Theres no length the Movement wont go to if it means rescuing one of their own from a cult that has deep roots in Burdens hometown.

    There are going to be lots of heroes like those in THE MOVEMENT #12, much sooner than you think. And even if Virtue, Katharsis, Mouse, Vengeance Moth, Tremor and Burden arent amongst them, they should always be remembered as pioneers in the stark white halls of DC Comics. We should all be sad to see them go, but thankful that they at least got a chance. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner May 8, 2014

    If you can't tell, I'm not ready for this to be the end. Not only does DC need a book like this in publication, but the medium in general needs it as well. This issue as the end is satisfying in that it wraps up all of the open storylines well, but I would love to see more of this team. Hopefully they'll pop up again in another book with Gail at the helm! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith May 7, 2014

    Let these characters into your heart and demand they show back up on the page. Too much work has gone into them to see them fade away, and to that point, Im not sure they could anyway. They will be demanding a presence for themselves thats how well they were built. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban May 8, 2014

    In the end, it's a wonderful send off to a title that should have been a massive hit. I am hereby making a personal appeal to you all to buy the trade, so you can enjoy these characters and this wonderful little corner of the DC Universe they carved out for themselves. Simone herself has hinted that some of the characters might reappear sooner rather than later; but until then this will be a sorely missed title. Perhaps if the trades sell enough, we will see Coral City's crime-fighters return. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain May 10, 2014

    Either way, The Movement #12 ends on a great note and it features the best of what the entire creative team could give us, building on everything that has come before this. This was definitely a great issue to bow out on. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio May 7, 2014

    If there’s any book that deserves to be continued, it’s this one. The Movement #12 captures all the heart of the series and allows these characters to shine. While the idea of this story may have been inaccessible to readers in the beginning, Simone and the creative team slowly but surely showed us the cores of these characters and ultimately won readers over. The final image of The Movement encapsulates everything that was great about it: the sense of family and camaraderie amongst an unusual and diverse group of people that overcome their problems together. That should make everyone want to be a part of the Movement, too. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 8, 2014

    All in all, given how well-crafted this issue is, it's a shame to see the book go, and The Movement #12 ends up being the best issue of its short run, wrapping up plotlines martial, romantic and familial in a way that feels natural and organic, and makes for a wonderful read. Read Full Review

    The Movement tried to change the world. They didn't manage it, but they tried, and we got to see them try. I'm going to miss these guys. Read Full Review
