    Still, there was a definite sadness to this issue, Dick and Donna turning out the lights of the satellite and transporting away. Nightwing is in the DCnU. Supergirl is in the DCnU (albeit not this Supergirl). Jade is there (but what is her origin if Alan Scott wasn't the first GL). But the rest of these characters might not be seen for a long time. So I'll thank James Robinson again for his time on the title. Major threats, big arcs, legacy heroes ... it has been a fun ride. And this was a fitting closure. Read Full Review

    Robinson has always been at his best telling long-term stories, and the end of this issue is wonderfully bittersweet, a feeling that we're seeing the end of a story that barely started. I just hope his 12-issue Shade series isn't the only new thing he has in the works, because this James Robinson is one I want to read every single month. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 17, 2011

    It was a fun ride but this is the end for this Justice League. It was an odd choice to have a team consisting of non-original members (or the big guns) but James Robinson made it work and showed it was a great idea. Some of DC's final issues have felt a little flat but this is clearly a fitting end. We get little nods of what could have been if the series didn't have to face the relaunch and one line in particular clearly sets the stage for them in their next book. The art was a tiny bit inconsistent at times but the team looks great with the darker colors and gives it a feel of elegance. It's a shame to see this team go but next month it will be a whole new world. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Aug 17, 2011

    This book answers a few lingering questions and gives a vector for the League's members, but it's essentially a goodbye issue. Maybe you're the sentimental type, and you'll enjoy it. Maybe you're not, and you won't. I'd say that if you've been following the series, you should make sure to check out this issue, if only for a sense of closure. Read Full Review

    Robinson should be proud. He gave readers some fun stories with the characters he was allocated. I just hope we get to read more from Robinson in the new DC Universe this fall. As for whether or not anyone will remember this Justice League of America? I will. Read Full Review

    This was a mediocre issue of an odd series that I won't miss. Of course, the new JLA with it's history changing and random oddities doesn't really excite me either. They've leapt to stereotypes already- the cover for Justice League 2 features a Superman/Batman fight. Gee, that's never happened before. Behold the "new" DC. Read Full Review

    Heretical Jargon - Heretic Aug 25, 2011

    Monets paintings were awesome, filled with incredible lifeit wasnt just about the water lilies! This same philosophy can and should be implemented into storytelling, and Robinson never seemed to grasp onto that. Brad Meltzer gave this series such an amazing start. It really pains me to see that the League had to end in such a way before the DC reboot. Read Full Review
