Let's take a trip to "Hawkworld" in part one of a new Totality-related storyline! Martian Manhunter, John Stewart and Hawkgirl avoided "Drowned Earth" with a detour to Thanagar-Prime: J'onn looks to tap into the ancient Martian mental database, GL struggles while practicing his new UV powers, and Kendra searches for answers about her connection to the Totality.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 19, 2018

    Snyder in particular has been smart about not abandoning characters from the pre-Flashpoint and New 52 era. That really comes into play this issue with the shocking return of a character no one saw coming. Justice League continues to show that DC finally has the right creative team on the book with fun and exciting adventures that show no sign of slowing down. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Jan 2, 2019

    The creative team did wonders for this new storyline, especially focusing on Leaguers that arent usually in the spotlight. The art is fantastic and the story is filled with intrigue and mystery. Its a great chapter and if you havent been reading Justice League, maybe nows the time. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Raphael Soohoo Dec 19, 2018

    Tynion and Snyder team up to tell an intriguing mystery on Thanagar Prime. Nothing is as it seems. Cheung's art is brief but great; Segovia does a very good job with the bulk of the art duties. Read Full Review

It is great to see what Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, and John Stewart have been up to since we last left them. Part one will have most people interested to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    If you missed Hawkgirl, John Stewart, and Martian Manhunter the past few issues, this story is here to make sure it was all worth it. The Secret ofHawkworld provides new history, fragmented origins and some deep, dark secrets that promise to make this arc a linchpin of the overarching story Snyder and Co. are crafting.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 19, 2018

    Justice League #14 is an issue worth looking forward to when we are getting back to the mystery of the Totality. Side stories and Drowned Earth were cool, but this is where our investment in this book truly lies. So far, “Hawkworld” has flipped everything you thought you knew about the Hawkman/Hawkgirl history right on its head. In a good way of course. Nothing ventured, nothing gained for these heroes.

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Dec 20, 2018

    After the non-stop action of the previous story arcs, the slower pace of this issue was a nice respite before things get crazy again next issue. Snyder and Tynion have certainly re-established the Justice League core title as DC's foremost team book. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Dec 21, 2018

    After so many issues focused on "Drowned Earth", Justice League #14 feels fresh in its shift in focus. It's nice to finally see what Martian Manhunter, Jon Stewart, and Hawkgirl had been up to on Thanagar. Justice League continues in its excellence, as Snyder's story slowly unfolds into a cosmic epic that will surely impact the DCU for years to come. Give this one a read. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Terrence Sage Dec 19, 2018

    Justice League #14 focuses on a different kind of a trio of our heroes that finally begins to uncover the secrets of the Multiverse and what it means for them. The story from Snyder and Tynion puts the spotlight back on previous locations seen in Metal and events of the current Justice League run, making everything feel apart of the grand design the writers have in place. With art from Segovia and Cheung that gives their respective section the unique feeling they deserve, the issue sets up the adventure on Hawkworld quite nicely. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 19, 2018

    The opening and closing give this issue pop, but it's hard to totally love the issue when the rest is slow and lengthy in its delivery. If you're interested in the Totality and the larger story you're going to need to read this. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Dec 19, 2018

    Scott Snyder's breaks from Justice League always remind me how good it is when he's on. Tynion doesn't quite maintain Snyder's level of quality in dialogue, but he still tells a pretty good story, the artwork is great, and I enjoyed Justice League #14 overall. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 19, 2018

    This issue puts the breaks on the story by dumping information at the reader and while some of it was needed, some of it just gummed up the works.  The art and cliffhanger were great, but the story leading up to it was not. Read Full Review

    This issue was slightly above average. I wasn't quite so lost in the monotony of exposition as I have been in previous arcs. The characters were interesting enough for the 20 or so pages I had to read of them. It was all fine. I don't have any excitement about this series though.

    This issue was everything I want out of a Justice League title.

    Snyder and friends are making the DCU more expansive than it's ever been before. And I particularly love the "all bets are off" when it comes to otherwise retired/limbo-bound characters and history.

    This issue reminded me of nothing so much as why Justice League has always been my favorite comic book, though it's been quite rare that it's been this grand or this great. This is what I've always wanted JL(A) to be.

    Profound personal dynamics and deep character work abound in this issue.

    I talked to a friend that works at my favorite LCS who said something like "it's like they're facing the end of the world with every issue." He didn't s more

    This was alright but a little exposition-y for my tastes, and I feel a little bit like I’m losing my grip on just what is happening a lot of the time.

    -There was one good character moment for Manhunter. One.

    THE BAD:

    -Well, this review is going to be a short one, because I stopped caring about the issue very early on, and didn't really give a crap for the remaining pages. Silly me.

    -Steven Segovia's art was okay, but it didn't really live up to Jim Cheung, who I thought was doing the whole issue, or most of he other artists on this series, like Manapul or Jiminez.

    -I also didn't know Tynion wrote this issue, but I found that out, which quickly explained the incredibly boring exposition that plagued this issue.

    -The issue in general was just boring. No moments excited me, nothing really provoked anything in me, more

    I wish i was a fly on the wall at the DC offices to know why the hell Jim Cheung is drawing only three pages in this issue. Do they have a big Justice League saga that hes working on and dont have the time to draw a full 20 pages book? The other artist is not bad. Dont get me wrong. but for me its either one guy in a 20-23 pages book or nothing.

    As for the story, im really glad Scott Snyder decided to give the Hawks their time to shine. Since Metal, Hawkman got his own ongoing series and Hawkgirl is crushing on the JL book!


    So, im hoping, im really hoping, they didnt brought Starman back just to make him explode and die. That would not be cool, at all!

    Just when you think you're going to have a nice time at the party with the hawks, the host goes savage.
    Good issue. Sets up an interesting mystery regarding Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl, that I'm curious what the answers will be.

    Also, Starman. That should be fun.

    This issue, the art and the writing was on the same level. Both had some good moments and both had had some eh awful. The art in the beginning was pretty weak then got better. The writing was good then got confusing. They really like to pack it in for this issue!
