    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Nov 15, 2017

    Justice League #33 is a visually stunning comic that brings an epic arc to a close. Whether you're up to date with the current state of things at DC, or not, this book is worth picking up; the artwork is that damn good. Read Full Review

    Tyler Kirkham handles most of the art with Mike Janin helping out in the middle chapter. As a big Janin fan, I wish the roles were reversed, but Kirkham did solid work here. Bats Out of Hell started off slowly, but evolved to become another strong side quest from the main story. These Metal tie-ins have definitely proven to be more than time killers until the next installment and I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out. Read Full Review

    The resolution, and the twist that accompanies it, and both fulfilling. And overall I enjoyed this arc, aside from the red lettering. While the main Metal series has me alternately loving and hating what they are doing, the side storylines have been very well crafted to play within the larger arc, and I am tending to enjoy those more.

    With areas of decompression, Justice league manages to delve into Cyborgs subconscious and hopefully make him into a greater asset for the Justice League. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Nov 15, 2017

    This crossover ends on a mostly high note, though I do think it's sole purpose was to simply set up the next issue of the METAL event. It delivered some fairly satisfying character moments as well as extremely cool art by Kirkham and Janin. Read Full Review

    Despite being largely devoted to exposition of Cyborg's powers and setting up the next branch of the crossover, this is an enjoyable little comic. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 16, 2017

    This comic isnt perfect, but it is still the most cohesive and enjoyable of the Bats Out of Hell issues. Cyborg is awesome. Watching him rise to the occasion is engaging, and it has some potential implications for the future of the Justice League. This one earns a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Nov 17, 2017

    Its ties toMetalcut it down a bit in my estimation, but Justice League #33's elevation of Cyborg may well be worth the price of admission. The shared artwork is logically divided, and both teams do an excellent job"though the final battle does leave a bit to be desired. This is a decent full-length comic book that happens to hide an excellent “mini” inside the largerMetal madness. If you've grown weary ofMetal's enormous and convoluted scope, this issue is a refreshing reminder that there are compelling characters in the midst of it all. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Nov 16, 2017

    The ending is a little abrupt, and it leads directly back into Metal without really resolving the "Bats Out of Hell" mini crossover. Still, it was an enjoyable diversion, but not necessarily one that we needed. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 15, 2017

    This was the best of the Bats out of Hell issues because it changed things up and felt like it mattered.  It still had some problems, but the art itself almost made up for them. I wasn't upset even if it wasn't the Hail Mary I was hoping for. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable read, but I can only really recommend this if youre either already reading Justice League (and, like me, too stubborn to put it down), a fan of all things Metal, or a fan of Cyborg. If you werent reading Justice League before now, this one probably wont be enough to make you start. Read Full Review
