"JUSTICE LOST" part four! As public confidence in the League continues to fall, strained relationships within the team are set aside when Simon Baz is kidnapped by the mysterious figure known as the Fan: a zealous Justice League acolyte who was inspired by the team as a youth and who now deals death to the League's enemies. The Fan knows literally every detail about the League membership's powers and tactics, and easily turns their own systems and resources against them "for their own good."

    I love Justice League arcs where the League has to go against the American government. When done right, I find these issues often lead to interesting, important conversations about what a superhero's role is supposed to be in the universe of the comic. Read Full Review

    Priest, Briones, and Eltaeb bring another powerful issue of Justice League that leaves me thinking and with a lot to talk about. All the while, the creative team still manages to keep its characters straight and well-represented. The art is strong. The overall book leaves an impact. Im left really looking forward to where it goes from here. I highly recommend this issue. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jan 17, 2018

    All in all, Justice League continues to be pretty solid. I'm happy to finally know who's causing the League so many problems. But what makes me even more hype is thinking about how when the League stops this new adversary, the world's disdain for it will be even more amplified. It really hammers home the duality of a hero. Yeah, the League is in a position of privilege. That's the only word to describe someone who gets to chill in the Watchtower, but that privilege comes with a burden. I'm happy to see that things aren't gonna be resolved by simply shifting the blame onto an adversary. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jan 17, 2018

    Despite this apparent continuity error, this storyline is proving to be a refreshing change for Justice League. The title was starting to feel a bit tired and repetitive, but Priest has managed to reinvigorate the title. Read Full Review

    Priests run has taken shape and Im liking what Im seeing. Still room for improvement, but the commentary on celebrities is great to read and for the first time in a long time, Im looking forward to the next Justice League issue! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Joanna Robinson Jan 18, 2018

    I'll admit, I'm a big Green Lantern fan myself. Got two giant shelves on my wall of JUST Green Lantern Universe figures and merch and they fill the majority of my Graphic Novel shelves. Hal Jordan is my boy. But dressing like him and trying to kill people isn't my thing. Priest's writing is a joy in this issue to read between the little bits of comedy and the serious notes of the Fan and his mindset. It's creepy yet makes total sense. There is also something about the artwork this issue (not that it was bad in other issues with Pete Woods) that seems to really stand out. But most importantly, it comes down to the major question of how is the League going to deal with someone like The Fan? It has to be a question most fan's of the comic universe have had and now the League must answer it! Read Full Review

    The People vs. Justice League lost some momentum this issue, but not nearly enough to concern me about the overall state of the arc. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jan 18, 2018

    Another downgrade from the preceding issue, Justice League #37is still entertaining. An interesting villain overcomes his inconsistent voice, and the stand-in team of Briones and Eltaeb do a respectable job while Woods is out. I wish it was better, but it's a decent book, and worth a few reads. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 17, 2018

    This was a confusingly written and off issue. While my appreciation for this run has diminished with the release of each issue, I still see a nugget of an overall story here that Priest is telling, and he needs to return to that initial hook in order to win me over. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 17, 2018

    While I know that Priest plays the slow burn game in his books, I am struggling to get into this series after the first three issues.  This issue is full of transition problems which throw the overall pace off and in the end, I am less interested in the villain now that we know more about him.  The art was good, but I need something to spark my interest in this story and I need it quick.
