    Ever since the New 52 teased Mera as being a member of the Justice League back in 2011 I've been patiently waiting for her to join the team and shine. Over six years later I finally get everything I wanted with Justice League #24! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Jul 5, 2017

    Gorgeous and consistent artistic detail, and attention to each league's strengths, merged with Mera's emotional journey and search for support create a dynamic issue. It will make you want to find other comics fans to debate, in the most fun way possible. Read Full Review

    Nation Of Nerds - Justin Swenson Jul 5, 2017

    The artwork is fantastic and the colors are not very bright. I don't mean this in a bad way, I'm just pointing out that everything looks dim against the dark gray sky in the background. Which really is quite fitting for what's happening, and it sets the tone for the issue. So a big thumbs up to Adriano Lucas for proper coloring, and to Ian Churchill for wonderful art. Dan Abnet guest writes this issue and I think he did a pretty good job. The writing and story are pretty usual of a Justice League comic and I feel like it's setting up for something really cool. I recommend picking this book up in your pull for the week. I can't wait to see what happens next! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jul 7, 2017

    Yes, the Justice League are in this issue, and everyone gets an opportunity to do something, but Mera is the unquestioned star of the show. The events in the story allow the Justice League to learn what has happened to their former partner, and decide how to go forward without him. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Christian Bone Jul 5, 2017

    This latest standalone issue of Justice League is a classic superhero crossover punch-up that might not blow you out of the water, but is certainly entertaining enough. Read Full Review

    With a powerful new member, the League are set to take on future threats. Justice League has been gaining steam and if this trend continues, it could return to being one of DC's top series. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Jul 8, 2017

    I really enjoyed this issue and although it was relatively short, writer Dan Abnett successfully brought the Justice League to life with all the big players from the DC Universe. The characters were written well and there were some strong scenes between Superman, Wonder Woman and Mera. Add in the realistic art of Ian Churchill filled with dynamic poses and emotion and I for one would love to see this team take over the Justice League in the future. Read Full Review

    If you've bee enjoying Aquaman, then Justice League #24 is a must-read, as it only layers more atop that already engaging title. As a one-off, it presents new possibilities for the future League. Either way, the issue should be in your read pile this week. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jul 5, 2017

    In this tie-in to the current Aquaman storyline, Dan Abnett deflates Mera's journey in this unnecessary action-heavy issue, which is made up for by Ian Churchill's awesome art. Read Full Review

    Great visuals and a good character study of Mera and her relationship to the League. Story felt a little rushed, but it worked overall. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 5, 2017

    Dan Abnett jumps onto Justice League to show that Mera is a badass.  I'm guessing this issue was a leftover when the Aquaman book went monthly and was used to mask a delay in this book, but I've been wrong before.  Whatever the case may be, it didn't quite feel necessary, but the art and the Mera-centric story will please enough people out there, but if you are on the fence, i would suggest you skip it.   Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Sharna Jahangir Jul 10, 2017

    Art is spectacular! Mera is still badass and powerful. I appreciate Wonder Woman's connection to Mera, she tries to sympathize and I'm always excited to see women superheroes supporting each other, we can always see more. As well as super buff women? A-double-plus! However, it would be wonderful if the writers could become more familiar with each character. I'll still look forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jul 5, 2017

    Another odd-numbered week, another throwaway issue of Justice League. This one at least has the benefit of tying into an excellent, recently-begun arc in Aquaman; but on the flip side, it has the benefit neither of Stjepan Sejic's artwork nor the sort of storytelling space afforded to Abnett in his main book. There are things to enjoy here, but they come in small doses, and there aren't enough of them to make this particularly memorable. If you've got money and time to spare, check it out. Otherwise, you aren't missing much if you pass. Read Full Review
