    I have to say that Justice League has been amazing since the Forever Evil event. This is really the first time that the Justice League has come across actually desperate while still leaving enough mystery to have fans searching each panel and line of dialogue for answers. And lets not forget the art! The whole issue is an exercise in apocalypse couture, taking dismal shades and muted colors and putting them effectively into a world tha tis coming apart at the seems. I cannot wait for next month. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Dec 22, 2014

    It's this type of attention to detail " both in the story and the art " that makes Justice League #37 such a fun read. I can't help but think of Mark Waid's Justice League run of the early 2000's, a series that combined intense action with solid character development, impressive art, and great action. For me, Johns' Justice League has been hit and miss, but this arc has been well worth the read. We're no closer to finding out the truth behind the Amazo Virus, but I could care less. A comic this good is not one I want to see end soon. Read Full Review

    Justice League #37 is an entertaining issue that highlights some of the best aspects of a high profile team book. Big challenges, big personalities and big action in this one and I'm looking forward to the consequences of the Amazo Virus. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 17, 2014

    This is a really great issue of Justice League.  I wasn't completely on board when this story line began last month, but this issue certainly made me a believer in Geoff Johns' fever dream that is the Amazo Virus.  The highlight for me was all the character work and dialog that Johns' used between Superman and Batman and with Luthor's monologues, but even if that isn't for you, there is plenty to like about this issue.  Go check it out and get your sick on as you continue this Amazo Virus adventure.

    Geoff Johns knows how to pace a story. Fabok is a glorious monster when it comes to this incredible art. A fantastic second chapter in this series, I highly recommend. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Dec 18, 2014

    Overall, this is a good issue that takes a deeper look on many characters. The interactions are fun, but the main threat is kind of slow. Also, it would be nice if the rest of Leaguers can be back in the action too. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 17, 2014

    Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok continue to deliver a strong Justice League storyline anchored by a clever new take on Amazo and the unknown quantity that is Lex Luthor. While issue #37 does disappoint in its overuse of big splash images and a limited cast, it still offers plenty of excitement and strong character work. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 17, 2014

    Justice League #37, while a good issue, is an issue that is rather light on story and feels a bit too decompressed in areas. The writing, characterization, and artwork are all very good though and do elevate it, but the comic could have benefitted from a bit more story. Oh well, it's still worth your time and you should definitely still read it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Dec 18, 2014

    Gritty with house color palette (which I could take or leave) but with slightly over-average art makes this Justice League romp a continued narrative that's at the least intriguing and actually gives Diana something to do too in the midst of Superman and Batman's continued sausage-fest (I do like the humor here between them, despite the tone there are quite a few funny quips to keep you entertained).

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Dec 19, 2014

    Justice League kills it once again (no surprise there!). Geoff and the rest of the team on this arc know this is a different direction than most Justice League stories and they are traversing it with caution, passion, and attention. One cant ask for more. Justice League is a must read this week! Read Full Review

    GAMbIT Magazine - J. Luis Dec 19, 2014

    The way they are treating the classic Amazo in this manner gives it such a unique style and makes for an engaging storyline. If you have already jumped on board for issue one then I'm sure this is going to satisfy. If on the other hand you are new to this, you'll end up like me and feel lost in this world, especially after reading Teen Titans where everything seems dandy in the DCU. Regardless of what's going on you are going to have a good time with this book and will no doubt want to catch up on it before next month. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Dec 19, 2014

    Overall this story is turning out very well and it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Batman has been exposed to the Amazo Virus…nothing can keep the Dark Knight down right? Read Full Review

    "Justice League" was supposed to be the flagship book of the New 52, and it never quite lived up to that role, but lately it has felt like something close to that. Read Full Review

    A perfect example of what the Justice League has become under Johns: a company of three with some colorful bit players on the side"if they're lucky. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 19, 2014

    "The Amazo Virus" is an uncommon battle for the Justice League as the three most dynamic members of the team are left to fight a foe they cannot truly punch. That doesn't keep them from trading blows with Patient Zero, but Zero is not the villain of this piece, he's merely the embodiment of the predicament. This is a daring move for Johns and crew, but a welcome one as the Justice League is forced to work beyond their comfort level. The end of "Justice League" #37 illuminates their predicament and is certain to leave readers looking forward to more from Johns, Fabok, Anderson and Mangual. Read Full Review

    First Damien gets powers, now it seems Batman is going to get powers too. Who's next - Batgirl? The Amazo virus continues in Justice League 37, which focuses on Batman and Superman hunting, finding, and fighting Patient Zero. Wonder Woman comes in to help save the day in an awesome two-page spread. And we also get some good character moments with Lex and Lena Luthor. Geoff Johns does a great job (shocking, right?) with the script delivering some great action and drama, while also creating some mystery as to why Luthor actually created the virus in the first place. He lies to Lena and Captain Cold, while changing the story a bit, so we don't really know the motivation. It all comes together to make a great comic, telling a fantastic story. Jason Fabok does a great job on the art, with great figure work, intricate detail on both foregrounds and backgrounds, and just great action all around. The one drawback on both the script and art sides is the over-reliance on splash pages and two-page spreads. There's just too many of them, and maybe more development and story telling could be done if some of them were regular pages. But that is kind of a nit-pick. Overall, it's another great issue of Justice League. Highly recommended.

    Good story progressing the Amazo storyline. I don't like that the Trinity are the only ones who can help, though.

    Johns has always been conservative when it comes to storytelling for Justice League and it's more of the same this issue. Fabok's pencils are gorgeous and his Wonder Woman is still better drawn than the recent new direction art by Finch. I'm enjoying this run but we'll see if we get some twists now that Batman is about to go critical.

    The artwork is the true star of this issue, absolutely stunning interiors by Fabok and Anderson. The story is pretty stretched out, not much happens, but there is cool action and a killer cliffhanger. It's a little unfortunate that Snyder's Batman is also doing a virus outbreak story, and released in the same week too, oops.
