    The Department of Truth is not quite like anything I've ever read before. While there have been stories build around conspiracy theories being true Tynion flips the script by giving us a world where truth is not an absolute. It's utter insanity, and I'm loving every bit of it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Apr 3, 2021

    The Department of Truth #7 manages to dive into a well-worn topic and still feel like a fresh take on the concepts it presents. This series continues to surprise with how adeptly it manages to reforge its visuals, as well as storytelling to fit whatever the new months concept is. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 30, 2021

    The Department of Truth brings up some rather large conspiracies in issue #7 that even casual sci-fi and fantasy fans should enjoy. The fact is, this series continues to weave conspiracies into a larger narrative, further impressing with a grander scheme by some of the best creators today. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 31, 2021

    Boss has an interesting art style and the minimalism of it works for this story and its themes. It does a great job of making the characters the focus and playing into the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    I admit that I've been critical of the Department of Truth and its rather piecemeal approach to the discourse around conspiracy theories. So, I'll just straight up say that I thought that this issue was the strongest one of the series. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 31, 2021

    Tynions better work in the series thus far has been exploring the weird edges delineating conspiratorial shadows, belief, and the drama of human emotion. Very little of what hits the page in Department of Truth feels fresh or original enough to explore an already thoroughly-explored topic with much of any interest. The fusion between the world of UFO lore and the world of the series was going to be kind of a challenge to try to fuse together in a compelling way. Tynion hadnt found a connection between lore and fiction that works.  Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 19, 2021

    The Department of Truth hit with a compelling hook that only got twisted deeper as the first few issues continued. It's why it was an easy choice for my #1 horror comic of 2020. After a few explanation-heavy issues now, it's lost most of its momentum. It's like playing a video game for seven hours and never getting out of the tutorial stage. We understand the premise now, so we don't need further examples. Let's get this going. Read Full Review
