BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS' runaway bestseller just keeps going! Now that we've seen the origin of our killer, it's only a matter of time before the NYPD realizes they have a vigilante on their streets.
The first issue of this new arc releases the same day as the first KILL OR BE KILLED trade, and is a perfect jumping on point for readers who've missed out so far. And every issue has all the backpage extras that BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS fans have come to expect.

    When you see that a series is being created by Brubaker/Phillips, you don't have to go very out on a limb to predict it will be good. With Kill or Be Killed, however, it might be time to start the discussion about whether or not this is creative team's best work yet. Read Full Review

    I felt like a kid again on Christmas when I sat down to read one of my favorite current ongoing comic book series. The wait was well worth it. I understand how Cleveland felt when LeBron came back to the Cav's. Read Full Review

    This isn't a book you read quickly, but rather one you pore over and read again. If you doubted this premise had legs, issue #5 will set you right. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Jan 18, 2017

    Kill or Be Killed is a series that you should check out. If you like crime dramas, thrillers, and gritty street justice, then this book is for you. You are following the story of a man who is figuring everything out as he goes along, and you feel like you are on the journey with him. He makes mistakes, especially in this issue, and the reader can vicariously live through him. How long can he keep this up? And if he stops, will he truly die like the demon told him? If that last question makes no sense to you, then you should buy the first volume that releases the same day as this issue and catch up. Read Full Review
