Kill or be Killed, Vol. 4 Reviews

    Sep 22, 2018

    I am wondering should I down my rating as it has been about a month since I finished the last volume of Kill or be Killed, and I do not actually really remember much about it anymore. That's weird. Anyhows, when picking my brain with a spoon, I do recall this being a fast-paced endi...

    Dylan?s in the nuthouse - but how will he continue to kill the guilty for The Demon from there?! And what the what: there?s a masked killer wearing the same outfit, executing criminal scum with the same MO - did Dylan just imagine he was an angel of death? All questions will be ans...

    The collected volume #4 comes out in a few weeks, but I read through the single issues, unable to wait to finish this, and I loved it. I can't talk much about it since there are so many surprises, but the conclusion does involve a resolution about whether Dylan is a vigilante or haunte...

    Well...It's over. Probably one of the greatest comics I've read in the last 5 years. Okay *Deep breath* let's do this. Dylan is now in the psych-ward. Don't worry, he'll explain how he got there. However, this final chapter in the 4 part series goes over the underlying tones of dep...

    A very enjoyable finale to a great series. Technically, this is probably Brubaker?s and Phillips? best work to date, just in the way the book was crafted. The storytelling is brilliant and gripping, the artwork is expressive, and it?s an incredible reading experience from start t...

    Brubaker and Phillips?s gritty vigilante tale comes to a banging end here! We open with Dylan in a mental institution filled with doubts as to whether the demon was actually real and he's trying to put his past behind him. But other forces won?t let him do that. Not the Russian mob...

    Kill or Be killed has all the scrapping of a psychological thriller with an unrequited love turned complicated relationship twist. Dylan is a graduate student turned vigilante when his dark mind turns on him resulting from untreated depression. He attempts suicide after his best friend...

    Pretty good conclusion to Dylans story. Not sure it really amazed me though, I was expecting something really amazing to finish it. Felt like the last few issues were more philosophical than crime thriller. I read this as single issues. So it might have made more of an impact as a sing...

    This volume was a little better than the previous, but I still think Fade Out was better. It bothers me this series didn't seem to handle mental illness as well as it could. Parts of this felt dated even though this is set in modern day. I still don't understand why his mother looks li...

    I really didn't see that ending coming. ...

    Brilliant book! ...

    "I guess that's all I wanted to say." Maybe it's a mistake to review this immediately after finishing it. It has one of those endings that's bold and blindsiding and leaves you uncomfortable and feeling something similar to the disappointment that comes from an anticlimax, but e...

    I'm glad they added the copycat subplot. Adds more tension and confusion (the good kind). I don't quite like the ending though. Not the fate of Dylan (that was somewhat poetic). But the implied aftermath. Felt like it was thrown in there at the last minute just for shocks. Despite that...

    On the fence with this ending volume. Art (Sean Phillips) and color (Elizabeth Breitweiser) are awesome. Brubaker really takes the meta-fictional aspects to their full conclusion and I suppose after all the series he's done he felt the need to question and pontificate on narration, whi...

    The final volume of Kill or Be Killed is an excellent ending: I'd just intended to read an issue or two, but I couldn't put it down until I came to the end. The funny thing is, Brubaker puts his protagonist into a mental institution as the intro to this volume. You couldn't do much ...

    See my full thoughts here: https://youtu.be/OAqnViTfEsA See, this is how you write a proper conclusion to a story. You stick to the themes and ideas you've had from the beginning, then expand on them and let them pull the plot to its natural conclusion. This isn't some sort of super...

    Holy mother of god! It?s really over? This is one of my favorite comics and it could have gone on for so much longer. I was so hoping the demon storyline would play out for years to come. But we can?t have everything we want. Narrator specifically wanted to keep the ending from bei...

    The conclusion of the latest (and one of their best) Brubaker-Phillips pairing. It's rare that I want graphic series to run longer, but I wanted more out of this. But while Kill or Be Killed has left the world too soon, the authors sent it off right. The unusual form, the mood, t...

