    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Aug 7, 2019

    As we head into the “Justice/Doom War,” Snyder, Tynion IV, Redondo, and Jarro refresh our memories on the past few years of the DC Universe in a way that still manages to flesh out the characters of the story– especially some of the ones lacking exposure. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 7, 2019

    Justice League #29 may have been all about Jarro, but it was also one of the most engaging issues for diving into the fortitude a hero must achieve when faced with a crisis. These are the moments that genuinely define a hero, and Jarro has found his as an entity that was once called a conqueror. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 7, 2019

    As the final warm up, this was not the lead-in I thought we'd be getting, which made for a fun detour before the war gets underway. Year of the Villain's main title is building to some major storylines so it should be an exciting few months. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 7, 2019

    Jarro is a fun character that easily could have wound up like Dex-Starr " a novelty that's trotted out to applause on occasion " but this issue indicates that Tynion might have much more nuanced plans. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Aug 7, 2019

    Justice League #29's recapping is, at times, a slog; but the Star of this show is Jarro, and no Starro has ever shone brighter. At its peaks, this book is hilarious, action-packed, and even heartwarming"and that's more than enough to make up for the valleys. Even if you don't make a habit of buying Justice League, this one is worth it all by itself. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 8, 2019

    Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV are able to lay out big plot points of the last couple of years while indulging some of Jarro's fantasies and it makes for a funny, heartfelt break from the usual big picture plot machinations we get in Justice League. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 7, 2019

    This issue is a combination of great (Jarro!) and frustrating.  There are some huge moments, but they are lessened a bit by a lack of information.  Still, it all looks great and Jarro is just so much fun. Read Full Review
