    With many shocking moments its hard to write a spoiler free review. However, I can say that this issue was one of the best of the series thus far. It appears that FUTURES END is starting to remove itself from the predictable ways of the past and latching itself onto a new direction that includes a fast pace and fresh ideas. Fans who have stopped reading the series will definitely want to start reading again. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 3, 2014

    While the reveals aren't exactly as mind blowing as the previous weeks, this certainly is a must have issue for the series.  It seems that Futures End's stingy ways have ended, because this has become the book that keeps on giving.  I'm really digging the direction that we're heading and I hope that it doesn't have a relapse and keeps up the pace of giving us everything we've asked for since the series began.  Very cool issue.

    The New 52: Futures End #18 is another solid addition in a line of comics that have made use of their wide narrative potential. There was a twist that was expected, but without spoiling it, I can say I'm happy we all saw it coming as this indeed comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Hopefully we have reached a turning point with Future's End. The plot has finally started to roll as things heat up in multiple story threads. If this continues, then Future's End will finally be the book I was promised those many months ago. Please don't let me down. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Sep 4, 2014

    This week we once again leap from story to story, leaving out a few to look at a few more. The inclusion of McGinnis/Batman again was a welcome one, though brief, but shows us hes still pushing along on his mission. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Sep 4, 2014

    There are a couple good nuggets in this issue but nothing to go wet your pants over. The plot is continually getting thicker with each issue, though I wish it would happen quicker. This being the start ofFutures Endmonth, I thought this would have been a better comic but I can't complain when I look at the series as a whole. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 5, 2014

    "Futures End" #18 is a decent offering for a series that has had as many downs as ups. This issue, however, checks in across the Earth of the DC Universe and gives readers some notable surprises. The cliffhanger installment of this issue checks back in with Terry McGinnis and crew, but the most interesting bits happen much earlier in this comic book. Azzarello, Giffen, Jurgens and Lemire have this series on track once more, with a little extra suspense thrown in. From here, the creative team needs to do more than simply get back on track. They need to start rolling down that track and picking up speed. Read Full Review
