    A fun and head issue. If time paradoxes give you a headache, you might want to skip it, but if you love wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey stuff, then be sure to pick this issue up. Read Full Review

    A good issue with a clever story hook and a Flash-centric tale. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 4, 2017

    Even with a key moment being repeated over and over again, Hitch continually finds new ways to depict the carnage and human drama. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick May 3, 2017

    Bryan Hitch's Justice League #20 takes on the fun and mind-bending time-paradox story, and though this opening instalment of the "Endless" arc does at time suffer from clunky story progression, ultimately the issue winds up being an intriguing stab at this kind story with a lot of promise. With Hitch's customary strong grass of large scale action, he remains a solid fit for the League as an artists, and his willingness to take on big ideas and concepts that ask fundamental questions about the team smooths over any occasional structural problems.

    Interesting story beginning, I am interested in seeing where this will go but my rating is a little lowerfor using the Groundhog Day trope. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 3, 2017

    Hitch tends to start these arcs strong and falters with each subsequent issue. So in a way his run is symbolic of the Groundhog Day theme. Hopefully this is the storyline that breaks that trend. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally May 3, 2017

    I don't mind time travel stories, but back to back story lines already feel tired. I enjoyed the spectacle of this issue, but the story was flat and not sustainable past two more issues. Read Full Review

    A new storyline takes off for the Justice League, but the day that never ends for the World's Greatest Heroes loses focus quickly. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti May 3, 2017

    With both the art and writing off-kilter, Hitch proves once again he bases these stories on these giant-scale ideas that don't move nicely and don't feel satisfying once they're over. While there was a certain degree of fun, the typical Hitch nonsense still finds it way to irk me. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw May 3, 2017

    Better than the last arc, but not very interesting, Justice League #20 won't be worth the money or the time for most of you. Hitch fans may want another book filled with his pages"and they'll get quite a few nice city shots rendered in that trademark style. But as a book about the Justice League, Justice League #20 is still disappointingly average. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 3, 2017

    Bryan Hitch starts a new arc and it's the beginning of another "epic" story.  I put that in quotes because we've seen it all before and without a good setup, it all falls flat.  This is just another piece of the puzzle that is the most disappointing title in Rebirth and while I want to care, I am way past that point.

    DC is going to keep Bryan Hitch on, as long as sales are high. Unfortunately, he was given the most popular title, so of course people are going to keep buying it for the namessake. I don't recommend this book. Take the money you were going to spend and buy a different title. Read Full Review

    A lot of negativity on this one, however this was a good issue a fitting start for a new arc in the series.

    Again, this is not as bad as some recent Hitch JL stories, but it's still not the quality of writing (and art, in this issue) that the JL DESERVES. There's simply no real thrill or intrigue to this series anymore. And there WON'T be until Hitch is replaced as writer and artist. He should be writing All-Ages books.

    I'm so tired of time being the villain in most of his arcs. Every arc has felt explosive, but not in a good way. Big event after big event diminishes the sense of importance that succeeding should have for the League. I just want a small, well-written story.

    My score is only as high as it is because, this issue, Bryan Hitch's pencils are closer to the high quality art that we've come to expect from him (but haven't gotten in awhile as his pencils have suffered in recent years). His Flash,especially, has a classic look that I've come to miss...more and more, artists tend to draw the Flash's costume covered in glowing seams and electrical effects that overshadow the simple excellence of a classic costume. Unfortunately, the reason the score isn't higher is also due to Bryan Hitch. His writing and storytelling continue to be about as good as they have in previous issues (that's "good" as in, "not.."). If you've read a single, previous, issue you know what I'm talking about. If this is your first issue of Mr. Hytch's JUSTICE LEAGUE then know that this is as good as it gets. SCORE: 6

    This book is whack. Doesn't even feel like it's part of the continuity.

    No surprise that Hitch brings another boring story that is unnecessarily complicated. This time Flash tries to repeatedly stop a guy from detonating some kind of bomb but each time he does it, he ends up farther into the past and the guy just appears again saying the same and doing the same. Be smart and save your money as this wont end better than previous stories
