    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 7, 2021

    While Williamson provided a strong conclusion to Infinite Frontier, he teased some major happenings for 2022 with an excellent cliffhanger. So long as that future direction is played out under Williamson's care, next year's event should make for a destination event for DC fans in 2022. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 7, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #6 is a great concluding chapter for Williamson's event series, but it makes clear that this whole series is merely the prelude to something much bigger coming in 2022. I can hardly wait to see what Williamson has planned. But I'm sure there will be more in Williamson's upcoming Justice Incarnate miniseries to keep me content in the meantime. Read Full Review

    Time and time again, Infinite Frontier has proved itself to be the most unabashedly ambitious, essential title DC is publishing right now, both in its premise and its execution"and with this finale, that couldn't be any more apparent. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 7, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #6 wraps up the event, but you'll fall for the exciting setup of the future of the DC Universe. The vastness of this universe and its incredible potential is on full display here thanks to the incredible ideas at work by its creators. This is an issue that has nearly no fat on it, is tightly paced, and focused on the limitless potential of the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Sep 7, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #6 ends the multiverse-spanning series while setting up new stories for DC's comic book slate in 2022. Williamson has proven himself to be one of the strongest writers in DC's stable with this title, and he should continue to hold that title as he is slated to take over writing duties for Batman as well as the upcomingJustice League Incarnateminiseries.

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Sep 13, 2021

    For all the the perceived “stringing along' that I feel is the main drive of this book, the series has been a fun slice of superhero life. Williamson has taken a bold step in focussing on characters that the more recent DC fans may not know, such as Jade, Obsidian and Chase. As an Ol' Timer, I appreciate that Williamson is giving panel time to some of the forgotten cast of heroes. I just wish that these events actually had a conclusion. Still there is always next time…….. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Sep 8, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #6 brings the latest universe shattering event series by DC Comics to an end with both threats and promises of things to come. A climatic battle is blunted somewhat by a plethora of epilogues, only for the dying pages of this book to pull me back in again. Read Full Review

    The story by Joshua Williamson was pretty good here. I liked this issue and a good ending always makes up for a lot. We certainly get that here. The art is pretty decent as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Sep 7, 2021

    Infinite Frontier #6 audaciously threads the needle between the rolling multiversal nature of the DCU and its other cornerstone, legacy. As the omniverse becomes more and more important moving forward, this will likely be seen as a bellweather for things to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 7, 2021

    Infinite Frontier ends by setting up some humongous stuff as we advance.  However, it didn't finish the story at hand as well as I was hoping it would.  The issue looked fantastic, but this ending made me like Infinite Frontier overall when I loved it most of the way. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 13, 2021

    One the one hand, I hate how nothing ever ends, it just spins into the next big crossover event. But on the other, this is a big energetic comic with a lot of moving parts that holds together pretty well and looks good doing it. Read Full Review

    This felt extremely satisfying with how things have built up and ended. It accepts the bad that happened to everybody but make it all feel like it's just part of life. I mean come on, the multiverse has always been part of DC, it just takes some normalization to make it acceptable. The possibilities are endless, especially with the return of characters like Roy. Too bad Barry never seems to catch a break with the return of Wally.

    a great ending to this series. It's not perfect for sure but I like how everything wraps up and this series ties in to the first Crisis on Infinite Earths. Roy Harper and Flashpoint Batman are the standouts of this series.

    While I cannot deny, this is not the best DC event i've read. This was really interesting from start to finish and wrapped up really well. This story had many plots going on at once and managed to tie them up nicely and did not force a happy ending.

    Even though the script could have been slightly better (although it felt like a tribute to COIE), i would like to see Williamson involved with more events of this scale, even just overseeing them or being a head writer, since he came up with some pretty amazing plots.

    I would rate the event 8.5/10

    Pros: interesting plots, great character development, beautiful artwork

    Cons: too much going on at once, requires lots of DC knowledge, script felt a tad bit more

    This is it.

    [Not]Multiversity Too unveiled as a stealth series manned by Morrischolar Josh Williamson; sure he's nowhere near King Moz but who cares!

    The Oblivion Machine is lit aflame once more.

    The fight between Darkseid and Justice Incarnate was abrupt and again Flash is at the center of some weird thing with the multiverse. However, the setup to the next DC event is surely interesting.

    I take back what I said. Once you reread/binge this series everything hits harder.

    There's really not a bad thing about this event, it has a fantastic cast of characters with interesting dynamics, incredible art, great villains and it treats DC's history with a sincerity and seriousness that I feel hasn't been done well in the Metal series at all. In fact, I'd argue that Metal joked around too much with it and I hated it.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this. The multiverse truly feels like a serious subject again filled with people who have some justifiable yet completely bonkers motivations. I do agree that Earth 0 has had it way too good even if they save the multiverse but it also seems like they sacrifice the least to more

    A very satisfying conclusion with a solid taste of what's to come. I had my doubts going in but have emerged on the other side a little more excited about DC's cosmic tales going forward.

    A good closing, maybe it was not the best of the climaxes, however this was a pretty decent series, I think so far the best of this year as far as DC is concerned.

    A decent ending though the subliminal messages throughout the book and in that epilogue don't sit well with me. I want to say I'm reading too much into it but they've been repeated throughout the book so it's not a coincidence. Xermanico is the surprise for me, he has been really great. Again, a lot of fan-service and Flashpoint Batman is the star so far so I'm curious to see what's next.

    "Let's not look a gift evil god in the mouth, okay?"

    I had no expectations for this book when it started coming out, but I'm glad it turned out to be an enjoyable six issues.

    I certainly could make do without the constant art changes, but at least the final issue had only one artist.

    It's also a bit refreshing that the story did not opt for the usual suspects and make it, again, about Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, but instead focused on the "smaller" characters that do not get half as much attention as these three.

    The Infinite Frontier miniseries has reached its conclusion and although they try exceedingly hard to sell us on the fact that this has all been world shifting, but it's hard to think of it as anything other than another attempt to retcon the DCU into what they want. As with every other world changing event we'll see how long the shelf life is on this one before they hit us with another.
