    I have been waiting for what feels like a very long time to read a good Legion comic. Who would have thought that I would find it in Justice League United? Because Justice League United #8 is just that, the best Legion comic I have read in the last couple of years. Read Full Review

    Another chapter in the Infinitus Saga that doesnt seem to develop much in its twenty pages, but certainly gives fans a ton of action spreads to drool over, Justice League United #8 is our next step in figuring out just what to expect out of the Legion of Super-Heroes come next summer. Long live the Legion, as we say, no matter who they end up being. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Jan 21, 2015

    Time travel stories tend to involve paradox. The very nature of journeying through the fourth dimension raises the possibility of … well, impossibility. Or, if impossibility doesn't occur, at least absurdity often does. The entire plot progression of Justice League United #8 constitutes a paradox of the absurd kind. Maybe the best way to put it is that nothing much happens accept the probable end of the universe. Read Full Review

    This is a quick, largely uneventful read that only succeeds on the strength of the visuals. Hopefully issue #9 can offer a more well-rounded chapter. Read Full Review

    Overall, this month's Justice League United just isn't a must-read, but it is a necessary addition to the current story arc. It's an acceptable issue for current readers, but those interested in trying to jump on to the book might want to go back a couple of months or wait until the current story arc wraps up.

    If you're a Legion fan, check it out, if you've been following the book, keep getting it. It you want classic super sci-fi Silver and Bronze age style action (this is like a mini Anti-Monitor) this is for you too. I'd like more emphasis on other characters but it's pretty clear Martian Manhunter and Supergirl are the true leads of this book. Better art would have made this score even better by a half point or so (it's closer to a 3.5 out of 5) but please check it out if space-y shenanigans are your thing! Read Full Review

    This isn't a bad story, but they're dragging it out a lot longer than it needs to go. I'm ready for it to be done, as much as I do like seeing the Legion again. Read Full Review

    We get a big reveal at the end of this book, but the rest of the issue was a complete waste.  We've got more characters added to the story and at this point I think the amount would be somewhere in the shit ton category....... I believe that's the technical term.  Really though, nothing happened in this book that you haven't seen before in the last two issues.  It really felt like a rerun and not the good kind like Fred Berry in What's Happening!!

    Some sweet action. Not much in the way of story.

    Despite its potential, JLU continues to be flat, lifeless, and uneventful despite the inclusion of the Legion.

    Just caught up only to find out Lemire is phoning in his final run at DC. This has been a far cry from his Animal Man and time on GA...what a shame.

    Here's where I drop this series. Too many characters with a story not strong enough or with the sort of emotional weight required to hold them all up.
