    To be honest, Convergence: Justice League of America was the title going into this week I had the biggest doubts about. Could any creative team treat these characters with respect, knowing quite frankly most fans wouldnt? I clearly had nothing to worry about. Providing the book of the week in my estimation, Nicieza and company have done this team proud and given us a true representation of what it means to be a Justice League after all. I could read about their exploits for years if given the chance. Heres hoping I am. Read Full Review

    It's pretty rare to see ChrisCross tackle a new DC project, so his art is also a selling point in this issue. Between his bold, detailed figures and dynamic angles, he brings a very slick look to this series. The fight scene with the Secret Six really pops. And unlike Carlos D'Anda's work in Batman and the Outsiders, it's not a style that works against the retro throwback era. That said, some of ChrisCross' facial work can get pretty wonky, especially when the use of photo-reference becomes more noticeable. Zatanna's "I just swallowed a lemon" face is an especially blatant example. Read Full Review

    While many of the Convergence books have been vastly uneven, I have to say, Convergence: Justice League of America might be one of the best issues they've put out in this event. There's a lot of great pacing, some endearing characters, and a sense of lightness and excitement to go along with all the polish of modern-day execution. The Justice League Detroit might not have gotten a lot of respect the past few decades, but this is one event comic where they - and the creators behind them - have truly tapped their vast potential.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 24, 2015

    Right off the bat you know you're going to have a good time because this book features the ragtag team of Justice League Detroit and that idea alone just tickles me......... Oh yeah, it tickles me.  Not only that but the art team's names are ChrisCross and Snakebite.......... Yeah, that's a bad ass art team right there!  Seriously though, this issue let's you know what's been going down with all the characters of the team and even gives you a little insight on the characters they'll be fighting and that might not sound like much, but it's more than we get from a lot of other Convergence titles.  This is definitely a book you should be picking up and I don't think anyone will regret it.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Apr 29, 2015

    Self-awareness is one of the greatest of human weaknesses. That's right, self-awareness, so beloved by pop psychologists and faux-gurus, is in fact a flaw. It is a kind of narcissism, a dwelling on one's own characteristics and being. That's bad enough, but where it leads is even worse. For the truly self-aware, the denial ofimperfectioncan becomearrogance and, eventually, dictatorial evil. Or, inversely, the true acceptance ofsins becomes depression and denial of worth, a wallowing in shortcomings that leads through self-pity to bitterness and despair and, finally, evil by another route.

    Another book where not much goes on, and some occasionally wild, out there art, but overall a pleasant read. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Apr 25, 2015

    Yet another Convergence issue that ends with our heroes truly about to skirmish. It won't be until next month that we'll know where this event is really going. It's fun for what it is getting characters off the bench in a way but I'm not going to be happy if they're then slaughtered. Hopefully with Justice League of America we'll be rewarded with a bombastic showdown between this motley team versus that of Tangent. Read Full Review

    "Convergence: Justice League of America" #1 isn't the worst of the tie-ins published so far, but that's not saying much. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Oscar Bergeron-Oakes Apr 24, 2015

    This is a comic. It happened. Most important, it will get a sequel of sorts as Convergence rolls on into May. The book is average at best, and one can only hope that we get to know our characters a little better in next month's issue. If not, maybe we can get some real action sequences. As long as Ralph and Sue are involved, there's hope for the future.SCORE: 5/10 Read Full Review

    For fans of the era of JLA, you may enjoy the book. For me, things like the cities used are mainly Gorham and Metropolis, it was Detroit JLA for a reason, are giving me temporal headaches or chronological apathy. Read Full Review
