Demon Knights Update

Over the course of this weekend, I've come across some material on DC Comics's new series Demon Knights by writer Paul Cornell. DC now includes solicitations up to number 4. Praised by a number of critics including PopMatter's shathley Q, the series features Jason Blood/Etrigan, Madame Xanadu, Vandal Savage, and Ystina, the Shining Knight and opens at the fall of Camelot.

First up, David Uzumeri of Comics Alliance comments on its reworking of continuity in the wake of the Flashpoint event; he notes elsewhere that the new Stormwatch series (also by Cornell) is tied to Demon Knights by virtue of its founding by Etrigan.

While, shathley Q offers a more detailed commentary for PopMatters that establishes what he sees as the series strengths.

I welcome news of further comments/reviews on the series.
