    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Dec 4, 2014

    Overall this a was a good issue but not a great one. There was some action, but maybe not enough to keep every reader's attention. The dialogue and art were on point this week as well, and helped move the story along, albeit in a calmer fashion. Fans of the series will definitely not be disappointed by this one though they wont be as excited as they were last week either. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 3, 2014

    Since we had those two big endings over the past two weeks, we actually have a bit of a lull here and while that might sound boring, it was really satisfying to read and to see our heroes get a chance to relax and the villains get what's coming to them.  We're back to jumping around to different stories and I think that the straight forward story telling over the past two weeks have spoiled me because now that's all I want for this title and found myself annoyed every time the story would go somewhere else.  I guess I'll just have to get used to it again and for the most part I'm cool with that because the majority of the stories told here I really liked.  Go check it out and continue your foray into the future.

    Outright Geekery - Adam Normal Dec 9, 2014

    All of these various stories seem so far apart I really don't see how the writers will make it all come together and not make it all feel shoehorned together. Still, this was a solid issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Dec 4, 2014

    This week returns to the mini-story style that has become the norm for these stories. Some of the stories are a bit stronger than others, but all together nice to see some characters we havent seen in a while make a return. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Dec 5, 2014

    As with so much of this series, the current issue has some interesting ideas and even some narrative promise. However, poor organization, failure to cohere storylines, and just plain over-reliance on what are rapidly becoming very bad clichs in the DC Universe spoil the effect. One gets the sense of a book written by a committee rather than a team. It's a good committee. It's a talented committee. But no committee has written anything well since the King James Bible, and this shows no signs of breaking that tradition. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Dec 4, 2014

    It's back to form for the series with this issue. Nothing too grand. Nothing too above average. It's kind of nice having the multiple story lines back in this issue. I guess it's like having a bunch of friends with no real close ones. When you get inevitably bored with one, another comes along. Except in this case, one of them is a big blue bear that goes boom.
