    What does a memory look like? Not what is the experience of a memory. Not what is it like to have a memory. What is the physical reality of a memory? What is the actual manifestation of the past in the corner of space and time that we inhabit? In the world of The New 52: Futures End, memory exists as faceted crystals inside the mechanical mind of Braniac's enormous, space-bound avatar. The heart of the issue consists of Ray Palmer, the Atom, infiltrating the Braniac-ship in a bid to find and save Angie, the Stormwatch engineer, who has been absorbed into the entity's fabric. His adventure plays out against the background of flickering images from the multiple histories of the DCU, like a play staged in God's private cinema. Read Full Review

    This issue raises many questions about what's been going on in Futures End and what enemy we should really be worried about.  While the art isn't as strong as it's been from this artist in previous issues of this title, the story still shines and all the surprises and reveals will be enough to make you happy as hell that you are still reading Futures End.  The hype machine is running on high as this series creeps to a close.
