    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 7, 2019

    Overall, Death-Defying Devil #1 was an exciting start to a story centering a pulp hero that you don't see nearly enough of. This creative team was perfect for this book because they brought the story into a modern setting, and vigilante work takes on a whole different meaning when you're not dealing with the old school criminal underground.

But, at the moment, it's a solid if familiarly structured issue that's getting all the standard foundational elements in place for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Whilst flawed, The Death-Defying Devil #1 is a great introduction to the series, with great writing by Gail Simone and pretty decent art from Walter Geovani. Read Full Review

    A fun reinterpretation of a golden age property, "The Death-Defying Devil" is hampered by its art but still feels promising. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 7, 2019

    I am a tad confused by this book; Simone's recent run on both DC, with Plastic Man and Marvel with Domino far exceeds the writing in this book. Unfortunately, in an odd slice of "life imitating art", as alluded by the mysterious cloaked character, could Simone actually be "slumming it"? Read Full Review

    In some ways, this issue feels like a bit of a throwback, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Read Full Review
