    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio Jul 19, 2019

    I have to say I'm sorry to see Assassin Nation come to an end. It's been a thoroughly entertaining romp filled with mayhem, murder, silliness, sensitivity, language as colorful as the panels themselves (there was a character named 'Fuck', FFS), and beautifully executed gags. My favorite little extra this time around came while Rankin had Bishop pinned down and was monologuing like a champ. As he says "I just wanted to be the number one killer again" with his gun held reverently to his chest, the background is a giant banner saying "Pettiest Man On Earth" surrounded by flowers and held by a pair of rosy-cheeked cherubs. Overall I truly enjoyed this book, and if it comes back for a second arc I'll definitely be reading! Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jul 15, 2019

    At the end of the day, if youre a fan of either creators previous work, you really owe it to yourself to pick this series up. Blending John Woo-esque balletic violence with crass humour and action movie excess, Assassin Nation ticks a hell of a lot of boxes, and does so with style. Read Full Review
