    Its also nice to see a real emotional core in this story. While the other kids may be focused on killing Wonder Woman, Serenity is spending time with her mom, Mera. Once Arthur breaks up the family reunion, we see that hes not completely lost. Hes still got a soft spot for Mera. Could his fondness for his wife be his undoing? Im excited to see how this all plays out. Read Full Review

    With Legacy coming to a climax, I excitedly recommend Justice League this week. The story continues to get better, and you should most certainly pick it up. Read Full Review

    In yet another awesome issue of this series, Hitch and Pasarin amp up the tension as well as the action. While I would have liked to see more of the children in this issue, the other plotlines kept me interested and I can't wait to see where the story goes from here. Read Full Review

    Hitch has set several interesting events for a strong home stretch. I really wish Hitch was bringing this level of storytelling consistently and had Pasarin handling art from the beginning. This feels like the Justice League we wanted all along. Read Full Review

    The Legacy arc continues to impress me and for those that have yearned for more action, this may be the issue that wins you over as well.  The art, story and action scenes are really good this week and the cliffhanger sets up more for next issue.  I know I will be back and I suggest that anyone who dropped this book earlier, come back for this arc.   Read Full Review

    Overall: Justice League #29 was an enjoyable read. Hitch delivers an issues that treats the reader to an excellent combination of strong character work, good dialogue and exciting action. Justice League #29 delivers exactly what I expect from a mainstream super hero comic. This story arc keeps getting better with each issue. The reader certainly gets their money's worth with this issue. Read Full Review

    I cant say this issue is as good as the previous two, but its still miles above what had come before this storyline, and continues to bode well for the remainder of it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Sep 21, 2017

    On the writing front, the story is still a little iffy. The Justice League's kids aren't the easiest characters to sympathize with when they're trying to murder one of their parents. But the bigger problem here is that Hitch hasn't quite hit the epic notes that he's going for. Read Full Review

    All the pieces are on the board it is now up to Hitch to bring it all together. The overall pace of Legacy has been a little slow so far but this issue delivered some great character moments. Hitch and Pasarin have delivered an issue that shows the promise of Legacy becoming a great Justice League tale. Despite the pace of the overall story this issue is a satisfying read.

    Its a step above what came before. And while still has its major flaws, this is the first exciting issue of this arc. The first one thats kept me wanting more. And now Sovereign, the best part of #26, is poised to make an entrance with most of the League incapacitated. For the first time, Im eagerly awaiting the next issue. Read Full Review

    The overall story is getting better, but the kids are still not at the point where I should care what happens to them and frankly, I'm more interested in the story around their scenes. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Sep 20, 2017

    A modest improvement over earlier installments, Justice League #29 nevertheless suffers from being part of an inferior whole. The tension of battle makes it more readable, but the overarching tensions feels uninflated and, consequently, flat. Pick this up if you're among the faithful; otherwise, you're better off waiting for the changing of the guard. Read Full Review
