Se Chaykin se distingue pelo seu estilo visual dinâmico há momentos em que o excessivo dinamismo acaba por complicar a leitura. É o caso deste Challengers of the Unknown, que até parte de premissas interessantes mas descamba no estilismo comunicativo do argumentista-ilustrador. A sua revisão a estes personagens clássicos que, volta não volta, a DC tenta ressuscitar sem grande sucesso envolve ex-assassinos programados em luta contra uma conspiração de oligarcas que já domina o mundo.

Netgalley Review.

Like how catwoman drawn a lot. Joker not as gross and discusting in this one. For the most part I am really liking the art.: Catwoman totally hot. I love her short black hair. The joker isnt as discusting in this version of events. Im giving up after 64 pages. Im bored as hell and I dont want to waste anymore reading time on this.

Ah yes! What I remember most about this book is the feeling of disappointment that wouldn't wash off, no matter how hard I scrubbed. A slight consolation for me, at least, was the fact that I'd gotten this book at a discount.

The main characters standing around persistently shooting with lots Chaykinesque sound effects (somehow moving from location to location).

Lots of action happens between the gutters.

The end.
Shannon Appelcline
Dull, characterless characters. Dull plot. An excruciatingly long setup for a story that doesn't actually occur. And, of no interest to fans of the Silver Age Challengers.
