Reeling from her previous encounter with Talia al Ghul, The Silencer wants a permanent end to hostilities vis a vis several bullets into al Ghul's face. But first, a family vacation. When another pair of high-powered killers, Cradle and Grave, end up on the same flight out of town, The Silencer has no choice but to take them both out before the plane lands...or risk the underworld discovering that she has a family!

    Abnett continues to push the envelope with this character and the situations that he's putting her in and the inevitable reveal of her hidden life to her family ramps up the tension in the book. Read Full Review

    I was surprised and pleased that Silencer was extended beyond its original six-issue miniseries. There are a lot of great threads that weave the Silencers story and it is a pleasure to see that the writers will now receive the time and issues they need to follow these threads. Silencer has a lot of potentialas a character and a player on the big stage. I want to see how long she can keep up a ruse that she thinks will be over soon, and we know better. Read Full Review

    This issue is so strong because it keeps the contrast between Honor's two lives on display " it's hard to get away from the family life when it's on the same plane, and the assassin life keeps finding her. The best thing this series has going for it is Honor being a unique and compelling character, and I'm hoping this new arc abroad stays as strong as it began. Read Full Review

    This was a fun issue, although it's a shame the story didn't move forward much. I'm still into the characters and the art was just fantastic. I'm so excited to see what Zircher brings to the table when he jumps on next month. Read Full Review

    The turbulence at 30,000 feet isn't coming from the plane. It's Honor protecting her family all in the cargo hold. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Jul 30, 2018

    The story isn't the best, but with good art and dialogue, The Silencer #7 is another good, if slightly underwhelming, issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 29, 2018

    The weakest issue of The Silencer to date, Dan Abnett fails to deliver a story that's engaging, believable, or progresses the overall narrative. When all is said and done, I'm willing to bet that this issue will be skippable, and I wouldn't blame anyone for choosing to move past this pit of mediocrity. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure whether bad scripting or bad art is to blame for this mess of an issue, but Silencer is one of the more poorly thought out comics of 2018. Read Full Review

    So far Silencer's run is consistent, and every issue touches similar themes - there's Silencer's war for freedom, and Honor's personal life simmingly detached from her troubled past. I liked the issue, and t's a definite recommendation for fans of the series - it's more of the same, which in this case is good.

    Of the last several issues of The Silencer, this one has been my favorite so far. It's nearly perfect and has one of the best action set piece I've ever seen in a comic book. This issue highlights the strengths of the character while greatly minimizing the problematic elements. 

    Honor Guest (The Silencer) and her family are traveling to Sansaro. What the family doesn't know is that the real reason for the vacation is that Honor is looking to tie up loose ends and make sure that Talia Al Ghul stays gone for good.

    By happenstance, Honor notices that her cover as Silencer has been blown by two assassins and she has to find a to neutralize them before the plane lands.

    The bulk of the issue takes place in t more

    This is dumb on a number of levels and I anticipate it will continue being so until time dies.
