    The events of this book become even more salient as we approach the next major DC event of Convergence in April, with the perpetual hints that all of this may be heading towards a 'Crisis' by any other name. It still remains unclear exactly how this possible future will play into the current continuity, or what role these events will have pre and post event, but DC has made it clear that this is core reading to fully understand the direction the line is taking. It's a good thing that it remains compelling every week. Read Full Review

    This was an issue full of first encounters (Batman meet Batman, Batman meet Bat..uhh…Joker?) while also wrapping up a few ongoing threats (just let him use the transporters!). Read Full Review

    Well I'm glad everyone believes him about being from the future. To be fair, time travel is pretty much a proven thing after all. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Jan 28, 2015

    For a company with the reputation for despising marriage, DC has a strong fascination with families. The family units in question are not usually biologically determined, but rather what are known in modern social jargon as “families of choice,” although often the choices seem predetermined and problematic. These groups provide the building blocks of the DC Universe's heroic infrastructure. The Bat Family, the Superman Family, the Arrow Family, and the like spread out like roots from the Justice Leagues that sit at the apex of the super hero hierarchy. Read Full Review

    Futures End at this point is becoming harder and harder to read because every week you go into this thing and all you do is hope that something happens and every week the issue just comes off as set up.  This week though feels like a bit of a slap to the face because the solicit hyped this up to be the big confrontation between the Batmen and again all we got was the start of something that never wants to finish.  I really hope that Futures End finishes strong because as of right now it seems that the best parts of this story ended months ago.

    The creators behind this series are capable of so much better than Future's End #38. And knowing that makes it all the more difficult to reconcile its quality. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Jan 22, 2015

    Unless you need every issue, are exceedingly rich, or are a close relative to someone on the creative team, I think you should pass on this issue. It's not worth $2.99 in my book. Read Full Review

    Futures End, as a whole, has been a lackluster entry in the history of DC's attempts at a weekly series. Blame it on the inconsistent quality of the artists, the uneven pacing between exposition and climax, or just the general ambiguity of the title and where it wants to go. Read Full Review
