It attempted to bring in all of DC future science/space characters, many originally from the 1950s and 1960s, into one series (despite the fact that many occurred in different time periods). It was another radical revamp of DC characters, including Tommy Tomorrow, Star Rovers, Star Hawkins, Space Ranger, Manhunter 2070 and Space Cabbie. Tommy Tomorrow is presented as an unbalanced individual who ran the Planeteers very autocratically, using them against his enemies, such as their rivals, the Knights of the Galaxy.
Timothy Callahan has looked again at the series with over one and a half decades worth of hindsight, and suggests that it is more than a simple post-Watchmen, postmodern reimagining and deconstruction of early comic book characters:
“Twilight is an exceptionally ambitious DC comic book story, done with flair, and a precise attention to detail. It doesn't feel like the work of someone who was out to cynically deconstruct these characters, even if that's what ends up happening. It's perhaps best termed as an affectionate deconstruction, done with a razor sharp edge."
Chaykin's writing is complimented by the art, and Callahan suspects that "Garcia-Lopez was never able to create such a vivid comic book world as he did in Twilight" and that "his penciling and inking in Twilight is gorgeous. Gritty, sometimes grim, but always gorgeous." Callahan concludes that Twlight is "not as cheaply cynical as so many products of the post-Watchmen era, and it works particularly well as a cohesive whole -- as a radically reimagined vision of the future, informed by the works of the past."
