A bad batch of mutated mushrooms sends our antiheroes on a white-knuckle trip down memory lane. Flashes of repressed recollections bubble to the surface of the Racers’ fevered brains, and these tantalizing tidbits suggest a single point of origin: a high-tech facility from hell known as the Butcher Shop! Against the advice of the omnipresent Announcer, the Racers roar towards the facility. But will they find answers…or death?

    Another superb issue, and once again, I cannot wait for the next one. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Oct 24, 2016

    Leonardo Manco's art is once again on form, and still carries a sense of fast-paced anarchic energy which has been one of the series' strengths. While the general offensiveness of this title is still there, here it seems more justified and this book definitely has its own identity. It's hard to tell if the sudden acceleration in plot is due to low sales, critical disapproval, or maybe even the title getting canceled, but the storytelling here is a real step forward.

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Oct 19, 2016

    Of the five issues, this is the weakest link. However, if I only read this one issue, I would have loved it. The problem with creating something amazing is that all of your future work will be held against what came before it. Comparing issue five to issue one feels like Closing Time in comparison to Catch-22 or Go Set a Watchman in comparison to To Kill a Mockingbird. It could be great, but it is hard to tell. I am looking forward to seeing what Pontacand team have for us next month. I hope DC gives him a double issue. There are a lot of loose ends. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Oct 20, 2016

    There doesnt seem to be any mention of issue seven anywhere on DCs website. Hopefully they just havent taken the time to update it as of yet and the series hasnt been cancelled. With all thathas been set up in this issue, issue six will show if this series will be worth checking out, or if it will crash and burn off the track. Read Full Review
