    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Dec 16, 2015

    The Verdict:One of the best comics I have ever read. Van Lente takes the normal and mundae and rebuild it into something that is both fantastically sci-fi and drama with ease. Perez and Dalhouse present some of their great arc. And the ending was just so compelling. This is what comics should aspire to be. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Dec 24, 2015

    Ivar, Timewalker 12 caps off what I think is a damn-near perfect twelve issue run. Fred Van Lente, Pere Prez and Andrew Dalhouse have crafted an intricate, complex plot that on the surface looks simple and natural. They've also created a vibrant, exciting, and engaging world of time travel, alternate universes, and radical, high concept science. Yet it's all anchored by believable and sympathetic characters with real emotions and clear psychologies. I swear, I look for things to nitpick in this comic, but damned if I can't find anything. If you love time travel stories with loads of wit, humor, and honest human warmth, this is for you. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jesse Izdepski Dec 16, 2015

    If you do one more thing in 2015, it should be readingIvar, Timewalker#1 through #12. It's the sort of book that only comes around every couple of years, and is in itself an event that should NOT be missed. Read Full Review

    Ivar, Timewalker #12 is an exciting conclusion to the series and successfully wraps up just about everything introduced in these 12 issues. I like how it's true to its handling of time travel throughout, and as a result creates a great addition to the overall Valiant Universe going forward. The Prometheans don't strike me as memorable as antagonists and I still have questions about the Seven Sages but I'm satisfied with how this series ended. Now I just hope that in some ways this is just the beginning because this has been one of the more highly entertaining series this year. Read Full Review

    Ivar, Timewalker #12is a great read, but it's far from new reader friendly. As a single issue, it's good, but when read as the finale to the Ending History arc it's stunning.Do yourself a favor and read this. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Dec 16, 2015

    Without a doubt, Ivar, Timewalker has been one of the most enjoyable books being published. And so, it is with great sadness that the series' twelfth issue marks the series finale. However, the outcome " and resulting shakeup to the Valiant Universe " is an exciting proposition that hopefully other creators will take up and exploit in the future. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Ken Godberson III Dec 21, 2015

    I had hesitated to review this because of my aforementioned disdain for the similar "Hell Bent", but in the end, they may have had similarities, but "Ivar, Timewalker" did better this year than Doctor Who. It was my favorite time travel story this year and I am sad to see it go. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Alex Nader Dec 17, 2015

    IVAR, TIMEWALKER, we hardly knew ye. Well, we did, but it's still a shame to see this comic go. IVAR was a combination of the humor of ARCHER & ARMSTRONG with DOCTOR WHO and alternate universes thrown in for good measure. It was a strong comic that introduced a great character in Dr. Neela Sethi (who we will hopefully be seeing again) and built on Ivar and Neela's tragic love story while giving the readers over-the-top sci-fi action and the kind of insane concepts only possible in comics. This issue, the series' last, ties up most of the hanging threads, though I think it does so a bit hastily. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Dec 22, 2015

    By the end of the book, as the solicits stated, we do in fact have a new timewalker. Is this person as charismatic as Ivar? Absolutely not. But the last page shows us exactly what this series has always shown: for Ivar, life is not fair- it is one tragic choice after another, as he is literally cursed. This tragic side to the character once again cements Ivars place in the Valiant Universe. This was a great send off for the series, and I hope we see more Timewalker action in the near future.
