    The League are put through their paces by villains with their unique abilities and the mind of a Bruce Wayne without mercy. A great tie-in. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Nov 6, 2017

    All in all, Justice League #32 is a fine chapter in the Bats Out of Hell story, even if it feels a bit too convenient. Taken by itself or in the context of the grander Metal tale, its a fun read with some bizarre concepts leveraged for shock and awe. Im curious to see where the rest of this storyline goes, which is exactly where I should be right now. Read Full Review

    This issue definitely reads like a middle chapter, but it does its part to enrich the events of Metal. Read Full Review

    Robert Venditti writes a solid second issue that shows interaction between the Justice League and their dark mirrors incredibly well. The only problem is it feels decompressed throughout the issue. Read Full Review

    An exciting action-packed adventure that pits each Leaguer against their ultimate foe: a villain with their own powers, but the cunning and skill of the goddamn Batman. Read Full Review

    This isnt the most essential Metal tie-in, but Sharps art makes it worth picking up. Read Full Review

    This comic book is a bit semi climatic. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 5, 2017

    Despite being a waypoint in this tie-in story, Justice League #32 does succeed in being a fun read that keeps me invested in this part of Metal. The set-up is cool, the characters are allowed space to do their thing, and the art is fantastic. This one manages to earn a recommendation. Give it a try. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Nov 1, 2017

    As much as I appreciate the respect shown to Victor Stone, and as much as I love seeing Liam Sharp draw a majority of the Justice League,Justice League #32 is just okay. Venditti's central metaphor doesn't quite work for me, and it often feels forced. Unfortunately, this makes Victor come across as someone who thinks he knows more than he actually does, which is an inversion of his character. Still, this is a major bump up from recent adventures inJustice League, so I'll gladly take “just okay” for now. Read Full Review

    Al in all a very good story married with very good art that keeps the arc story moving right along in a smooth way. Read Full Review

    Could've been stronger. Made some missteps. All in all, a slightly above average book. If youre not already reading Dark Nights Metal, you can skip it, but if youre a fan of all things Metal, then this book is definitely worth reading. Read Full Review

    Liam Sharp's artwork looks great but there's not much "there" there in Robert Venditti's script. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 1, 2017

    The Bats Out of Hell story continues and nothing here can convince me that this story is important.  While the first issue of the story was mostly recap, this entry is just a bunch of fights strung together to make an issue.  I loved the art, but that's about it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Nov 1, 2017

    I'd wholeheartedly recommend this issue based on the art alone but the story is so very weak. This might be the worst written issue of this event yet, which is a shame since I've been enjoying a large amount of the output. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Nov 3, 2017

    Though Venditti and especially Sharp provide detail and character moments for all of the available Justice League members, ultimately this middle section of the story falls pretty flat due to repetitive structure and lack of any narrative progress. Read Full Review
