    Overall, even though it doesn't quite have leg enough to stand on it's own, this issue is a must read for fans of the titles included who want to see their favorite characters go at it one more time. As for new readers who still go on to read this - if any particular characters catch you eye then by all means go out and look for more! Give your support and maybe we'll see more of these characters again one day. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Sep 20, 2012

    As a whole, DC Universe Presents #0 is a good read. As individual stories, the tales about O.M.A.C., Mister Terrific, and Deadman are considerably better than those about the Blackhawks and Hawk and Dove. Read them all, or just read the ones you want. It's kind of up to you when it comes to an anthology format such as this. I only read one issue of the "Challengers of the Unknown" arc because it just wasn't my cup of tea. But I jumped right back in with "Savage", then regrettably "Kid Flash". DC Universe Presents #0 is definitely worth the buy, if only for the fact that you get five stories from five different creative teams at a whopping 48 pages. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 22, 2012

    This type of book is always difficult to review, simply because there are five different creative teams, featuring five different casts with five wildly different tones, one of which features the work of Rob Liefeld and Marat Mychaels. For our five tales, my individual assessments go like this: Read Full Review

    Basically, the decision to buy this issue depends largely on how much you love OMAC. None of the other stories do much to suggest that their respective books should have remained on the stands. Read Full Review

    More than anything else, my overriding thought while reading this book was: “Wow, I guess really no one cares about “Men of War,” huh?” Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Matthew Szewczyk Sep 23, 2012

    This feels like a filler issue, jamming various cancelled comic books into one package and throwing an outrageous six dollar price tag on it just so they can be part of the zero issue series. It is a failed effort and unless you are a hard core collector of one of the heroes I would recommend that you skip this one as your money can be better spent elsewhere. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Sep 24, 2012

    DC essentially takes half the characters canned within the last year, many of whom failed to generate any popular appreciation whatsoever, and delivers using a hodgepodge of writers and artists of varying quality, many of whom never worked on the original properties. The fact this project made it out of editorial tells you they have quite a bit of tolerance for risk over there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 20, 2012

    Ultimately, "DC Universe Presents" #0 is a reminder on why exactly these characters had their books cancelled. If this was the best that could be mustered up for these stories, hindsight makes one wonder if this could have instead kept the 64-page format but introduced a bunch of new characters into the DC Universe rather than dredging this group up one last time. With the shorter page count, some big artists might have even been enticed on board, although originally-solicited creators Eric Battle and CAFU were both missing in action from "DC Universe Presents" #0. This was a fun idea, but the actual execution ends up falling flat. Read Full Review
