    Snyder and Tynion have now set up the ultimate high-stakes fight between the forces of Justice and Doom. The entire multiverse is on the line and Lex Luthor is at the height of his power. Justice League looks to be the title where the fate of the entire DCU is going to be determined. Skipping this story is not an option for any serious DC fan. Read Full Review

    While the scene with the Justice League felt a bit off, it was the moments between Lex Luthor and J'onn J'onnz that made this issue as gripping as it is. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jul 30, 2019

    As the Year of the Villain proceeds, Justice-Doom War rears its head in wait as the next chapter will kick off this explosive chapter in the Leagues mythos. The duo continues to work excellently together, with Tynion able to deliver exceptional characters moments on top of Fernandezs ability to layout these quiet issues and still keep them exciting for the readers. With the prologue chapter up next, new readers will have the perfect opportunity to join along as the Justice League face down against the creator of the multiverse itself. Read Full Review

    "Apex Predator" goes out with a bang, setting the stage for the future of Snyder and Tynion's grand Justice League epic. Tynion is writing better than ever, Fernandez and Sampere pool their strengths to create an entire issue that looks good, and I couldn't be happier. You should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 17, 2019

    Justice League is changing the way you think about Lex Luthor in a big way. Seeing as he's at the center of the "Year of the Villain" event, this is a must-read to gain an understanding of the bigger picture. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 17, 2019

    Justice-Doom War is coming, and after the events of Justice League #28? You would be crazy to not be all in for what comes next! Nothing right now is what you prepared for at this stage in the story, and that is what keeps you coming back for more. This isn't that story where the heroes overcome obstacle after the next with little challenge. These are our gods among men struggling to beat back a team that you wouldn't have originally blinked twice at. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 17, 2019

    Lex Luthor reveals more of his plan and it's all about upgrading and jacking himself up to the next level.  I wish there was more for the Justice League to do besides run into a dead (very dead!) end, but I am still enjoying the series and am excited to see where it's going.  Read Full Review

    Not a bad issue, but Year of the Villains is pretty slow& despite its name, we don’t see many villains in it up until now. Sure it’s not Year of the Heroes ( oh wait that’s every year anyway)? Instead of concentrating on the villains, Lex is trying to make his offer to many heroes as well. This time it’s Martian Manhunter. What’s weird, that Lex‘s outfit looks like he borrowed it from Desaad.
    While Lex is talking to J‘onn, the league is facing 3 members of the legion of doom, which is quite underwhelming.
    There’s also a timeline error. Batman is fighting in the league, while in Kings Batman run he just broke his back& is somewhere walking in the mountains. Year of The Villains just doesn’t fit well with some runs more

    This JL issue finally puts some meat on the bones of this Year of the Villain concept, at least from Lex Luthor's perspective. That in and of itself is appreciated.

    James Tynion's writing is so terribly overwrought. He could use half the words and get at least as much meaning out of the book. But his problem isn't unique; most writers should confine themselves to a study hall with a few trade paperbacks from the pre-Alan Moore days and see how comic writing was done. Simpler, yes, but at least as effective. That's not to say that Moore was a bad writer, not in the least. He is a fantastic writer, but he is unique with his skillsets. Most writers simply can't do comics like he does (or, I guess, did).

    But, and th more

    Here we are. The prologue of Year of the Vilain. I think there has been a problem with marketing because all of this "The Offer" month has been bullshit, the real stuff will begin next month. However, everything has been put in place for a great summer event and I'm pretty hyped for this. The great thing is that it really feels that it is an event reaching across the all DC universe. With JL, JLO, JLD, Batman/Superman and all the tie in, it seems like it was well thought.
    Coming back to this issue, we got a lot twists and it was a blast. The art was great and i really love Tynion IV writing. My only problem is that even if I love Luthor's plan and actions, it doesn't feel like this is what he would do but it is not a big issues.

    This Justice League run has been so much fun. My favorite title from Snyder and/or Tynion to date.

    Good issue. Builds upon the Lex/Manhunter friendship and gives an insight into what this year of the villain is really about. My one complaint, which really extends to all comics, is how the timing of events works. In this issue, we see Batman with the team, but Luthor said he extends his offer, and we see Bane, who in King's Batman, is ruling Gotham, and Bruce is nowhere to be seen. Just curious continuity is all, but otherwise this is good filler up until Snyder can return and really kick off the event.
