"STATE OF FEAR" part two! In the conclusion to this story, a new threat that manipulates the fears of its victims has turned the Justice League against each other, and only heroes trained to overcome fear-Green Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz-can save Earth's greatest heroes from themselves!

    The good news is that this series has improved markedly in its second story arc. Credit that to the fact that these issues pace far less emphasis on spectacle, instead using the rise of a mysterious, fear-based villain to explore several key character dynamics. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - John White Oct 19, 2016

    Robert Venditti’s second arc as writer of Justice League is a short one, but it is all the more powerful because of it. He brings forth the idea that despite all the power and bravado, these people are just as susceptible to doubt and fear as the rest of us. It is always a risk when you right a story where Batman and Superman, as well as others, are shown in a negative light and never really get the chance to redeem themselves, but it does point to what kind of stories Venditti wants to tell. Although the names are familiar, this is a very different League than we are used to. They do not trust each other, themselves, or even the world they have sworn to protect. The choices one member makes in this issue will shake the foundations of the team for issues to come and the inner demons they face in this issue will without a doubt leave them all scarred in ways we cannot yet imagine.

    The ending with Jessica Cruz is the only aspect that I didn't enjoy, as it feels way to early and cliche for Jessica to leave. I highly doubt she's gone for good but it feels like a false cliff hanger. For a two part arc this was a well written and well drawn issue of Justice League. A vast improvement over the first arc indeed. Read Full Review

    Justice League #7 helps us understand all the character's fears with only progresses the story at a snail's pace. Read Full Review

    I'm not quite ready to give up on this series yet - but I don't know how much longer I'll be able to say that. Read Full Review

    Hitch ends the issue on an uncertain note making it unclear if the story arc is over or continuing next issue. A bigger question perhaps is whether it's worth looking forward to the next issue either way. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Oct 19, 2016

    The issue has a lot of good ideas and some nice scenes but is ultimately too analytical without being enough of a story first. It feels more like a term paper on the Justice League. However, the art is strong and I do like what Bryan Hitch is setting up. I recommend waiting for the trade on this one. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 18, 2016

    Justice League #7 gets to the core of each of the heroes via fear, which is a unique and interesting perspective. It's entertaining enough, though it ends at out of nowhere and has quite a few problems with plot and dialogue. Read Full Review

    This series is turning out to be a huge disappointment, the plot is a mess and it's only saving grace seems to be the smaller character moments. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 19, 2016

    After a decent start, Bryan Hitch gives us an ill defined story, some forced moments and a whole lot of nothing.  This issue confirms that Hitch does not know how to end a story and because of that, I give this issue a certain score that nobody wants. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Selby Oct 21, 2016

    This is a book that continues to fall down in the writing. Hitch has had a good year with most of these characters and it appears that he's just not up to the task. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Oct 19, 2016

    Justice League #7 offers an unsatisfactory conclusion to a mercifully-short arc. There's far too much text, and much of it consists in unbearable whingeing. Substandard artwork doesn't ruin what is already a storytelling failure, but neither does it help. If you're on the fence and reading this review hoping to be swayed one way or the other, let me save you the time and the three bucks by telling you to steer clear of this one. Read Full Review
