The event of the year concludes here! The Lone Gunmen have finished investigating several urban legends-a group of ghost-hunters, mutant turtles that live in the sewers, shape-changing alien robots, and a vengeful spirit from beyond the grave-after receiving Internet files from future that foretell a plague that wipes out most of humanity. Now it's a race against the clock as the Gunmen, with Agents Mulder and Scully, attempt to save the world!

    A terrific conclusion that has me hoping that all involved with return to another go on the Gunmen. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Mar 26, 2014

    Until the last few pages, this one was all over the place. The story, humor, and artwork all had moments that were both brilliantly executed and painfully flat. The ending, however, is one that will stick with you long after the book has been put down. If you've been reading the whole series up to this point, the payoff at the end makes slugging through the issue's weaker aspects totally worth it. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Errick "Mr. Enigma" Perry Apr 1, 2014

    In the spirit of fun, there is an extra scene, an alternate ending in a parallel dimension, where all of the key players, (minus TMNT, Transformers, and Ghostbusters) have a metafiction moment. It is a scene where they are still racing against the clock, discussing alternate fates and realities due to their recent discoveries of the presences of time travelling and dimension hopping, and ultimately face the facts of the possible effects that sending Trooper Crow into a dimension jumping machine could have; in which they all die. As for the fans that stuck through this event, those folks are left with an apathetic final drop in the roller coaster, where they were left going, Wooooooo? Thats it? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Mar 26, 2014

    Conspiracy had a great premise and some great tie-ins, but it trips at the finish line. Some inconstant art and a story that underplays the preceding stories makes this feel a little unfinished. Read Full Review
