    Things are beginning to wrap up in this arc. There's still some gas in the tank but we've entered the third act. I've liked this run a lot since the beginning, but this was one of my favorite issues so far. It had a little bit of everything. Action, commentary, and humor. And it was all balanced really well. It also capitalizes on the Black Panther craze by centering a story in Africa. Not that it was intentional, but it can only help. Read Full Review

    I'm excited for Snyder's run, but damn, will he have to work hard to top this one. Read Full Review

    Priest has done an amazing job with this arc. The action often takes a backseat to the moral quandaries our heroes are placed in. What's the right thing to do in all of these situations? And the truth of the matter is that there's simply no easy answer. Read Full Review

    Politics seems to have become a dirty word in comic books. It shouldnt be. As with any medium, powerful stories, commenting on contemporary issues, can be told as enjoyable, wild romps. Priest is doing that with his run on Justice League, and doing it well. Read Full Review

    Justice League #41 continues Priests excellent run on the title, bringing in big themes and handling them skillfully. It's well worth a read. Read Full Review

    A really good story that is expanding on some interesting concepts. Needs to really hit home in a big way at its conclusion. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Mar 23, 2018

    Priest has managed to put the League into a situation quite unlike any they've faced before, with political pressures, internal pressures, and a villain who uses their secrets to his own advantage. So far, this is an intriguing new direction for the League and I look forward to see where it leads. Read Full Review

    Another issue with so much going on its hard to keep things straight. A lot of referring back to previous issues so if you missed one you might be lost even in its subtlety. Read Full Review

    There's a lot to like here, but right now the story feels as if it has some dead weight, and the sooner it can get rid of that the better. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Mar 21, 2018

    Justice League #41 attempts to tackle a topic worth apprehending, but I contend that it misses. Gross mischaracterization of established characters, clunky “localized” dialogue, and missing context make for a difficult read, and the capable artwork can only carry my experience so far. If you've enjoyed this story, by all means, continue. But if you're on the outside wondering what you've been missing, move along. There's nothing for you here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 20, 2018

    It's more of the same with this issue of Justice League, where our heroes just come off looking like pieces of shit for not knowing how to deal with situations that they're not accustomed to and because of that.......... and the Watchtower crashing down to Earth that the people's perspective on our heroes have diminished even more......... including myself.  The art in this issue is enjoyable, but the overall feel of this book has become something that I dread reading every time it comes out.

    With Justice League: No Surrender right around the corner, this run continues to be unimpressive and spins its wheels as readers are left waiting for the next run to begin in June. Read Full Review
