John Stewart: Ultraviolet Lantern? Believe it! Under the influence of the Ultraviolet Spectrum, John Stewart engages in some ultraviolence against his teammates Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Meanwhile, the rest of the League investigates the scene of the fallen Source Wall fragment, and encounters not only a horde of giant monsters, but a pair of longtime archenemies using stolen Atom technology to literally get under their skin. Best to stock up on Cortizone for that sort of itch! All this and...the Turtle? Yep.

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Jul 4, 2018

    It's taking a long time to figure out just what the hell is going on, but I'm enjoying the ride. Snyder has crafted a Justice League story where no one feels like an afterthought. Every member of the League gets a chance to shine, and even the villains are given their fair due. For any other writer, I'd be nervous about whether the arc could stick the landing, but I trust Snyder. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Eric Mitchell Jul 4, 2018

    There is nothing I can find wrong with this book. This is one of the strongest stories that Scott Snyder has written and it shows. Jimenez is flawless in his art and it fits so well. This is a comic book team that I want to see so much more from. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jul 11, 2018

    Yet again, Snyder and Jimenez display, in expert fashion, exactly why the Justice League are the world's greatest superheroes. Each issue grander than the last, this run continues to bring readers in and prove itself as it towers above the competition. The Justice League by Scott Snyder is the book of Summer 2018.

    Comic Crusaders - Jennifer DeRoss Jul 4, 2018

    Generally speaking, people know what they are going to get when they pick up a Justice League book: lots of superheroes that battle enemies on a large scale. This has been true since their creation. Because it is so long-running, this formula can sometimes feel tired or simply not as exciting. This issue counters that and continues to prove that this run is a must read as it returns the Justice League to its roots and then goes back even further. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 10, 2018

    Jorge Jimenez is crazy good in this book. I would love for Jimenez to get a turn on the Wonder Woman book because his Diana is especially engaging. I'm hooked. Exhausted and a little perplexed. But hooked. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Dispatchdcu Jul 4, 2018

    This is the best the Justice League has been in years. YEARS! Be warned: the issue is dense with material and can be heavy to read at times. But, that's not a bad thing. It means Snyder is being thorough, creative, and changing the landscape of the DC Comic Universe. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jul 17, 2018

    I do enjoy it when the start of a new series seems to serve a purpose, rather than just being a gimmick for a quick buck. This arc so far feels like a good jumping on point for a new reader, but different and interesting enough to keep a seasoned veteran interested. Great book. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Ryan Perry Jul 4, 2018

    Scott Snyder has been a great writer for a while, but Justice League is really just a credit to his growth as a creator. His ability to direct the entire DC Universe is, at this time, unparalleled. Jorge Jimenez is his perfect partner in this, so much so that I'll be sad to see Jim Cheung return. This is the Justice League book readers have been waiting for since Grant Morrison left JLA. Through these first three issues, this issue has in every way topped Geoff Johns' New 52 run. You're doing yourself a disservice not reading this book as it's everything the Justice League should be. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jul 4, 2018

    Justice League seems to be one of the hot points where the mysteries raised by Rebirth are playing out. Snyder is also giving us a kick-ass story at the same time. Snyder has brought the League's main title back to being the centerpiece of the DC lineup. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jul 5, 2018

    Justice League #3 has some moments of visual malaise, but largely succeeds on all fronts. Snyder creates some short-but-impactful moments for Cyborg and Sinestro, Jimenez and Sanchez craft artwork that is both highly-functional and beautiful, and Napolitano subtly uses the placement of the narration boxes to help guide and emphasize. The overall story remains compelling enough, and with high-quality installments like this one, Justice League is a no-brainer for your pull list. Read Full Review

    There should be very few people upset with the line up as it harkens back to the animated series, plus ups the overall team diversity with Hawkgirl and John Stewart coming back into play. And yes, Cyborg is still on as well, which I think is good. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 4, 2018

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 6, 2018

    Justice League #3 already shows some of the weak points of the story, but they are far from a problem significant enough to sink the book yet. The comic still provides a lot of fun and high energy storytelling. The art has its flaws, but the book still looks good on the whole. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 4, 2018

    While Lex Luthor doesn't take center stage this issue like he has the last two, we have ourselves a complex story that does a lot of things and tries to convey a lot of ideas and while not all it works perfectly, what we get out of this is an interesting story that has some amazing art the whole way through.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 16, 2019

    I'm not exactly keen on the remainder of this arc but I want to see what comes after it to see if the series is still worth following so I'm going to be all-in for a few more issues. This issue just didn't work for me in more ways than I expected and it quickly became a chore to read. The scale of it has its moments but it never really connects right because it's just got a sense of too much too quickly without enough grounding to tie it together. Snyder has some good bits with dialogue and I'm endlessly interested in things related to the Source Wall, but that can't carry the issue. Jorge Jimenez brings a whole lot of life to the book and keeps it moving but it's struggling to find the throughline from the story itself since it's just action upon action upon action, even when they're just sitting around it feels tense.
