Its the battle youve been waiting for: Batman vs. Batman Beyond! But since Bruce taught Terry everything he knows about combat, who knows who will win?

    I really dug Andy MacDonald's art on the book this week and while he might have done an issue before....... Well I don't remember his name here and research is tedious, all I'm trying to say is that the book looked great, so good on MacDonald and Hi-Fi for giving us gold.  We're hitting some serious plot points this week and it's all coming together to make something epic.  Fifty Sue getting scary and kicking ass, Batman vs. Batman and Firestorm's heroic return are all things that are explored here and it just really gets me hyped for the next week.  A fun issue and even though we've got a lot of interesting stories besides the ones present here, it's definitely got me interested in what's going on with these characters.  So much story..... So much awesome.  Check it out. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 14, 2014

    Now this issue felt better that the last. Sure, we definitely still got some setup going on with a lot of these stories and one tale ended rather anti-climactically, but hey, one of these stories is really picking up steam now and is getting rather exciting. Even better is that it appears that the comic will be following up on this thread the next issue instead of putting it off until next time. Hopefully this is a good sign for the rest of the coming issues. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Nov 13, 2014

    This week gave us some more surprises and set us up for some more confrontations to follow-up in later issues. And if you take a look at the preview page of issues to comethings are looking promising. Read Full Review

    Talk about stall tactics. Yeah, the action in Future's End has ramped up drastically over the past month or so and it is a much better book because of it, but the writers still insist on playing hide and seek with the most interesting bits of the story. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Nov 13, 2014

    This week was another slow week for Futures End fans. While the fight between the two Batmen was exciting the rest of the issuefelt lackluster. While many things seem to be set up here, not enough happened to make this issue really stand out from the rest. Hopefully some of the dangling plot lines from this issue will lead to huge moments for next week. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Nov 13, 2014

    I don't need huge consequences in order to appreciate a comic, nor do I need “blow me away” art. Unfortunately, this issue brings neither to the table. If this comic were food, it would be ice cream that's sat in a bowl on the kitchen counter for three hours and is now all melted into some aerated warm creamy un-goodness. It wasn't going to be nutritional, but it could have been fun to eat. This issue wasn't gonna move mountains but it could have been fun to look at. Read Full Review

    The art was merely pasable, not much plot advancement

    A step back in my opinion after a solid few issues in the past month. Not much dialogue between Bruce and Terry which is a shame because now you have standard fare fighting that isn't too memorable especially if the art is only so-so. Fifty Sue also has got to be the most annoying character in the New 52 by far. Again cliffhangers all around. I want more on the Lois story. Future's End can sometimes be a mess with all the subplots they're trying to weave. I guess it's necessary in a weekly series because you could probably tell each subplot's story in about 12 issues. Future's End was an ambitious book but unfortunately with multiple parallel stories, different writers and artists, there's been more missteps than I a reader can forgive. I remember being super excited after issue 0 and 1 and then things started getting messy. It looks like Maddy is about to be turned into a new Firestorm in that teleporter too. I hope the finale is worth it because I've trudged through a lot of mud to get there.

    I'm really just all around disappointed with this series.
