    So no complaints here. I thought this was a good issue. As I said before, it is the complexity of the characters that I enjoy the most. There are almost contradictory elements in both Huntress' and Power Girl's personalities here just bubbling under the surface. And as I said, the art was very good throughout. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was actually a pretty good issue. It presents some solid character interaction, pretty and stylized art, and a story hat leaves readers excited to see what will happen next. It builds off a story that we have been seeing all along, but manages to also be accessible to new readers. Read Full Review

    Levitz offers what feels like a teaser for what's to come. While it's an amusing teaser, I can't say it justifies the price of the comic. Within the context of a trade paperback, this instalment may fare better. Read Full Review

    They did finally put Power Girl back in her traditional costume - but that's just a baby step. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 7, 2013

    This is definitely more of Power Girl issue than a Huntress one, but we do get flashbacks of Helena kicking some serious ass and some strong character moments discussing Power Girl's need for a celebrity persona and the Huntress comforting her friend from the latest devastating Apokolips attack. For fans. Read Full Review

    I really want to like this comic, but it gets harder every month. Also, the boob window is back. Which is all I will say, because it's all the explanation we readers got. Deal with it. I guess. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy May 2, 2013

    I really cannot give this book more than a 2.5. Why even that? The story has a lot of potential and it was nice to see some IMMEDIATE continuity with other books here. The artwork is good, but not when they pair off after a handful of pages each – it was not worth it. Had this issue been all Maguire, then another issue one of the other artists, I don't think it would take away from the quality of the issue as a standalone one (which I am trying to do more of and not worry about other things). But I found it distracting, mostly because the shift away from Maguire was easily noticeable. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole May 2, 2013

    Worlds Finest is becoming a chore to read. It no longer has any of the spark it started with and Levitz doesn't seem bothered with delivering interesting stories for these two characters to have. The whole Apokolips angle isn't really working and the title needs to move forward. At the moment the title is wasting these two characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 3, 2013

    "Worlds' Finest" #12 is the latest installment for a title that simply seems to have lost its way. As James Robinson's "Earth 2" finds its ground and blossoms, "Worlds' Finest" seems to wither on the vine. A single quest has dragged this book along for a year, now a new quest arises. There is a parallel between this book and Robinson's in that both books now prominently feature a member of the Fourth World pantheon, but Levitz has failed to add depth to the maniacal workings of Desaad. At this point, I'd almost rather see this book cease on its own and the adventures of Power Girl and Huntress be relegated to the backup of "Earth 2," as the stories seem destined to connect, but "Worlds' Finest" doesn't offer enough pizzazz on its own.
