New 52: Futures End #10

"New 52: Futures End" #10 is a title that's leveled out since those early issues, and while the future is still bleak, at least now there's some hope mixed in.

Aquaman and the Others #4

"Aquaman and the Others" #4 is an example of a perfectly competent comic, but one that doesn't present a compelling enough plot -- or in this case, a central idea -- to become a must-read.

New 52: Futures End #7

Futures End #2

Hopefully "Futures End" #2 shows us a timeline slated for destruction, because Azzarello, Lemire, Jurgens, Giffen, and Merino are doing a good job in making readers dislike the future of the DC Universe.

Futures End #1

"Future's End" #1 is a somewhat bland and derivative take on the idea of a dark future, but a team of DC's most notable writers squeeze out a mildly interesting story that's impressively illustrated by Patrick Zircher.

Action Comics Annual #2

"Action Comics Annual" #2 by Scott Lobdell, Kenneth Rocafort and Dan Jurgens is enjoyable enough for attention to the fundamentals of comic storytelling, but the intriguing and nice looking story isn't bad, either.