    Jesus that was amazing. I don?t really have another word for it. In so many ways that was perfect, it was everything I wanted to read expertly put together for maximum effect. In my thoughts on the first volume I complained about the characters. But they?ve grown on me. Dylan...

    Since the very beginning of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips? Image title, Kill or be Killed has never broken any new ground in terms of being a gritty crime noir, a genre that is second nature to the two creators. Despite that, however, this comic has always entertained with its bleak ...

    I love Brubaker's writing and Phillips' art. I will admit that I even sympathized with Dylan in a way that I suspect a lot of people do. One demerit for the supernatural/metaphysical angle, which doesn't do any work for me. ...

    It was a great story. I?m glad that it?s being adapted into a series by Syfy. ...

    5? for the whole series. I bought this series in individual issues as I didn't want to wait until all the trades were released. It's a captivating story, one of Ed Brubaker's best works in my opinion. Sean Phillips' excellent artwork seals the deal. This is a must-read for all...

    Dylan había hecho muchas cosas pero su vida pendía de un hilo, entre la cordura y sus ganas de acabar con cuanta maldad estuviera frente a el, y mira, el camino obvio era que terminar en el manicomio, dudando y dudando cada vez mas de el mismo, mientras la policía veía detrás de t...

    Kill or be Killed je fantasticka serie. To co Brubaker predvadi v poslednim sesitu by asi proslo malo komu, respektive malo kdo by si na to troufnul. Kazdopadne ta posledni strana me dava nadeji, ze Dylanuv svet sme nevideli naposledy. ...

    Brubaker & Phillips did it again !!!! A perfect piece of sequential art, a hellish ride in the mind of a deranged killer that kept me reading on the edge of my seat. ...

    Amazing ending for the series! ...

    An incredible conclusion to one of the best-written and timeliest stories I've ever seen from comics. ...

    I love(d) this(these) graphic novels! The story is so solid and the art is beautiful. I'm sad it's over(?) but glad I gave it a try. Dylan will be missed in my eyes. ...

    Boom. ...

    I am wondering should I down my rating as it has been about a month since I finished the last volume of Kill or be Killed, and I do not actually really remember much about it anymore. That's weird. Anyhows, when picking my brain with a spoon, I do recall this being a fast-paced endi...

    Dylan?s in the nuthouse - but how will he continue to kill the guilty for The Demon from there?! And what the what: there?s a masked killer wearing the same outfit, executing criminal scum with the same MO - did Dylan just imagine he was an angel of death? All questions will be ans...

    The collected volume #4 comes out in a few weeks, but I read through the single issues, unable to wait to finish this, and I loved it. I can't talk much about it since there are so many surprises, but the conclusion does involve a resolution about whether Dylan is a vigilante or haunte...

    Well...It's over. Probably one of the greatest comics I've read in the last 5 years. Okay *Deep breath* let's do this. Dylan is now in the psych-ward. Don't worry, he'll explain how he got there. However, this final chapter in the 4 part series goes over the underlying tones of dep...

    A very enjoyable finale to a great series. Technically, this is probably Brubaker?s and Phillips? best work to date, just in the way the book was crafted. The storytelling is brilliant and gripping, the artwork is expressive, and it?s an incredible reading experience from start t...

    Brubaker and Phillips?s gritty vigilante tale comes to a banging end here! We open with Dylan in a mental institution filled with doubts as to whether the demon was actually real and he's trying to put his past behind him. But other forces won?t let him do that. Not the Russian mob...

    Kill or Be killed has all the scrapping of a psychological thriller with an unrequited love turned complicated relationship twist. Dylan is a graduate student turned vigilante when his dark mind turns on him resulting from untreated depression. He attempts suicide after his best friend...

    Pretty good conclusion to Dylans story. Not sure it really amazed me though, I was expecting something really amazing to finish it. Felt like the last few issues were more philosophical than crime thriller. I read this as single issues. So it might have made more of an impact as a sing...

