Review: This concept of this comic is so cool. It remind me of a kid playing with all the toys in their toybox, not caring what properties they come from. It's the ultimate cross-over event. Many of these shows were on Cartoon Network as a kid. I was really into the 90s version of Johny Quest. 

Because there are so many different properties in this comic, it drags as new characters are introduced. I wasn't familiar with some of the properties so I didn't know what was references and what was original. From the properties I did know, I liked how they were modernized. 

I give this comic a 3/5. I really liked the concept, but it dragged and had too much going on. I would love a modern take on Johny Quest by himself.
