"One of the 10 best graphic novels of 2010."
-- Comic Book Resources
-- Spinetingler Magazine
"Jon Evans and Andrea Mutti deliver a neat little package about big dirty secrets. This book lingers."
-- Brian Azzarello, New York Times best-selling author of FILTHY RICH and JOKER.
"The Executor is a winner. From its creepy cover to its cathartic ending, it hits all the notes of a top-flight thriller... and delivers a handful of moments so startling, they jump off the page... An expertly done thriller, cinematically told."
-- The Onion A.V. Club
"DC Comics' Vertigo Crime strikes again with The Executor, and it is their biggest score yet ... the narrative takes off and never looks back until the final graphic panel ... compelling and emotionally crushing ... don't miss The Executor."
-- Pulp Serenade
"A classic yarn ... a tremendous accomplishment in this combination of medium and genre. It's the kind of compelling crime drama that had me eating out of its hand ... Artist Andrea Mutti offers some truly knockout visuals ... Of the Vertigo Crime offerings, The Executor is an easy favorite."
-- Paul Montgomery, iFanboy
"The most successful story produced in the [Vertigo Crime] series thus far ... a well-written, taut mystery that manages to engage far more deeply than one might expect with legacies of race and violence (and repression) ... hard, edgy and quite genuinely surprising."
-- The Comics Journal
