    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jun 20, 2018

    In the wake of Metal and No Justice, Justice League appears to be the core book of what DC is calling the “New Justice” family, which will also contain Justice League Odyssey, Justice League Dark, and Titans. For better or worse, this puts this title at the forefront of the DCU. And based on the first two issues, I think we're in for a hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jul 2, 2018

    While implementing one new concept after the next and building to the overall landscape of the DC universe, Snyder and Jimenez expertly craft a developed Justice League run for the ages. As more titles continue to spin out from Justice League: No Justice in July, Snyders flagship title remains at the top of readers pull lists this summer. Read Full Review

    So ... whew ... that's a lot of story in 20 pages. I love it!!! After complaining for so long about decompressed story-telling, it is refreshing and invigorating to read compressed issues! Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Jun 20, 2018

    JUSTICE LEAGUE #2 is loads of fun from start to finish. It captures the essence of Silver Age DC books while also adding something fresh to the mix. Scott Snyder embraces the ridiculousness of superhero comics, to the book's benefit. Jorge Jimenez backs this up with fantastically stylized art that fits the plot to a T. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jun 23, 2018

    A fantastic jumping on point for new readers, the new Justice League series is top notch across the board, setting up events that could effect the DC universe as a whole, or serve to show how the new leagues are formed, either way, I'm really excited for what the future brings!

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jun 20, 2018

    So far, two issues in and this series is everything that's been promised. They swing for the fences, and we reap the benefits. Justice League is epic, personal, mysterious, and authentic. This feels like it's gonna shape up to be a definitive run. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jun 24, 2018

    The existence of the other new Leagues is slightly referenced, enough that it is clear that there will be some overlap between the books, and I suppose between the League and the Titans as well, given the events of the Titans Special. That takes co-ordinating to pull off effectively, but the payouts can be great when it works. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 20, 2018

    This is the kind of Justice League run where it feels like something huge, cosmic, and devastating is coming, and a team like this is truly necessary. It could be too driven by action, but so far Snyder's characterization is top-notch. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Kevin Gunn Jun 23, 2018

    This story is keeping a fast pace. Faster than I initially expected. I was pleased to find out that the book comes out bi-weekly. I can't wait to find out what Snyder (and/or Luthor) has cooked up for the Justice League! Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Jun 20, 2018

    Add in some fun twists like Sinestro and our "favourite" Martian in a place of prominence again and this is definitely my Justice League that when matched with the art of Jorge Jiminez really draws you from start to finish and helps showcase a universe bigger then what we thought with the characters that we all love.

    GWW - Deron Generally Jun 19, 2018

    Snyder has done a great job of telling a big story through the seemingly narrow focus of two characters, Lex and J'onn. I also like that both teams are still dealing with personal and professional issues and the series is setting up some great mysteries, especially with Barry and the Speed Force as well as what Lex really knows and what's he's willing to reveal in his quest for truth. Also, the way the story stays new while reminding readers that it is a progression from Metal to No Justice to Justice League is great. It continues building on a world and characters that readers have embraced since Rebirth. Jimenez' art is stellar and every panel is great to look at both in camera angle and details.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 19, 2018

    Justice League #2 follows up the masterful first issue excellently. The comic is still tons of fun while knowing how to have serious moments. The villains are full of personality. The tantalizing plot is advanced enough so that the comic doesn't feel like it's lagging. The art is unique and great. Hopefully writer Scott Snyder can keep up the great work. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - James Portis Jun 29, 2018

    Justice League #2 is a solid continuation from a powerful first issue. It picks the ball up and builds upon what was already set while not blowing the doors off too early. The interactions with the different members of the league feel great, and with them being the centerpiece of this "New Justice" initiative, they are slowly feeling like the epicenter of the DC universe again and I love it. Combine that with the return of the Legion of Doom, I'm excited for more. This is definitely a good read and it's surely worth the pickup. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 2, 2019

    Justice League is a pretty packed book here with what it does and it's effective. It's not a quick read where you feel like you didn't get your money's worth and there's lots of re-read value in to pick up on clues and just admire the great artwork. I like the look of the book this time around and the character interpretations but I'm not exactly thrilled by the Ultraviolet Lanterns nor the whole Fantastic Journey aspect and what that could portend since it mostly just comes across as goofy in a bad way. But it has potential, I'll admit, and I'm curious to see what it'll do with it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 20, 2018

    While I was initially afraid to read this issue because I wasn't fully on board with what we got for our first installment, this story quickly got me on the trolley with its ideas for what the DCU will look like going forward...or at least until we fix the Source Wall.  Either way, we get some awesome interactions and art throughout this issue and some really cool twists to the Universe you thought you knew.  Check it out.

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jun 20, 2018

    It's not quite as impressive as the first issue, but Justice League #2doesn't have to be, either. Strong writing and expert visual storytelling make for a compelling read, and the focus on Lex Luthor continues to pay dividends. His charismatic arrogance is fun to read and to see. If heroes are only as good as their villains, then the Justice League might just be the best around. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Jun 21, 2018

    Justice League #2 builds on the momentum of the first issue very well as Snyder does some great character work on the heroes and villains and introduces more crazy elements to the story. Jimenez and Sanchez's art is great to just look at whether its a character standing still or mid-movement. It's definitely a promising start to one of DC's flagship titles in this new run.

    Doom Rocket - Brendan F. Hodgdon Jun 22, 2018

    Scott Snyder has been steadily upping his game throughout his tenure at DC, telling more epic stories as he goes. Justice League is a great continuation of this trend; the Morrisonian bombast is colored with Snyder's particular brand of dread and danger, his layered storytelling still unimpeachable. While this second issue does feel like the connective tissue to more consequential chapters, it still does so much so well. Definitely check this series out, folks. It more than earns its status as a tentpole DC title. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Jun 20, 2018

    This feels like the weak issue of a good arc, and with how many storyline elements Snyder has at play at once, there's an incredible number of directions that the story can go from this early point. That, combined with how good the stronger moments of this issue are, make Justice League #2 a fun, if sometimes frustrating read. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Apr 18, 2019

    An interesting sidebar into the origins of the DC Universe. This is a dense comic that will not have you at the edge of your seat, but will fill in some much needed blanks in the Justice League's run. Not all choices seem to benefit the new status quo, but overall this comic shows one step back and a few steps forward. There is more to like here than not. Read Full Review
