The Scrambler has given the world one month to fix everything-or else suffer "The Great Scramble," a dastardly plot that would swap the consciousnesses of everyone on the planet. As the scramble before the scramble commences, the Wonder Twins must team up with the Justice League to put a stop to the Scrambler's plan! But an unexpected twist puts Jayna in conflict with the Justice League-will she choose the path of justice even if it means losing her best friend?

    Stephen Byrne's terrific art keeps the story moving even while there is a LOT of story and a lot of dialogue packed into only 20 pages. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jul 11, 2019

    This book was only meant to be a six issue miniseries, and this would have been the final issue. While it certainly would have worked as one, I am thrilled that the run has been extended to twelve issues, and that Zan and Jayna will be back in a couple of months for more adventures. This is an excellent series, and deserves not merely twelve issues, but an indefinite ongoing run. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jul 12, 2019

    The art by Stephen Byrne is tops. This is one of the best creative teams in comics. This is going to return in September and I can't wait. It'll be on the top of my reading like for sure. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Jul 10, 2019

    In original solicitations, this was supposed to be the final issue of the Wonder Twins miniseries. Given that the series has now been doubled, it will be interesting to see how Russell and Byrne explore the ramifications of this issues events. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Jul 14, 2019

    While I've been a bit critical of Byrne's portrayal of some classic heroes (like the big blue Boy Scout), something dawned on me this issue. Homie is extremely on point and a maven with the artistry when it comes to more detailed, up close images and characters. The long-distance shots fall a little flat for me, but the artwork and attributes that he is able to produce with large scale scenes and heroes are so aesthetically pleasing and well-done. Russell and Byrne have brought back the Wonder Twins and provided the ring slinging tag-team with a fitting ending to a wild and wacky story that parallels so many unfortunate aspects of today's society. And while this comic is definitely a vehicle used to tear apart so many ineffective policies and institutions the U.S. has in place, the jokes and comedic shots fired are never forgotten, and I truly appreciate that. The Wonder Twin powers will be activating again in September, let's hope they can keep this same energy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dispatch Jul 10, 2019

    If you've been reading WONDER TWINS so far, it's probably the best, most well written, most inventive, and probably most thought-provoking issue to date. This is not an issue to jump into the series but it should make WONDER TWINS fans happy that he's got 6 more issues to go and seems to be working towards a great mix of social commentary and Superhero story. That said, I hope that the last 6 issues will focus more on the characters, their abilities, and will pertain more to Zan and Jayna themselves. If Russell can do that moving forward, this very well could be one of the best comics he's ever written.  Read Full Review

    Wonder Twins #6 has a little bit more of a serious tone than previous issues, but still fits in some of the same humor, and the always fantastic art. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 10, 2019

    When you picked up that first issue of Wonder Twins, I don't think that you ever got the impression that we would get this deep into the meaning of justice. There's something to recognize about a story which actually embraces a real conversation about right versus wrong. It's never that clear-cut as you think it is. It only pains me that we will have to wait till September to see where this story takes the Wonder Twins next from here. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 10, 2019

    Wonder Twins started out as a lighthearted superhero satire focusing on a pair of teen interns to the Justice League, but as usually happens with Mark Russell, it turned out to have a LOT on its mind and this bittersweet final issue of the first arc, Wonder Twins #6, makes clear why it was expanded to a twelve-issue series.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 15, 2019

    I like the characters and love the art, but the story borders on self-parody rather than the surgical satire they're shooting for. Read Full Review
