    In conclusion this is one of the strongest issues yet, of all of Hitch’s Justice League. This actually seems like a coincidence since a lot of DC’s books this week in my opinion were some of the best of the series. One aspect that is interesting was the secret that seemed to be kept between the 3 ‘watchers’. Hopefully this issue shows a real turn in the series. Read Full Review

    ConclusionA very exciting follow-up issue to what could've otherwise been a boring arc. My doubts from the previous issue were all put to rest and I got to read an interesting and well presented set-up for what is to come. “Timeless” is shaping up to be a brilliant arc, and I hope that going forward things stay at this level – or continue to rise!

    I'm cautiously getting more and more optimistic with the future of this title. For the first time since this run started I'm really looking forward to what's in store next issue. Hopefully the creative team can keep the momentum up. Read Full Review

    Is this Justice League arc a bit clunky due to the wibbly wobbly, timey wimey choice they made to go with time travel? Yes, it kind of is. But this slightly convoluted choice has given the team an opportunity to explore multiple events in the timeline, which has been super interesting to see. Id recommend it if youve read Part 1 of the Timeless arc and are a fan of the Justice League comics in general. Read Full Review

    I liked this issue of Justice League.  Yea, I'm as surprised as everyone else, but I'm not going to fake the funk.  Bryan Hitch sets up his story way better than the first issue did and everything we got here has me excited going forward.  I can't say this is a jumping on (or jumping back) point for readers, but stay tuned, maybe there is hope afterall.

    Justice League fans will love the size and scope of this story. The time travel gobbledygook is beginning to grow tiresome as a lack of answers and lots of teasing continue. You can't fault the awesome art and premise though! Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Mar 1, 2017

    This is a visually stunning issue to look at. The scale and detail of the characters and the threat that they face is amazing. The plot really moves like a thriller in that it doesn't give away everything and lets the reader put the pieces of the story together at around the same pace as the characters. Read Full Review

    This is a great looking issue with a lot to offer in the story, even though I almost feel like this entire issue could be cut from the eventual collected edition to come without really losing anything from the overall plot. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 1, 2017

    Justice League #16 got a little hit and miss there, but by the end of the issue prove that this is a risky story that they put thought into to challenge these powerful heroes. Time may be the focus of the story and plot, but it also must be taken into account in the way this story arc is mapped out for the best result. Rushing is not an option which means from here we need to get the most out of what they have set up throughout time/history. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 1, 2017

    Just as I had given up hope forJustice League, Bryan Hitch showed that his writing can impress independently from his artwork. He still has much to do if he would rescuehis beleaguered run, butJustice League #16 is by far the most convincing argument that he has the skill and the willingness to do so. An improved showing from Pasarin is icing on the cake. Let's all hope this is the beginning of a change for the better. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Mar 3, 2017

    I typically don't read Justice League so I was more confused by some of the plot elements than regular readers would be. I can see that the story is interesting, though the big team ups of the JL are not my cup of tea. However, if you are a Justice League fan I think you will probably enjoy this issue and story arc. Even I will probably check in to see how Molly and the Timeless make out. Read Full Review

    Which each issue of this book I find the dialogue flat, and the pacing tedious. And its just not getting better. Read Full Review

    Forget the next issue, this whole book is doomed, with a broken up storyline where you can barely follow what exactly is going on, you find yourself lost after three pages. If this was a one off instance I could give this a pass, however it seems like Hitch is the only person who understands what exactly is going on in this Justice League story. To top it all off our team is separated facing a force they couldn't beat together trying to stop time bombs from going off and erasing major points in history, past or future, from happening. I can't even say the art is good in this issue either. Guys, I don't like taking money from D.C. So I'll say this: if you are one of the few still reading this book drop it and try something else… my 6-year-old tells a better story than Hitch... Read Full Review
