    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jun 19, 2019

    Whether Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez or James Tynion and Javier Fernandez, these creatives have their game plan so tight each issue only allows for the series to grow even stronger. While each writer has their strong suits over one another, the vast array of artistic talents to grace the pages of the series allow for varying flavors depending on the nature of each particular issue or story arc as previously seen with Jimenez on the last arc. This issue stands as another testament to the love and dedication these creators have for this series and the Universe as a whole. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jun 19, 2019

    Justice League #26 ushers in a new arc filled with comic book eye candy, hella stressed heroes, and an expanded team that brings me back to the days of Justice League Unlimited, when the whole DC squad could pull up on you. Read Full Review

    Paired with the art of Javier Fernandez and the colors of Hi-Fi, this is one fantastic comic and a great entry-level issue for those readers who aren't yet reading one of DC Comics' best titles. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jun 22, 2019

    VerdictThere's not a lot of action in this issue, but the tension is clearly building as the League is drawing on all their resources to ready themselves for the ultimate war of Justice vs. Doom. We are on the edge of DC's most ambitious event yet. Scott Snyder has been quoted as saying about Justice League, I wouldnt call it anything but an event book going forward.” He and James Tynion IV are definitely delivering on that promise.

    James Tynion and new artist Javier Fernandez jump on board for an issue, Justice League #26, following the conclusion of the massive 6th dimension storyline, and they don't miss a beat in continuing to increase the stakes in the most epic Justice League run in years. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Jun 20, 2019

    This week's Justice League is a great comic to pick up. Everything you need to know that is to come on the title is contained here. While this is a stop gap in the story so far, it does not completely go without moments of intrigue. In particular, if you are a Martian Manhunter fan this comic shows an understanding of the character that few have hit. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Michael Fromm Jun 19, 2019

    Though it isn't as exciting as anything from the "Sixth Dimension" story,Justice League #26is an admirable entry in this series, easily setting up its new arc, while also adding crucial bits to the "Year of the Villain" event. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 19, 2019

    A threat like no other is approaching and this issue captures the tension in the room very well. A war is coming and it's interesting to see the heroes' perspectives, since they know they're at a disadvantage further enhancing reader anticipation for the event of the year. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Legion - Kelly OneShot Jun 19, 2019

    Ultimately I felt this was an important issue that really sets the stage for everything that is about to come and I feel like the creative team has done a great job at conveying the weight and scope of this overarching narrative and I'm excited to see how all this issues revelations will play out in the further stories to come.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 19, 2019

    Scotty Snyder says the Justice League is now an Event book and James Tynion makes it feel that way right off the bat.  Of course, that can be a good and bad thing and while the jury is still out on whether or not they can make it work, this issue has my hopes up a bit.  If you haven't been reading Justice League up until now, you might want to at least check this issue out and see if it tickles your fancy.

    Impulse Gamer - Matt Fischer Jun 25, 2019

    This is a strong 4 out of 5. If there was just a bit more moving the story along, it would be another 5 for Snyder, but having the chance to see all these heroes together and acting like friends again is something that DC has been lacking in many titles for a long, long, time. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jun 19, 2019

    It's a brave new world for the omniverse as a whole. This fight for the future of everything is now beyond just the fight of the Justice League. Every person who has a stake in this made an exciting appearance, and I do hope there is more to encounter as the plot thickens. Justice League #26 served its purpose well in addressing what comes next and what these heroes have to do to prepare themselves for the worst to come. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Andy Nickelsen Jun 21, 2019

    While James Tynion and Javier Fernandez do a great job of showing us the calm before the storm as the JL prepare for impending doom, as the identity of the cloaked figure is sure to be a big factor in the coming issues. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jun 19, 2019

    In terms of excitement, Justice League #26 is definitely a valley compared to the peak of the last issue. This “breather” between big arcs is probably just what the book needs, though it feels like it didn't need these 20 pages of it. Still, Tynion's dialogue is somewhat improved, Fernandez is mostly on target, and Hi-Fi and Napolitano put a nice professional finish on top of everything else. Enjoy it once or twice, don't expect too much, andJustice League #26 should leave you satisfied enough until the next one. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Adrian Care Jun 19, 2019

    There’s a fair bit of prelude to this issue, and each arc has yet to free itself from the larger ongoing arc. To a new reader or a casual fan, though, this is way too overwhelming a read to take on. To a loyal reader who has stuck with the series from its big opening, the jury’s still out on whether the recurring cast and plot threads are still intriguing, or if it’s all starting to feel a little bit tired and too familiar.
