Honor Guest was the greatest assassin you've never heard of-but now the secret is out. In the month since Smoke's devastating attack, the Silencer is on the lam from Leviathan and trying to piece her family life back together, and this is a challenge unlike any Honor has faced before. Will Honor's past continue to plague her, or has she at last earned a peaceful respite from her life of murder and mayhem?

    V Ken Marion not only makes all of the characters look amazing, but the backgrounds and action are filled with beautiful details that are visually stunning. Read Full Review

    Even if she doesn't pop up there, DC needs to find a way to keep her in the mix. Honor Guest is too cool of a character to be benched. Read Full Review

    The Silencer (2018-) #18 is the final issue in the series, and delivers a good ending for the character, with some great art. Read Full Review

    I wish Silencer could have stuck around longer. DC really did make a good faith effort in trying to help the book with guest appearances on Nightwing and the Arrow slot. Hopefully this isn't the last we'll see of the character and The Silencer isn't silenced for good. Read Full Review

    An 18 issue run is not bad, and any collector that wants to get in on this comic should gobble up this issue as well as issues 1-17. Silencer needs to return, and it is always great to see when and where a new character is introduced. Here's hoping DC keeps trying to expand its universe! The New Age fell victim on a lot of fronts to reader apathy and sales, but Silencer is a keeper who deserves a sequel. Until then".. reread your issues! Read Full Review

    This is probably the best example of the series living up to its potential, so it's a shame it comes right at the end. Read Full Review

    This final issue ties up most of the loose ends that kept Honor Guest The Silencer. Interestingly, she takes all of her ammo and gear with her to Ohio " her family's new home. Maybe there will be room in the DC universe for a deadly female assassin and a great mother in future stories. Read Full Review

    A little bit slight, but it's well-drawn and wraps things up nicely for a character who didn't get much of a chance to make an impression. Read Full Review

    While it ends on a feel-good high note, the rest of the issue feels like the same few panels repeating over the majority of 23 pages. Read Full Review

    It's sad to see what happened to the New age of Heroes. One by one, book by book, each title was cancelled, and now DC just ended Silencer. Shame, because alongside The Terrifics, her comics were the highlights of this (otherwise failed) experiment.
    There go my hopes of seeing the character on the big screen and becoming more recognizable in the mainstream. She sure deserves that.

    This issue doesn't feature action - it's focused on closing every plot line, saying goodbye to side characters, and allowing Honor to live the life she always wanted. It's nothing special, but it's hard for me to imagine a more suitable ending to the series - after all, it does what it has to, to close the story but at the same time leave some room more

    A solid ending and I am happy it tied into the current ongoings of Leviathan, it wraps a nice little bow around it.

    This wasn't the worst. I never really liked this series and I'm not sad to see it go, but this issue was okay.