    This volume was a little better than the previous, but I still think Fade Out was better. It bothers me this series didn't seem to handle mental illness as well as it could. Parts of this felt dated even though this is set in modern day. I still don't understand why his mother looks li...

    Brilliant book! ...

    I'm glad they added the copycat subplot. Adds more tension and confusion (the good kind). I don't quite like the ending though. Not the fate of Dylan (that was somewhat poetic). But the implied aftermath. Felt like it was thrown in there at the last minute just for shocks. Despite that...

    On the fence with this ending volume. Art (Sean Phillips) and color (Elizabeth Breitweiser) are awesome. Brubaker really takes the meta-fictional aspects to their full conclusion and I suppose after all the series he's done he felt the need to question and pontificate on narration, whi...

    The final volume of Kill or Be Killed is an excellent ending: I'd just intended to read an issue or two, but I couldn't put it down until I came to the end. The funny thing is, Brubaker puts his protagonist into a mental institution as the intro to this volume. You couldn't do much ...

    See my full thoughts here: https://youtu.be/OAqnViTfEsA See, this is how you write a proper conclusion to a story. You stick to the themes and ideas you've had from the beginning, then expand on them and let them pull the plot to its natural conclusion. This isn't some sort of super...

    Holy mother of god! It?s really over? This is one of my favorite comics and it could have gone on for so much longer. I was so hoping the demon storyline would play out for years to come. But we can?t have everything we want. Narrator specifically wanted to keep the ending from bei...

    The conclusion of the latest (and one of their best) Brubaker-Phillips pairing. It's rare that I want graphic series to run longer, but I wanted more out of this. But while Kill or Be Killed has left the world too soon, the authors sent it off right. The unusual form, the mood, t...

    Since the very beginning of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips? Image title, Kill or be Killed has never broken any new ground in terms of being a gritty crime noir, a genre that is second nature to the two creators. Despite that, however, this comic has always entertained with its bleak ...

    I love Brubaker's writing and Phillips' art. I will admit that I even sympathized with Dylan in a way that I suspect a lot of people do. One demerit for the supernatural/metaphysical angle, which doesn't do any work for me. ...

    5? for the whole series. I bought this series in individual issues as I didn't want to wait until all the trades were released. It's a captivating story, one of Ed Brubaker's best works in my opinion. Sean Phillips' excellent artwork seals the deal. This is a must-read for all...

    Dylan había hecho muchas cosas pero su vida pendía de un hilo, entre la cordura y sus ganas de acabar con cuanta maldad estuviera frente a el, y mira, el camino obvio era que terminar en el manicomio, dudando y dudando cada vez mas de el mismo, mientras la policía veía detrás de t...

    Kill or be Killed je fantasticka serie. To co Brubaker predvadi v poslednim sesitu by asi proslo malo komu, respektive malo kdo by si na to troufnul. Kazdopadne ta posledni strana me dava nadeji, ze Dylanuv svet sme nevideli naposledy. ...

    Brubaker & Phillips did it again !!!! A perfect piece of sequential art, a hellish ride in the mind of a deranged killer that kept me reading on the edge of my seat. ...

    Pretty good conclusion to Dylans story. Not sure it really amazed me though, I was expecting something really amazing to finish it. Felt like the last few issues were more philosophical than crime thriller. I read this as single issues. So it might have made more of an impact as a sing...

    This volume was a little better than the previous, but I still think Fade Out was better. It bothers me this series didn't seem to handle mental illness as well as it could. Parts of this felt dated even though this is set in modern day. I still don't understand why his mother looks li...

    I'm glad they added the copycat subplot. Adds more tension and confusion (the good kind). I don't quite like the ending though. Not the fate of Dylan (that was somewhat poetic). But the implied aftermath. Felt like it was thrown in there at the last minute just for shocks. Despite that...

    On the fence with this ending volume. Art (Sean Phillips) and color (Elizabeth Breitweiser) are awesome. Brubaker really takes the meta-fictional aspects to their full conclusion and I suppose after all the series he's done he felt the need to question and pontificate on narration, whi...

