    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Oct 2, 2014

    Fans of the series will certainly be entertained by this issue. It has action, suspense, emotion, and even a few twist too. The surprise tie in to last weeks DOOMED #2 also gives the series a new sense of significance. DC was must truly be planning something big for this series, and I for one can't wait. In the end this issue has everything you want in a comic, and breathes new life into a series that was beginning to lose its footing. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Oct 2, 2014

    The New 52: Futures End #22 is a really good outing for a weekly franchise that has seen some high and lows. There are plenty of questions left unanswered but after what's been unmasked I have to say this next phase rocks so far. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Oct 2, 2014

    I enjoyed this issue overall. We're back in the familiar saddle of many stories in few pages, but it felt like it was less crammed. It's not very exposition heavy for a Futures End issue, so that's a plus. Also, there are several reveals and interesting plot points to find in these pages. Keep 'em coming. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Oct 2, 2014

    This week gave us a big reveal and also reminded us of a few of the other lingering storylines. Anytime Frankenstein shows up has proven to be a good time, so heres to hoping we see some more of him soon! Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Oct 4, 2014

    Patrick Zircher is the artist here, with Hi-Fi, Carlos M. Mangual and Ryan Sook on their usual duties as colourist, letterer and cover artist respectively. The cover for this one is damn awesome, but unfortunately has nothing to do with the contents of the issue itself, which is a distinct disappointment. Where the internal art is concerned, it is great, as it usually is with Patrick on this title. His Madison is a little weird at first, and the same goes for Jason, but as the issue moves on, he really seems to get in the groove and draws the rest of the cast of this issue really well, with more-than-fantastic colourwork from Hi-Fi, especially with all the different lightning effects and all.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 1, 2014

    I really didn't like this issue.  I've been so pampered by exciting issue after exciting issue that I wasn't ready for it to make a complete stop.  Patty Z does a great job in conveying the characters and story, but with the exception of the last segment of this book, there wasn't really anything that anyone would care about.  This title was doing so well for so long that I didn't think it would end..........  Hopefully next week it becomes good again and we can get back to the things that matter in the story.

    I groan every time the Firestorm characters show up. But then Frankenstein and the beginnings of a new Stormwatch come along, bringing Black Adam in tow to finally take the fight to Brainiac and the issue reaches a good grade :)

    Back to the confusing side of this book.

    This was a bit disappointing after the last 4 issues and almost felt like 2 books. The first half was exposition heavy and focused on the least interesting characters with art that was not up to level that I have come to expect from Patrick Zircher. However the art did improve towards the end with a couple nice reveals.
