    Metal Men #6 is an engrossing tale that brings a meaty realness to the Pinocchio trope, Davis and Didio take something that's been done a million times and turns it on its ear to create something unique that truly draws you into the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 12, 2020

    Metal Men continues to be one of my favorite books that DC Comics is putting out right now and the care and craftsmanship that was taken in telling "Tina's Story" in this issue just gets me really excited for what's to come out of this series as we progress because not only will we see the Metal Men like we've never seen them before, but the prospects of what the Nth Metal Man is really up to and Chemo making an appearance makes this a series that I don't want to miss.  The art is as fantastic as it's been since day one and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina May 19, 2020

    Metal Men #6 is perfectly placed in the order of this series. It moves the story along and sets readers up pretty perfectly for the final half of the arc. If you are reading these as they go, or if you just picked this up, you are in for a pretty interesting ride. Sure, this issue may not be action packed, but the writing, by one of the greats of all time, is on point in what is likely his final DC run ever. If nothing else, you should pick it up for that reason. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 12, 2020

    This is a decent issue that explores what it means to understand that what you thought you knew about your identity was wrong all along. The Metal Men are characters rife for character development and this issue is proof enough that more is better if given the chance to delve deeper into them. I'm excited to see what Didio and Davis do with issue #7, which reportedly will focus on animal versions of the Metal Men. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Quinn Morris May 26, 2020

    Standard art, with an interesting but poorly-executed premise. Read it if you like Metal Men and are okay with Will Magnus being a jerk. Read Full Review

    There are some occasionally-great moments (an earnestly-silly splash page midway through the issue comes to mind), but there isn't a lot here that will make this a must-read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge May 14, 2020

    David and Wright give a nice little jolt of action in the interlude as well, cutting a hemisphere away to show a new nuclear-powered robot escaping its enclosure in a big, splashy and largely wordless sequence. But even with that jolt of pep, Metal Men #6 stands largely inert. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 12, 2020

    Shane Davis art is the saving grace although Didio doesnt give him much to work with in terms of exciting action sequences. The most intense scene is when the Metal Men yell at Will and a familiar foe busts out of its latest containment cell. Read Full Review
