    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw Oct 3, 2018

    Well, The Unexpected keeps rolling on. There are revelations in this issue which are probably meant to be exciting and dramatic but feel flat and uninteresting, perhaps because what's at stake is never really clear and seems to be far too abstract for me to care about. To be fair, this issue's cliffhanger might change that and if it does I'll be pleased. This fifth issue sees the fourth penciller to grace the title which is as clear an indication as one could wish for that DC doesn't really care about it. I'm afraid I really can't bring myself to be upset about that. Read Full Review

    Like so many of the New Age of Heroes titles, The Unexpected has somehow forgot to craft a story worth telling. Read Full Review
