The art in this comic is dynamite! However, overall, I think this comic is average or slightly above average. I LOVE these characters and seeing them in action. Parker wrote a magnificent initial volume of Future Quest and this picks up where that series ended. This issue did not grab me as much as the issues in the initial series but I'm definitely along for the ride and I'm sure Parker will pick more

Tom King delivers an amazing story filled with twists, turns and moral quandaries. What more could you ask for? This book centers around a band of characters I didn't know or care about (even Kyle Rayner). By the end I cared. Kyle has one of the most badass moments in comics. Seriously if you want a well written story with oodles of symbolism and inner turmoil go out and buy this.

This is just getting more confusing. I'm going to keep going to see if it pays off. It could be a really awesome payoff to make this a great series or it could end up being a big ball of Meh.

If you're into horror comics, you'd likely like this more than myself. I thought the story was compelling enough that I may get the second issue. The story telling was well done.

Wonderful story and the history of the series keeps getting uniquely woven into the story in unexpected ways. It serves the nostalgia kick as well as making great analogies to problems we have today and philosophical issues.

This series has taken a turn that I find uninteresting as it focus' more on Emiko. If someone is into that character I'm sure this was much more interesting.
