"TIMELESS" part four! Separated by centuries, the Justice League fights their way through the Timeless hordes towards the incredible machines that are rewriting history-except Batman, who undertakes a mission to rescue Superman from the clutches of the Timeless Mind!

    A big action sort of issue that changes the game at the 11th hour for the better. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Apr 5, 2017

    A story that moves really well and has genuine twists that are both surprising and satisfying. The artwork serves the story and action beats well and the intricate details are worth the look. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Apr 8, 2017

    It's a powerful story, and the artwork by Fernando Pasarin and Matt Ryan is powerful (and very Hitch-like) - and it ends on a terrific cliffhanger - but I do wish they'd take a moment and show us the human side of the team, and a little less of the FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT side of things.

    And Ive cracked 200 words on this. I could end the review, or I could talk more about how much I loved Infinity, Inc. Remember that great Crisis issue with Helix where the border of the pages was done like a Monopoly game? Good times. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 5, 2017

    Things aren't perfect, but Timeless is getting us somewhere good. Justice League #18 played the smart game in focusing on where this story prospered the most. Other parts did suffer for this, but that is what happens when you stretch things a bit too far. Its understood why, but that's just how it is when working with a team book. You want to justify these heroes coming together, though at the same time you want all of them to be playing a big part. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Apr 6, 2017

    The art really is gorgeous and it can make up for a lot of those issues, but the execution of this story is lacking. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 5, 2017

    While this issue largely felt like it was running in place, the plot looks to finally be advancing. Coupled with Pasarin's fantastic art that's enough reason to still be invested in this arc " for now. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Apr 7, 2017

    As I have said in previous reviews, I am not a fan of Justice League. I do like the story here, however, though not enough to make me a regular reader. I didn't miss all the scenes with Flash, Cyborg, Green Lanterns et al since I felt those deviations, though necessary to the DNA of Justice League stories, broke up the flow of the plot. It is a weakness of team books that I personallydon't care for. However, I realize I am in the minority and if you are reading a Justice League review you are probably a fan and will enjoy this more than I did. Even so, I see that this is a solid story well told and drawn and I recommend it to Justice League fans. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Duke Harrington Apr 6, 2017

    Right now, Justice League is a treat, with good scripting and great visuals, but as a narrative meal it's all dessert and no meat, giving immediate satisfaction but ultimately leaving one hungry for more. As the saying goes, in terms of plotting for individual issues, there's not enough there, there. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 5, 2017

    The arc is almost over but, given the strength of the earlier issues, I'm genuinely curious as to how this story will end. The art was mostly nice save for the horrendous faces, but the pacing was off and pages were wasted on completely meaningless storytelling. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris Apr 8, 2017

    There's certainly things to love about this book, but in this issue you would be hard-pressed to find many of them. The art holds up as well as ever, but the writing fell flat, though still enjoyable in some moments. I had my reservations about this arc from the beginning, and it's certainly been a roller coaster since then. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 5, 2017

    Bryan Hitch is trying to write a big story here, but it all falls flat because nothing he is attempting has been earned...not by the villains and not by him.  Things just seem to happen because they need to, but at least the art looks great.  Unfortunately, that's not enough for me to recommend anything except to stay far away for this book for now and the near future.

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Apr 5, 2017

    Readable, yet mediocre, Justice League #18moves the “Timeless” plot forward by inches. Sloppy dialogue and characterization become more evident on subsequent readings, and the two primary points of plot tension have either resolved elsewhere or end up feeling unearned. Read something else. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Apr 5, 2017

    After months of ragging on Justice League I feel just a hint of "okay I could get on board with this.' I still find myself struggling to get the plot straight and am having to continuously go back to fact-check. Comics aren't suppose to be this complicated! But from what we've been getting so far I would say this arc is finally an improvement. Read Full Review
