    Comic Crusaders - Shawn Warner Dec 7, 2018

    This issue is so much more than the sum of its individual parts, while each scene is spectacular in and of itself as a complete work this issue succeeds beyond that. The confrontation between Lex and the Joker is intense, but it's what is beneath that and the elements at work just out of sight that defines and enhances every panel of this issue and raises the stakes into the stratosphere, Under Scott Snyder's inspired vision and the brilliant collaborative effort of James Tynion IV the Justice League has become what it always should be, one of the best comic books to hit the racks on any given Wednesday. 5/5 Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Dec 5, 2018

    This was a fascinating break from the normal Justice League story, which gives a unique look at the Joker. He's been shown as evil, murderous, and even sometimes a comedic buffoon. But this issue shows that despite his insanity, he has a brilliance that can outpace Lex Luthor's Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Dec 8, 2018

    I have consistently been impressed with this new volume of Justice League. Drowned Earth was handled very well, and having a Legion of Doom issue before turning the book back over to the titular team was a very good idea. It immerses the reader back into the main storyline, and gets us all revved up for where the story is going to go next. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 5, 2018

    This series has been a delight and this issue delivers. The narrative here comes as a bit of a surprise, revealing why Joker has been so subdued while wrapping all that into a Lex vs. Joker battle for the ages. You will come away respecting Joker a hell of a lot more. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 5, 2018

    If anyone thought it was too risky to give you a villain's story within a heroes story? Justice League #13 says otherwise to that notion. I'm calling it now that this is probably the best issue that we have gotten out of this book so far. It is genius in the way that two of the very best villains could test their metal against one another. You knew how it was going to end for The Joker, but that didn't stop every obstacle and line of wit from him to rock you to the core. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Dec 5, 2018

    Justice League #13 gives us one of the darkest issues of the series as the Joker reveals his true reasoning for joining the Legion of Doom. The answer shouldn't shock you, but it is kind of funny. Remember, everything's all one big joke. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Dec 5, 2018

    Justice League #13 is easily Tynion's best issue on the book. Paired with March and Prianto's glorious take on the Joker, this is a highly entertaining showdown between two of DC's most sinister villains. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 5, 2018

    It's back to the bad guys' point of view and while it's not all hunky dory with the Legion of Doom, it made for some fun reading.  The art and story were both impressive and this issue has me back on the Justice League trolley! Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Dec 6, 2018

    My only real problem with this issue is how quick Joker split from the Legion Of Doom, yes the writing was on the wall and super villains rarely stay together long but I just loved his insanity mixed in wit the rest of the L.O.D. I'm sure this was mostly Snyder's call to have Joker discover that The Batman Who Laughs has been released but for me personally it felt to soon for it to happen. Other wise, this issue was amazing. I'm glad that every so often the Justice League book becomes a Legion of Doom book, it's nice to have a peak at evil every once in a while. Stellar issue. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Dec 6, 2018

    Justice League #13 is a nice change of pace. Although "Drowned Earth" was fairly well executed, the multiple storylines were taxing and at times convoluted. Justice League #13 is fairly straightforward in its composition and execution. Tynion's script is fun and fresh. March's art does a great job capturing the tone of the issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Dec 5, 2018

    Snyder may have set the building blocks but Tynion has really given us the depth into the Legion of Doom that we need to make them a feared adversary. The Justice League isnt anywhere to be seen in this issue and thats not a bad thing as Tynion gives us a brilliant Joker who isnt one to mess with! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Dec 7, 2018

    It feels a bit too convenient at times, but it's nice to have issues like this that are complete in the issue itself. I really like dropping in on the Legion of Doom from time to time. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Matthew Mueller Dec 5, 2018

    It was great to see him go one on one with Luthor, but this seems more of a setup for The Batman Who Laughs than a required reading for Justice League fans. Read Full Review
