    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jan 21, 2017

    In a complete shocker, Justice League #13 is one of the best comics of the week. Tim Seeley made this a fun and creepy book that had great art to match it. If youre not a fan of the series thats fine, but this is definitely an issue worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 18, 2017

    Some great, and revolting, art by Scot Eaton and Wayne Faucher helps make this a tie-in completely worthy of being a part of the excellent miniseries. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Jan 18, 2017

    The issue manages to entertain with ease. And whilst it's slightly disappointing to see the side-step away from the main story instead of giving Trevor a one-shot comic, it's still a fantastic read. When it comes to the twist ending ofJustice League #13, we loved it. Kind of. The direction it took was a little different to what we were thinking it would. But it was a valuable look into the mindset of the villain, given that we only meet him briefly at the end of the most recent JL vs. SS issue. It's a neat little addition to the event, and it's always great to see more of Steve Trevor in his own adventures away from Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    This might not be an essential reading for the JL vs Suicide Squad crossover, but Seeley and Eaton offer a solid companion piece worth reading. Read Full Review

    I may not love what's happening, but I love the way Seeley and Eaton present it. Great writing and solid visuals raise the stakes for this event by making it a lot more personal, elevating JLVSS even as the event issues themselves have been a mixed bag. I think his one's worth picking up, even if you aren't reading the event. Read Full Review

    On the art side of things, Eaton delivers a solid book and really manages to get across the gruesomeness of this new world. There is nothing amazing distinctive about his art style, but it fits well with Seeley's writing and really captured every detail. Overall, this is not my favourite work of Seeley's, and despite my problems with it, this issue is a solid tie-in for the main story, and it will be interesting to see how all of this is concluded next week.

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Aug 30, 2017

    Justice League of America #13 is a good issue. As the search for Ray Palmer continues, it's clear that the team can't trust anyone they come across in the microverse, and even once they do find Ray Palmer, just how exactly do they get back home? Definitely looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Jan 18, 2017

    Tie in issues are often difficult in that they are forced to operate within the context of a larger narrative, but are limited to telling stories that do not necessary affect the outcome of the main story. Tim Seely does an excellent job of crafting a story that, although built upon the events of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, very much stands on its own. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Selby Jan 20, 2017

    Eaton does a good job with what what he's given to work with. I don't think Scot Eaton will ever be one of DC's top tier artists, but he gets the job done and has shown himself to be a solid fill-in artist. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Jan 19, 2017

    Overall, this is an okay issue. It is well drawn and colored and Tim Seeley does his best to make it engaging. I did enjoy the little character moments for Steve. But, the issue feels pointless and a little dull. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Jan 18, 2017

    This issue could potentially have made things work for a troubled crossover, but it instead leaves a lot to be desired. There's little getting around the fact that – despite the carnage wrought throughout – this feels like a throwaway issue that won't have much impact on anything long term. Read Full Review

    While this story was confusing as to whether any of this actually happened or if this was all in his head while Eclipso is trying to take control of him. I am going to go with the thought that it is real, so my follow up question would be: if Steve Trevor has that much will that he can fight Eclipso's power for as long as he did why is that our Green Lanterns were taken over with ease since, you know, they harness the power of will. Mr. Seeley, you have confused me completely and I am left with more questions after reading this than I had going into it. The art on the other hand was AMAZING and easily makes this book a must read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 17, 2017

    I don't really recommend this book for anyone.  If you just have to get every issue of this DC event, you will already be buying it and who am I to stop you?  If you are looking to me to see if you should pick it up, the answer is no! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Michael Hale Jan 18, 2017

    In the end, Justice League #13 wasnt a good comic for me, but I hope I am clear about what baggage I bring into this comic from the start. Eclipso is never going to be something I enjoy seeing used, but I think where Seeley and his artistic team succeed is crafting what the narrative needs: they needed to show hell on earth.

    We Got This Covered - Robert Pleasant Jan 18, 2017

    Justice League #13 is a side story featuring a side character that almost works as a survival horror tale, one with very nice artwork. Read Full Review
