    I may not be all that knowledgeable about this series, but I wouldn't say no to reading more of it if the opportunity presented itself. If you have yet to, maybe you should follow the example of Lois and take that leap of faith. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 5, 2014

    Aaron Lopresti, Art Thibert and Hi-Fi are on art detail this week and they make a really...... I don't know, a set up issue?  Anyway they make it look great even though nothing really happened here.  It's like this week's entire issue is comparable to being on a roller coaster that just goes up a little, then back down and back up a little again.  We never get the thrill of the fall here and I hope that just means that I can throw my hands up and scream next issue because right now, I'm a little bored.  Great looking issue though.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 5, 2014

    Like so many issues before, the comic is still setting things up. Only one story made a big advancement in this issue and that was quite disappointing. With so little happening or advancing, the comic is really starting to drag and test my patience once again. It doesn't matter how good anything else was in the comic; if the story is this slow and barely moving forward, it really makes for a dull and boring read. Meanwhile, the other weeklies are always keeping the action, the story, and the excitement going. Why can't this comic do that? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Nov 6, 2014

    I'm happy with the pace this weekly comic is moving. This issue provides a tantalizing confrontation that you're going to want to know more about, a promise of a huge battle to come, and a train wreck situation from which you won't be able to look away when it happens. When reading the series as a whole, this issue is a worthy addition. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Nov 6, 2014

    This week brought up a couple of cool scenes that would be nice to see continue next week. Its also nice to see Lois taking her job so seriously, maybe someday we can all strive to be more like Lois or at least strive to have a well-paying job at a newspaper. Lois should really be a superhero Read Full Review

    That's right, folks, the moment you have been waiting for since the beginning of Future's End is finally here. I'm sure next issue will delve into this more, but man that was good to see. Read Full Review

    Supes' soups Nov 5, 2014

    It's starting to build to the climax of the story. Batman vs Batman Beyond is teased in this issue and that's going to be fun to watch unfold. Green Arrow's team launching an assault on Cadmus is something I also anticipate. Terry McGuinnis still seems incompetent as a super detective but that's part of his charm...I think. It's starting to get good and there will be a lot of action to come. I'm interested on what's to become of Frankenstein, Stormwatch, Brainiac, and Superman but those storylines were untouched for this issue. Brother Eye may just be a ruse, even though it was invented by Holt and Wayne. I wouldn't be surprised if Brainiac turns out to be the major player, in the last issue of Doomed, there were hints that he would play a part in Future's End.

    Unlike previous issues that have felt disjointed due to jumping around to some of the less interesting plot lines while incorporating clunky exposition heavy hard to follow dialogue, this was nice. Both art and story came together as well as the pieces presented and gave it some nice flow.

    Meh. That is about all that comes to mind when thinking of Futures End.
