    Justice League 3001 is fun, cover to cover. This messed up, dysfunctional League is one to follow. Read Full Review

    There really isn't much wrong with this book.  Maybe you can fault it for not being completely new user friendly, but I still think new users can jump in and have a ball.  If you were a fan of Justice League 3000, trust me when I tell you, 3001 is already better and the cliffhanger promises so much more.  Just buy it and fall in love all over again.  Justice League 3000 is dead...Long live Justice League 3001!

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Jun 24, 2015

    Justice League 3001 #1 isn't exactly the clean break I'd anticipated for a first issue, but it does showcase the cast of characters so well, and give us an enormous amount of fun along the way, that I still give it a huge recommendation to any of the following: fans of the original Justice League International, fans of the previous 14 issues, fans of super-heroes that are just plain funny, and pretty much anyone breathing. It's a wild ride, and you don't want to miss your chance to get onboard. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 26, 2015

    "Justice League 3001" #1 is exactly the type of comic book the new, "bolder" DC should be publishing. Following the formula they employed in "Justice League 3000," Giffen, DeMatteis, Porter, Hi-Fi and Leigh continue to give readers a lot to look forward to each month and provide a wonderful sample of what readers should expect going forward. This is a thick, multi-faceted read with something for every fan of any era of the DC Universe as well as plenty for fans looking for that new book to try out. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Jun 24, 2015

    For what is partly a continuation of an existing story, JUSTICE LEAGUE 3001 can almost stand alone as its own book. There are enough new elements to pull existing readers in, while giving new audiences enough information to hit the ground running. For that is the real joy of this book, in always trying to catch up with the action. If you aren't reading this already, and you like a decent chuckle, it may be one of the funniest books on the market at the moment. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Elvis Dutan Jun 29, 2015

    Justice League 3001 is a strong start to a series that needed at least a second chance. Will it be able to ride the wave of the DC YOU push? One hopes so. I certainly do, because this is a team of creative forces that should be on everyones watch list. Of course not even this team is infallible – were going to be getting some guest artists. But one of them is Scott Kolins, who can hate that?Thoughts and comments would be appreciated below. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 25, 2015

    In a way, I'm really uncertain about what to make of this book. It's not a fresh start or one that really makes it clear what the deal is early on, though it does tease pieces of it along the way. It is a book that required me to go read Wikipedia to get the basics though, and I haven't had to do that in years. There's a really rich and engaging world that's built here, but it's a continuation of the pre-Convergence series, so that makes it an incredibly difficult jumping on point. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 30, 2015

    There is stuff I still don't get. The Fire/Ice stuff needs fleshing out. We hear about Firestorm but we didn't see him. But this was grabbing enough to make me ... gasp ... seek out the back issues of the old series. I won't read this series with the same discerning eye I read others, in the same way I don't watch Evil Dead 2 with the same critical eye I watch The Exorcist. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Jul 8, 2015

    Personally, I'm just tired of all these not-really-a-reboots, and would rather this be a whole new story, but maybe I'm just not the mega-fan I need to be to care about every tiny detail in the DC universe. It's a good read, but it feels stretched to fit all the tie-ins in. This is definitely best for diehards or total newbies, which is likely a very sound business decision. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Jun 25, 2015

    Justice League 3001 #1 makes for a great continuation of Justice League 3000, but it may be challenging for new readers unfamiliar with the events of Justice League 3000. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Jun 29, 2015

    For better or for worse, this is DC's "Nextwave." I loved it, but I'm not sure I was supposed to love it for the reasons I did. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jun 24, 2015

    Although this is very much a Giffen product, the end result is not as corny as it might be expected to be. The jokes are there, and they mostly misfire, although they do work on occasion. What is most noteworthy is that the plot almost perfectly fits the group of characters (except for the self serving nods to his own work from 20 years ago) as the concept is big idea enough for this powerful team. This issue is not a grand slam, but it works well enough on enough levels to be an enjoyable read, though not much more. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jun 26, 2015

    As a continuation, this is another solid issue with a lot going for it. As a premiere issue, it's going to confuse any new reader who picks it up. But I urge those new readers to stay with it, as you'll get maybe the most surprising re-examination of DC's big icons around. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Jun 27, 2015

    Overall: A fun, enjoyable start to a series with a lot of freedom and strong creative team. While the time-skip left a lot of unanswered questions and loose ends, it did propel the story forward from one arc to the next. Lots of story-telling potential and excellent artwork keep me engaged and looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Jun 27, 2015

    All in all Justice League 3001 #1 was an interesting comic. There is quite a lot of inappropriate humor but that can fixed. The characters not instantly likable and that's going to easily take people out of the story. The art is very good but this team will have to do a lot more to win over fans. Read Full Review
