    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 2, 2015

    Prez #6 is an absolutely fantastic finale to the first half of this series. It brings a lot of things that have been building up through these past six issues to a head here, making for a great conclusion with strong artwork and even stronger writing. This is quite possibly one of the best comics DC or even any company has put out this entire year. It's coming back in March and even if it wasn't, it would be a terrible shame to miss out on one of the best comics of 2015. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Dec 4, 2015

    It cannot be expressed enough that entering the world of Prez means throwing caution to the wind and embracing the absurdities of the world that this creative team has forged. However, with each passing line of dialogue or image it becomes apparent that this absurd world is scarily similar to our own. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Dec 7, 2015

    Inspired by a reasonably obscure 1970s comic book (one cancelled after only four issues), it spoke to the youth culture that came out of the baby boom following World War II. With the so-called Millennial generation seen as an echo baby boom, Prez is an argument for taking seriously a generation driven to distraction by mobile ubiquity, giving them a voice by showcasing their solutions to problems created by previous generations. This issue promises that the story will be continued, with Beth confident to take her ideas on the offensive. With a very chaotic 12 months of U.S. politics ahead, this might just be the comic the world needs right now. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Dec 6, 2015

    Prez #6 packs a bunch of humor and satirical bite into the closing issue of the first mini-series. It's a satisfying conclusion but leaves me wanting more. I just hope there's more to be had. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joel Bowers Dec 15, 2015

    In the final issue of this arc, the story may have flown by, but I liked it.   I enjoyed this series and thought it was hilarious as a whole, even if  it was a bit stretched out and probably could have used a little more focus. We barely saw any character follow ups besides Tina which left me wanting so much more.   Mark Russell has promised Prez will eventually return and I hope we get some closure. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 8, 2015

    Prez #6 is a decent wrap up of the first half of the storyline. While often it is fun and humorous, at times it seems to tackle situations that require a little more heart and may not always be fodder for satire. Overall, its somewhere in the middle, not the best of the first 6 issues. Its important to keep in mind that we are dealing with some situations that sometimes accurately reflect the world in which we live. I think the thing that this book succeeds at the most is finding a way to comment on our world while not seeming to be about it at all. Because, even the notion of electing a president via Twitter is just as odd as electing a president as the electoral college. Read Full Review

    The first arc ended really strong, I can't wait for the 2nd arc -- I just wish DC had been smarter in promoting this title.

    This comic is just so freakin' awesome! It's smart, it's funny, it's relevant. It says it will be continued, and it damn well better! Best book coming out of DC right now hands down, better even than Batman (partially because the Gordon-Batman stuff hasn't hit the same heights). The only thing that would improve this issue would be to give it a couple extra pages of breathing room because it is just so dense.

    I can't wait for it's return and I hope it's better promoted when it does. This was more enjoyable than most of DC's big-name titles right now.
