    For now, there's enough to keep my interest especially with that final sequence involving Batman and Aquaman. If you'd given up on this title earlier, Legacy is shaping up to be a story worth giving it another chance. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Aug 18, 2017

    Utilizing its slow paced narrative, Bryan Hitch earns JUSTICE LEAGUE #27's high action ending. At the center of this brilliant issue is the characterization. Hitch digs into the heart of the League's core members, as well as their future children. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Aug 18, 2017

    This issue also confirms to me that Hitch is playing off the All-Star Squadron tale that introduced Infinity, Inc. a few decades ago (geez, was it really that long?) Could these kids be a new incarnation of that team? Last issue the thought made me cringe. After this issue, I found myself hoping that would be the case. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 16, 2017

    This is already the best arc we've seen in this series. This is a story I want to see told and I have a genuine trust in Hitch to deliver it to us in spectacular fashion. Pasarin's art is the most appealing its ever been and I look forward to where the story goes based on the small hints Hitch drops. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 16, 2017

    Though the action is really light, this is still a very engaging issue. The children of the Justice League are interesting characters, and their complicated relationships with their parents are very readable. Give this one a read. Its a very smart and expertly constructed comic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 16, 2017

    Where has this story been all my life...or at least during Rebirth?  Bryan Hitch continues to impress me with his final arc by tying up some of his loose ends while also fitting this story squarely into the current continuity.  I am intrigued and looking forward to seeing what happens next.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Aug 23, 2017

    Justice League #27 is a solid but certainly not spectacular read. The $2.99 cover price makes the lack of any substantial plot progression a little less irritating than when it is a $3.99 or #4.99 Marvel comic book. However, the lack of depth to the story and the lack of real plot progression make this issue tough to completely recommend. If you like character drive stories then definitely pick up Justice League #27. However, if you demand a fair amount of action and adventure in your stories then you might not find Justice League #27 worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    This is one of those occasions where the comic may work better in the trade paperback than as a standalone issue. It's good, but it felt like it should have had more. Read Full Review

    Credibility issues are rampant throughout and the characterization of Diana seems way off. Read Full Review

    As an avid comic reader, I can easily suspend belief to enjoy a super-powered story. Still, I cannot accept that in the future the Justice League members only marry and have children with each other. Unfortunately, even that notwithstanding, this has been more of an interesting story than anything previously told in Justice League. I'm just glad they're not fighting aliens again.

    Despite the problems I have with this issue, it still is an interesting premise that promises for an exciting conclusion once the League and their future children face off against Sovereign. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Aug 18, 2017

    Interesting issue, but not as action packed as I would like in a Justice League comic. It gave me more questionable moments than the superhero action I expected especially since the cover alludes to a fight between the two sides. Overall, it is a meh for me. Not great and not terrible at the same time. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Robert Struble Aug 18, 2017

    I already dont like the Junior League. Im seriously unimpressed with Hitchs storytelling here. Im hoping it gets interesting, because I think theres something going on with Hunter and hes the only one I really care about at this point (which is odd because Wonder Woman and Superman were never my favorite of DCs heroes). If I werent stubborn, this book would be enough to make me stop Justice League. But I know they all have bad issues and bad arcs. Im just hoping this isnt indicative of whats to come.

    Dark Knight News - Sharna Jahangir Aug 19, 2017

    This issue feels empty, like realizing how much empty carbs you just ate finishing off a pizza alone. I'm sure it's entertaining to flip through, however, there's no meat pulling us in. I have to admit, I am losing hope for this series, I need something good to come out of it soon. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Aug 16, 2017

    November is coming, butJustice League #27 makes it seem awfully far away. A pile of questionable plot points and a bevy of bizarre character faces makes it impossible to enjoy this one. Give your wallet"and your brain"a break for another few months, and then hop back on when this arc is over. Read Full Review

    Cover - I have take the Variant version and love it 2/2
    Writing - Ok we have a story really really slow. But even if the presentation between the two generation of hero take a huge place, that was for having a beautiful work on the relation of each heroes. I like how Superman and Wonder Woman's Son connect. How Diana sulking. How Barry & Jessica take with humour the fact they will one day have kids together. I like Dori et Mera relation too. And the ending with Batman VS Cury is the best part of this comics. 2/3
    Arts - Well I like the art a lot. I find it perfect. All their look. Their body language. It's a strong art 3/3
    Feelings - Part2 and I want more of it. It's a cool story, with some mystery. The kids didn't tell everyt more

    Nice second issue for this arc some questions were answered but more questions have turned up keeping the story fresh. I am all in for this arc.

    Decent enough for a Hitch written JL issue but again, it feels like it's an elseworld title again and it's ties to the Rebirth continuity still seems unconvincing. I just think it's funny that's Cyborg's son is the result of a half robot and a piece of tech. It's like an iPhone and an AI had a baby... Next up: Hunter's mommy issues...
