    While this series has been rocky from the start and continues to be, it does feel like the creative team is starting to find a better grove. This issue is proof of that, and this feeling is aided greatly by artist Patrick Zircher and colorist Hi-Fi. Zircher has a solid style that screams superhero and Hi-Fi really makes these pencils pop.

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson Aug 1, 2014

    Futures End #13 is not a good comic book issue. Its messy, nothing important happens, readers are treated with respect by still being kept in the dark 13 issues later. It is backed by a team of incredibly talented writers, which leads me to believe that the amount of editorial oversight and plot points they are beholden to are directly responsible for the mediocre quality of Futures End #13. There is really nothing that I can recommend to you about it even if youre just looking for some more Tim Drake. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 30, 2014

    Nothing here to really further the story, but it's fun anyway.  It's just sitting there telling you that it doesn't really serve a point, but it's okay with that and after you're done reading you'll be okay with that too and feel a little like a jerk for judging it in the first place.  There isn't much really to say about this issue, the stories functional and Patty Z's art is nice to look at, but it's like a brief glimpse into a mundane life.  Yeah it's happening to someone and they might care about it, but it doesn't really matter to you in the long run.  Does that make sense?

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Aug 2, 2014

    The series I'm torn between hating and loving and loving to hate (and hating to love) continues its weekly quest of confusing, intriguing, and aggravating me. Writers Brian Azzarello, Keith Giffen, Jeff Lemire, and Dan Jurgens are joined by expert artist Patrick Zircher in the newest issue, which improves on art, but falls slightly farther down the hole in regards to plot.

    This issue isn't terrible. Some stuff happens in this issue that furthers the story. Some of it is enjoyable to read and it's all pleasing to the eye. I didn't quite "get" each section but other sections shined. Remember, with our scoring system a "5" is average. It's not a failing score. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Jul 31, 2014

    This issue left me disappointed. With a big character like Barda being introduced I expected bigger things to happen with her. This issue lacked the action and cliffhangers that have have come to love from this series. While the art was great, it felt wasted on what was one of the series most forgettable issues.

    Kabooooom - Marcus Hammond Jul 31, 2014

    Comic book readers should expect more from a weekly comic than just names on the cover. Lemire, Jurgens, Giffen, and Azzarello are hugely talented writers, yet Futures End #13 is a huge disappointment. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Aug 4, 2014

    Michael Holt, who is referred to by name several times, ironically is visually identifiable. But the conversations he has with his so-called uSphere, the next generation of his floating T-Sphere that spouts lines like "Is there something troubling you, Michael?" sound like a chat between David Hasselhoff and K.I.T.T. on an episode of "Knight Rider." Annoyances like these don't exactly help "New 52: Futures End" #13, either. This issue just spins its wheels while being too disconnected and inaccessible and is anything but a selling point for the series. Read Full Review
