    If nothing else, this short-lived series is evidence that DC has great talents in Costa and Cafu, and it boggles the mind why these two don't have replacement projects in the works already. Read Full Review

    Really, this final issue encapsulates the Blackhawks series: it starts to mount into something great, but due to pacing and many other problems, this title is kept from what it should be. It's Static Shock all over again. Hopefully, the characters and stories will return again. But probably not. For anyone interested in sci-fi series, this may be a good place to start. Just don't expect amazing artwork or well-crafted characters " just passable artwork and likeable characters at best that could have been better. Read Full Review

    This finale of the short Blackhawks run is very much a bittersweet ride. Readers picking it up should expect the logistical limitations of the series' end to impact this book significantly. The experience should still be satisfactory to most that pick up this issue, though, since it's unlikely that people who aren't fans of the series will be doing so. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, that best summarizes not only this issue but the entire "Blackhawks" series. It was serviceable, had some decent moments, showcased some good talent, but nothing here is memorable. Of the fifty-two titles that launched last September, this one had the most untapped potential. Maybe at some point the Blackhawks will resurface, but they'll need some help to catch notice.
