    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 12, 2022

    Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #6 is fantastic, and thats all there is to it. Williamsons twist has made this a different story than what everyone thought, which is a great thing. Sampere, Sandoval, and Sanchez kill it on the art, something a book this action-heavy needs, and Peteris letters do a wonderful job of delivering the dialogue in the best way. This issue wont win over the naysayers, but theyre missing out on an amazing comic. Read Full Review

    Josh Williamson has been building to this story for years, and while it definitely has a different pace than other line-wide event, it's no less thrilling. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Nov 9, 2022

    Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 is grandiosity incarnate. The story booms with excitement and the stakes feel pretty high. While I'm not thrilled with DC's reversion to an Infinite Multiverse, I have enjoyed the ride so far. Williamson's script is heartfelt and thrilling. Sampere's art is fantastic. These two individuals make for a great team and therefore a great book. Read Full Review

    The big battle is there to test the next generation of heroes, and when you see how far one will go to save the day, you'll know that kid is doing a job meant for Superman.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 8, 2022

    The big finale cliffhanger also feels insignificant for an event of this scale. It really seems like the lack of rich connections to the ongoing DC titles ultimately proved too much to make Dark Crisis as important as it should have been. Maybe Williamson can nail a satisfying ending, but it likely won't mean anything by this time next year. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 8, 2022

    Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #6 has everything that you look for a big event. There are massive scale action sequences that get over the scope of this event. There is a race against the clock as things grow more desperate on both sides. All of that makes for a great comic book. But even then, there are things missing that make Dark Crisis #6 miss the mark on being a complete reading experience. These missing element causes certain plot developments of this story to be rushed as we head into the ending. I'm still excited to find out how Williamson and company will end Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths but this is definitely not a perfect event. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Nov 8, 2022

    Jon Kent didnt need to prove himself to the readers or his dad. And frankly, hes not Superman nor will he ever be. But, he CAN be an outstanding hero of his own. The same goes for Jace Fox as Batman and Yara as Wonder Woman/ Wonder Girl. Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 felt like someone passive-aggressively telling me what I should like and why. And because I simply cant shake that feeling, on top of the other items mentioned earlier, Im going to go with a strong pass on Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 this week. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Nov 8, 2022

    Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 is another hollow spectacle in a series full of them, trying to simultaneously establish a new DC Universe without establishing an emotional or thematic reason for fans to care. The reveals are telegraphed and unimportant, as theyre repeatedly undercut in an attempt at a metacommentary on the nature of the crisis, speeding through the plot without really engaging with the various beats. In a massive, universe-spanning event, Dark Crisis could have used a true five-footer issue, where characters could pause and regroup after the relentless plot and provide emotional context and reinforce the human-level stakes of the series. With only one issue to go, one can only hope the dawn of the DC Universe is brighter than this crisis. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Nov 10, 2022

    Much like my review, Dark Crisis is conceptually the babysitter that throws a house party. I expect you to take care of the house and the children, not play beer pong with my vases. Williamson just wanted to play in the DC Comics library, but nobody asked him to do this. A responsible custodian takes care of the intellectual property in their care. Unfortunately, they butchered the Justice League and nerfed their sidekicks and allies to make three new characters look good for a few panels. It is a gorgeous looking book, but I doubt it will be worth it in the end. Read Full Review

    There is a very nice moment where Superman the elder jumps in to save Jon from being killed by Doomsday.  So maybe it is all over? Pariah is gone.   Read Full Review
