The Silencer better get a snowplow guy on the horn quick, or she'll "Die Another Snow Day" in part one of this new epic!
The first year of the series builds to this, so expect all the loose ends to get tied up. As the Leviathan War approaches its fateful conclusion, Talia's true goal stands revealed-and it means bad news for everyone in THIS Multiverse. And when a blizzard cripples South Carolina, Talia takes advantage of the snow job to put her plans into place. Can Silencer put this scheme on ice, or will she get a fatal dose of frostbite instead?

    Herbert brings some great visual moments with the art in this issue. There are some well detailed character shots in this book as well as a stunning sequence with Talia towards the end of the book. Great art throughout. Read Full Review

    And now everyone is back in line with Talia. That is, everyone other than The Silencer, of course. As much as she has Raze, who met this issue and specializes in invisibility, she's shown time and again that she wants Honor Guest back in the fray. Given she's in a room filled with assassins and criminals, something tells me Honor will have to play along for at least a little while longer. Hopefully, she doesn't keep her husband waiting too long since he and their son think she's dead and all. Read Full Review

    The Silencer has dug its way out of the rut it was in a few issues back by returning to the core narrative that started this wonderful character. The Silencer is in her element when she faces insurmountable odds, in a cloak of secrecy, with only her fighting skills to inflict her will. Read Full Review

    As The Silencer, a giant purple hellhound and the cyborg head of a fellow Leviathan boss (yup) make their way to stop their former mistress' inevitable resurrection, you're in for a properly entertaining, Marvellous, 2000AD-inspired ride, that draws on threads from all across supercomicverse to give us something genuinely worthy of a New Age of Heroes. It's the DC comic you never knew you needed, but absolutely do. Read Full Review

    We're getting some major plot advancement, and it's great to see Honor in her element again " if the cliffhanger is any indication, she's got a lot of fighting to do next issue. Read Full Review

    This confrontation is what the readers have been wanting and next issue should provide the reward. Excellent cliffhanger and more importantly, wonderful artwork! If you haven't checked out the Silencer, now is the time to get on board as worlds are colliding in the Batman universe! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Nov 30, 2018

    This issue was an outstanding read, and takes a lot of steps to change the direction of the title's future! The progression feels natural and defeating at the same time, and has me eager to see what Dan Abnett has in store for us. Jack Herbert's entry in art duties couldn't have come at a better time either! With change comes more change, and it's all good! Read Full Review

    As the series begins to head towards it's end, an unsurprising twist leads into a potentially lackluster finish. Read Full Review

    I have to admit, it's a bit impressive to find the most mundane part of a Grant Morrison and then craft an extended storyline around it, but that's just what The Silencer has done. Read Full Review

    Honestly this issue was just bland and I don’t care about this stupid organization or this stupid character or her stupid family.

    GTMedia Reviews Jul 5, 2019

    Of the 4 New Age of Heroes titles that I review regularly, The Silencer tends to be one of the weaker series. Aside from some really high spots the series gets grounded by a few basic problems outside of its control.

    we'll touch on some in this review, but we get a reprieve from my normal complaints regarding the series this time around.

    The book is worth reading primarily because of the value proposition in relation to other series. At the time of publishing, Silencer was still 2.99. For the price, it's better than most of the books that DC or Marvel is producing right now. I know that the last issue of the series came out last week and the cover price eventually jumped to 3.99. I figured I would keep reviewing the more

    Not a great issue the final part revealing a "plan" doesn't make sense and feels like a old
    marvel comic twist.
    Cover-Good
    Characters-Meh some feel wasted potential
    Story- I wished it was better but it's a little better than most of the sideways comics

    I feel like Talia's plan doesn't make any sense. The same people who've wanted to kill her and usurp her power are still part of Leviathan. This whole fake war she set up didn't change much of anything. It didn't prove that Leviathan needs her either. Of course, she's a convenient way to stop the power vacuum, but another figurehead could take her place if they wanted. There's no change here besides a few members were killed. Otherwise, the issue was readable. Even fun at some points. But that ending... It's supposed to be a big moment, but it only works if it feels like the character outsmarted everyone and I don't think she did, even if the comic wants us to think that.
