"The Justice Doom War" part five! All Hypertime is breaking! If it blows, all of reality will follow after-which would be just fine for Lex Luthor, who is ready to prove to the evil goddess Perpetua that he's the bad man for her. The Justice League is attempting to do what they can, chasing the Legion of Doom across the time-sphere. If the Totality is put back together, the whole Multiverse will tip toward Doom...and have consequences that reverberate throughout the DC Universe-assuming it's not destroyed in the process.

    Justice League is providing the blueprint on how to do an event right. This story doesnt have to have 40 spin-offs and Snyder and Tynion prove fully capable of telling a grand, sweeping story thats organically playing out without any rush to wrap it anytime soon. And Justice League readers are all the better for this epic style of storytelling. Read Full Review

    I have no clue as to how Snyder and Tynion could get the League out of the situation this issue leaves them in, which makes me that much more eager to see how they will accomplish this. So, far the Justice/Doom War has lived up to its hype as the ultimate battle in the League's history. So, how can they recover from losing it? Read Full Review

    Redondo and Porter nail the tone of this story with the art. Everything is filled with detail, gravity and energy. Read Full Review

    Justice League #34 is perhaps the most rewarding installment ofJustice Doom War yet. Snyder and Tynion begin to pay off a year and a half of storytelling, and they do an admirable job, at that. Redondo and Porter hardly have complimentary styles, but they're both more-than-capable artists, and each brings his A-game to every page. Hi-Fi's colors are the great unifier, and Napolitano lays down a mountain of text with ease. The story is far from over, but this chapter is definitely a milestone worth savoring. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 16, 2019

    With Justice League #34, the best event book on the stands continues to be this series " even though its "event" is only a standard-sized comic released in the main title, with no tie-ins aside from the loosely connected Year of the Villain branding. That's because writers Snyder and Tyn Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Oct 16, 2019

    Justice League #34raises the stakes in every imaginable way, ending with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that leaves our heroes in a dark place. I cannot wait to see how the Justice/Doom War concludes next issue, especially since Perpetua is at her full might. Read Full Review

    The tables have turned in this fifth part of a nine part story and there's so much good action and dialogue to be had. If you like war stories you're bound to love this story arc. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 16, 2019

    It's not a war without the big bad on the field and fully empowered. Everything having to do with the mission in the past was engaging, the mission in the future was a thrill, but what went on in the present was unfortunately a letdown. They could have chosen a better path which actually took us by surprise, but they didn't. Hopefully the next phase of ‘The Justice Doom War' helps to overlook that part. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Oct 16, 2019

    Justice League #34 handed a big fat L to the Justice League with their most pivotal player choking when the team needed her most. You can't blame her, there's a lot at stake and she wants to make Luthor pay for what he's done. Okay, maybe you can blame her. But her mistake only sets her up for a stellar comeback.

    I knew that Hawkgirl was going to screw everything up. Ever since Jonn had died, shes been a damn mess. She gave into rage, which in this story at least, is EVIL! The whole story is just totally up-ended now. We finally have reached the end of the first of three chapters and now its time for darkness to reign. Once again, my only nitpick is that the pages seem cluttered. Read Full Review

    Overall: Justice League #34 is another excellent read. Snyder and Tynion continue to make Justice League the most fun and exciting superhero comic books currently on the market. If you are a fan of classic superhero stories then I would definitely recommend jumping aboard Justice League. I would also urge any fans of DC's Multiverse to give Justice League a try, too.

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Oct 18, 2019

    A good Justice League book with inconsistent art. At times this comic looks great, and other times it is down right ugly. Thankfully, Tynion IV and Snyder save it with their writing, and The Justice/Doom War seems to be going in some interesting places. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 16, 2019

    Snyder and Tynion move the story into the next phase this week, but it didn't feel like it was totally ready for it.  Maybe it was me who wasn't ready, but I felt like a needed a bit more information from all the time periods and would have liked to hang just an issue or two more to get it.  The art was great throughout and the ending was certainly big, and even if I wasn't fully on board here, I will be back in two weeks expecting it all to get right back to form...not that that will help our heroes!  Seriously, they are in big trouble!

    Justice League #34 could be a pretty powerful statement of what's coming next for the DC Universe, as the past and future converge in an attempt to stop Luthor and his Legion of Doom from tipping the cosmic balance towards Doom. Read Full Review
