    Sword Of Azrael #6 ties the neatest, blood-red ribbon to one of the best limited-series of the last couple of years. Yes, this is superhero fiction, but it's also a character-driven tale about hope and redemption. I honestly hope that Dan Watters and his collaborators get another shot at these characters because I would pick up Azrael and the Avenging Angels every month if they got their own book.

    It has been a pleasure covering this book and I hope Dan Watters continues Azrael's story soon. I will also be checking out anything that Nikola Cizmesija works on in the future. He's a brilliant artist. If you haven't been reading this comic, I strongly recommend picking up the trade when it's released. Especially if you're an Azrael fan, this is a must-read!

    Overall, this series did a good job of expanding the mythology of Azrael, but there was so much going on that it often felt like he was playing second-fiddle. Read Full Review

    Watters and his collaborators have performed impressive work in Sword of Azrael and related stories to differentiate and clarify Jean-Paul's story from the Batman story he's best known for; they make a stirring case for exploring this unexpectedly splendid blend of Catholicism, New Gods, and Batman lore.

    This was a really good miniseries. I don't typically *get* Azrael as a character. He's always seemed like a bad idea to me. But Watters is a very capable writer who doesn't get nearly enough props as he deserves. And being that he's capable, he managed to make both the character and his world interesting.

    P.S. Pay no attention to RedKryptoSuperman. All he does is goon out with others who pretend to be female characters, so they can both get off together. Don't believe me, check out his twitter. He's too backed up to have anything else on is mind, or to even approach cognizance.

    That's it? That's the ending? Talk about a big nothing. This entire series was one big pile of garbage that did nothing more than waste 6 months. This was hardly a story. It tried to be deep but only managed to muddle through a 1/2 baked concept to tell the origins of the Order of Saint Dumas in the most absurd explanation possible. This series is a disgrace that shouldn't be considered cannon for the character of Azrael. To call this series bad would be overly kind to this series. The art, the story, the pacing of the story, there is nothing good about this series. Do yourself a favour and buy the back issues of Azrael Vol 1 issues 1-100. The very worst story in that series is light years ahead of this series.
