    FUTURES END #12 was upbeat and action packed. The action was balanced with some humorous dialogue that felt natural for the characters. Many plotlines contained unexpected revelations that made the series feel significant again. While there were minor art hiccups, they are completely overshadowed by the vivid and detailed work throughout the rest of the issue. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jul 24, 2014

    The pencils in this issue are by Jesus Merino, with inks by Dan Green, colours by Hi-Fi and letters by Carlos M. Mangual. I loved the artwork in this issue. It takes me back to the awesomeness of Future's End #2, which is the best issue of the series (by a small margin actually). But should I be surprised? Jess Merino did the artwork for that issue as well! Every page here was pretty damn awesome, and I loved Merino's characterwork for Voodoo, the Stormwatch-SHADE trio and for the final arc in this issue, the future arc. And not only that, but I think that the inks and colours were also best. The issue flows together very well in terms of the visuals and every page has something great to offer. Read Full Review

    This is a story that'll be worth going back, when all is said and done, to read as one giant tale. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Max Dweck Jul 24, 2014

    Overall, individual issues of Futures End are largely indistinguishable in terms of quality. You get a few of the subplots moving forward, one or two big moments to keep readers hooked, and at least one segment always feels insubstantial, doing legwork for when that particular subplot will become interesting later. It's what you generally expect a weekly comic to be. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 24, 2014

    On the whole, this isn't one of the more compelling chapters of Futures End. The opening segment featuring Frankenstein, Amethyst, and Hawkman battling robots is reasonably entertaining. It's also a rare occasion where Brian Azzarello's writing voice stands out among the crowd. But the book grows comparatively more dull as it switches to other characters and loses its sense of momentum. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 23, 2014

    Looks like we're back to the unending questions that we've been plagued with since this title started.  We were doing so well getting answers for the last couple weeks that I guess this was inevitable.  While the issue will drive you nuts wanting to know more, the other segments do a good job of giving you enough not to pull your hair out.  Really this issue is a mixed bag and the real thing that will get people to want this issue is the ending, so with that said make sure that you keep reading Futures End because I know I won't be able to stay sane without these questions answered.

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Jul 26, 2014

    Most of the issue is the typical Brian Azzarello, Keith Giffen, Jeff Lemire Dan Jurgens brand of somewhat interconnected future chaos in the DC Universe that is beyond unrecognizable, with artwork by Jesus Merino, embracing the look of an early 1980s DC Comic. Read Full Review

    Although the issue was weak overall, the last bit carries the whole issue for me. Read Full Review

    It's a step up from last week on its own merit, and that's not just me trying to convince myself I'm not throwing my money away. Really good artwork, particularly on those spread pages. The middle sections left me frustrated and it really drug down the arbitrary score, but the issue started and ended very strong. This week the series is looking better overall. Read Full Review
