It all ends here! Melmoth is looking to destroy the world before anyone else gets their evil hands on it, but he better watch out-the Monsters aren't ready to see their planet die. It may not treat them the best, but it's home! Frankenstein in particular has a big stake in stopping Melmoth. If he can defeat this diabolical mastermind once and for all, it means he will be free of the curse of their shared blood.

    OverallSteve Orlando concludes what has been an absolutely epic story and leaves himself a little wiggle room to return by having Frankenstein say that he will be waiting to see what other evils will seep into this universe from the multiverse. Hopefully, he will get a chance to tell us that story in another mini-series at some future date. Read Full Review

    Gotham City Monsters #6(Orlando, Nahuelpan, Mulvihill, Napolitano) closes out this surprisingly excellent mini-series with blood, guts, and a whole lot of heart. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 22, 2020

    This team really gels with this issue, which is why it's so unfortunate that this is the final chapter of this series. It's clear that writer Steve Orlando has more in store for these characters and he definitely leaves the door open for more adventures. I certainly hope he gets a chance to do so, as there is plenty of room in the DC Universe for a group like this. Yes, we have Justice League Dark, but Gotham City Monsters scratches a different itch. It deals with the outcasts and the misunderstood rising up to stop an evil that has struck at the others like themselves. Even monsters need a hero every now and then. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 12, 2020

    Steve Orlando and Amancay Nahuelpan's oddball superhero-horror miniseries has been a surprising treat over its run, and the last issue delivers a satisfying conclusion that does justice to all the players. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Feb 12, 2020

    Gotham City Monsters #6 is a rock solid conclusion to a great miniseries. It doesn't take any major chances in terms of the plot, but Orlando and Nahuelpan have done more than enough to earn themselves a traditional, but satisfying final issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 12, 2020

    While I enjoyed the hell out of the idea of this series and the thought that it was dealing with more of the DC Universe than we've seen in other books coming out, this ending did leave me wanting more than the big fight that we kind of got in every issue of this mini.  The scope of the story that I loved was just kind of left aside as our heroes just parted ways, but overall I did have some fun here and thought that the art was great.

    Final Verdict: 6.5 "Gotham City Monsters" #6 doesn't quite stick the landing, but strong character work and good art make for a solid issue. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Feb 12, 2020

    Ultimately, this series had more potential than it cashed in on. The complexity of the stakes and the promise of lasting implications were abandoned. It certainly makes for an entertaining read. The only problem is, it seemed like it had the power to be more than just entertaining. Read Full Review
