The final showdown between the forces of freedom and the axis of oppression crashes to a cataclysmic conclusion! Will a fully powered Uncle Sam be enough to stop Cyborg Overman?

    It's a finale that brings a satisfying end to one of the best series DC has published in the last couple of years, and does so by balancing the tonal needs of a deeply patriotic and somewhat dated premise with the more cynical and "realistic" feel of modern comics. Read Full Review

    Since issue #1, this series has been a book for a thinking reader. There are lots of big ideas presented here that aren't always easily explored in the super-hero genre. Freedom Fighters #12 is no different. While there is the sense that it would've been great to learn more about each individual character, or have a bigger, more significant resolution, what we got is a finale that extends beyond the bounds of the comic itself and into the real world. Perhaps, there's something to be learned from this series. Read Full Review

    While I loved this series overall, I felt that this conclusion felt a little lackluster in what it showed us with our heroes and the aftermath of their quest to rid the world of the Ratzi menace.  That being said, there's still so much fun here and the art was amazing throughout.  Maybe I'm just not ready to be done with Earth-X and wanted to squeeze as much out of this issue as possible, but by the conclusion we do get an end to our story, I just wish there was more to it.

    For a series with a lot of political themes on its mind, it never really goes beyond the surface level on its concept. Read Full Review
