From the Eisner Award-winning creators of POWERS! Murder, Inc. has gone to war with the United States-and the United States has lost! The president is dead, the vice president has quit, there's chaos in the streets, fighting in Congress, farms are burning...but thank God our boy Valentine has a plan. It's an alternative look at our world that shows us what the world would be like if it were run by gangsters, where the five families of organized crime have taken over!

    There is one last dark twist too. It's excellent. This whole book was completely fantastic . Bendis and Oeming really pull it off. There is a setup for another series at the end. I'm completely in. This was so good that I am counting the days until the next one starts up. Read Full Review

    Mass murder and a tragic backstory befall UNITED STATES VS MURDER INC. #6 thanks to writer Brian Michael Bendis. Bendis writes from a rebellious young woman's perspective well with a bloody outcome. Michael Avon Oeming's art is the best it's been. His illustrations successfully tell the story in conjunction with Bendis's writing. Overall, UNITED STATES VS MURDER INC. #6 ends on a strong note. Read Full Review

    This issue hypes a follow-up and I can't imagine a better issue to get you excited for it than this one. The beauty of this issue is how the brutality isn't obvious but creeps up on you like a cold crowbar in the night. Make no mistake, Bendis and Oeming have crafted an American crime drama that's truly haunting. Read Full Review

    This series is in its infancy and there is still time to get caught up and get on the Murder Inc train! In this world of "binge watching", a new reader seriously needs to check out this series as it is dark and gritty! Cheers to Bendis for creating an alternate universe for these characters to play in!

    While the tale (and its aftermath) makes for a fitting end to this miniseries, this issue illustrates both the strengths and weaknesses of Bendis and Oeming's series as a whole. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Feb 6, 2019

    As usual,the artwork is Michael Avon Oemings over-stylized cartoony artwork. I wontdisparage his storytelling abilities, but I find his rendering style akin tohigh school notebook doodles. I would expect a writer of Brian Michael Bendisstature to have his pick of collaborators. I would hate to think he actuallychose Oeming as his illustrator. Read Full Review
