Dead of Night Featuring Devil-Slayer #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Dead of Night Featuring Devil-Slayer #1, about which I write the following sentences: "Like Garth Ennis and Howard Chaykin's recently-concluded 'Phantom Eagle' MAX series, this is a war comic. It's not WWI on display here, though, it's our current war in Iraq. And while Ennis and Chaykin embraced the disillusionment and the randomness of their time, writer Brian Keene and artist Chris Samnee embrace the chaos and the corporate influence of our time. 'Dead of Night Featuring Devil-Slayer' #1 isn't an allegory about our current military escapades. It's distinctly about what's going on in Iraq right now, but with a supernatural twist at the end. This isn't called 'Devil-Slayer' because he's fighting metaphors. There's some ugly little horned critters by the final page."
