    If you like fun, intelligent, off-beat superhero comics, you'll like Final Crisis Aftermath: Dance. In a comics market filled with generic superhero vehicles, this series is a breath of fresh air. There's really nothing else quite like it on the stands. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jared Starr Jun 29, 2009

    The book follows the same basic formula as the first issue, which should make it accessible to anyone that missed #1. So far this mini is full of the kind of social commentary on globalization and commercialism I've come to expect from Joe Casey since reading his runs on WildCATs, so if you're a fan of comics, especially superhero books, with a social consciousness, I recommend picking Dance up.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 25, 2009

    I am a sucker for a team book, especially a team book with unusual characters, so the fact that I liked this issue is no surprise. Joe Kelly really handles the characters and their neuroses and crushes well, and Andre Coelho's art is evocative of manga without being a full-blown stylistic knockoff. The whole issue feels like a prelude to something more, though, and the endings of both the battles come somewhat abruptly, leaving a sense of anticlimax throughout. Still, the "Twitterati" feeds that serve as thought captions for Most Excellent Superbat are still fun, and the story overall seems to be heading somewhere interesting. This sort of territory (the corporate/media superteam) has been well mined these last 15 or so years, but I like the new angles that we're seeing here. It's more than just 'Youngblood 2.0′ (something that can't even be said for Youngblood these days)with the book ending upin a more existential "What are we here? What are heroes anyway?" kind Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Jun 20, 2009

    Really, though, the fun of this series is that Joe Casey tries to keep everything zipping along at the speed of contemporary culture. Scenes begin and end briskly, and we jump from location to location with no time for reflection or introspection beyond the most superficial. But that fits these characters, that fits this comic, and if he had CrissCross back on the pencils and inks, it might look like a comic you wouldn't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Jun 27, 2009

    This book has an uphill battle ahead of it to find fans and should not make it harder for them. I suspect that if this book were a Marvel Comics production and was tied, however loosely to the X-MEN franchise, it would be an outright success. Read Full Review
