    The Department of Truth #13 is another great issue that reveals a bit more of Tynion's story and raises more fascinating questions. The concept sounds like it would just be a riff on Twin Peaks or The X-Files, there is some serious philosophical depth to this title. Read Full Review

    The Department of Truth #13 continues to prove this series is a modern masterpiece. The fact that its creators turn the entire main narrative upside down is amazing further cementing the fact that this is filled with surprises, truths, and the embodiment of the unnerving nature of the power of ideas.

    There would be a million ways to draw the story closer to the art. Tynion is constructing a really impressive plot, but it's largely just an outline. There are only a couple of moments in the issue that aren't stories delivered entirely in text. It's a real disappointment as the plot IS interesting. It's just too bad, so much of it is cluttering-up dialogue balloons. Read Full Review

    The Department of Truth would be a very good comic if its creative team could keep away from inserting the equivalent of a Wikipedia article into the middle of each and every single article. Read Full Review
