    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Oct 5, 2016

    The shadowy beings that the League battles at the top of this issue bear some slight resemblance to the Anti-Monitors shadow demons. Although that might simply be because they are basically shapeless, and black in colour, so there is little to define them. But Rebirth is tugging away at my brain just enough to be looking for a connection. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Oct 7, 2016

    I am interested to see where the Superman/Batman rivalry will go and what is it that Aquaman wanted Dianas help with. This is still proving to be a strong title. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Oct 5, 2016

    This issue is very well-written. The personality of the characters really shines through but Bryan Hitch knows how to balance the characters. This issue is heavy on Jess, Barry and Clark but leave hints and clues as to where the other characters are going. The art is really great as well and I enjoyed getting a story on a smaller scale. It's a fun issue and I recommend it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Oct 5, 2016

    Besides starting a new story arc, Justice League #5 also provides the introduction on new artistic talent as Matthew Clark and Tom Derenick share this issue. Avoiding the pitfall that so many books with multiple artists have, these two work well together and draw a consistent issue that is both direct and a beautiful compliment to Bryan Hitch’s story. His dialogue remains top notch and each character is really allowed to shine in this issue, even if it just for line or two. It is clear that this arc will focus more on the members’ internal struggles as much as battles with external enemies, and following an earth shaking previous arc where the conflict was with cosmic giants, I think it just the change of pace that this series needs.

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Oct 5, 2016

    If you were paying attention, then you might have noticed that two different artist worked on this issue and both Matthew Clark and Tom Derenick did an excellent job of complementing each other that I honestly didn't notice when I first read this. Something that jumped out of me immediately though were the expressive facial expressions. Whether it's the Justice League running in terror or Jessica looking completely shocked at her state of mind. It did strike me as odd that for one panel after Barry said yes to Jessica's request of a date her face is in shadow giving a sense of foreboding instead of a comical dread or perhaps giddiness. Storytelling from Clark and Derenick was rock solid, with no real complaints from me when it comes to their art. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Patrick Larose Oct 7, 2016

    While I'm sure the last shot of this shot of the comic is going to make people grown in the wake of Batman v. Superman but I don't hate it. In many ways, this arc feels like a desperate plea to me, that you're finally willing to give me what I wanted. That this story is not about the explosive stakes of a world in danger but one that puts the relationships of these characters at risk. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joe Ruggirello Oct 6, 2016

    The art on Justice League #6 gets off to a bit of a shaky start but slowly improves over the course of the issue. Hopefully the series itself can follow suit. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 5, 2016

    Bryan Hitch slows things down and concentrates on his characters and I liked the results.  It's more personal than the global threat the League just faced and that makes it all the better.  In fact, this is my favorite Bryan Hitch Justice League issue so far  and I hope that's something I can keep on saying in weeks to come.

    AiPT! - Matthew Theriault Oct 5, 2016

    I had hope that with The Extinction Machine arc finally finished Justice League might begin to improve. The pencils of Matthew Clark and Tom Derenick might be of minor improvement over Tony Daniel's (maybe), but Hitch has yet to prove himself to be a bard worthy of writing the lays of our culture's greatest gods and heroes. Plus, now I'm going to be worried all night that if I try to hold my date's hand, she'll go crazy and attack the wait staff. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 5, 2016

    DC really needs the Justice League of America title to connect as this Justice League continues to flounder. There's just nothing truly compelling to encourage readers to stick with the title at this point. Justice League is never actively terrible, but to some extent, it's worse because it's fails to warrant much emotion at all. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Oct 5, 2016

    In the wake of a disappointing first arc, I was hoping for better from Justice League #6. Hitch continues to depend on verbal revelation where visual revelation would be more natural, and there remains a disconnect between writer and artist that I've perceived since #1. This issue is the first of a short, two-part story, so if you're looking to save six bucks, skip October and give Justice League another shot next month. Read Full Review

    While this chapter slows down to focus on the characters, it left me with a "hunh-what's-going-on?!!!" feeling. It was the same feeling I had with the conclusion of the first arc of the Rebirth-ed Justice League. Something tells me Hitch is building towards something that will only pay in the long run. While that might turn off some people, I'm sticking around. On the other hand, did Barry Allen just come out as a superhero in a restaurant?

    The Villain Oct 5, 2016

    This is definitely a step up from the last few issues of the last arc. Things aren't quite as vague. I do really like the date between Barry Allen and Jessica Cruz. I probably wouldn't enjoy it as much as I would if I didn't read Green Lanterns. Only a few people in the Justice League get any amount of attention in this issue. The ending is shocking and a little out of the blue.

    While the beginning was more confusing than mysterious for me, and the ending was weird and out of nowhere, the middle worked fairly well for me. The Flash and Jessica Cruz side-story is a fun addition, along with any sort of team interaction from the Justice League being openly welcomed from me. Hitch has a lot to improve with the Justice League comics, but I do think this is a step up from the last arc.

    The first panel says everything about this series.

    There are 3 big problems in this issue as I see it: - right from the beginning it was a big mistake to start the story in what seems the middle of story arc, right after beating the bad guys (again getting zero info about them) and before the heroes realize its not over. The problem here is that having no context about what happened before decreases the impact and credibility to what we see is happening now - second problem is that this kind of story (good guys turning bad) has been done way too many times and there's nothing to indicate Hitch's version will be better or different than the rest - third strike is that what could've been the highlight of the issue gets sidelined too quickly; I really would have loved to see a complete issue (or more) dedicated to a Jess and Barry date nigh

    Think I'm done with the JL for a while. I don't know what DC is thinking.
