    Hitch closes out his run on the title with a great issue. This is most definitely the best non-METAL Justice League story we've had since the Darkseid War. The art was a bit more jumbled than usual but was more than readable. Read Full Review

    The finale to Legacy did not disappoint. Justice League #31 was a fantastic read and wrapped up everything quite well. Give this one a read. I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    JUSTICE LEAGUE #31 lovingly completes the "Legacy" arc with an incredibly illustrated battle sequence. The story was strong throughout, despite some rushed moments, but an unexplained shift in the main villains holds this story back from perfection. Read Full Review

    The last question I am left with is why was Curry wearing a Black Lantern ring? It was mentioned early on and then dropped in the story except he was consistently drawn wearing the ring. Read Full Review

    With a blank slate and characters he can develop without continuity constraints, Id be very interested in a Hitch Legacy series featuring the potential future heroes. Hitchs concepts might play better there since no one has any preconceived notions how Legacy stories should play out. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Oct 20, 2017

    I was totally going with everything. The fights, the secrets revealed, the hate/love relationships going. Even the struggles of the Justice League that these kids represented futures they probably didnt want. I was even down for how they defeated the darkness. To see the kids true powers was very impressive. But I didnt like how fast it ended, the darkness just defeated like that. Then the way they disposed of it, while sad and heartbreaking, seemed like way to easy an answer that was brought up very quickly. I think they left a few things unanswered and that was my only head tilt. Otherwise, I enjoyed it. Seeing the Justice League realize that there is hope for them and their future was reassuring with everything they go through. Read Full Review

    In the end, Hitchs run feels like a lot of build up to nothing. It bothers me that I have been saying that about so many of his issues along the way. I kept trusting that it would all pay off really well. And as legacy got going, I actually thought it would. Read Full Review

    A good conclusion to a story that was not set up well from the beginning with revelations that seem completely out of step with the story itself. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 18, 2017

    The Legacy story is still Hitch's best Justice League arc, but this ending was a bit lack luster.  Mindless action and a cliched and forced ending make it an issue I can't recommend. Read Full Review

    This storyline had all the right ingredients for an epic Justice League story that would have been fitting for Hitch's final bow as the Justice League writer, but instead it fell flat. Let's hope that the new creative team fares better. Read Full Review

    Overall the Legacy arc wasted a thought provoking concept for a smash-em-up fight and no true character progression. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Psychodad Oct 28, 2017

    What was supposed to be Bryan Hitchs magnum opus ends up being a dud. The art is the only part of this book that is inspiring and the rest is just lazy. Its the end of Hitch for the Justice League (kind of, hell be back for two Metal tie-in issues) and he tries to leave us with a fondness for what the future may hold, but any attempt at sentimentality is overshadowed by the poor storytelling.

    The Beat - Kyle Pinion Oct 18, 2017

    It's certainly not what I'd call a terrible run, or issue, or anything close to the torture that we've had to experience with the truly wretched books of Rebirth like Cyborg or Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, but it's just a routinely forgettable book and certainly not what should be representative of the flagship of the entire line.

    A busy, sentimental finish to a run that hasn't earned our sentiment, Justice League #31 feels like one last twist of the knife. I'm relieved that it's over, but even after a year of suffering, I'm still more disappointed than anything else. I loved Hitch's first crack at JLA, and I wanted desperately for him to succeed. I find no joy in reporting his failure. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - steven conroy Oct 20, 2017

    A terrible final issue from a creator who is better than this. 'Legacy' had the makings of a fantastic story but in the end it feels like Bryan Hitch thought of the name and said to himself: "That is a great name for my final arc, Legacy...now, how do I make it work?" Read Full Review

    The top reviewers are hating on this arc, but I think its Hitch best arc so far. Loved the art, it was packed with action and all in all a fun read.

    I was a little worried when I see the page in some First Peek. 1 because it's the last issue for this arc, & this looking like their is a big fight. So I worried about some Deux Ex Machina & a easy quick end. Well yes and no.
    Their is a big fig & a easy win, but all making sense ... But their is some stuff I have a hard time to understand.
    In the start, Sovereign & Cury look really like they want to kill the child. Her they seem like good guys trying to stopping what is happening. So what the point of them be evil at start ?
    The force taking Diana is vanquish in the present, but do she have to come as the first time in the past, but in the futur, when the child will not exist of been missing.
    I happy to watch the Harper/ more
