    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 2, 2018

    It is quite sad to see another book like this reach its ending, but the finale was beautiful nonetheless. With a deceptively simple plot, an optimistic finale, and good, if conflicting, art styles throughout, this ending earns a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    I'm really bummed to see this series go, but at least it's going out with a big cosmic bang. Read Full Review

    From the characters, background, and dialogue, this creative team has served America Chavez well for her final issue. Who knows when we'll next see Marvel's boss ass bae. What we do know is that this isn't how the story ends for ya girl. Read Full Review

    If America #12 is somehow a reflection of Marvel's flaws, it's in Marvel's assumption that a comic book is the only way to bring new writers on-board. America #12 may not end on the best note, but Rivera still brings such charm and passion to America that it would still be great to see her given another shot in a YA novel or even a graphic novel in the future.

    Hola, mi gente! I had to come in and review the final issue!

    Planet Stronk is under assault by La Legion, which is spanish for The Legion! (What a boring name!) -- and of course America decides to try something dangerous (not just for her) to fight them off (Is Gabby aware of the term Unintentionally Unsympathetic?)

    So, America wants to power up by leeching some energy from this semi-sentient crystal that came out of Planet Stronk's butthole... and she let La Legion towards the crystal, and now is upset la Legion is trying to leech the crystal... idiota! Also, Gabby's spanglish continues to be terrible.

    It's actually hilarious that the redhead fuertona can't handle how much of a Mary Sue America actually is -- also Grandma named her wolves after film directors, but one of them is spaniard, not latinamerican (failsauce!) -- furthermore, any self-respecting abuela would hit you with a chancla if you called her vieja... and America, can you stop flirting with every lesbian ever?

    At least, America somehow manages to solve a problem without punching, so character development? Although it begs the question why America is able to take a diplomatic route with chupacabra aliens, but her first instinct is to punch whites? (oh yeah, its written by Gabby).

    Stacey Lee's art is good for the most part, but boy, the writing... it's what brought down the whole series... The ideas in the series as a whole were not bad tbh, but the scripting and dialogue were very weak.

    In any case...
