    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Feb 12, 2014

    Justice League 3000 #3 is another good issue of the series with solid writing and great artwork. It has its problems, but nothing here that will hurt the book too much if one is open to the idea of imperfect Justice Leauge clones with fractured memories. Give it a shot and find out what you may be missing out on. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 12, 2014

    The characters still develop well, just not always consistently, and this books visuals are amazing. It stumbles sometimes in the writing, but thats overall very solid as well and definitely worth looking into. One thing I can say about this story is that it is unlike anything else in the DCU and that alone, pulled off as well as this is, makes it worthy of checking out and following. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 13, 2014

    Justice League 3000 #3 gives us a little more of a peek behind Giffin and DeMatteis' curtain.  They are dangling tiny carrots, but what we get is tasty.  Howard Porter's art is great and fits the book so well.  I just wish the characters were a little more likable. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Feb 13, 2014

    It's nice to see a book that I was so excited for when it was announced become everything I was expecting it to be. There are still a TON of questions to be answered but I trust this creative team to continue to entertain the hell out of me with this series. There are some great little reveals in this issue, like what planet Takron-Galtos really is, but I expect much bigger things to come because we still haven't been given a whole lot in the form of what's really going on in the plot. Anyone who loves these characters but would like to see them in a totally new setting should check out this series, because it's a heck of a lot of fun! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Bryan Huth Feb 17, 2014

    Despite its flaws, Justice League 3000 continues to deliver beautiful artwork, great story, high-octane action and all of which is held together by the cynical and sarcastic wise-cracks that these characters sling at each other on each and every page. What this creative team is beginning to do is something that series like Scott Snyders Batman and Brian Azzarellos Wonder Woman have been doing for several months now, theyre establishing a standard of consistency so that each month readers know that they will be purchasing a quality comic book. If writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis keep this up, Justice League 3000 could easily become one of DCs flagship series. Stay tuned to We The Nerdy for more Justice League 3000 and DC news and reviews. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - ironmarco Feb 13, 2014

    The series loses a little momentum in this issue but it uses this time effectively to add some valuable context to the story. While the league is still a main focus the issue spends more time explaining different aspects of the futuristic setting and giving more time to other characters. This may not have been as exciting as seeing a new version of the Justice League but it does give the story more substance and will undoubtedly pay off in the long run. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Feb 12, 2014

    That said, Keith Giffen and J.M Dematteis seem so sure of themselves in a portrayal of a "League of Jerks," that I'm somewhat convinced this is being done with a grand purpose. All of the main characters, from the League to the Wonder Twins, are entirely aware that there is a huge problem here: the League itself. I've got to assume that this is a part of some master plan, and I'm willing to stick with this book just a bit longer in order to see what the creators have got up their sleeves. Read Full Review

    TheCultDen - Paul Robinson Mar 20, 2014

    I said that the series needed to pick up momentum and move forward - and whilst this issue is intentionally a slower paced one, it does not deliver on any of the pay offs it should. Despite two fantastic character moments - the reveal of which planet the League are on, and Supermans' evolution to moral centre, it's still not playing the game that it needs to. I've been forgiving the past two issues, but I'm starting to lose patience. Read Full Review

    Should you read 'Justice League 3000'? If you're a fan of Keith Giffen's work on 'Legion of Superheroes', this book might be for you. If not, then you might want to pass on this title. It's hard to say how this title is going to play out with only three issues currently released, but if 'Justice League 3000' #3 is any indication of the future of the series, it still has the potential to be something amazing! We just have to hope it's able to find it's footing before DC preemptively pulls the plug on it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Jun 26, 2014

    The story has stopped in this issue, but it seems to be building up to something on the horizon. A showdown with The Five seems inching closer as we learn more and more about their members. I place a lot of emphasis on storytelling, so this issue suffers greatly without it. There also seem to be very few characters to care about at this point who aren't the League members.

    As the effects of Barry's death continue to be felt, readers are still taken through a story muddled with abrasive, overbearing characters and a deeply dramatic plot. Read Full Review

    Perhaps this is just the darkness before the dawn, but you have no confidence that the dawn to come will offer anything other than a waning glimmer of light. Dropped"and unceremoniously, I might add. Read Full Review
