    We got some answers *Doing a little dance here*  We got some answers!  I'm really happy with this week's issue of Futures End, but I'm really not sure if it's because it was a good issue, or that I was strung along for so long that now that I'm given some exquisite answers, that I feel the need to stroke this comic.  It could go either way, but if you've been feeling suckered by this series for the last couple of weeks, then I guess you can have the same tear inducing experience I had.  Yeah that's a bit exaggerated, but the important thing is, we got some answers *Doing a little dance again here* We got some answers!

    The Latest Pull - Eric Tillirson Aug 24, 2014

    The tension building this week goes a long way to revitalize my interest in the series. It was really rewarding to see the story tie two plots, that I previously presumed were unrelated, together with an actual threat. One week left until September. I think we'll get the penultimate issue of Futures End that will truly blow the series wide open and make this the fun read I know it has the potential to be. Read Full Review

    Jesus Merino handles the artwork here, and his opening Stormguard pages feature some of the best art that this series as had so far. The design for Stormguard is already striking, but Merino truly helps to deliver his character with his classic superhero stylings. Beyond that, the rest of issue benefits just as much with clear action and easy to follow layouts. Read Full Review

    It's an issue that actually provides some answers. Some of the sections actually seem like they belong in the same comic together, while others are just forgettable. It's easy to be a bright candle when the room is really, really dark. This issue shines in the darkness that has beenFutures End. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Aug 21, 2014

    Futures End is the book I really want to like. The first few issues quickly grabbed my attention, but now Im finding I care less and less about the series. This weeks issue gives me hope that things are about to pick up, but unfortunately this series has gotten my hopes up before. Is this weeks excitement the beginning of something bigger or is it just another let down in the making? Only time will tell I suppose, but hopefully its the former since this series is rapidly approaching the half way mark. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 26, 2014

    All in all, The New 52: Futures End #16 ends up being a somewhat confusing and really trying reading experience, without much in the way of payoff. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 22, 2014

    Rounding out the underwhelming adventure in "New 52: Futures End" #16 is the full-fledged debut of Stormguard, quite possibly the lamest hero name in comics today. Luckily he left the weather-stripping out of his utility belt, so the writers are able to give him some character development, but with a rejected 1990s name, the character has a steep hill to climb to gain fan's attention. It's a weird addition to the menagerie of tales going on in this series at an even weirder juncture, as things seem to be finally starting to come together. Hopefully things pick up now that the story arcs are beginning to point towards an intersection. Read Full Review
