    After my initial fears, I believe I successfully conveyed my feelings towards Sheriff of Babylon. While some things go over my head, overall they don't take away my enjoyment of the product. By the time Sheriff of Babylon #4ends our main cast appears to be coming together with a common goal. We learn Nassir and Saffiya have history with one another. I wonder how long it will be before we meet the villains. However, many of the characters exist in shades of grey. Which mirrors the results of war. Read Full Review

    The Sheriff of Babylon is a fantastic adult series exploring recent history packaged in familiar pop entertainment and a genre that we often see. It's a riveting series that has me looking forward to the next issue and I seriously have no idea what to expect next. I just know it's going to be amazing. Read Full Review

    Sheriff of Babylon is well on its way to joining the shortlist of Vertigo's best; and for a publisher that's made the likes of Sandman, Scalped, and Preacher, that is high praise indeed. Read Full Review

    There is a reason Tom King was just named the new Batman writer. The former CIA operative can do it all and is not limited by genre. Mitch Gerads just keeps getting better. His name should be attached to any comic book that uses war/crime drama.  Read Full Review
