Eons ago, the Monitor, the Anti-Monitor and the World Forger stopped the rise of Perpetua-but can they overcome billions of years of mistrust to work together and do it again? Plus, Lex Luthor's offers across the DC Universe haven't gone unnoticed-Martian Manhunter is aware of "the Offer." And J'onn J'onnz will pay the price.

    VerdictWe have been promised that every issue of Justice League will now be an event issue, and the team of Snyder and Tynion have been delivering. With the Year of the Villain starting up, it would be a good idea for any DC fan to start reading this title if they aren't already. Read Full Review

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

    Week after week standing uncontested currently as the premiere superhero team book on the market, Justice League and the creatives behind the title continues to stand head and shoulders above all of their contemporaries. Weaving in old forgotten continuity into their own original ideas continues to be lucrative for the creators as each issue continues to build anticipation for Doom War and the ramifications of that final showdown.

    The art by Fernandez and Redondo is great. There is a great contrast between the different styles, but everything remains harmonious as the story progresses. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 3, 2019

    The art this issue is a little wonky, as the shifts between Fernandez and Redondo are incredibly noticeable, but it's overall another strong issue in a great run. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Michael Fromm Jul 3, 2019

    The story and artwork featuring Martian Manhunter is strong and on point, making up for the middle pages in "Apex Predator" which comes off as a bit flimsy. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jul 3, 2019

    Justice League #27sees writer James Tynion find sure footing for the first time in quite a while. The dialogue is believable, the plot engaging, and the drama unclouded by clunky metaphors. Fernandez, Redondo and Hi-Fi turn in quality pages overall, and there are a few standout moments, as well"including one with some deftly-detailed SFX work from Napolitano. I've long said that Justice Leaguecan't maintain its quality without Snyder doing the writing, but I'm happy to say that, this week, Tynion and co. have proven me wrong. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 3, 2019

    This issue was a bit of a fast read in contrast to the issues before, but you can't always expect something big to unfold. Right now Justice League is in that phase where once more they are setting up to something big. That big thing is the rise of Perpetua. At this stage you expect that the plot progresses with all the pieces being moved to the right place for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 3, 2019

    This issue is a mix of a huge scene that felt rushed and a couple other scenes that lasted a bit too long.  It kind of works itself out in the wash and overall, I liked this issue enough.  It's not my favorite issue of the series, but good art and the crazy cliffhanger have me looking forward to the next issue.

    The Batman Universe - Andy Nickelsen Jul 5, 2019

    We move the story forward, and while I appreciate making the previous crisis relevant, not following up with all the set up of needing help from heroes from other Earths to find the Monitors in issue #26, is a disappointment. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Jul 3, 2019

    While James Tynion IV does his best to keep this arc feeling important during Scott Snyder's brief break from the series, he's let down by a really bad showing by his artists that unfortunately make this issue look very much like a filler arc. Read Full Review
