    SILENCER #12 is a fantastic issue. If you love action and excitement, this is an issue for you. Jack Herbert's visuals are ripped straight out of an action film. The conflict between Silencer and Talia Al Ghul comes to a roaring boil in SILENCER #12. Read Full Review

    By and large, DC's New Age of Heroes hasn't been a can't miss initiative. Only a few series have yet to meet the chopping block, The Silencer being one. If DC only keeps one series, it has to be The Silencer"especially after what happened in The Silencer #12. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Jan 2, 2019

    The Silencer #12 sees the end of the Leviathan civil war, and the close of the series second story arc. Good writing and characters, and some of the best art the series has seen. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Jan 3, 2019

    After a dozen issues, it is not too late to add the Silencer to your constant readership. It is an official part of the Batman saga via Talia Al Ghul and the Silencer's skill set seems to be developing more and more! It's a keeper for a new title and turning the corner for the new year should provide more twists and turns…..provided the cliff hanger ending gets resolved! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Jan 2, 2019

    This issue really worked for me. Not much happens here but the storytelling is strong and the plot is intriguing me the more I think about it. The art was incredible and kind of has to be seen to be believed, and I think this is still the New Age book to look out for. Read Full Review

    The first year of The Silencer wraps up with an issue that delivers a big bang, but also sums up a lot of the series' weak points. Read Full Review

    Honor walks on a very narrow edge, trying to be a wife, as well as an assassin. We've seen how difficult and dangerous that life can be, and that always was the driving force of this comic. This time, we see more than usual - for once we witness Talia al Ghul's true nature, which so far was being hidden from us. It's cruel, it's evil, it's manipulative and merciless, and gives her what it takes to be a convincing, terrifying cold blooded villain.
    The issue is heavy, and may as well be the most serious one in the series we've seen. And we've seen a lot, let me tell you.

    Hats off, Dan Abnett, you truly have created one of the best antiheroines we've seen in years, who ex-aequo with Deathstroke tells some of the best assassin-c more

    There was so many ways this could go, but it went for the most predictable way.
