The "Justice Doom War" starts here! The Lex Luthor the League has known and fought is no more, replaced by an apex predator version of Lex, powered by Perpetua with a goal of bringing tragedy to the DC Universe. Now that Lex has powered up villains across the cosmos, he marshals his own troops, sparking a war between the Legion of Doom and the Justice League that will span space, time and the Multiverse itself. This is the start of the next big Justice League event, with consequences affecting "DC's Year of the Villain" and beyond!

    But Why Tho? - CJ Aug 28, 2019

    Justice League #30 masterfully brings several plot threads together while giving equal focus to both heroes and villains. It is also stunningly illustrated by one of the best artists in DC's roster. Given how the issue ends, I am more than eager to see the events of the Justice/Doom War and what effect it might have on the larger DC Universe. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 3, 2019

    Even without the JSA, I am eager to see where this story is headed, but I am especially eager to see what role the Justice Society plays in the story, and what the story will reveal about the Justice Society's place in the post-Doomsday Clock DCU. The Justice/Doom war is definitely shaping up to be a defining moment in the history of the Justice League. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Aug 28, 2019

    If you haven't been reading this series so far, this is a pretty good point to jump in. As I stated, it does a good job of streamlining the conflict of the past 29 issues and clearly stating what the good guys and the bad guys want. So, if you're not a completionist like me, jump right in blind! You won't be confused. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 28, 2019

    DC easily could have made this a standalone huge mini-series event, but are wisely going the more restrained route in letting this play out in their strongest title. While it's worth checking out what's come before if you've missed it, this is the real start to what everyone's going to be talking about from the main DC universe for the rest of 2019.

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Aug 28, 2019

    A great jumping on point for new readers. With Doom War starting now there is no better time to become invested in the series. While this issue has a lot to recap it still sets the stakes for things to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 28, 2019

    The Justice/Doom War is here and both sides are gathering an army and while Lex has the upper hand as we start, the Justice League are trying to turn the tide.  It involves time travel craziness and that allows Snyder and Company to (re)introduce some awesome guest stars into the book (Universe?) and it all looks great to boot.  I am so ready for my favorite heroes to start winning and I hope this is the start!

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 28, 2019

    As the start to the Justice League/Doom War, I would say that they did more than enough to kickstart what has been issues in the making. There was a good introduction into what has happened up to this point, and they quickly set the tone for what's to come through a more genuine understanding of the stakes. Then they pulled no punches showing once more that these heroes will be facing an uphill battle to turn things around in their favor. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 28, 2019

    That said, Justice League #30 isn't always the easiest read to connect with " this is a big blockbuster through and through, and it's one designed to appeal to fans' sense of continuity and a larger shared universe, even if the broader core themes of justice versus doom might feel a little unwieldy upon close examination.

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Aug 28, 2019

    Justice League #30 may have a verbally-saggy middle, but the overall impression is quite positive. There's plenty of excitement surrounding that mushy center, and enough visual delights to sustain my eyes across space and time. Perhaps most importantly, there is Jarro, and I would follow that sassy starfish into the bowels of the earth"or any other bowels for that matter. Read Full Review
