    Geekery Magazine - Shawn A. Warner Jul 23, 2018

    Although we are only four issues into this run it is very quickly becoming my favorite on-going title. It delivers on all fronts, it's entertaining, it's verbose and imaginative. Snyder gives us heaping amounts of new and exciting elements without discarding what has made Justice League the greatest team title in comic book history. The balance of tone between darker elements and lighter moments is precise giving this book a depth not equaled by anything on the racks today. If you are looking for that one book that encapsulates everything we love about superhero comic books, the wait is over. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 18, 2018

    Justice League hasn't come close to disappointing yet. This book hits all the sweet spots from its early days the anything goes Grant Morrison style and top tier lineup from the Geoff Johns era. Justice League has quickly ascended to the role of DC's flagship title and looks to firmly keep that spot locked up for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Jul 18, 2018

    I loved how this issue gives the Justice League more of a backseat. Instead, we get treated to the Legion of Doom's perspective. The first couple of panels giving us some insight into Gorilla Grodd's mindset were absolutely chilling, and they were excellent for setting the stage for what's to come. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jul 18, 2018

    Snyder has ramped the stakes up to an unprecedented level. It's like the League was having to deal with two or three Crisis-level events simultaneously. Doing so is something of a risk, but it's definitely paying off.Snyder has returnedJustice League back to its rightful place as a cornerstone title of the DC lineup. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Jul 18, 2018

    Just when you thought that the situation couldn't get any worse for the already-failing members of the Justice League, writer Scott Snyder manages to pour salt in their wounds and remove any last slivers of hope. Justice League (2018-) #4 is an impressive issue and offers a genuinely exciting reading experience. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 20, 2018

    That is a lot of story. I am really rocked by this series and how much Snyder and Jimenez are stuffing into the pages. There are such wild images to see here. From the Lantern ring shattering, to the Keep floating in a sanctuary, to Aquaman/Diana punching each other, to Grodd looking like a dad carrying his baby around the mall, this whole thing is bananas. Bananas in the best way. Seven primal forces, the Multiverse on Earth, Umbrax the living sun ... it all has to come together. For my sanity, I hope so. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Dispatchdcu Jul 18, 2018

    Four issues into the run and we have excellent pacing, fantastic art, amazing layouts, reasons that can be explained, action, adventure, a task for almost every member of the Justice League, and it's just a fun read. Yes! If you haven't added it yet, you're just late to the party now. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Jul 18, 2018

    Jorge Jimenez's art is both brilliant in its detail and surreal in its beauty, especially in the backgrounds and space scenes. He has a great use of focus in many of the scenes, but leaves so much visually to consume that you are able to take in the focus and enjoy the backgrounds equally. This is definitely a series that continues to grab my attention with each issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jul 17, 2018

    Justice League #4 displays the book's balance as more characters are explored without sacrificing the other things that make this series work so well. If we've learned anything other than the fact that Snyder is reaching for GOAT status with this book " it's that Justice League is a model of consistency. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jul 19, 2018

    Thats not a bad thing, and the art does make the most of it. The tale ends with a particularly eerie illustration by Jimenez. The colouring, by Alejandro Sanchez, is critical for pulling off the mood of the finale. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joshua Hilgenberg Jul 18, 2018

    Justice League #4 is a team book that's fun to look at and fun to read. Snyder is at his best when he can play in wild scenarios and churn out enticing conversation, which is exactly the writing in this issue. Sanchez balances the three pronged storytelling with his thoughtful colors. Each character looks distinctly their own thanks to Jimenez. Their personality is infused into their appearances. The hype around these books is absolutely justified, and a must buy for DC fans. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Jul 18, 2018

    Overall, I really liked this issue and I cannot wait to read the next issue and see how Snyder gets the justice league to defeat the legion of doom. The art by Jimenez was fantastic and really proves why he is considered to be a superstar artist. With the source wall breaking it’s interesting how Snyder is trying to expand not only the justice league mythos but the individual mythos of each character. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 20, 2018

    Steadily building since No Justice, this fourth issue feels like a real climax to the story so far, even though we still have at least two issues left in this opening arc. But even just as a single issue, #4 succeeds thanks to titanic artwork, a clever script, and truly huge stakes for DC's A-listers. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Keagan Morgan Jul 18, 2018

    Please check into this issue and the previous few (at least) if you haven't already. The art continues to be out of this park and perfectly matching the overall aura and environment of this creative team and the League they have assembled. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 18, 2018

    Scott Snyder has been all over the map in terms of genres in his time at DC, covering horror, adventure, coming-of-age, and even philosophical epic. But he's never quite done widescreen comic book action until now, and Justice League #4 is the blockbuster showdown to end all blockbuster showdowns. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Kevin Gunn Jul 18, 2018

    Jorge Jimnez continues to amaze with his imagery. He and Snyder are a great team. If James Tucker decides to turn this arc into a DC Original Animated Movie, I hope he has the sense to bring Snyder and Jimnez in as consultants. Take my money, Warner Animation! Follow these outlined steps, and you can have every penny! Sold! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Jul 18, 2018

    This run on Justice Leaguehas hit us with the sort of big, almost-impenetrable concepts that such books often do; but writer and artists have grounded the whole affair in concepts and characters with strong resonance. Justice League #4moves the proceedings closer to the endgame, and while the universe-threatening forces set against our heroes from inside and out are still quite mysterious, the compelling, unashamed villains and tremendous visual storytelling make those intimidating mysteries worth the extra time needed to grasp them.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 19, 2018

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jul 27, 2018

    Even with the aforementioned tropes this series tends to take, Snyder still crafts a fun and interesting read alongside the expert pencil work of Jorge Jimenez. With Justice League Odyssey and Justice League Dark around the corner New Justice is off to a great start Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jacob Robert Nuckolls Jul 23, 2018

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 18, 2018

    While I'm still invested in what's going on with the Justice League and the Legion of Doom in this title, I feel like this issue's grasp exceeded its reach because while I want to see these new concepts that Scott Snyder is throwing at us, I think it faltered a bit here with how they were presented......... because I was confused as hell.  I loved the art in this issue and had some fun through most of the issue, I just wish it was a bit more accessible in what it's trying to convey.   Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jul 28, 2018

    Amazing art saves this otherwise average read, I think Snyder needs to find his team book legs he's trying too hard to set up 14 stories at once, I much prefer the route Tynion went in Detective Comics recently, making each arc a vignette highlighting a different team member. Not to say Snyder isn't possibly building to that but I feel like this opening arc is starting to unravel a bit. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 8, 2019

    When a book is so overstuffed and complicated in a way to be so uninteresting that you won't even read it for free, you know you're lost on it. I may try skimming the other issues as they come up and potentially try with the next arc to get into it all again, but with this spinning out of No Justice and all its complications there that I haven't read, Justice League is just a mess.
