"Justice/Doom War" finale! Lex Luthor is triumphant. Perpetua is back to full power and ready to take on the Multiverse, to bend and twist the whole of existence to suit Doom. Has the Justice League finally come up against a foe they can't defeat? Perpetua is the mother of their universe after all, the original creator. In war, there can only be one winner, and it just may be Doom's turn to collect the spoils. This issue leads directly into Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #1!

    We dont have to think too hard about how that would look thanks to the sensational artwork from Jorge Jimenez and Daniel Sampere. They rise to the challenge of the script with some intense pages that look even better with Alejandro Sanchezs colors. Read Full Review

    Jimenez and Sampere bring their best to the art in this issue. The art is beautiful, sweeping and filled with brilliant details. The action is fantastic and the characters are rendered with palpable emotion. An awesome looking issue. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 18, 2019

    We all awaited for this moment when the Justice League would rise higher than they ever did before in this event, and they did not disappoint when the moment came. It was nerve-wracking, it was brutal, and it was even heartbreaking. It is at times like this when you really want your patience and investment to be rewarded, and the events of Justice League #38 rewarded us well. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Dec 18, 2019

    Characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman have taken a back seat during this run so others could get the spotlight. And I'm glad that that's the case. But It was also great to see this moment play out with these characters. Their intertwined stories made it a more than earned scene. And I think it ultimately did its job, as it wound up taking Lex down a few pegs. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 18, 2019

    This is a fun fight comic with a deeper meaning in its second half, but total fun all the way through. Jimenez should be commended for his detailed and dynamic art, never letting us down every fist-to-the-face of the way. If this Lex fight is any indication, we're in for a world of surprises and excitement in the finale. Read Full Review

    To think that this is just the prologue to whatever wild story Snyder and Capullo have for us next. All prequels should be this good. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 18, 2019

    Scott Snyder gets all the pieces in place for the big battle next issue and I liked it.  We get to see what a threat Lex is, but also how the power of being good can combat that to the bitter end.  The art is really good as well and if you aren't fired up by the time you are done looking at the cliffhanger page, you might be a hobo.

    But Why Tho? - CJ Dec 18, 2019

    Justice League #38may be a place setting issue, but it features some stellar artwork and a wallop of an ending. With the finale to the Justice/Doom War, and subsequently the finale to Snyder's run on this title, I hope that he closes it the same way he began: in grand style. Read Full Review

    With Justice League #38 being the penultimate issue of Scott Snyder's run on the title, next issue will bring us the conclusion of the Justice/Doom War. While we might assume that the League will be victorious, we also know that this storyline is feeding into the “Hell Arisen” storyline. So, victory isn't certain. Will it be more of a stalemate? Or might Perpetua and Luthor win? I can't wait to see how Snyder finishes this story off. Read Full Review
