    Future Quest has become an even more expansive story than I thought from the first issue, but as the action intensifies and we are introduced of even more heroes from the Hanna-Barbera 60's universe, you have to wonder how much more can we take? As quickly as they are introduced, they are sucked up by the Omnikron vortices, although you do see some fighting in the background. I just hope that we aren't bombarded by them in a massive battle at the end of the series! But then again, that wouldn't be a bad thing either! Read Full Review

    Bits and Pieces:If I had to describe this issue, and this series, in a single word, its fun. The characters are memorable, the action is intense, the humor is funny. This is just a great book. The art is phenomenal as usual and continues to capture the feel of cartoons of yesteryear while still looking new and cool. If you haven't picked up this series yet, what are you waiting for? The adventure is just beginning! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Aug 31, 2016

    If you need your comic books to brood and only brood, do not pick this up. If you need your comics to take themselves totally seriously, do not pick this up. If you are someone who wants those comics, but also appreciates things that are self-aware and silly, while telling compelling stories, this is your book. The new Hanna-Barbera line is really a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 4, 2016

    There are multiple artists at play in this issue, but the consistency of the production smooths over any transitions beautifully, and every page of the issue is lovely to behold. The sequence of Mightor in action is particularly lovely, but I may be the only fan of stone-age Space Ghost, so I'm a bit biased. Future Quest #4 is another towering achievement, a love-letter to the characters, creators and even voice actors of class H-B properties, and I hope that it's building to something that makes it all resonate, but even if it comes apart at the seams, this issue is worth the ride.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Sep 2, 2016

    The good news is: you don't have to be a geezer like me to enjoy this series - it's a strong story loaded with fantastic characters and a world-shaking menace, but it's all explained so anyone can pick up on the adventure. No prior knowledge required! But if you are old enough to remember it, there's lots of extra gold in here for you. I defy you to read it without smiling! Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Sep 1, 2016

    The expansion of the cast is successful and adds a lot more elements to the mix. This series is still the best book to come out of DC's re-imagination of Hanna-Barbera, and more people should be reading it. The only problems that remains is waiting untilnext month for the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 1, 2016

    At this point I'm wondering if Future Quest needed a few more months to simmer before seeing the light of day. As it stands, we still haven't seen an issue drawn entirely by main artist Evan Shaner. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 31, 2016

    The bad guys steal the show in Future Quest #4, but you can't overlook the fantastic introduction of two more Hanna-Barbara characters. This issue has an anthology feel even though it's only 20 or so pages, which is why the main story lacks teeth with too many characters being jam packed at once. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Sep 5, 2016

    Look, I want to love this book. I really do. But until the story can read in a way that is more inviting to a casual, or even ignorant, fan, it will never transcend its time period and nostalgic nods of approval. Read Full Review
