    I give credit to Scott Snyder for putting together a book of epic proportions. Between cloned zombies, raptors, and body snatchers, there's little you won't love. The characters are great, each with their own unique backstory, and the adventures are wild. I could see myself jumping into another arc of New Challengers just to see what unknown corner of the DC universe they explore next. Read Full Review

    I want to throw a tantrum and tell people that its not fair. I really liked the possibilitiesthat this new team had presented, and I think that they would have really been a great device to explore the impacts since the Dark Multiverse came to Earth. I hope that they have created enough interest that we can still see them play a role in future DC storylines. Read Full Review

    Scott Snyder and Aaron Gillespie's revamp of the Challengers of the Unknown comes to a close in New Challengers #6, and this series has turned out to be an intriguing, if overstuffed, look at superheroes and mortality. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 17, 2018

    It wasn't bad, but there were significant portions of the story that felt like things were missing for the sake of pacing. I wish the story had a few more issues to help establish the team better, but you never know what could happen in the future. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Oct 18, 2018

    NEW CHALLENGERS #6 is a fun, action-packed conclusion to this New Age of Heroes series. While it delivers an interesting villain, the overall characterization and pacing started to fall apart. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Oct 19, 2018

    Though writers Aaron Gillespie and Scott Snyder introduce some neat ideas in this issue, like the Challengers having to fight through dimensional bleeds and face down their corrupted original counterparts, this issue reads like the series is working on borrowed time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Oct 17, 2018

    The story introducing the New Challengers fails a bit at the end under the weight of the concepts at play but some strong art and good character work at the beginning of the series make it worth a glance for those interested, or if you have a pension for the Challengers of old.

    Despite all of the window dressing, this is pure anti-climax. Read Full Review

    This series was devoid of good and interesting characters, as well as a story worth caring about. I'm not even sure what exactly they were stopping in this issue. This whole series has been a chore to get through and I'm glad it's over, to hopefully never return.

    I'm so sorry to have to write this. Really. But this was a disaster. This new challengers adventure beginning was so god, it turn bad at the middle of the story. The previews issue didn't let many hope for a good ending but ... He, I wanted to trust in Snyder & Gillespie. Mad right ?
    This issue give all the bad move you have to avoid when writing a story ... Well not all but many of them.
    Festival the deus ex machina totally what the fuck. Strangled in another univers the challengers find a boxe (Seem as they use before). That's here just because. That can send them in any another Challenger mount or any dimension, but "hey" they finish on the right place at the right time or close.
    Then you have the not so bad (but a little more

    Got to be honest, I don't know if I even registered what I just read and I didn't care enough to reread panels when I felt like I missed something. The worst sin of any comic is to have no point or hook, and this series felt like it had no reason to exist. This is an insult to Jack Kirby's creation.
