    I can safely recommend Last Will and Testament to pretty much anyone looking for a well written piece of fiction. While the connections to Final Crisis are rather broad, there is still a good story making up the foundation of this issue. Those that hate Meltzer have probably already sworn the book off but for everyone else: youre not likely to find a better writer than Brad Meltzer when it comes to personal stories that tap the core of human existence. This is but another example to add to an already excellent portfolio of work. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Aug 27, 2008

    We get glimpses of DC's other big characters, they all take a back seat to the plot against Deathstroke. So yes, you'll get your brief glimpses at Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman, but none of their appearances feel forced (though there's no denying they're obligatory). And who better to illustrate these sequences than Joe Kubert, himself. Hopefully this isn't his last hurrah through the DC Universe for Joe, but if it is, I'll consider this a treat. For Joe Kubert's artwork alone, this book is worth its bloated cover price. Luckily, the story and art delivers, too. Read Full Review

    I thoroughly enjoyed DC Universe Last Will and Testament. Of course, it should be noted that I like Meltzer's style of writing and enjoyed his run on Justice League of America. Meltzer delivers a deep story that is intense, well crafted and has incredible character work. Read Full Review

    Whether or not you enjoy this comic book comes down to whether or not you enjoy the Geo-Force plot at the centre of it all. Meltzer clearly gets these characters and understand what makes this particular C-list hero tick. Of course, to appreciate what Meltzer does with this unlikely central protagonist, one has to be versed in his history. Not only does one have to know of "The Judas Contract" to follow everything in the script, but Identity Crisis and Batman and the Outsiders (both the current 1980s series). Still, while it would certainly help to have that background on the tip of one's brain, it's not vital to appreciate the entirety of the story. Meltzer's take on Prince Brion as something of a military man and so desperately driven to take down Deathstroke at all costs makes seem like much more than the generic super-hero he's been in the past. The climactic conflict between Geo-Force and Deathstroke is a compelling one, as much a psychological fight as it is a physical one. Meltz Read Full Review
