    This issue could have been a great finale I think. It feels like that well enough. So I suppose it is a good thing that I'l be able to get another dose of the fix in less than a month now so I won't complain! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Sep 25, 2014

    Star Spangled War Stories Featuring GI Zombie: Futures End #1 is a fun and exciting tale, that also doubles as what would be a great ending for the series whenever it comes. The writing is great, G.I. Zombie is a great lead, the story's enjoyable, and the art does have some good qualities. If you liked the previous two issues of the series, definitely give this a look.

    The Latest Pull - Eric Tillirson Sep 26, 2014

    I now know who G.I. Zombie is, what he's capable of and why it's the coolest thing around. My hat is off to Jimmy Palomiotti and Justin Gray. They have written a character who knows how to party. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 30, 2014

    While this issue seems to be oddly out of continuity with the rest of the Futures End books, it's fun enough to recommend. In fact, this issue is a good one for those who want to read a one-shot horror comic without a mask or cape in sight. The art could have been better, but it doesn't ruin the experience. Check it out if you are still into this whole zombie craze. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Roberto Bexar II Sep 30, 2014

    Futures End SSWS is all about a zombie apocalypse coming to Gotham City and GI Zombie coming to the rescue. Re-read that last sentence and that's all you really need to know about the book. The whole comic has a feeling of World War Z and 24 to it, with some great little panels and scenes that seriously made me want this to be more than just a one-shot. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Sep 29, 2014

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed G.I. Zombie, but also disappointed that the grandness of the story is never really captured. To be fair, Gray and Palmittoi are penning a single issue, so they're operating with different rules. A story this good, though, needs either the space to stretch its legs, or an editor who will keep its scope from expanding outside of its confines. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Yonatan Ol Oct 1, 2014

    This was a fun comic to read. I am a sucker for final showdowns and this had it all. I think writers Justin Gray and Palmiotti wrapped up the story a little toneatly,but overall it was a fun read. The art was also a bit of a mixed bag. The art in the background was much more impressive than the foreground but overall the frames read well. If you are a fan of GI Zombie this issue is definitely worth a read. Read Full Review
