    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jun 25, 2014

    The ending makes it quite clear that things are about to get worse for everyone involved, no mistakes and I'm most definitely along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Jun 25, 2014

    Futures End is slowly pulling away from the station. As the story progresses it will be harder and harder to jump on. So if you’re still on the fence about whether or not to read along let me help you make that decision: do it. Grab the rest of the issues and catch up. This is going to be the blockbuster hit of the summer. You can bet on that. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Gregg Hamm Jun 26, 2014

    Overall this was a good issue. We're now two months into the series and things are truly underway. Expect the action to ramp up as we move past introductions and towards the next part of the story. I definitely recommend this issue to anyone already enjoying these tales from the future.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 26, 2014

    New 52: Futures End #8offered intrigue, especially with the mystery surrounding a maskedSuperman, but it did fall into a few narrative pitfalls. In other words it had flaws but not enough to wholly ruin it. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Jul 4, 2014

    The series treads water here a bit. Not bad, but not much to sink ones teeth into. An inoffensive transitional issue common in weekly ongoing titles. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 25, 2014

    I swear at some point we're going to start getting some answers to all these questions we're given each week, but so far it's a no go.  I guess I should expect this from a weekly event title, but each time I read this I expect some revelation that will blow my mind.  I'm still hopeful for the mind blow, and will continue to enjoy this title for all the potential it holds, but damn is this a lot to throw at a person each issue.  It's a fine issue nonetheless, and you shouldn't miss any of this series.

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jun 26, 2014

    Once again featuring a moment where someone's arm is getting SCHLUNKED off we're given another taste of the world leading up to total chaos. Azzarello and the other writers plot a story featuring strong characters as well as a lot of side stories brewing. Each issue you don't really know who you can expect to see, but you can be sure something entertaining will come about. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 1, 2014

    As always, you're left wondering if the issue is worth its cover price. For my part, it's not. Dropped. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Jul 2, 2014

    Futures End #8 is just an "okay" chapter of the series. As mentioned before, there's sure to be some payoff in later issues, but unless there's more than just omens of a bleak future and groundwork, the readership of this series is going to drop off fast. DC is asking a lot of it's audience to buy an issue every week, only to deliver medium-quality work. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Jun 25, 2014

    There isn't much going on this issue. I'm struggling to keep justify buying each issue. The problem with so many narratives in a 20 page comic is that nothing gets the attention it needs. Any issue of Batman: Black and White is so much more interesting than this; but that series isn't limited to telling one cohesive story. It's a trade off. Then again buying a comic is a trade off: my money for that comic. So unless you've got to see it for yourself (and I'm kinda one of those) you could pass on this issue. Read Full Review
