The Silencer finds herself in a deadly showdown with a pair of killers-Quietus and Gunn-as well as a giant kaiju monster at a Superman theme park! (No refunds given, park-goers.) If she can shoot her way out of that trouble, she'll still have to track down Talia's body before Leviathan can resurrect her. Of course, them being a secret evil criminal organization and all, they'll probably have backup plans inside of contingencies wrapped up in their true motivations. At any rate, someone's getting their soul eaten whether they like it or not!

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Oct 24, 2018

    This issue was better than the previous two because of its return to what makes The Silencer interesting - she's an assassin for hire who wants a normal life. The art, coloring, and panel work does some heaving lifting, grounding immense set pieces, and pulling the narrative in as the story speeds towards a climax. I can hardly wait to see how The Silencer quiets Leviathan and what is in store for this character afterward. Read Full Review

    The Silencer resonates. It's a really precious and wonderful book. It's consistently well written with a cracking good art team. It tells a tight story with interesting and multi-layered characters. It just kicks ass on all fronts. If you're not already reading it, I highly recommend you try it. You will not be disappointed.

    Really, really liked the cover of Talia al Ghul, so I was a bit disappointed when she wasn't in the issue. But The Silencer #10 was still pretty darn good. Hats off to Viktor Bogdanovic, Jonathan Glapion and FCO Plascencia for sculpting a cover that should draw the attention of any fan walking by a comic book rack. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Oct 28, 2018

    Dan Abnett and Patrick Zircher infuse The Silencer #10 with so many subtle moments in this chapter that it would be easy to take them for granted. From the lighter, humorous tone infused in certain panels, to the revelation of a need for an ensemble, to the incredible character moment between Honor and Quietus, this book proves that it still has a lot of stories left in its arsenal, and I can only hope we are treated to a long, entertaining run as Silencer continues to expand in the DC Universe.

    The Silencer #10 is an explosive story that blends action and character development exceptionally well. Although it isnt particularly complex, it is a fun issue that is sure to entertain. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Oct 24, 2018

    I'm genuinely looking forward to the next issue. The ending introduces some wackiness which I'm always down for. The art was fantastic, fun, and vibrant, and the story seems to be getting better. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 24, 2018

    Did you ever want to read a comic that was a cyberpunk take on Freaky Friday crossed with Jurassic Park? Congratulations! The Silencer #10 is the comic you've been waiting for. A completely insane action-packed absurdity of a comic, it's also surprisingly entertaining. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 27, 2018

    The Silencer remains an entertaining enough comic to read, but it has yet to find the magic to make it a must-read comic. It could stand to slow down and smell the roses sometime instead of always rushing forward with its plot. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 24, 2018

    There was something off about this issue. There seemed to be some odd change in tone with the characters and dialogue. It was like Abnett was trying to inject humor into certain moments, but it just didn't play. Read Full Review

    This still isn't a good comic, but it seems to be taking itself a lot less seriously, and that's a very good thing. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton Oct 28, 2018

    I liked the hues of background color that shaded this issue with emotion. But, the actions and story did not match the colors. I know that these are necessary steps to get the characters to a direct confrontation with Talia, and overall they are handled with poise and confident pacing. Maybe after this storyline, Dan Abnett can pull back and reset the momentum Read Full Review

    from a base of 6, this gets a rating of: 8.
    +1 because: I actually like the Talia/Wishbone/Raze team a bit...
    +1 because: even without yet caring for the main character, the story is good

    It kinda sucks reviewing The Silencer because it feels like I'm reading the same issue over and over again. At some point, you have to question why you're reading the series at all. Furthermore, of "The Age of Heroes" titles The Silencer is the only series that has not moved beyond the initial concept. 

    Honor Guest isn't really a reskinned marvel character and that was an advantage for her character initially but now its as if the character is running in place and content in mediocrity. 

    This month we get a continuation of the Vacation in Action Land story-arc. Silencer and Quietus are still stuck in each other's bodies as they make an uneasy alliance to take down a massive Kaiju like monster.

    There so much plot convenience in this story. Things happen how they do because these are the easiest and most cliché to write.
