    All in all this was an okay read. This is mostly aimed at Earth 2 fans since Power Girl and Huntress are coming back to the series in August and Worlds' Finest #25 will feel like a prelude to a tie-in adventure. Which wouldn't be so bad since Earth 2 is doing a good job in their series so far. I highly suggest buying Worlds' Finest #25 in case your a reader who's looking for a little more detail in how Power Girl and Huntress suddenly show up in Earth 2 #26. Worlds' Finest does leaves readers in suspense in what they're reacting to now that they're back on Earth 2. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 16, 2014

    Maybe I have been too hard on this book, on Levitz and his characterization, on the lack of progression on the book, on the rough art that has been on the pages for a while. Maybe it is because I love the characters so much I wanted so much more. But I don't think I will miss this book once it isn't on my pull list. And I never thought I would say that about a Power Girl or a Huntress book. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 15, 2014

    With at least the next several issues taking place on their hellish homeworld which has fallen to Apokolips and an evil Superman, Worlds' Finest #25 plays to the series strengths by centering the storyline on the friendship and interaction of our two heroines. The issue works well and even an appearance of the New 52 version of Desaad (adding a bit of action to the proceedings) can't ruin what works as a bittersweet portend that perhaps the series' best issues may now have already been told. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Jul 12, 2014

    Tyler Kirkham's art is a strange choice for an otherwise forgettable issue, but a welcome kind of strange. He adds a bit of mangaesque quality to a run-of-the-mill displaced heroes going home tale. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jason Inman Jul 14, 2014

    I'll miss that Helena and Kara will no longer be the Worlds' Finest team. I'm excited for their conclusion in the Earth 2 book, but thought it was a great idea that DC had a powerful book starring two kick ass women. Which is something that not many comic book companies can say out there. Goodbye Power Girl and Huntress from Earth Prime, and welcome home. Read Full Review

    Every month that I read an issue of Worlds' Finest I'm surprised that their doesn't seem to be any meat to the book at all.  It has the strange ability to begin and end without anything really happening in the middle and I hope with the upcoming change to the book that we'll finally have something for these two to show some real superheroics instead of fumbling around and seeming to just simply go through the motions.  Even after all my bitching the book isn't that bad except for the constant over sexualizing of the characters that has run rampant from the titles start.  We have the excellent artwork of Tyler Kirkham and I hope he stays on for awhile because I just love looking at characters through his pencils.  I can't say that I recommend this book, but it is a farewell to the status quo of Worlds' Finest and for that it may be the best issue yet.

    Well the status quo of the book is about to undergo a major shift. Of course, Power Girl and Huntress are about to go one of the few places even darker than the DCNU's main Earth right now. I wonder if they'll be happy to get home when they see what's happened? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Jul 10, 2014

    Improved artwork and great character design are held back by a meandering story and shallow heroes. Things look like they will spiral towards heavy action, as the issue's conclusion gives readers a taste of just how bad the situation on Earth 2 is. Read Full Review
