Don't miss this first chapter of a most unexpected two-parter! This wouldn't be the first instance where the Legion of Super-Heroes have gone back in time looking to add to their ranks. But the sheer craziness the Doom Patrol will bring into their lives just might make that it the last time... and the Legion's mission will lead to some rather unexpected consequences next issue!

    Are you a long time reader who enjoys continuity but isn’t bound to it? Do you like corny costumes and self-referential humor? Obscure characters and old favorites? Big action and dire stakes? Awesome artwork? The Brave and the Bold is the book for you. As always, I’m looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 2, 2010

    The Brave and The Bold #34 takes two concepts that are pretty much polar opposites and puts them together smoothly and without fuss, earning an impressive 4 out of 5 stars overall. This series is designed to showcase whatever the heck J. Mike wants to come up with in his new exclusive playground, and Im very impressed with the results here Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips May 26, 2010

    So in the end, what we have here is a stand-alone adventure that doesn't stand on its own very well due to how little it says about its characters or the story's subject matter, and the first part of a two-part tale that doesn't do much of a job setting up part two. Doesn't sound like much, does it? Luckily, JMS is good enough to make the issue work surprisingly well despite its fundamental flaws. At the very least, it's fun to watch JMS play these characters off each other in a story that takes an unexpectedly grounded take on over-the-top sci-fi. Read Full Review

    Straczynski continues to find fun combinations in the DC Universe sandbox, but I'd like to see more memorable moments. As an escape, or refresher from continuity and unnecessary sensationalism, this comic has consistently delivered. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman May 26, 2010

    Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood, but I wasn't feeling the retro romp this issue is supposed to be. JMS and Saiz have done much better work, but it seems like they were phoning it in, here. This does feel like a Silver Age comic, but more like the kind that would be goofed on in some snarky column. Read Full Review
