    Comicosity - Aaron Long Aug 7, 2014

    This series has taken some time to really pick up speed, but it is officially a rapid moving train and it is a great time to be on board. I'd argue some high profile additions to the art stable could take this from a B-series to an A-list knockout, but I can't help but come back each week so something is definitely working. #14 was a solid chapter of these stories. I'm in for more. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Aug 6, 2014

    This week brings some subtle conclusions to last weeks issue, but other than Lois Lanes scene doesnt add any new elements to the story. Regardless were still met with the setup of a few of the main characters getting their mini-scenes and pushing the story along just enough to warrant seeing where the story leads in issues to come.

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Aug 7, 2014

    Overall I am enjoying the story, but I care a great deal less about some story arcs (for example, Grifter's internment on Cadmus Island) than I do others (I find Cal's story and beard oddly compelling, plus I really could do with more from the 35 years in the future era) so find it frustrating when an issue focusses more on something that, at the moment, doesn't seem to be advancing the plot much at all. I'm also not completely clear on why everyone needs to be a dick in the future. Read Full Review

    Futures End definitely feels like it's moving somewhere now, but certain plot threads are dragging more than others. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 6, 2014

    Another week with an unimpressive issue that doesn't do much to further the story.  The only thing I can really say that's positive about the issue is Aaron Lopresti's art is great and that's about it.  The first segment to this issue I did get a chuckle from a fight, but if you're a Deathstroke fanboy you might find it ridiculous and call shenanigans.  All in all not much going on here.

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Aug 7, 2014

    This issue has a decent amount of action. Some of the stories move further along than others, but they all mostly move forward. It wasn't a bore to read but it wasn't like I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy either. It's above the standard for Futures Endthus far,and it's a decent chapter overall. I'm content with this issue. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Eric Tillirson Aug 8, 2014

    Yet another week and here I am putting Future's End down feeling unfulfilled. Part of me has to wonder if come September when DC does its line wide Future's End month will we be seeing this series pick up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Aug 7, 2014

    This is has a few good character moments, especially between Barda and Emiko as they form an unlikely alliance. Unfortunately the rest of the issue issue is bogged down with slow plot lines that add very little to the series as a whole. Hopefully this issue picks up the pace and produces some big reveals soon and help the series live up to its potential. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Aug 8, 2014

    Some fans will get a little excited at the glimpses of "Earth 2" characters in the final pages of "New 52: Futures End" but it's not enough of a lure to make this comic come together. Some issues of "New 52: Futures End" I've enjoyed, and others make me wonder why I'm continuing to check in on the series. Sadly, #14 falls into the latter camp. Read Full Review

    This was a step back from last week . The opening fight and the the vision Lois has of the heroes of Earth-2 aren't enough to carry on the good vibe I got from the last issue. I expect some peaks and valleys in a weekly but Batman Eternal doesn't seem to suffer from it nearly as much as this book does .
