    This is a fantastic comic and my few complaints are nitpicks to the extreme. Whether you care about Azrael or not, I can only give this a strong recommendation! Read Full Review

    This was a strong one shot one that raises the question of a follow-up. Thankfully theres not a long wait as the next installment also got released this week. Read Full Review

    Azrael fans, rejoice! Sword Of Azrael: Dark Knight Of The Soul is one of TWO comics out this week, starring the Angel of Vengeance. As such, look out for my review of Sword Of Azrael #1, on this very site. I recommend picking up this one-shot if you're new to Azrael, and maybe you'll be tempted to grab issue #1 of his new mini-series, too. Either way, this is a comic that's a little bit different from the rest, and that's worth something in itself. Read Full Review

    Coupled with kinetic work from Nikola Cizmesija, this over-size one-shot is a stellar launching platform for an incredibly deep and rich story. Read Full Review