    The final volume of Kill or Be Killed is an excellent ending: I'd just intended to read an issue or two, but I couldn't put it down until I came to the end. The funny thing is, Brubaker puts his protagonist into a mental institution as the intro to this volume. You couldn't do much ...

    See my full thoughts here: https://youtu.be/OAqnViTfEsA See, this is how you write a proper conclusion to a story. You stick to the themes and ideas you've had from the beginning, then expand on them and let them pull the plot to its natural conclusion. This isn't some sort of super...

    I am wondering should I down my rating as it has been about a month since I finished the last volume of Kill or be Killed, and I do not actually really remember much about it anymore. That's weird. Anyhows, when picking my brain with a spoon, I do recall this being a fast-paced endi...

    Dylan?s in the nuthouse - but how will he continue to kill the guilty for The Demon from there?! And what the what: there?s a masked killer wearing the same outfit, executing criminal scum with the same MO - did Dylan just imagine he was an angel of death? All questions will be ans...

    The collected volume #4 comes out in a few weeks, but I read through the single issues, unable to wait to finish this, and I loved it. I can't talk much about it since there are so many surprises, but the conclusion does involve a resolution about whether Dylan is a vigilante or haunte...

    Well...It's over. Probably one of the greatest comics I've read in the last 5 years. Okay *Deep breath* let's do this. Dylan is now in the psych-ward. Don't worry, he'll explain how he got there. However, this final chapter in the 4 part series goes over the underlying tones of dep...

    Holy mother of god! It?s really over? This is one of my favorite comics and it could have gone on for so much longer. I was so hoping the demon storyline would play out for years to come. But we can?t have everything we want. Narrator specifically wanted to keep the ending from bei...

    The conclusion of the latest (and one of their best) Brubaker-Phillips pairing. It's rare that I want graphic series to run longer, but I wanted more out of this. But while Kill or Be Killed has left the world too soon, the authors sent it off right. The unusual form, the mood, t...

    Jesus that was amazing. I don?t really have another word for it. In so many ways that was perfect, it was everything I wanted to read expertly put together for maximum effect. In my thoughts on the first volume I complained about the characters. But they?ve grown on me. Dylan...

    Since the very beginning of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips? Image title, Kill or be Killed has never broken any new ground in terms of being a gritty crime noir, a genre that is second nature to the two creators. Despite that, however, this comic has always entertained with its bleak ...

    I love Brubaker's writing and Phillips' art. I will admit that I even sympathized with Dylan in a way that I suspect a lot of people do. One demerit for the supernatural/metaphysical angle, which doesn't do any work for me. ...

    It was a great story. I?m glad that it?s being adapted into a series by Syfy. ...

    5? for the whole series. I bought this series in individual issues as I didn't want to wait until all the trades were released. It's a captivating story, one of Ed Brubaker's best works in my opinion. Sean Phillips' excellent artwork seals the deal. This is a must-read for all...

    Dylan había hecho muchas cosas pero su vida pendía de un hilo, entre la cordura y sus ganas de acabar con cuanta maldad estuviera frente a el, y mira, el camino obvio era que terminar en el manicomio, dudando y dudando cada vez mas de el mismo, mientras la policía veía detrás de t...

    Kill or be Killed je fantasticka serie. To co Brubaker predvadi v poslednim sesitu by asi proslo malo komu, respektive malo kdo by si na to troufnul. Kazdopadne ta posledni strana me dava nadeji, ze Dylanuv svet sme nevideli naposledy. ...

    Brubaker & Phillips did it again !!!! A perfect piece of sequential art, a hellish ride in the mind of a deranged killer that kept me reading on the edge of my seat. ...

    Amazing ending for the series! ...

    I am wondering should I down my rating as it has been about a month since I finished the last volume of Kill or be Killed, and I do not actually really remember much about it anymore. That's weird. Anyhows, when picking my brain with a spoon, I do recall this being a fast-paced endi...

