The team returns to Challengers Mountain, only to find it completely obliterated! And without the mountain to replenish their borrowed time, it looks like they're out of second chances. But for the Challengers to live to fight another day, they'll need to use a power with a consequence that spells certain doom!

    Anyway, the ending of this issue holds some promise. Synder excels at writing high concept books.New Challengers is definitely worth the read if you are just going in for the premise alone.From the looks of it, the team's adventures are only going to get more extravagant as we move forward.

    In contrast to Damage, New Challengers is almost overwhelming with the amount of plot it is trying to pack into a six-issue miniseries. Read Full Review

    Gillespie and Snyder do a great job of getting the reader to care about these people while at the same time being concerned where they will fit in regards to the original Challengers. The book asks a lot of questions as it unfolds its mystery and that type of layered storytelling is worth exploring. Read Full Review

    An interesting story with well-done artwork and colors, though perhaps held back a bit by the necessity to understand prior continuity. Read Full Review

    New Challengers seems to rush a bit to a conclusion for next issue, but also makes me feel a tad like I missed an issue in between numbers four and five in the process, even though I've read all of the series so far. The focus seems to come back around in the end, and the art continues to be a joy to look at, which has me excited for a thrilling conclusion. Read Full Review

    This issue provided more questions than answers. I love a good mystery that I can follow, and I hope the reader is not getting lost. I have faith that the next two issues will help draw clearer lines for the sake of the storytelling.And until then, it's some gorgeous art. Let your eyes drink it in. Read Full Review

    Across five issues, New Challengers has never found a driving purpose behind its tale, and this expository installment fails to offer any new reasons to stick around. Read Full Review

    Hello ? Is there someone at scripture ? Hello ? You lost me ?
    Prof isn't the prof of the challengers univers ? Ok so where he is. Because If I understand correctly the other version of Prof (The mummy ones) aren't too. And why did we jump in another challenger team (The one of this Prof form the dark multiverse). And Why I think Moses was wrong ? It seem even this prof know for the original challenger chained in the boon giant "god ?" and didn't care.
    When we go back to our team in Planet Olikron I even thinked it was another team, and I was ready to drop this story.
    Shame because so far it was good. So I believe Snyder was more the voice in this one than the another, I didn't like anymore is work since some time.
