmen-verse has a fourth classic chapter in the making. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Jun 8, 2021

    RORSCHACHcontinues to be a fantastic series. The fact that it has the power to do jaw-dropping issues like issue 7 and simple, quiet, slow issues like this one, shows its range. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Jun 8, 2021

    Rorschach #9 is a great chapter that builds on the overall story. Each month I walk away from an issue with a deep story to think about and new clues from the real world that could tie in. I feel like I'm with the detective, and the ride continues to get wilder! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Jun 9, 2021

    With each successive issue Tom King, Jorge Fornes, Dave Stewart and Clayton Cowles continue to entrance readers with their gripping mystery. Though the issue did suffer a few lulls in storytelling, it did help further along the story and helps to justify the books existence. Read Full Review
