    As I said before this is the story I have been waiting for and Kindt hit it right on the head. With a gripping story with a really strong ending that has put my mind in motion to where this story is leading. With wonderful art and color from the entire art team this has been one of the best JLA's issue since it's debut in the New 52, make sure to pick this one up! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Dec 12, 2013

    This really is a must read comic. Not only for the huge implications that it has on the larger Forever Evil picture, but the story telling device used by Matt Kindt, and the excellent artwork throughout make it all a fantastic reading experience. What an amazing package it all is. Justice League of America #10 is not to be missed. This is a superior comic book in every conceivable way, and this reviewer enjoyed absolutely every single second spent reading it. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Frank Fuentes Dec 12, 2013

    DC has been doing a great job keeping the different Justice League titles differentiated. Justice League Dark is focused on fighting a manifestation of evil, Justice League is telling the backstories of the Crime Syndicate and Justice League of America is working towards finding and freeing the other team members. A lot is going on but thankfully the creators are doing an excellent job keeping focused. Justice League of America is certainly keeping me invested in seeing how Martian Manhunter and Stargirl free Superman, Wonder Woman and the Flash. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 11, 2013

    Justice League of America #10 is a decent book; not much to really comment on other than that. It great for the Stargirl fans out there and getting to see her kick a lot of ass, but that's kind of it since not much goes on in it otherwise. Worth a read, but not a must buy. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz Dec 12, 2013

    While this plot can be bit hard to follow with the murky details of the prison, Justice League of America # 10 starts to materialize the story, I remain optimistic that Kindt will incorporate more of the team as these Forever Evil issues progress. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Dec 12, 2013

    Despite the strong character moment, the issue suffers pacing problems and narration. The decision to showcast Stargirl's past is great, but the decision to have Martian Manhunter interrupting it can be kind of annoying. Overall, while the issue has many problems, the Stargirl's character moments are still great. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 11, 2013

    Given that Doug Mahnke illustrated Justice League #25 today, we can probably assume he won't be back on this series for the duration of Forever Evil. But Tom Derenick and Eddy Barrows make for fine replacements. Derenuick handles the flashback scenes, while Barrows delivers some of his best art in recent memory with the brutal, rain-soaked battle sequences. Derenick's work seems a bit rushed when it comes to facial details, but his work makes for a nice counterpoint to the crushing darkness of Forever Evil. And that sort of encapsulates Stargirl as a whole. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 12, 2013

    It seems that Justice League of America is struggling to find its place in the Forever Evil Event.  It's not that this title is bad, it's just not interesting.  We've been given two characters that have had little circulation in the DCU, to follow around, and try to make sense of what's going on around them.  But what's going on around them is taking it's sweet time in giving us a dose of the badass, that the other titles in this event have already done.  Don't get me wrong, I love the artwork, and I love getting a New 52 origin for Stargirl, but having the feeling of a big epic event, it falls a bit short.

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Dec 12, 2013

    Matt Kindt's “In Your Head” is a good comic for Stargirl fans and it has genuine moments of real brilliants but it also gets rather repetitive and offers no new developments in the Forever Evil saga. If you care at all about Stargirl, it's a must buy, but if you don't then this can probably be skipped. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Dec 14, 2013

    The basic flaws of this issue fall not entirely on the pacing or storytelling (or choice of characters to be spotlighted), but are also equally put on the shoulders of artists Tom Derenick and Eddy Barrows, who are both normally very good at what they do. This seems like a very rushed product, and, unfortunately, there are more sequences featuring strange or distracting facial expressions than there are ones with compelling looks, glances, and emotions. The artwork is rushed. The story is a simple "move the plot along and grab some more bucks for the company with a crossover tie-in," but it is not without its merits. In fact, it's actually still much better than quite a few other books on the stands today. And the biggest strength of this issue (and the crossover as a whole) is a sense of something bigger happening. And one of obvious continuity. The characterization, though kind of boring at times, is spot-on. Stargirl and Martian Manhunter never seem like they are written Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Jason Motes Dec 15, 2013

    Anyhoo… cover aside, this writing on this issue was sound. The art was decent, but not the best ever. It felt a little filler-y since it had only a vague connection to ‘Forever Evil' but it certainly wasn't a waste of money. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 12, 2013

    The fight sequences between Stargirl and Secret Society members Copperhead, Blockbuster, Shadow Thief, Giganta and Deathstroke are filled with vitality and adrenaline, but get a little choppy on the storytelling as the rainy conditions (which seem to be rather a specialty of Barrows') muddy up some of the paths of action and attack. Featuring a fraction of the Justice League team usually found in this title, Kindt delivers an odd buddy story that isn't really much of a buddy story at all. Once upon a time the teaming of Stargirl and Martian Manhunter would have flown under the banner of "The Brave and the Bold," but nowadays the Justice League brand brings cache, so if ever any Leaguer is present, there the League is. The story itself is a quaint investigation of Stargirl's history, but it really could have been just as effective in a more condensed deliverable. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 17, 2013

    From the start, this title has never made a very good case for its existence, and even after reducing its character load to two, it seems incapable of producing a distinctive or memorable story. Dropped. Read Full Review

    A fine issue but not the highlight of Kindt's career. Stargirl isn't really a character that he can sink his teeth into like the corrupt weirdos of Suicide Squad. I am happy to get her origin, but feel this issue could have used a little more Martian Manhunter.

    I only decided to pick up this book because of Martian Manhunter, and he's not been in the spotlight as much as Id like. I just cant bring myself to care about Stargirl, I hope the trend is reversed after this issues final pages.
