    Simply put, Im in for this series. Since The End League is an on-going, it wont have to cram too much story into one mini-series. Ive always said to every comic shop owner who runs my pull list, Everyone needs at least one good team book in their monthly box. Those who are tired of Marvels and DCs latest attempts can rest assured that another option is on the way. Read Full Review

    All that said, this is only the first issue, and even if The End League doesn't exactly burst out of the gates, it did leave me wanting more. The title also has one huge plus going for it the art of Mat Broome, who delivers sleek, dynamic and powerful artwork from start to finish. Though Broome's work is a bit over-rendered for my tastes, it does manage to tell a hell of an exciting story and fits the tone of Remender's dark script quite well. The jury's still out on this one, but I'll certainly be back for more. Read Full Review

    Lets look at the good: Remenders dialogue is decent enough, artist Mat Broome does a fine job, and, again, the premise is intriguing. Im going to give this book another try as it has a lot of potential, but they didnt live up to that potential this first time out. Read Full Review

    If you are into skewed versions of your favorite Marvel and DC heroes and like your comics doomy and gloomy, this is a book for you. Read Full Review

    So while its an interesting concept, it doesnt seem fully-formed enough to make me want to keep reading. Who knows, Remender might pull the rug out and come up with some really good stories, but Im just not interested enough to come back for more. But that might just be my own preferences; if youre intrigued by the unique concept, it might be worth a look. Read Full Review

    The plan for getting food is perhaps one of the worst plans Ive ever read. You know that place where we got owned last time? Lets go back and do it again! That and the revelation of what did happen the last time held no resonance what-so-ever because you had no idea who Astonishman was talking about because you have never had people introduced with a common naming system. (Who is Nick? Why, he is Soldier America of course! Keep up, reader!)I think 10 points are enough. There is very little redeeming in this book. There was the odd very cool drawing, with decent pencils and nice inks, but they just got lost in the mess that was the execution of this book. Read Full Review
