    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Apr 3, 2019

    Justice League #21succeeds on so many levels. It's both entertaining and thought-provoking. Amidst the cosmological metafictional bombast, there's an incredibly human story, exploring the morality of justice. Couched in quasi-religious terms, the World Forger's paradise and prison are possible analogs for both heaven and hell. Such binaries force the League to question the nature of Justice and the role it will play in the events to come. Justice League #21is a borderline perfect issue that couples creativity and amusement in a well-crafted narrative. It's by far the best issue in this arc so far. Verdict: if you aren't reading “The Sixth Dimension”, you're missing out. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Apr 3, 2019

    All in all, this book is probably the weirdest mainstream title DC Comics has published since Grant Morrison was allowed to write JLA. It's also probably the best. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 3, 2019

    I'm enjoying what Snyder, Jimenez and Sanchez are doing right now. Justice League hasn't been this much fun in years and it seems like things are only going to heat up in the next few months. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Apr 3, 2019

    Time and time again, this series proves to stand head and shoulders above the competition, in-house and otherwise. Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez bring the heat to the pages and title as a whole leaving fans chomping at the bit for more. Justice League is the premiere team book on the market and perpetually elevates further with every chapter. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Apr 3, 2019

    Justice League #21 gives us a healthy balance of giant imps, uncharacteristic Batman opinions, and overpowered index fingers. It's proven yet again that it's a series that is without a doubt about that life. You better recognize. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Raphael Soohoo Apr 4, 2019

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 3, 2019

    Snyder and Jimenez, and the entire art team, are doing a great job with this arc. Each issue is building and building to a massively larger story and things certainly get really interesting by the end of the issue. I'm looking forward to what's next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 3, 2019

    Scott Snyder is making the Justice League book fun again...as he sends our heroes to hell and back again.  Actually, we'll have to wait for them to get back, but no matter where they go, Jorge Jimenez's art makes it all look fantastic.  The Justice League should always be one of the biggest books out there and Snyder and Jimenez are making it just that!

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 3, 2019

    Some writers do events and normal books, but Scott Snyder appears to have decided that after spinning Justice League out of his last event, he was going to fuse the two and just make this book a never-ending sequence of threats that could easily be an event on their own. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Apr 3, 2019

    Justice League continues into the best arc yet. While the series has had some misses, it is picking up steam here. Without a doubt this is a DC comic you should be reading, and Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez are putting out one of the best books on the stands today. The Sixth Dimension has been fascinating so far and I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Overall I enjoyed this issue and like the path we're on. The stage is becoming more clear as many questions were answered and at the end, and we're left trapped with many questions that I look forward to exploring. The world that Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez have created is one worth taking a deeper look so I truly hope to see more of that shown to us in the issues to come Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Apr 4, 2019

    When reading Scott Snyder's Justice League the joy he has putting together these massive stories is infectious. Even when things get unnecessarily complex the underlying wonderment of what is happening can make the journey well worth it. Justice League #21 may be most notable for the major reveal that occurs, but what makes it work as an issue are the smaller character moments that put a personal dilemma inside this otherworldly conflict.

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Apr 4, 2019

    This issue shows the team refusing to give up their ideals, even though reality itself is at stake. Just when I think Snyder's raised the threat level as high as it can go, he seems to nudge the stakes a bit higher. I can't wait where this is all leading. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Apr 3, 2019

    In spite of a disappointingly-abandoned thread from last issue, Justice League #21 is a beautifully-written and illustrated book. The larger story takes a huge step forward, and"to ride the coat tails of another popular franchise"one gets the sense that we're in the endgame now. I can't wait to see what happens next.