    Dylan?s in the nuthouse - but how will he continue to kill the guilty for The Demon from there?! And what the what: there?s a masked killer wearing the same outfit, executing criminal scum with the same MO - did Dylan just imagine he was an angel of death? All questions will be ans...

    The collected volume #4 comes out in a few weeks, but I read through the single issues, unable to wait to finish this, and I loved it. I can't talk much about it since there are so many surprises, but the conclusion does involve a resolution about whether Dylan is a vigilante or haunte...

    Well...It's over. Probably one of the greatest comics I've read in the last 5 years. Okay *Deep breath* let's do this. Dylan is now in the psych-ward. Don't worry, he'll explain how he got there. However, this final chapter in the 4 part series goes over the underlying tones of dep...

    A very enjoyable finale to a great series. Technically, this is probably Brubaker?s and Phillips? best work to date, just in the way the book was crafted. The storytelling is brilliant and gripping, the artwork is expressive, and it?s an incredible reading experience from start t...

    Brubaker and Phillips?s gritty vigilante tale comes to a banging end here! We open with Dylan in a mental institution filled with doubts as to whether the demon was actually real and he's trying to put his past behind him. But other forces won?t let him do that. Not the Russian mob...

    Kill or Be killed has all the scrapping of a psychological thriller with an unrequited love turned complicated relationship twist. Dylan is a graduate student turned vigilante when his dark mind turns on him resulting from untreated depression. He attempts suicide after his best friend...

    Pretty good conclusion to Dylans story. Not sure it really amazed me though, I was expecting something really amazing to finish it. Felt like the last few issues were more philosophical than crime thriller. I read this as single issues. So it might have made more of an impact as a sing...

    This volume was a little better than the previous, but I still think Fade Out was better. It bothers me this series didn't seem to handle mental illness as well as it could. Parts of this felt dated even though this is set in modern day. I still don't understand why his mother looks li...

    I really didn't see that ending coming. ...

    Brilliant book! ...

    "I guess that's all I wanted to say." Maybe it's a mistake to review this immediately after finishing it. It has one of those endings that's bold and blindsiding and leaves you uncomfortable and feeling something similar to the disappointment that comes from an anticlimax, but e...

    I'm glad they added the copycat subplot. Adds more tension and confusion (the good kind). I don't quite like the ending though. Not the fate of Dylan (that was somewhat poetic). But the implied aftermath. Felt like it was thrown in there at the last minute just for shocks. Despite that...

    On the fence with this ending volume. Art (Sean Phillips) and color (Elizabeth Breitweiser) are awesome. Brubaker really takes the meta-fictional aspects to their full conclusion and I suppose after all the series he's done he felt the need to question and pontificate on narration, whi...

    The final volume of Kill or Be Killed is an excellent ending: I'd just intended to read an issue or two, but I couldn't put it down until I came to the end. The funny thing is, Brubaker puts his protagonist into a mental institution as the intro to this volume. You couldn't do much ...

    See my full thoughts here: https://youtu.be/OAqnViTfEsA See, this is how you write a proper conclusion to a story. You stick to the themes and ideas you've had from the beginning, then expand on them and let them pull the plot to its natural conclusion. This isn't some sort of super...

    Holy mother of god! It?s really over? This is one of my favorite comics and it could have gone on for so much longer. I was so hoping the demon storyline would play out for years to come. But we can?t have everything we want. Narrator specifically wanted to keep the ending from bei...

    The conclusion of the latest (and one of their best) Brubaker-Phillips pairing. It's rare that I want graphic series to run longer, but I wanted more out of this. But while Kill or Be Killed has left the world too soon, the authors sent it off right. The unusual form, the mood, t...

    Since the very beginning of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips? Image title, Kill or be Killed has never broken any new ground in terms of being a gritty crime noir, a genre that is second nature to the two creators. Despite that, however, this comic has always entertained with its bleak ...

    I love Brubaker's writing and Phillips' art. I will admit that I even sympathized with Dylan in a way that I suspect a lot of people do. One demerit for the supernatural/metaphysical angle, which doesn't do any work for me. ...
