Honor Guest had a normal life. A family. A house in the suburbs. She sacrificed that normalcy and agreed to serve Leviathan so that her husband and son could live. But now a new danger threatens her former life: Smoke. Honor's half-sister, a failed Leviathan experiment in bio-engineering. Can the ultimate Leviathan assassin stop a deranged and vengeful version of herself from annihilating everything the Silencer holds dear?

    V Ken Marions art is amazing. All of the action works and there are some intense moments throughout especially when Smoke gets the upper hand with Honors family. Its a tense moment that is rendered beautifully. Read Full Review

    From the beginning of the issue, Marion and Abnett led us to believe Honor would rejoin her family in some capacity. It seemed like she might reveal her other identity, but now it looks as unlikely as ever. As much as she'll likely have to suit up in The Silencer #18, The Silencer #17 felt like the ideal time for her to tell Blake the truth. Hopefully, he presses her on the matter. It feels like that's the only way he's going to get any answers. Read Full Review

    As sad as I am with the demise of Smoke, I am elated that this is a turning point for Honor/Silencer. However, the Leviathan is coming and she could play a big part in either its defeat or reign. But for now, let's enjoy her reunion with Blake and Ben. Read Full Review

    With an absolutely stunning splash page to wrap up the book to boot, fans coming off the high of John Wick: Chapter 3 would absolutely love this month's issue. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of potential in this series and this was one of the better issues, but it always feels about 3/4ths of the way to something great. Read Full Review
