After the horrific acts of last issue, the highly unstable team of Etrigan, Jason Blood and Xanadu must face a new threat. A new player that has been ally, enemy and family to Jason and Etrigan reveals itself, and explains just who is responsible for the nightmarish transformation facing Earth. But before the shock of this information can be absorbed, the group must face a different family member. And he's got an offer that Etrigan can't refuse. Alliances will be made, familial bonds will be broken, and blood will be spilled!

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Feb 4, 2018

    The Demon: Hell is Earth greatly expands with this issue, as it pulls back the curtain for some nice reveals. It's clearly building up to something even bigger. I cannot imagine what the next battle will look like. There is going to be so much blood and fire spewing every which way. Etrigan is pissed and he's going to take out his anger on all the forces of Hell. I'm not sure which side is favored to win in this one. Read Full Review

    Theres only so much depth Constant can provide in a six-issue mini-series, but this issue proves theres enough spark here to merit future shorter installments or a monthly series. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 28, 2018

    The Demon: Hell is Earth #3 does kill the pacing a little bit courtesy of exposition wizard, but its still an overall fun experience. Etrigans personality has a way of salvaging even the slower moments, and the bloody finale is quite enjoyable. Mix that with some solid artwork, and you have a pretty damn good comic. This one gets another recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 30, 2018

    With a lot of background material brought into focus with Merlin, The Demon gives us a bit more of the foundation we need to move forward with. Merlin takes center stage here and reminds me why I generally don't care for him and it's unfortunate as it pushes others like Jason into the background. Even Etrigan is more supporting for the first half of the book. Once it gets moving and some action comes into focus it picks up a bit more, especially since it's just so beautifully illustrated, as the impact and power of it all works well with more of hell's machinations and regions explored visually. It's a solid installment and one that I think will work better when read as a single series than a single installment, but it does what it needs to and sets us up for what's to come.

    Comic Watch - Eric Brown Feb 1, 2018

    The Demon: Hell is Earth continues to deliver a fun and fresh take on a character which has had a little bit of an identity crisis in his history. This miniseries delivers on the aspects of the earlier runs of the Demon that I liked, but also gives me things I always wanted from the character but never saw. One hell of a fun read.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 24, 2018

    This issue explains a lot of what's been going on, as well as introducing the Big Bad of the series, and it looks spectacular. On reflection, however, it isn't story progression as much as it is a big infodump. Well, that's better than not knowing what's going on, I suppose. Read Full Review

    Of all of the recent DC magic books relaunched, this lacks the compelling plot of Mystik U, but its fast-paced story and strong art make it somewhat enjoyable. Read Full Review
