    I'll be cautiously optimistic with this one based on the book's past, but Hitch has a good thing starting and I'm hopeful it remains a compelling read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 2, 2017

    This is my favorite issue of Bryan Hitch's Justice League and it makes me happy to say that.  I loved seeing the future of the DCU and the children of the Justice League seem pretty cool.  Fernando Pasarin's art was great and while I don't think those who dropped this book need to jump back on just yet, those who stuck it out may just be rewarded with a good final arc.  Fingers crossed.

    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Aug 4, 2017

    This arc certainly has me interested and hooked to keep reading, particularly as the philosophical debate appears to be coming up: what does the Justice League actually change by saving the day from alien invasions, but not stepping into human conflicts? Should the heroes do more than just preserve the status quo? Will it be their inaction or a decision to take action that causes this dark future reality? Read Full Review

    A good opening salvo to a story that is taking too much time to get going. Read Full Review

    So I went into this pretty begrudgingly, but I waspleasantly surprise. Even though a portion of it is very Hitchy, and has beenplayed out a couple thousands times, the story itself was pretty good. I likeseeing that some of the previous stories are finding a place, and it's not 100%confusing. Even though I actually liked this story, Hitch still left me with amillion questions. But hopefully this straightforward story-telling will stick around... Read Full Review

    I'm personally very divided on this issue, which I think is impressive. I want to see where the story goes yet I'm hesitant to the very idea of these characters hating their parents. The art was quite fantastic and I'm cautiously looking forward to the rest of this story. Read Full Review

    There's definitely the makings of a great Justice League Story in this issue. Hopefully, the subsequent chapters of this storyline will realize that potential, but we shall have to wait and see. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Aug 7, 2017

    It is very much Justice League: The Next Generation, as the story here is fantastic. Hitch brings his A-game to the table and Pasarin, Albert and Anderson have done a brilliant job at bringing the Justice League of the future to life, in a story that really goes for the 'epic' feel of what a Justice League book should be and so far, it delivers.

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Aug 4, 2017

    I do not have much else to say except that I definitely want to continue reading to see how this story pans out. I will give this issue a 3.5 out of 5 batarangs. I am not a big fan of the art but I am willing to stick with this story to see where it ends up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Aug 3, 2017

    I was, frankly, glad to read that Hitchs run on Justice League is coming to an end. The presence of the Infinity Building in this story indicates that he has been working to some master plan, some over-arching storyline which is about to come to a conclusion. What distresses me are the hints that Hitch will be helming a new Justice Society series. Read Full Review

    A predictable setup that, hopefully, leads to a more fleshed out story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 3, 2017

    I'm not thrilled with the direction Hitch seems to be pushing Wonder Woman, as it runs completely against the grain of the character as she exists in DC Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Issue #25 wasn't a bad piece of work! I was finding Hitch a wonderful writer, and he still must be. Writing new characters in a world with very stable, decades-old characters can be tricky. It disturbs a balance, so this issue felt a bit disconnecting. In addition, the art differs from modern versions of the Justice League. Greatly talented, however, an eerie combination as those older versions of heroes looked unrealistic. I hope this arc improves, the story has a great entertaining idea and a good team behind it, with the Justice League film around the corner, a spectacular story would wicked to have!

    On Comics Ground - Robert Struble Aug 10, 2017

    Theres nothing new with this issue. Its decent enough, but weve seen this done before. Hard to say if Hitch will do it better than writers before him, but for now, this issue just felt a little flat to me. Still, the pacing was good, and some of the scenes were fantastic, so its worth a read. Just dont expect to be blown away. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 6, 2017

    Justice League #26 is the first issue in Bryan Hitch's run that felt like a risk. While the setting and some of the characters are intriguing the full execution of the story did leave something to desired. Rather than being fascinating new characters, the new children of the Justice League all came off as basic superheroes due to the weak dialogue from Hitch. That leaves a lot of work for Hitch to do in future parts of the "Legacy" arc to make the new characters and world fan favorites. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Aug 2, 2017

    A brand new pack of flat characters can't rescue Justice League's latest trek through time. It has a few interesting elements poorly realized, and the artwork is a mixed bag, soI can't say I'm looking forward to the next one. I recommend you pass on this issue"and this arc"and wait for November. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Justin Swenson Aug 2, 2017

    don't know if I am more disappointed that this issue was terrible, or that it's part one in a multi-part series. I just don't get this issue, I hope the Justice League gets canceled at this point, I have lost all hope. Read Full Review
