    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 29, 2012

    The new status of the DC Universe has been established. Questions are answered and at the same time, others are raised. Darkseid was an interesting choice as the first big villain for the heroes to face as they gathered together to form the Justice League. His threat level has been raised and his reasons for being on Earth plants the seeds for what's to come. Because we have Johns and Lee, we expect some big moments and they deliver. There are some really great moments with each member showcasing their individual talents that will remind you how much potential they all have as a team. The back-up story was a welcome and long awaited treat. Those seven pages made a great issue even better. If this is just the opening act for the Justice League, I can't wait to see what Johns and Lee have planned for us next. Read Full Review

    If I could easily put it, I would say that Justice League # 6 was simply an action movie; an action movie of the Justice League we all like to see happen in the near future. We really don't need too much drama for this particular issue and that's exactly what we got. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Mar 1, 2012

    This should be DC's flagship comic - and thanks to the "New 52" revival, for the first time in a long time, that's what it is. Read Full Review

    Pick up this issue. It was a great ending to this story arc. I thought this issue was a great beginning for the series and the team. The battle with Darkseid was also great and should not be missed. If you are not reading this series this is a perfect place to start reading. Read Full Review

    IGN - Erik Norris Feb 29, 2012

    Justice League isn't quite the book I want it to be -- one that mixes the bombastic superheroics with deep characterization (this coming from a guy who actually loved Brad Meltzer's introspective run on the title from a few years ago). With that said, however, this issue in particular did a whole lot more right than it did wrong. There were a lot of great little moments scattered throughout and some solid teases as to the potential of this series moving forward. I'm excited to see what the future holds for the "Super Seven."

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Mar 1, 2012

    Quite a lot of fun was had with all of this and the artwork was very impressive. Look out next month when Lee is replaced by Gene Ha and the story takes a 5 year leap to the present day. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Mar 2, 2012

    Justice League #6 was a nice action packed end to the first arc for DC Comics flagship title. There were still a lot of problems when it came down to the core plot but I did enjoy this issue in a shut down your brain and enjoy the action sort of way. Geoff Johns did a good job finally bringing the team together and giving each member their own moments to shine. Now that the team is finally together I hope the pacing picks up for this series. If you are a fan of action packed comics Justice League is something you may want to check out. However, if you are looking for a comic with a strong plot I do not recommend buying Justice League.

    Heretical Jargon - Heretic Mar 6, 2012

    The team stands in front of the world at the capital accepting recognition from the President. While the cheers and hoopla are thrown their way however, the League wonders where they go from here. They aren't a team, they don't really like each other, and feel much more drawn towards their personal responsibilities rather than the the assumed collective responsibilities as the League. However, they can't refuse the acceptance as it's a free ticket into the hearts of the people. Thus will follow the fantastic potential of great character building stories and team building adventures! I'll definitely be coming back for more to see how Johns builds this team into somethings bold and daring! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 1, 2012

    The first story is complete. Darkseid has been introduced. The Justice League has found the benefit to teamwork. Geoff Johns and Jim Lee have produced entertaining comics. Where does it all go from here, though? "Justice League" should be DC's flagship title and it very well could be on the ascent. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Mar 5, 2012

    This issue was easily the most value per dollar of any of the Justice League issues thus far, but it feels like too little too late. The only part of the main story that really grabbed my attention was the last page, and while I thought that moment was pretty cool, one good page isn't really great motivation to come back for more. I feel like it's a bit representative of the arc as a whole. There was a lot going on, but very little of it was really worthwhile. With that in mind, I can't say I'm terribly eager to keep buying this series. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 1, 2012

    As I said, the book so far hasn't been the tentpole book I was hoping it would be. Maybe Johns and Lee felt they needed a big loud splash to open up the DCnU. And hopefully the next stories will be more about the characters and less about their fists. I find it interesting that the moment I am going to probably remember most about this arc will be the Flash goofily naming the team 'The Super Seven', a simple phrase speaking volumes about Barry. The moment I will most likely try to forget? Batman taking off his cowl ... something I can never ever ever imagine he would do. But the reveal that the hooded woman was Glorith Pandora is kind of interesting. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Mar 3, 2012

    As the first story arc wraps up, the ending left me feeling a little empty. Some will love it, others will downright loathe it. Im reminded of the Grant Morrison Animal Man series ending which left a bad taste in my mouth. For me, the jurys still out on this issue, but I think Ill stick around for a few more issues just to see where it goes. After all, theyre the worlds greatest super heroes! Written by Geoff Johns (Aquaman) & illustrated by Jim (gaze in wonder at my beautiful drawings) Lee (Superman : For Tomorrow). From DC Comics. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 5, 2012

    Also worth of note is the short back-up story involving Pandora which, despite what DC says publicly, continues to hedge the company's bets by further opening the door that not everyone is happy with the New 52 – including the Spectre and the Phantom Stranger. Next month – Captain Marvel. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 29, 2012

    Yet striking artwork aside, I can't help but feel a bit disappointed with the execution of this book. I had no problem with the relaunch of the DC Universe, as I felt the opportunities for new directions and new insights would help reinvigorate the Justice League for a new generation. But that's the problem with having all style and little substance " with the action-heavy approach, these characters feel more like strangers than ever. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Mar 2, 2012

    Johns and Lee do drop some rather enticing hints, but they're enough to make this first arc seem like something less than setup for bigger and better things. These first few months of Justice League, like much of these first few months of the New 52, have felt like treading water until we're ready to actually start swimming. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Matthew E. Jones Feb 29, 2012

    The funny thing is that I STILL want to love this book. Im looking forward to Gene Has 2-issue fill-in for Jim Lee. Honestly, I dont care if Lee ever comes back. The way this book is now, I dont see myself reading any more than 12 issues. Geoff Johns, you are on notice!!! Youve got 6 issues to prove to me that your inner fanboy hasnt been killed by corporate success. Wow me. You certainly arent doing it now. But what the hell do I know, right? This is the industrys top-selling book. Shame on us all. Read Full Review
