    GWW - Deron Generally Jan 8, 2019

    Jim Cheung and Stephen Segovia knock it out of the park with the visual in this issue. Not only are the characters drawn with dramatic beauty, but there is a fluidity to how they look on the page, like they are in motion and action throughout. The backgrounds are amazing and one of my favorite panels of this issue is the amazingly detailed depiction of the Thanagarian Vault. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jan 10, 2019

    With the first year Justice League run winding into the next, this series continues to fires on all cylinders and expands upon the already grandiose DC Universe as a whole. Never skipping a beat, issue #16 loos to reveal the secrets of the DCUs origin. Snyder and team propel this series to previously unseen levels. Justice League stands strong as the flagship title from DC Comics making it an absolute must read for all fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 15, 2019

    The main story should be feeling as if it is dragging, or has been abandoned. The major plot threads should feel as if they are getting in the way of the overall arc. But none of that is happening. I'd tip my hat (if I wore one) to the skilled plotting of Snyder and Tynion. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 9, 2019

    The DC Universe is made richer from this series. I'm on board for what is to come because its creators don't hold back. This is far and away one of the most exciting comics on the stands today. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 9, 2019

    With the way this arc has played out I'm kinda hoping Tynion and Scott Snyder put a spotlight on The Flash, Cyborg and Mera as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Jan 15, 2019

    With Snyder and Tynion at the helm and assists from the fantastic artwork from Cheung, Morales, and Segovia, Justice League proves itself to be worthy of being the flagship title of DC, giving us the epic stories weve come to expect. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Jan 9, 2019

    After coming from the very disappointing Drowned Earth, the team here hits the ground running. Already two issues into this arc, and it is becoming a must read. The ability to pull off a story centered around the continuity of Hawkman is an amazing feat. Snyder and Tynion IV are building toward something special here and you should not miss it.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 9, 2019

    overall, Justice League #15 takes us to a point where this story picks up momentum and a true sense of urgency. We all knew that there was much more to this planet than what we were seeing on the surface, and the reveal did not disappoint. Neither has the pacing which hasn't left us in too much suspense.

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Jan 11, 2019

    We get a lot of momentum here in this issue, the standout being the Ocean's Eleven-style heist that permeates the entire book. The team-up of these three characters and their stepping into the spotlight was welcome to JL readers. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Jan 13, 2019

    Justice League #15reads like an addictive drug: by the end of the issue, you are going to want more. For those who are worried that the “Escape From Hawkworld” story would simply be a filler arc, lacking in relevance, let this put your mind at ease. This issue is yet again proof that Snyder and Tynion have major plans for their tenure on Justice League that will have cosmic implications for the DCU moving forward. Give it a read folks.

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jan 9, 2019

    The various threads of the current Justice League title seem to be coming together, and it's clear that Snyder and Tynion have been planning something big. This has all the makings of a truly epic story. But if it falls flat, it could also be an epic disappointment, but so far they seem to be pulling it off. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Jan 15, 2019

    Justice League #15 is another quality read. This title continues to be one of the best mainstream super hero titles on the market. Period. Snyder and Tynion are weaving an incredible tale that is sure to become a classic years from now. This is a comic that is worth your hard-earned money. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 9, 2019

    We get some big questions, but also so big answers in this issue.  After a middle section that was weighed down by some over exposition, the pace picks up by the end and has me excited for the next issue.  I can't ignore the pacing issue here, but I still went away feeling positive about this book.

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jan 9, 2019

    Justice League #15 could be a lot better, but it's still not bad. Scott Snyder's master plotting goes a long way toward redeeming this one, and even though I don't care for much of Tynion's dialogue, this is, for the most part, competently written. Segovia isn't the headliner we expected on this book, but his storytelling is solid, and in a market full of comics, this is still closer to the top end of the stack. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 10, 2019

    This is a fun story that's clearly winging into the next one in a big way, as Snyder is wont to do, but you'd be forgiven for feeling like this one is all a little over your head. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Williamson Jan 9, 2019

    A somewhat unremarkable issue that advances the plot a little but doesn't contain any particularly stellar moments, but overall the run is still a step up from the other Rebirth Justice League runs. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Jan 9, 2019

    While this issue wasn't a home run, there's still enough here to be enjoyed. If anything the final pages of this issue will most likely either freak you out (me) or will have sweating with anticipation over to this new mysterious threat that's come about due to the League's new status within the multiverse. Now if you'll excuse me I need to hide underneath my blanket. Read Full Review
