Diana Westby has tried to avoid doing what she knows is necessary to stop a terrorist attack because she knows that in so doing, she would have to pay the ultimate price. Where do you turn when there's no one you can trust, and no one who will believe you, and millions of lives are on the line...including yours? In the fiery fourth-act conclusion to the second Twilight Zone arc, Diana makes a decision that will change the future of the world forever.

    Rod Serlings dream of THE TWILIGHT ZONE was to use stories to make us think about our lives, our attitudes, and our choices.  He did not want to make us agree with him; that would be propaganda.  Serling's drive was to make us ask hard questions. Ask them to him, to our leaders, and -above all - to ourselves.  He wanted us to ask the hard questions, and think about the hard answers.  Straczynski carries on that tradition here.  I first encountered J Michael Straczynski a long time ago on 'a shining beacon in space, all alone in the night, ' and I knew then that he had a way with ideas, images  and language that would entertain me, irritate me, agree with me, challenge me, upset me, and even horrify me - but most of all, make me think.  This is the purpose of literature.  Literature should not just entertain us - it should make us THINK.   Read Full Review

    A nightmare caused by a coin has a woman confront a future she feels she can't change. If she doesn't, we all die. Perfection at every level earns this my highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    I admit I started Twilight Zone on issue five, which left me confused, but yearning for the whole story. While you can jump on at four or even nine when it releases, I recommend starting from the beginning because youll miss out on great storytelling. Issue eight is nearly mystical in its closing of Dianas arc. I cant wait for the next one. Read Full Review

    This is definitely a series to stick with for at least another arc. I haven't seen anything to suggest that Straczynski is doing more issues after his initial twelve and Dynamite hasn't revealed who might be taking over after. They'll have large shoes to fill for sure. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Sep 2, 2014

    While it's true that the Twilight Zone has always been a veiled morality tale, this latest arc forgot that one essential element: the creepy storytelling. What a bummer. Read Full Review
