"JUSTICE LOST" part three! Footage of a major Justice League failure ends up on an extremist website, going viral across social media and prompting a Congressional investigation of the team. As public debate explodes over America's trust in the Justice League, the team faces a crisis of confidence in Batman and his methods, which ultimately highlights fractures within the team over civil rights and methodology.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 8, 2018

    Of course I recommend this. Justice League #36 is one of the most insanely daring comics to come out of the Big Two in years. Its brilliant, unnerving, and insanely compelling all at the same time. You need to read this. If you like superheroes and wonder what their limits are, this is the encyclopedia of their limits. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Its a blast turning the pages of Justice League and legit being surprised by the developments and curious how stories are going to play out. Priest keeps challenging expectations making for a very different and very engaging take on the team. Read Full Review

    Within only a three issues so far, Priest has breathed new life into Justice League. The League continues to fight the usual threats, but looming legal threats and a crisis of faith give the story a new dimension. And the threat posed by the ersatz Batman promises a thrilling conflict as the "Justice Lost" storyline continues. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jan 2, 2018

    This was a solid issue that doubled down on the conflict and even added a new layer. The League is bickering with each other and the world doesn't want their help anymore. They've hit rock bottom. Which means next issue is the start of the rise. With this killer on the lose, maybe they'll finally have something to punch. Read Full Review

    Hands-down the best League run we've gotten in a while. Read Full Review

    What I like the most about this issue is that I don't know where it's going and the relationship drama it's creating along the way. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Jan 4, 2018

    The points of the congresswoman at the beginning of this issue set the tone. It's going to be a rough one, not just physically but mentally. It is the perfect way to really get the team to start to break apart with some clearly on Bruce's side and some not. It all goes back to the age-old question some people have with Superhero's: Should They, or Shouldn't They? It's also interesting to see how the team feels and their reasoning's without breaking their character's like some other comics have done. And it more importantly gets the reader thinking.

    Comic Crusaders - Jamin Pierson Jan 8, 2018

    With these ingredients, it had a recipe for success, and I really hope the story continues in this direction. Out of all the many threats, the Justice League have faced, none may be as scary as"the people. Read Full Review

    JUSTICE LEAGUE #36 continues a solid, but thematically familiar, arc. Highlights of the issue include the art, directorial choices, and an intriguing cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Matthew Mueller Jan 3, 2018

    The last few issues of Justice League have been some of the best since Rebirth launched, and while the copycat narrative is interesting on its own, the dynamics and dysfunction between the heroes is what makes this book so hard to put down. If you've been waiting to give Justice League a go, your wait is over. Read Full Review

    GearWERKZ - Agasicles Stamas Jan 7, 2018

    First-comers looking for something a bit more 21st century may want to wait and check out DC's New Age of Heroes books, simply because this Justice League, for me, feels close to the classics, but not quite there, and so investigation of something new might be warranted. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jan 4, 2018

    The weakest issue of this arc so far, Justice League #36 suffers from several mischaracterizations. It's still a decent read, and with Woods's excellent artwork and Schu's solid letters, you may find the problems don't bother you quite as much. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Feb 2, 2018

    After two lackluster issues, Priest finally starts to show us what his mark will be. He tackles a topic thats been done before, but possibly not with as much depth and Justice League is finally getting interesting! Read Full Review

    Pete Woods, still doing a monumentally impressive task of pencils, inks, and colors, continues to provide top-notch artwork for this incredibly complicated story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jan 4, 2018

    There's definitely room for a story about the Justice League being taken to task for some very public failures, or a Batman imitator ruining the team's good name with a willingness to murder the League's most prominent critic. But there is something off about the characterization of the heroes that makes it very difficult to enjoy this. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 3, 2018

    While I really enjoyed the art in this issue, the doom and gloom is just oppressive as hell as we watch our Justice League heroes become shells of their former selves........ and really, just not likable.  Overall, this arc has interesting ideas, I just wish that it would get to the point faster because I don't know how much more of this deconstruction of the Justice League that I can take.

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 3, 2018

    I'm not a fan of this issue. Not much is explained and Aquaman felt really out of character. Priest chose to focus on the wrong things which really detracted from my enjoyment. Woods' art almost makes up for it, but I can't shake off the flaws. Read Full Review
