    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 28, 2014

    Cully Hamner is the artist here, with Hi-Fi on colours and Ryan Sook on cover as usual while it is Taylor Esposito's turn this time on the letters. I don't think Cully has done an issue of the series before (I could be wrong) but I have to say that his art totally fits the bill here. His aged Green Arrow is fantastic. His Big Barda is fantastic. His Red Arrow is amazing. And so on. He even gets the chance to draw a lot of the prominent heroes fromEarth 2, giving me an even bigger kick of nostalgia than I'd thought I'd get! So many characters, and his style fits them all. The same can be said of Hi-Fi as well, but by now that man has already done twenty issues of the series and is an old pro at this by now, so no complaints there. Read Full Review

    This is a different issue then we've seen before. It's one huge exposition that reads less like a boring explanation and more like a tale that your grandfather might relay about his experience in the past. If you have any concern about what's been going on with Earth 2 andFutures End,then pick this issue up. It's satisfying. And I'm pumped about the battle(s) to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 24, 2014

    While I enjoyed the straight forward narrative here, I feel that it just conveyed a lot of information that we've already pieced together from character's brief musings on the subject throughout the series.  Now obviously there was some new stuff here, but it felt forced and even the characters objected to it because it's information that they already knew and it came across feeling really odd and made you wish that you just put the rest of the story together through piecemeal like we've already been doing.  But for all my bitching, the issue looked great and didn't diminish my interest in the title, so at least it wasn't more questions and is there for everyone that hasn't been paying close attention to the story so far.

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Sep 25, 2014

    This week served to give us more insight into how the Earth 2 heroes came to be here as well as remind us how angry Barda gets when she has to be patient. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Sep 25, 2014

    While I really wanted to like this issue I did not. While the cover makes the issue appear exciting, its actually quite boring and predictable. Time and time again this series has had pacing issues that are latter trumped by huge reveals. Unfortunately this issue falls short by providing readers with reveals that actually dont reveal very much at all. Read Full Review
