    All-Comic - Matthew Strackbein Oct 13, 2016

    Kill or be Killed is a must read for fans of Brubaker and Phillips, but anyone looking for standout comics should also take note. This book, like so many of their other and aforementioned titles, reflects the best parts of classic pulps, paperback crime novels, and noir films combined with hefty doses of originality in plot and storytelling. If you can make your way through the content and a dark tale of violence and wrong doing, then youre sure to discover everything else that makes this book so worthwhile; that is all due to Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Their appreciation for the genre drives their efforts and we cant wait to see what they come up with next much less what happens in issue #4, which will concludethis first arc. Kill or be Killed is a must read. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Oct 12, 2016

    I think this series begs to ask the question, is this what a real life vigilante would look like? Most people love seeing The Punisher take down a gang of bad guys. Is Dylan so different? He doesn't look as cool, or have the skull shirt, but does that matter? Is it okay to justify killing someone simply because they are bad? How would you be so certain that they are? I cannot wait to find out what Dylan discovers as he goes through these questions in his own head, and we get a front row seat. Read Full Review

    As usual, Phillips' gorgeous artwork also helps carry the narrative load. Brubaker's script is strong on its own, but the expressions and body language that Phillips imbues the characters with greatly adds to it. You can tell the years these two have spent creating comics together has them fully in sync with each other. Read Full Review

    Look, I know that a lot of people won't be readingKill or be Killed monthly because of how much better Brubaker's work tends to read once it's collected. And that's fine, I get that.

But regardless of how you end up reading it, I think it's important that you do. Read Full Review

    Phillips offers his usual quality work, highlighted by Dylan's mind-bending journey through Times Square. Coney Island has never looked more desolate than it does here, the wintry cold settling in just as things begin to heat up. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Oct 21, 2016

    These questions permeate in the background throughout has Dylan is constantly checking for updates on the story. What makes this issue most intriguing is Dylans reaction as his memories become reaffirmed. We begin to see the evaporation of guilt, and in its place came the sense of satisfaction. It appears Dylan is beginning to go past the point of accepting his satanic burden and moving towards cherishing it, which makes the future of this comic all the more exciting. Read Full Review
