    Hitch fully captured the sense of urgency and race against the clock feel. This looks and reads like a whole different title from the one that kicked off in Rebirth. Maybe Hitch feels challenged from the Justice League of America title? Either way, the readers are benefiting from this significant enhancement of quality. Through this Timeless arc, Justice League is finally starting to feel like a prominent A-list title again. Read Full Review

    Justice League #17 is a really great book, that is setting up an epic storyline, that so far is Hitch’s best storyline yet. Hopefully the arcs following it will also be as great as this and of this high caliber. If it does you could be looking at a pretty good run on Justice League. Read Full Review

    Nothing is too certain with the conclusion of ‘Timeless' part three, but we know that like most stories this is the Justice League's time to rise to the occasion. Justice League #17 gave us some answers that we needed to move forward, though there are still plenty of questions to address for things to come full circle. They just need to keep up with the current pacing without distraction in order for us to be able to see this through to the end. Read Full Review

    A good character driven issue that allows all the principles to have their moments. There isn't a lot of action in the issue but the exposition isn't wasted on useless information. Everything that is said drives the plot along. The action is really well done and there are panels that really pop in their use of scale. Read Full Review

    Bryan Hitch clearly learned a lot while working beside Warren Ellis on The Authority a long time ago, as his current Justice League story feels a lot like something that would happen to that team... minus the vicious cynicism. Read Full Review

    This is a good issue when it comes to epic storytelling but a few plot holes pull you out of the story and make you scratch your head. Read Full Review

    Like I've said before, I'm not a regular Justice League reader so keep that in mind as you consider how to evaluate my rating. While this book isn't going to make me a regular JL reader I am enjoying the story line. The nature of these team books is that the story changes locations, with many different things happening to the disparate characters on the team. I find this frustrating and prefer to have a story exposed with many fewer threads. However, this story takes advantage of that 'weakness' and provides some insight into the pre-origins of Wonder Woman and Aquaman which I found compelling. I would heartily recommend this book to a Justice League fan and a soft recommendation to a non-fan. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris Mar 18, 2017

    Part three of “Timeless” didn't really lead anywhere. If next issue delivers, this one will be made almost a completely pointless addition. We have a lot cool plot points left floating up in the air, but I have faith that Hitch and his team will find a way to bring them back down to earth. Read Full Review

    Justice League #17 would be forgivably average in another context, but in a series where average is the high bar, it's tough to celebrate rising from “terrible” to “I don't hate it.” Hitch's dialogue-driven approach makes reading this less of a chore, but not much happens, and the characters still don't read like themselves. Pasarin has some nice wide shots, but his humanoid figures still look distractingly strange more often than not, and I found it very hard to immerse myself in his side of the story. I'm happy this wasn't terrible, but I'm not terribly happy"we need better forJustice League than “just okay”. Read Full Review

    While there's still promise for future issues, JUSTICE LEAGUE #17 is a lackluster issue where not a lot happens. Read Full Review

    However, like I said this issue had some problems, now while it has gotten better labeling where we are I still found myself taken out of the story by switching from place and time. I understand we have to set up for what comes next, but the way this book flowed seemed to bit off to me. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 15, 2017

    Justice League #17 finally reveals the true nature of the Timeless and their leader, Tempus, but for now, it's pretty laughable.  The art in this issue is fantastic, but the uneven storytelling and tell me don't show me dialogue makes for a below average read.  Unfortunately, this issue halts the momentum of last issue and has me once again not enjoying DC's flagship title.
