    While I love all the art in this finale issue, the finale itself left a bit to desired as it made some weird choices to set up a Sideways story and for Dan Didio to say goodbye to DC Comics. Beyond that though, we leave our Metal Men with an interesting new status quo that I would love to see more of in the future but felt that the way we say goodbye to them here wasn't the best decision in that it felt thrown together.

    With this issue, DC's latest take on the Metal Men comes to a close, in a way that both feels fittingly sentimental and a little too cheesy. Read Full Review

    It feels as much like a goodbye from Dan Didio as a final issue, and the team spreading to the four winds, while feeling unmotivated, does work thematically. Read Full Review

    Metal Men #12 was simply a tale of two stories. The first six issues were about what it means to be human and what it means to love. Magnus and Tina were the stars, the rest of the team had a lot to do. This was a great book. Then, DiDio left, thing at DC took a turn and so did this book. Maybe, it was always supposed to end like this and I am just upset because this was not the book I thought it would be. We may never know. For now, I would say reading DiDio's final work at DC is worth your time, but just take it all with a grain of salt. I do love the final page. That is what I was hoping for the whole time.

    This series was far from perfect, but I do not regret reading it. I was personally happy when I heard the news Dan DiDio was leaving DC. I don't have anything against Dan, but I disagreed with the way he had authority over the characters. In interviews I have always enjoyed hearing from him, he seems likable that way. Anyway, it is very clear Dan DiDio loves the Metal Men. Like *really* loves the Metal Men. He makes some deep cuts and ties this well into main DC continuity, with the inclusion of the Dark Multiverse. While reading this, it is hard not to feel his passion for writing these characters. Dan's enthusiasm for them becomes infectious. At best he has inspired me to read some old Metal Men comics, and that was really Dan DiDio's job more
