    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson Jun 18, 2014

    This issue is one of the stronger parts of the series so far, meaning that this book is just getting better and better. If you haven't been picking up this book yet, do yourself a favor and run to your local comic store and do so. The art and the writing on this series has been fantastic and every issue just leaves me wanting more, but in a good way. I just hope the writers can keep up the good work. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jun 12, 2014

    As quick as the pacing of this weekly series is, I kind of wish that things were even faster. But then I suppose, I'd have to wait a few weeks and then just read the series in big chunks. But can't do that since I want to stay current, so that's that. This is definitely one of my favourite new series of 2014, by a good margin. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 11, 2014

    I was a bit let down and in turn a bit harsh on last week's Futures End, but all that changes here because man I enjoyed this issue.  The anticipation for wild shit to go down is killing me because it could happen at any moment, and I know it's going to catch me off guard.  Stop tormenting me DC!  Anyway I'm sweet on this series and have nothing bad to say about it this week, and guess what kids Patty Z is on art so WOO!  Yeah I call Patrick Zircher Patty Z, what of it?  While it's not a action packed thrill ride it will keep you deeply entertained and engrossed in the world of Five Years From Now.  So go check it out.  Why haven't you checked it out yet?

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 11, 2014

    New 52: Futures End #6 is the best comic yet in a title that promises excitement, suspense, death, Batman Beyond and most certainly some necessary destruction. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jun 18, 2014

    Having multiple stories, within a single issue, that don't have much to do with each other is a dangerous road to travel since it can lose reader's interest very quickly. However, this issue of FUTURES END does it extremely well, and more than anything it's entertaining story telling. Zircher's art is the star of the show here and it's great to see a high caliber artist on this book. Things are looking up for this series as things heat up and I would highly recommend folks go and pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jun 11, 2014

    Futures End #6 is the strongest chapter since the first issue in this weekly series, throwing down some information that gives the story as a whole more energy and momentum going forward. Packaging these three storylines together was a smart move by the creators and editorial, and Patrick Zircher more than held up his end of the bargain with some very strong artwork. My interest was waning but issue #6 has pulled me back in, and I'll be seeing what goes down next week in issue #7. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Jun 11, 2014

    Overall this was a good issue. The subplots moved forward nicely and it was great to see some of them begin to converge. The introduction of Superman as well as another character whose found in the Phantom Zone, act as great plot twists thatwill makeany fan of the DCU intrigued.The series continues to slowly build the world of 5 years from now from the point of views of very different characters I highly recommend this issue because it has a little something for everyone.

    Having the right kind of artist helps, but the story still feels a bit plodding. Read Full Review

    IGN - Brian Salvatore Jun 20, 2014

    This issue is great in spots, and can be a bit frustrating elsewhere, but that is sort of the deal with a sprawling story from many creators. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Jun 25, 2014

    It's picked up the pace over the last issue. Intriguing pieces of the puzzle are being put together for the reader's enjoyment. Artwork is solid overall. This is chapter you could get by without having read, but I doubt you'd want to skip it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 13, 2014

    Not bad, Futures End, not bad. By focusing on some of the more interesting subplots going on in this series, the Futures End collective (Brian Azzarello, Jeff Lemire, Dan Jurgens and Keith Giffen) are building up a head of steam, aided by some extremely solid pencils by Patrick Zircher.

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jun 11, 2014

    Worth a mention is the cover art to this issue, done by Ryan Sook. He sets the reader up for Drake/Red Robins scene playing off the news story that followed his death. In blue an image of the reporter out to uncover the story looks back to a dark image following her. Below we see fingers typing up the story and the words appearing over the images spliced together perfectly. Read Full Review
