Michael learns the truth about John Constantine's plans to provide the world free energy, and his sinister plot will shake Michael to his core and potentially plunge the world into a new age of darkness. Killing Constantine and his allies might save the world, but doing so could trap the alien entity growing in Michael's brain forever.

    That last page is also an amazingly well drawn splash page. Harris nails the page perfectly as well as the entire art duties of the book. I'm at the edge of my seat. The next issue can't come fast enough. Read Full Review

    It's one of DC's best sleeper hits at the moment, and I can't wait to see how Cray is going to take down these villains. Read Full Review

    Yet again Bryan Hill over delivers with a fantastic issue. Patchy artwork by N. Steven Harris is cleaned up by Ross Campbells colours making for an entertaining story that further develops the series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Jul 11, 2018

    A somewhat talky issue that is more concerned with setting up the series' finale than anything else, this nevertheless manages to intrigue and entertain and that's in no small part due to Hill's skill with characterization and dialogue. While Cray's team remains somewhat anemic (Victoria continues to shine, mind you), Hill's Constantine is charming, brave and psychotic in more or less equal measure. The title character's journey between the Scylla of Diana Prince's mad plan to destroy half the world and the Charybdis of his own talking tumor-induced torment is also compelling stuff. The art continues to be somewhat underwhelming, but this is still a comic book that's worth your time. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Jul 11, 2018

    As an individual issue, Michael Cray #9 is a perfectly serviceable story, using good meat-and-potatoes storytelling to put its characters in place for the final three issues of the series. As a part of the larger whole, its a refreshing change of pace from the established formula of the series, with a strong cliffhanger ending. Its still unclear why this story needed to be told outside of the main (and markedly superior) The Wild Storm series, or how the two series fit together, but this issues shifts promise a satisfying ending to Michael Crays adventures in this new continuity.

    The supporting characters continue to be more interesting than the titular hero. Read Full Review
