    Even with the talent involved, I wasn't expecting to like this series as much as I do. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Victoria Prisco Mar 28, 2018

    SILENCER #3 is filled with epic fights and violence. The explosive artwork by John Romita Jr. perfectly captures the chaos of the battlefield and the ferocity of the Silencer as an assassin. With an action-packed story by Dan Abnett, Honor Guest is a force to be reckoned with. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 28, 2018

    This book was already shaping up to be something special and then Abnett and Romita crank up the intensity to 15 with another familiar DC face joining the mix for next issue. If you're not reading this book, you're missing one of DC's next big hits. Read Full Review

    The Silencer is shaping up to be a stand out among “The New Age of DC Heroes” and this issue is another example of that. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Mar 28, 2018

    I'm still not loving the artwork however. Especially Honor's suit. It still looks like a puffy winter coat to me; not armor capable of protecting her from multiple gunshots (though as we learned there is a limit to its protection). Talia looked a lot better in the issue; mostly because of the extreme lighting they put her in for her panels. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Mar 28, 2018

    The book was a blast this month, the art was bombastic and a ton of fun. Dean White’s colors continue to bring the art to life. The plot didn’t move too far here but as John Romita Jr’s last issue, the focus needed to be on action and he got to go out in style. Finally, that ending has me real excited for the next arc where The Silencer makes her presence in the DC Universe known. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Mar 28, 2018

    Previously in The Silencer, it was established that Honor Guest was a deadly assassin, trained by the League of Assassins. Having escaped this world, she is living a quiet family life, with a husband and child, in suburban America. Talia Al Gul interrupts Honor's peaceful retirement and forces her back to the playing field to help her. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brian A. Madrid Apr 2, 2018

    Growing up in the era of Jaws, Star Wars, Superman: The Movie, and Rambo I have seen a lot of action films. The Silencer gives that classic action movie feel like a surprising bonus, a woman is the main character. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Russ Burlingame Mar 28, 2018

    John Romita, Jr.'s name is on the top of the book, and it's for good reason: the success of Silencer hinges almost exclusively on his huge, dynamic visuals (along with the rock-solid inks of Sandra Hope), his command of visual storytelling, and a frantic pace that is expressed through his widescreen, emotive artwork.

    On Comics Ground - Christina Williams Apr 1, 2018

    Honor Guest is forced to attack the current Remedy and his men in order to truly show them that she wants nothing to do with the offer they are giving her. However, this may prove to be the wrong decision. Can Honor Guest really survive the world she escaped from long enough to get her peaceful life back? Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 28, 2018

    It is about time The Silencer gets on with it and begins to tell a more coherent story. Hopefully, the reason for all this mayhem will be revealed. They keep telling us how badass she used to be, so maybe we will finally see it. We've been waiting long enough. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Hussein Wasiti Mar 28, 2018

    This series is goingstrong and it's made even better knowing that Viktor Bogdanovic will behandling the art starting with the next issue! This book is going to lookabsolutely gorgeous. This art here, however, isn't terrible although it can becluttered at times. The story is interesting and the ending should get anyoneexcited for the next story. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 28, 2018

    The Silencer #3, the conclusion of the first arc of The Silencer series, is basically no-holds-barred action brought to life by John Romita Jr., and if you're a fan of Kick-Ass, this series will probably work for you. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Robert Reed Mar 28, 2018

    Action packed, with beautiful artwork by John Romita Jr., The Silencer #3 is a compact end to the book, even if the last pages don't quite match the rest. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 28, 2018

    Abnett and Romita's third chapter isn't a bad one, but it is a step down in quality that will doubt leave many readers unfulfilled. Will this dip serve as a swan song for The Silencer? No, but if it doesn't return to its standard quality, then that inconsistency of quality storytelling will. Read Full Review
