    The Amazo Virus story might be over but theres some interesting things that will come out of this. Were still seeing the Justice League try to get used to the idea of Lex Luthor and Captain Cold on the team. This issue really puts them to the test and shows what theyre capable of when fighting alongside the team. Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok are delivering a nice juicy series with glorious over the top action and visuals. But its not all non-stop action as we do see some cool character development as well. I cant wait to see whats coming up next in this series. With The Darkseid War coming up, these guys must just be warming up. I have a feeling things are going to get pretty bonkers. Read Full Review

    I am thoroughly satisfied with Jason Fabok and Geoff Johns' initial run together and I'm betting on more of the same high quality work on their next arc. Johns writes wonderfully for the various characters in the book, really showcasing their individual personalities and showing great development for each main player as events unfold. Besides the awesome artwork, the TWO reveals at the end of the book is what kicked the score up for me. A fitting end to a great story. SHOW SPOILER Lex Luthor was so deadset on being the hero that as a result, he ended getting his first very own rogue gallery member"Amazo. I like this version of the villain and can't wait to see if he's brought back into the mix. Welcome to the big leagues, Lex. Also, the other reveal was the return of Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern. My mind is already racing as I anxiously wait to see what's next! Read Full Review

    As before, Jason Fabok is the artist here, with Brad Anderson on colours and Carlos M. Mangual on the letters. The art here is top-notch yet again. Jason Fabok is absolutely aces with his pencils and Brad's no slouch either. All the super-action that Wonder Woman gets up to is great and very dynamic too. Plus there are all the scenes that contrast modern-day Metropolis to ancient Athens, and the juxtaposition of those panels is handled really well. Plus, the expressions on Lex's face all throughout the comic, that's just gold right there. Poor Lex. And Captain Cold rocked his panels, that suave charmer. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 18, 2015

    While some may think that this story is wrapped up way too quick, it actually worked for me because I wasn't all about the Amazo Virus and it gave the book a chance to show us the characters being themselves other than fighting an all out battle against infected superheroes and civilians.  Great art and great character moments do a awesome job of wrapping up with story.  Go get your Justice League on.

    Comicosity - John Ernenputsch Feb 19, 2015

    If the creative team of Johns and Fabok can continue building on the momentum set forth here in their first arc together then we may be looking at something special headed our way with the Darkseid War. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Feb 22, 2015

    Writer Geoff Johns has taken a villain with a simple yet effective premise and has added a layer of depth that ultimately makes the character more interesting and more compelling. Also, at the end of this issue we see the return of a hero to the Justice League right in time for the next big storyline, the Darkseid War. Exciting times are ahead for the League with the return of Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor, but this latest issue concludes an exciting arc that shouldn't be missed. Justice League combines the wonderful writing of Geoff Johns and the brilliant art by Jason Fabok to create a super hero book that I think deserves your time. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 23, 2015

    While the pacing occasionally stumbles, "The Amazo Virus" is bar-none the best arc Justice League has had since its relaunch nearly 40 issues ago. The reason why is because ultimately, the villains of the Justice League are never going to be as interesting as the heroes involved - that's just what happens when you have 70+ years of history for each member of your supporting cast. And if there was one major sin Justice League had been defined by in the past, it was favoring the event over the characters involved. I am very pleased to say that that's no longer the case. If event fatigue caused you to drop Justice League, then consider "The Amazo Virus" the cure to what ails you. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Feb 19, 2015

    “Justice League” #39 is classic superhero action and mayhem that makes this a consistently great read. Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok make for a great team and this is easily one of DC's best ongoings. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 18, 2015

    This issue managed to address one flaw of "The Amazo Virus" (the lack of focus on the other team members) while diminishing one of its bigger selling points (the fun twists on the usual Amazo formula). But with Jason Fabok's art continuing to be the glue that holds this story together, the end result was still an entertaining superhero epic with a healthy dose of zombie horror thrown in. Hopefully this is a collaboration that'll last. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Feb 19, 2015

    Also, the surprise return of a character is awesome! It's been too long since his last appearance in Justice League, and if anything, we ‘re finally getting more focus on Power Ring too. Prelude to Darkseid War is coming next month, and I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 20, 2015

    "Justice League" #39 leaves the DC Universe and the League different than it was when "The Amazo Virus" outbreak occurred. Johns, Fabok, Anderson and Mangual have returned the scope of Justice League adventures to a grand scale and, with this issue, they bring the story to a strong finish reminiscent of classic Justice League tales.

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Feb 21, 2015

    This was an interesting end to the last arc and introduces Amos Fortune as the person who put the hit on Lex Luthor, an origin story for Amazo, as well as sets the stage for brand new meta-humans. It sort of reminds me of when Marvel spilled the Terrigen Mists to create more Inhumans in the mutant manner due to Fox owning the rights to X-Men in the films and Marvel position the Inhumans as their general replacement (RIP X-Men relevance). Who will come forth with these new powers will be interesting to see. Otherwise this is a bit underwhelming of an end but it works so in all I give it a solid score. (Minus points for bringing back Hal Jordan god what a bore) Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 21, 2015

    Start spreading the news, folks: Johns has finally learned how to write Wonder Woman. In the beginning, Diana seemed like the Justice League's brainless powerhouse, starting and ending sentences with requests to fight. Then came the fallow period, when she hardly featured at all. As recently as #37, even with most of her cast-mates out of commission, Diana entered the picture only to demonstrate her battle prowess, leaving the plot advancement to her male colleagues.

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Feb 19, 2015

    Justice League #39 brings the "Amazo Virus" arc to a close, but not neatly. Geoff Johns has so many threads to tie up that the comic is too heavily packed. The solution to the stopping Patient Zero is delivered without much finesse and so the book seems more concerned with setting up future storylines than in giving this one a solid finale.

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Feb 20, 2015

    Overall I liked the Amazo Virus story, however I found the ending a little weak…but the awesome art and fight sequences made up for it a little bit. However I am intrigued by next months tease of The Darkseid War…guess we will be seeing Darkseid return to Earth and continue his fight that he started back in the first storyline of Justice League.
