The future looks dark! In this issue, Omnikron, ravager of worlds, is loose in Los Angeles-and only the Impossibles stand in the creature's way! Then, Mightor and Birdman take a very unfortunate shortcut that may never bring them back to Earth. Plus, Dr. Zin's deeds come back to haunt him as he and Dr. Quest try to escape from F.E.A.R.'s underground base...is their last, best hope a bunch of kids and a robot without a brain? RATED T

    With only three more issues left for this story arc, Parker and his artistic compatriots give the reader something which is rarely seen today's titles: nostalgia incorporated within a modern narrative, without playing down the consequences. Future Quest has given us just that with characters who we as readers have cared about since the beginning due to our familiarity to those actors. It doesn't matter if they may seem out of place … all we want is to find out what happens due to the magnificence of the story. Read Full Review

    I had to read this a few times to take it all in. That is what I suggest. Read the book to follow the plot. See how the Impossibles are going to get into trouble. Buzz is likely to get a stern lecture later too. We can wonder what is up with F.E.A.R. and how much we can trust Zin. The last panel leaves us wondering what will come next for Gargantuan/Frankenstein Jr. as the Herculoids arrive and are none too pleased. Yikes. Things look tense. Then, after worrying about the plot. Go through this page by page and look at Randall's magnificent artwork. There is so much to love. I can not imagine this book has much longer to go in the current state. At some point this story will end and either the book will end or we will see those individualized stories like we used to see on the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Either way, it is my opinion that the next few issues of this are going to be stupendous. Read Full Review

    I really like Ron Randall and think that he is a great replacement for Doc Shaner. His work is cleaner too. Randall is an old pro who delivers good super hero action. Veronica Gandinis colouring is also very good although he draws the palms of black characters the same colour as the rest of their skin. No one has melamine in their palms and soles. That means that they should not be coloured brown. Read Full Review

    Bits and Pieces:We've arrived at the final battle, boys and girls, and the action was ramped up to eleven for it! Every character we have met throughout the series has a part to play for part one of this amazing story's climax. The art, while not Shaner's, still manages to maintain the feel of old school cartoon that the series is known for. If you have loved the series so far, this is another fantastic chapter to the greatest Hanna-Barbera story ever told. Read Full Review

    The overall story is a slice of nostalgia that draws in the reader, but the depth of the story is what holds your interest. This is a very well done take on some classic characters. Hopefully, they will all have their moments to shine. The artwork is done very well and melds both the classic and modern in a way that makes me want to see what's next. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 26, 2017

    This issue brings our heroes together in the same place for the first time, which makes me look forward to next time around (and maybe some heavy-duty Space Ghost action, please? It's been 9 issues you guys!) Future Quest #9 is a solid issue with a lot of plot-related heavy lifting to do, meaning it's not my favorite issue of the book, but it's still a good read.

    "Future Quest #9" might be the best this series has been since the debut, but a few issues prevent this from reclaiming its crown as the best of the Hanna-Barbera books. Read Full Review
