    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 24, 2015

    This continues to be a sort of irreverent super-hero book. It goes along at a fast pace. It has character moments and high action. And it is a weird book with semi-likable heroes and subterfuge and deceit. Add some pretty dynamic art from Howard Porter and this book crackled. I like this book! I can only hope that Supergirl continues to be portrayed like this. She should be a great foil to the current Leaguers, a call back to a simpler and brighter world. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 23, 2015

    I still really don't know what to make of this book. It's got a lot of elements I like to it with a creative team that I've adored for years and it does all work very, very well. But there's a disconcerting element about it that I haven't quite figured out yet. I suspect a good part of it that I haven't read the 3000 series itself so I'm feeling shaky on the whole continuity side of it and the big picture that may have been established. But this book provides for a lot of great character warping, silliness and a good bit of time with the cast calling Superman "Clarkies." Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 23, 2015

    This issue of Justice League 3001 may be more setup than returning readers may like, but if it helps get new readers more involved, I'm all for it.  J.M. DeMatteis continues giving fans great characters and a hilarious story drawn expertly by Howard Porter.  If you expected an issue filled with Supergirl, you'll be disappointed, but you can still enjoy Guy Gardner and the rest of the Justice League in the funniest book in the DC You.

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Aug 8, 2015

    Another fun entry into the growing catalogue of the JL3K, this issue highlights both the elements that make this series great, as well as the problems with DC's eagerness to use time-skips. There's still too much missing from the story, and while I can't blame Giffen and DeMatteis, it's not something that's just going to go away anytime soon. I trust them to make the best of a bad situation, though. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 27, 2015

    "Justice League 3001" #2 is indicative of the series as a whole: some issues (or parts of issues) work great, other ones just stumble forward, as if smashing into everything in its path. There's enough here to enjoy the issue and to hope that the next installment is a little stronger, but it's hard to get overly excited. I've come to like the series just enough to keep an eye on it, but I keep wishing that everything would come together enough to love it. "Justice League 3001" may have a new year in its title but, at the end of the day, it's still the same strange cousin of the rest of the DC Universe line. Not bad, but could be better.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jul 28, 2015

    In conclusion then, Justice League 3001 #2 is a flawed but fun second issue that continues to entertain. Whilst not perfect theres more than enough to keep fans reading and itll be interesting to see where Giffen, DeMatteis, Porter and HiFi go from here and what insane idea they can come up with next.

    Comic Crusaders - Lead Sharp Jul 26, 2015

    It's far from a bad comic and it may well be I struck unlucky with the issue but wanting Penn and Teller and getting Uncle Jimmy the children's entertainer left me feeling a bit wretched. Read Full Review
