    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 15, 2015

    This issue came out of nowhere and proved that even in a huge action packed event, character rules out in the end,  Ron Marz uses the dome and it's circumstances to show the real characters beneath the costumes and it pays off big time.  If these characters don't survive, I will be genuinely upset at losing them.  I wouldn't have guessed I'd be saying that in a million years. Even if you don't like anyone on this team, check out this book.  It's really good. Read Full Review

    While a quiet issue overall, ending with Kingdom Come heroes appearing en masse, we only have jut gotten a taste of what our old Justice League International pals can do. While I do think some bolder fresher art across the entire medium (bring all these cool alt-cover artists onto interiors?) I'm willing to give this one a shot since it features Ted and highlights him lovingly so. I'd say bring it on please! Read Full Review

    Convergence: Justice League of America #1 is probably the least-exciting of all the Convergence tie-ins released this week, but it's by no means a bad comic. It's a low-key preamble to a big exciting battle, and a nice little character piece. Read Full Review

    Characterizations are really well done, the art looks great and is sort of a nice throw back. The only thing holding this issue back is the distinct lack of plot. Read Full Review

    Like many other Convergence artists, Manley's art exists mostly to be a vehicle for the narrative and not to be the real draw of the book. To that end, it succeeds. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 20, 2015

    "Convergence: Justice League International" #1 is a fine enough introduction to the concepts of "Convergence" and the Justice League International team but, in a sea of "Convergence" tie-ins, there isn't a strong enough hook to elevate this book above its peers. Marz and Manley deliver a solid character story with some adventurous bits of heroism and, given a little more room, might be able to serve up a transformative journey for Ted Kord. However, their assignment in "Convergence" simply doesn't allow the latitude to enrich the characters beyond motivation and conflict. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Apr 16, 2015

    If I judge this Justice League International #1 so harshly, its because this book had a lot of potential and even more fans of an era that have been left with something less than stellar as what could be our very last shot at reading the lives of these characters we adore. If this book was about the L.A.W. or the Ravers or Team Titans, I likely wouldnt be as disappointed. But this is the Justice League International. Full stop. And its just too ho-hum for that crowd. Not a Bwah-ha-ha in sight this week. Read Full Review
