    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 9, 2010

    There's some minor issues with the ending that prevent me from outright proclaiming this a perfect issue, but Doomwar entertained and is the early favourite for best event of the year. It was epic in scope, self contained, filled with great character moments, and every issue delivered in spades. No decompression, no filler or fluffing up of the story for the trade just a well written and drawn comic that's been criminally ignored by the majority of comic fans. Read Full Review

    The artwork was good of course with a team thats quite used to working with these characters. It seemed less dark than previous issues. Its not an impressive issue either which means that this comic book will not have that much resonance or influence in a few years. Thats a bummer because there was so much great potential when it started. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 4, 2010

    DoomWar has been a nice treat for those Black Panther fans bored by years of lackluster storytelling. The series begins to fray at the edges in this final issue, but DoomWar still manages a decent finish. Jonathan Maberry certainly provides a mighty challenge for his two Panther heroes to overcome. My fears that the story lacked the legs to last for six issues have been assuaged. The problem is one that might be familiar to Panther readers - they overcome it a little too easily in the end. For all the massive buildup to the final battle between Doom and T'Challa, the whole thing fades away surprisingly quietly. That's not to say the series doesn't offer plenty of potential for future stories. Just don't expect this issue to devote more than a single page to the fight's aftermath. Also disappointing is how underutilized many of the guest stars were in the end. I nearly forgot the X-Men were a part of this story at times, and even Deadpool essentially keeps the bench warm in this issue. Read Full Review

    I'm curious to see where Marvel goes from here as they left this story wide open, which is quite surprising considering the blatant plot device used to end the war. Read Full Review
