    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...

    A young man who puts on a mask and kills criminals because he thinks he?s been cursed by a demon ends up in a psychiatric hospital. Who could have seen that coming? After Dylan has a meltdown in his personal life he?s been locked up and doped enough to keep him foggy, and it als...

    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...

    Kinda not the ending one would anticipate for this series. ...

    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...

    Okay so I know what many of you are thinking. ?L, why are you only giving this a 3 star review? You just gave volume 3 a 5-star review AND you tend to fanboy over Brubaker, Phillips and Breitweiser? While both are true, this ending is disappointing. What?s it about? Umm......

    Pretty solid end to a pretty solid story. World: The art is fantastic and this new change in locale does bring with it a slight change in color scheme which is nice. The world building is good and continues the story, the scope is smaller this time around and is still focused on ch...

    So Kill or be Killed has been consistently one of the best comics on shelves for the duration of its run. So of course I was scared of it ending, lots of comic blow the ending, and a crap finish can really spoil what was otherwise a fantastic journey. Kill or be Killed's ending is goin...

    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...

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

    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 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...

    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...

    I suppose it is fitting that a series with such a playful narrator would play around with the narrative format itself for its finale, but it is also a disappointing way to end such an intriguing series. Even if he didn't stick the landing, Brubaker really nailed the middle volumes of t...

    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. ...

    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...

    a very good ending to a fantastic series. We all know Brubaker loves crime and this is one of his better works. First of all the writing and art are top notch, both Ed and Sean really pulled out their best work. Dylan is in the nut house now and in typical Kill or be killed fashion we ...

    Okay so I know what many of you are thinking. ?L, why are you only giving this a 3 star review? You just gave volume 3 a 5-star review AND you tend to fanboy over Brubaker, Phillips and Breitweiser? While both are true, this ending is disappointing. What?s it about? Umm......

    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...

    a very good ending to a fantastic series. We all know Brubaker loves crime and this is one of his better works. First of all the writing and art are top notch, both Ed and Sean really pulled out their best work. Dylan is in the nut house now and in typical Kill or be killed fashion we ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I suppose it is fitting that a series with such a playful narrator would play around with the narrative format itself for its finale, but it is also a disappointing way to end such an intriguing series. Even if he didn't stick the landing, Brubaker really nailed the middle volumes of t...

    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. ...

    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...

    a very good ending to a fantastic series. We all know Brubaker loves crime and this is one of his better works. First of all the writing and art are top notch, both Ed and Sean really pulled out their best work. Dylan is in the nut house now and in typical Kill or be killed fashion we ...

    Brubaker and Phillips continue to show that they probably the best team putting out these type of short-run series. Never outlasting its welcome, Kill or be Killed ends here the only way you would expect it to. Even though you see the ending coming, the strong storytelling makes it a s...

    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. ...

    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...

    Kinda not the ending one would anticipate for this series. ...

    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...

    Okay so I know what many of you are thinking. ?L, why are you only giving this a 3 star review? You just gave volume 3 a 5-star review AND you tend to fanboy over Brubaker, Phillips and Breitweiser? While both are true, this ending is disappointing. What?s it about? Umm......

    Pretty solid end to a pretty solid story. World: The art is fantastic and this new change in locale does bring with it a slight change in color scheme which is nice. The world building is good and continues the story, the scope is smaller this time around and is still focused on ch...

    So Kill or be Killed has been consistently one of the best comics on shelves for the duration of its run. So of course I was scared of it ending, lots of comic blow the ending, and a crap finish can really spoil what was otherwise a fantastic journey. Kill or be Killed's ending is goin...

    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...
