    Starro the Conqueror has finally taken control of Vril Dox and now, the rest of his team of REBELS must try to rescue him before Starro spreads his control to the rest of the universe. Unfortunately, Starro has on his side, sheer numbers, careful planning and a bruiser who can match Lobo in battle.So the team has to revive the monsterous Tribulus to even the odds. It looks like DC Comics basically gave away the main plot point of the issue by having Tribulus on the cover. This title has done a great job in handling multiple characters, giving Starfire, Captain Comet and company a chance to shine in the face of a very complex plot. If there is any let-down, it is in the amount of space devoted to Lobo's fight scene, only to have it end in an anti-climax.The art is also refreshingly clear and easy to follow, making the story accessible, even to new readers.Sadly, this book like many other DC titles, is on the chopping block so it is likely that the story in these last issues is being com Read Full Review

    So this is it, "R.E.B.E.L.S." You beat the odds on surviving past your first year, but with a new large event (and a handful of related mini-series) around the corner, your number was up. At this point, this is probably preaching to the choir, and it certainly won't save the title. But if you're not a reader of "R.E.B.E.L.S." and are interested? Scour those quarter bins, you're going to find 28 issues (plus one annual) worth of fun. Read Full Review

    All this needs to be wrapped up in one more issue ... which makes me think that much of the lingering plotlines won't be all packaged neatly with a bow. I am sure Starfire will land on her feet in some title but the rest of these characters will most likely be shelved until they become cannon fodder in some universe-level crossover. I would say there must be room for a DC Cosmic book ... but it isn't like DC pulled the plug after 4 issues. And this book was high quality. Maybe there just isn't a market. I will miss Vril Dox and his Machiavellian ploys, his way of inspire fealty, and fear, and loathing. And unfortunately I missed him here. Hopefully he gets the Starro-drone removed early next issue so he can star in his own book. Read Full Review

    This issue offers just slightest spark of liveliness, demonstrating a hint of potential quality had Bedard chosen to concentrate his writing in different ways, but too late, alas, too late. Read Full Review
