    Comic Crusaders - Robert Anderegg Apr 21, 2016

    What I love about Huck is the lack of "superheroness", despite containing many of the classic elements, and the thing is, I love superhero comics. Huck is just a normal guy with a passion for helping others and the unusual capabilities to do so. After political influence, media coverage, and the threatening of loved ones, he still feels no need to don a cape and spandex. If you have followed the book up to this point, then you probably already expect this final issue to be great and you'll pick it up. However, if you have yet to experience Huck, do yourself a favor and wait for the trade or stock up on the back issues. Reading the story in its entirety is well worth it for context. Either way, Huck is a must have. Read Full Review

    Huck #6 brings this sensational tale to a close, with the series as a whole being one of the best Millarworld has produced so far. Between the charming epilogue, the explosive action, and the tense dialogue, the creative team gave us a memorable final issue, leaving me hopeful that a second volume will follow sooner rather than later.

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Apr 22, 2016

    All in all, this is one of my favorite mini-series in quite some time, and this last issue tied up the loose ends nicely. If you are looking for a great, feel good book, then Huck is right for you. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Marvin Salguero Apr 27, 2016

    Huck wraps up nicely in this issue. While the action segments of this story will never be as good as just seeing Huck be a nice guy, they work in their own way. Mark Millar is really having a creative renaissance with his work lately and Huck is no exception. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Apr 20, 2016

    Huck#6 boasts rich, textured art and colors from Rafael Albuquerque and Dave McCaig and will probably make you smile. (Unless you're an incurable cynic.) It is up there withStarlightas Mark Millar's best work in his post-Marvel era, and I look forward to the day it's made into a film starring Channing Tatum. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Fred B May 10, 2016

    There is not much different to say about this book that I have not said before, which is refreshing compared to the constant shifts from the comics in the Big Two. Given that this book is going to be collected it will be well worth the price to be able to read it in one go. It is a book that is highly recommendable, and also good for new readers. While it has a few flaws Huck #6 and Huck as a whole is a wonderful read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Russ Dobler Apr 21, 2016

    Huck #6 is like the climax of a movie adapted to a comic book series. It's pop media in reverse! If you can get past that head-trip, there's still a good story here, with likeable characters(!) and truth and justice triumphing in the end; a deconstruction of the modern meta that totally goes against type for Mark Millar. So all at once it's neat, tidy, expected, and completely incongruous. It's making a statement while hedging its bets. Huck #6 is a unique animal in the year 2016, but it might be one a lot of comics readers aren't hunting for. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Dana Anderson Apr 24, 2016

    After finishing Huck I soon found out that the series is going to be adapted into a film in the future, like many of Millars comics. Of course the happy, sweet and super tidy ending now makes perfect sense. The hero wins. And all that he cares for is safe, protected and happy. Everything has gone back to the way it was, with some small changes and additions to Hucks life. Huck and his mother lived happily ever after. The end. Read Full Review

    Im glad I got to know Huck and look forward to welcoming the big guy back. I just wish he had gone out with more of a bang than a whimper. But hey, maybe thats just his style. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Apr 21, 2016

    Rafael Albuquerque is the main draw (as he's been all series) and this issue is even more beautifully and dynamically illustrated than the last five, but there are some key stumbles in the script that fundamentally undermine what the story is trying to accomplish. Read Full Review
